You got one! Can't wait to hear your thoughts on rex45!
Yes I did!
And actually the by far most important reason (if not even the sole one) was that I wanted to try REX45 and the Manix 2 LW offers this steel in a package I know I´ll actually carry . If not for that steel I would not have gotten a second Manix 2 LW, since my BD1N model is perfectly fine (as a matter of fact I am still surprised how good BD1N really is).
Since I also absolutely have to have the upcoming Pac Salt ffg SE, won´t be able to resist the Rock Jumper SE AND plan to stick to my "not more than 10 Spydies - rule": A time of tough decisions is coming for me - since some of my current ones will have to go..
. Not necessarely a bad thing though, I think sometimes it is good to realize again: Even if one loves knives like most of us here do, in the end, well, they are just knives...
If I like REX45 as much as I expect, my Manix "dream team" would be the REX45 LW in PE plus a BD1N LW in full SE
It's Ok now, Wartstein. It's been a month, since they have started dropping here in the U.S.A.. So it's not really an Alert Thread
anymore. 99.9% of them have been sold here now.
You will love this one! Oh my goodness, is Rex 45 ever nice.
I had to buy two, just in case I dropped this one in the river, or something like that. I would be just sick at the loss, if I didn't have a back-up plan.
The secondary market prices now, will be a good bit higher.
Make sure to rub some silicone oil on it, from time to time.
