    I bought mine just recently, couple weeks ago. F&F are outstanding. Fairy light for size. I like it a lot. But I always liked big Manix much more than little.

    probably you are correct that M XL is too big to carry all the time. I just got Ti Fluted Military. I love the knife. My favorite Military now, but this thing is huge, especially in the hand. Handle on Manix XL is just right fit for my hand, but you need to have a hand few sizes bigger than mine to fill Military. I know, that Spyderco is making couple folders even bigger. probably they are for NBA boys .

    I agree that the XL is without question too large for EDC. However my plain s30v is a perfect go to emergency knife for size, cutting ability, and general large duty tasks. I would recommend to anyone to get a holster if needed for the XL. I won't carry mine enough but I have one jic for the regular sized Manix.

    Big knives are popular. I like that they are exploring larger designs.

    I think I've just been spoiled by LBK's and medium big knives.

    I wear jeans to my office most days and I would have no problem carrying a Manix 2 XL everyday, and I have a Military in my EDC rotation as well. Knives like the Manix 2 and Para 2 work just fine for me weekdays so I don't need to carry a larger knife every day, I just like to carry it sometimes. Weekends I'm more likely to need a larger knife so I pick from my bigger knives on weekends.

    I was trying to miss out on this one but it lingered too long and my tax return came in so i pulled the trigger. I'll be edcing this for sure. I used to edc my C95 and that wasn't bad at all. If these stick around longer I'll pick up a second. Should get it tomorrow.

    I've gotta stay away from this thread... my s30v M2 XL is enough... but I've never had any peel ply CF.... When I decided not to buy this one in Dec, I had to buy a yo2 to make it up to me... I could sell the yo2 and s30v XL and it would almost pay for the s90v... but then I wouldn't have them.... and I've never sold any of my Spydies...

    If i get a second one donut i might. But i gotta say those manix are a tough breed. That particular knife went through a lot and it still works. The polymer cage is the weakest link though. I just have a hard time saying no to CF and S90V it's my weakness. I think i have all cf S90V spydercos produced so far.

    Bumping this thread because KW just updated the status of the Yo2 S90V, and is saying pre-orders on the 8th!

    Unfortunately, I will be camping all next week so I will be missing it darn. Maybe if I climb a tall enough tree I'll be able to find a signal though!

    I decided to pass on this knife. Fortunately for me it wasn't sold out very fast and I bought mine, when just very few left. I am very happy about this. It is a keeper.

    The Yo 2 CF/S90v is going to be $229.95 shipped in the USA.
    Also, for those who missed out on the Manix 2XL CF/S90v. Good news, Spyderco had about 50 NIB and are soon shipping to KW.
    That's about it.

    More S90v & CF please.......

    That's roughly 23% off the list of $299
    I was hoping it would 44-45% off. Are sprint runs not discounted as much?

    Thanks MCM! Now the only question is when Knifeworks will receive them to ship Their site saying Q4 I was surprised to see pre-orders pop up so early. Then again I'm not used to preordering knives so what do I know. Very exciting.
