    Hi guys, Thank you all for your kind words!

    How did I use my Spydercos today? Stupidly.

    Hi xceptnl and Able Dog,

    I believe so; although the 2014 catalog does not label the FFG G-10 ones as "NEW" (I think they deserved the label!), the saber-ground ones are not there anymore.

    Manix 2 FFG G-10 blade finish and images

    Hi, (I don't know why my attached images do not show inline with the text, sorry about that)

    Saying it is beautiful is redundant, right?

    "older"? Aw! I got it in the Spyderco store in Golden on December 18th! The last place I'd expect to get an outdated one.

    Hello guys,

    I bought a Manix 2 G-10 FFG (not the XL) last month, and now while browsing the 2014 catalog I noticed it says this knife should have skeletonized liners. Mine has "integral" liners.
