if you mean me, no i didn't do anything to the spine. The edge i put on it decreases from about 13 to 12 degrees per side as you get closer to the tip, giving just a little more cutting power at the tip.
Carrying 3 knives is perfectly normal :D

I got mine yesterday and it's another great addition to my collection :) I did have a couple of small issues though. When I changed the clip to tip up, I found out one of the clip holes hadn't been fully drilled out, luckily I just got some new drill bits and it was fixed in a few seconds. Also the knife had a very tight action, when I tried to loosen the pivot it was really hard (they must be using a different type of locktite). I didn't want to strip the screws but I must have just loosened the pivot enough to get a good action and now the knife is perfect :D

NIce photo!

Glad you got the minor kinks sorted out. I had similar issues with mine, but after adjusting my pivot about 1/8 or maybe even 1/16 of a turn, the action on mine is absolutely perfect now as well. Somebody at the factory got a little torque-happy with this run, but otherwise the quality is superb. :D

I had the exact same issue with mine regarding the pocket clip holes. One wasn't drilled properly or something. Also, Golden is using red loctite now. The last three PM2's and a Yojimbo have had it that I've disassembled. Mine was a bit stiff out of the box too but it worked in perfectly and after a day or so the blade was free falling without blade play.


Forced a patina last night.

Thanks! Plain mustard in thin lines for about 15 minutes at a time. Then wipe it down and do it again. I think I did 4 applications.

Is there an M4 PM2 coming out?.....Wow, no-one's mentioned it on the forums or Facebook at all.

Not even a little bit.

:D
Warhammer 40000 is- basically- Lord Of The Rings on a cocktail of every drug known to man and genuine lunar dust, stuck in a blender with Alien, Mechwarrior, Dune, Starship Troopers, Fahrenheit 451 and Star Wars, bathed in blood, turned up to eleventy billion, set on fire, and catapulted off into space screaming "WAAAGH!" and waving a chainsaw sword- without the happy ending.
