    To answer the question posed by the thread title, I'd say the best of the M2s is the S90V sprint, followed by the M4 sprint. If you include the LW versions, I'd say the S110V LW runs way ahead of the...

    Seriously, you need a different plan for working on knives. I'd consider putting something like a white hand towel or a strip of white paper towels down on your work surface. Small parts won't...

    No licks on the Manix 2 - it's a great knife. I find it a little "tall" in my pocket and hand, but it's popular for very good reasons. :)



    I agree on the gray. I've now got a bunch of...

    It's not speculative, it's just not correct. ;) The Manix 2 CBBL lock is not going to outperform the compression lock in the Para 2 or the locks in the Military, both of which also have thicker ...

    There's lots of room to debate that proposition. :spyder: ;)

    Same...

    I try to get the hell out of the way of a falling knife. I have had a couple of serious issues when I didn't. Puts the term "gravity knife" in a whole different light. :eek: :D :(

    Roger has disclosed the +400 possibility right up front on the page. Anyone who buys this knife for profit and doesn't take that into consideration needs a white cane and a dog... ;)

    At least one of us is just thinking in terms of the penalty for deciding we want this later, after KW sells all they've got. ;)

    I've seen them sold on eBay in the past six months for around $200, but even $300 is a lot lower than they were selling for before the second tranche was released.

    A year ago or so I would have been skeptical about this because I would have assumed that demand was strong enough to keep the price up. However, if you look at what the second group of 204P Para2...

    Yes on the drill press, but in most cases lateral pressure on the quill will sooner or later wear the bushings or bearings and you'll wind up with a pretty sloppy drill press, which is pretty...

    You must have very steady hands. I would use a spindle sander for that job if I wanted results that nice. ;)

    Reducing the washer thickness should increase side to side play. :)

    Yes, just normal manufacturing tolerances, probably not any manufacturing changes (though you never really know unless Sal or Eric chimes in). The side to side play would not be the washers. It is...

    That's very nice work. Nothing like a closeup to show off a good job, or one that wasn't so good. :)

    I don't think that's the reason there's going to be a frenzy over the Cruwear. Look at the reaction here - there's a lot of demand for it.

    Nah, I think all it shows is preference between S110V and Cruwear...that doesn't mean the Cruwear sprint won't be vacuumed up in a frenzy. :)

    I don't think you'd see any real world difference in resistance to tip breakage between a Para2 blade in, say, 3V or Curwear compared to S30V, M390/204P, or the other steels Spyderco has used in the...

    Maybe they plan on cutting with the scales instead of the blade? G10 has better edge retention and is tougher than FRN. :eek: :D
  24. Poll: S110V without any question at all.

    S110V without any question at all.
