I didn’t get a Rex 45 PM2 unfortunately but I got a CTS-204P from knifeworks. If I saw a new model with Rex 45 like a Manix 2 or Native I’d be sure to get one!

I sure hope there will be more Rex 45. Native 5 would be great. A Shaman would be even better, much better.

But none of this LW FRN/FRCP rubbish. Rex 45 deserves better than that.

The Rex45 Burnt Orange G-10 Sprint Runs came in ParaMilitary2, Para3 and Military models all made in U.S. It seems like there would be a good market for Native5 and Manix2 as well.

Would love a Native and Native LW in DLC Rex45 with Burnt orange. Would grab a Millie in this combo as well!

Hopefully a Golden made Wharncliffe Endura comes out in Rex 45, the Para 3 and Military are excellent!!!

I would love a Manix in Rex45, so long as it's at 66.5 HRC we got in the Militarys. If it's 64, like the PM2 and Para 3 were(from accounts I've read), I'll pass.

According to Ankerson's testing, the Rex45 Military had better edge retention than the K390 Mule, by 20 rope cuts. I'm not sure how close the Police in K390 is to those numbers, but it would be awesome to see some testing.

I'll second this. Shawn/DeadBoxHero's testing has shown that the Police 4 has comparable edge stability to Rex 45, it would be great to see if the wear resistance is any better than the Mule.

Where did you see this? Extra glad I got the Military the other day if that is the case! Somehow they are still in stock at National Knives at the retail price. They must have had one of the largest distributions of these.

A bit of random info. In Michael Christy's rex 45 video, someone commented that they rockwell tested their Para 2 rex 45 and got 66.5 hrc. This matches the number Sal mentioned a while back.
In that video he says that persons knife tested at 64 hrc.
Yes, within the video he is referring to a post by frankie_blades on Instagram. I am referring to the comment section of the you tube video, not the video.
I know I've seen other reports of 64 HRC, but don't remember where. I'll look. Maybe it was just an off batch? I'm not sure.

I know...this has to happen. It must. I hope they offer both DLC and satin this time around though. The Native and Manix look so dang good sporting DLC blades, liners, and hardware. And DLC would look killer with that burnt orange. Ive seen a few blade swaps people did and it looks amazing!

Manix 2 would be the perfect knife for this steel. I had the Para 3 for a while and desired a larger knife with it...I salivate thinking about a Manix. I'll take it in any handle scales color!
Currently have 18 :spyder: 's in 14 different steels.

DLC para3 PLEASE!!!

Yeah, they could do the PM2 and Para 3 in DLC with those awesome burnt orange scales and have no problems selling them out! I'd get a Para 3 for sure.

If the demand is there. We'll watch the request.

I'm thinking the demand is there, no? Easily for a Para 3 LW, but a Native LW, Manix LW, and G10 Native would all be insta buys for me as well.
