Got my order in. Guess I’ll finally see if I can grow to love the pm2. I’ll definitely be sanding some contouring onto the scales either way.

I'm really curious to see how long these last.

BBS has a lot of reputation issues, but this model is really desirable. Will the flippers snap them up and throw them on eBay at $250? Or will BBS hold them for a while?

Stoked about this one. Finally get to use K390 apples to apples in my favorite platform. I hope the heat treat is just as amazing as the P4.

Got my order in.

BBS causes me no complaint. If the same knife is available from two places and one observes MAP with free shipping/insurance, I go with that one. But here, BBS has done me (us?) a solid.

I’m excited as well. The Police model is a bit large for my usual knife interest, and the Urban doesn’t lock, so this is a far more preferred platform for me to try out K390.

I'm gonna give this a shot. Even though the pm2 is a bit bigger than I usually like to carry, it does seem like a great platform for the k390, from what I've learned about it here. I'm still hoping a para 3 or manix in this configuration will follow!

Just ordered one, this will be my first K390. For you folks that have used it, what are your likes/dislikes about the steel?

Although I already had this steel in the police model, much prefer the compression lock over the back lock.
Had to cave and grab it.

Doesn't look like these are as appealing to the flippers (lower profit margins), thank God!

So for users that love the PM2, this is a premium catch, and available for the time being.
Currently have 147 :spyder: 's in 40 different steels.

Not really. Remember, the Maxamet PM2 runs over $200 at other shops. If I had to choose between K390 and Maxamet, not sure what I'd pick.

Actually, this morning I was more annoyed about Taxes than BBS shipping costs ....

Could not resist. Order placed. Tried so hard to put it off, but my BBS Elmax has been one of the finest Spydercos in my collection. I also loved the foliage green scales it came with. It seemed only natural to get the ranger green PM2 to join it. This will be a user.

I temporarily lost control of of my senses and when I recovered, I found that I had ordered the green k390 and blue dlc m390 pm2s from Bentobox along with a k390 police 4 and TiCN pacific salt from BHQ.

I swear after these and the upcoming cruwear micarta shaman, I'm finished with buying knives for a long time.

Wow.... this is exactly what happened when I got the smurf pm3 from them.. Didn't ship till Tuesday. Exactly why I don't understand an inflated shipping cost. I hope it's better for everyone this time.
