I don't mind the ranger green. I would prefer this in a LW version.
But let me ask a question- would you prefer 10V over K390? It read that it runs at a higher RC.
Sorry, I thought I responded here, but I guess not.
As far as 10V vs K390 and their hrc numbers; the K390 PM2 and 10V PM2 had almost identical performance (edge retention - cutting cardboard) based on the testing I've seen. There probably won't be a difference in performance between them, so long as they're coming out of the same place. Seki K390 (65-66 hrc) is in a league of it's own. Several of the 10V PM2s tested, were around 64 hrc, and a lot of the K390 PM2s were 63-64.
Having said that, if Spyderco put out a batch of 10V Manix 2s with better performance than my K390 PM2, I'd buy one, and maybe prefer it? If the two are equal, I would prefer K390, but mostly because I'm already familiar with it, and not with 10V. Maybe I wouldn't notice any differences, but who knows.
