    I got my order through at 8:05 AM, but since it was for a M2-XL, I can't exactly claim I'm among the first, since they've been out since about November. But since there were only 50 of them, the thrill of getting another chance to be in the hunt for one was probably more keen than with the CF Yo2.

    This excitement with sprints and exclusives was probably what got me addicted to Spydies. I was late getting my first, the dark green PM2 but found a CC and paid ~ $50 extra for it. Then the Forum Native and K-390 mule came along and I was in bed with the flu and about 103 or 104 degrees F fever and could barely move, but I dragged myself up enough to log in and buy them the minute SFO started taking orders

Luckily for me I live close enough to the border that this is a viable option for me. I picked up my Kahr delica there today, and a few weeks back my Elmax PM2. With decent border lines the round trip can take less than an hour.

    Edit: Sometimes I take the wife and kids and we make a day of it, go to Seattle or something. I'm always sure to fill up the tank before heading home so I get those nice US gas prices
    Ah, gotcha

    First off, thanks to all for the knowledge provided on this forum. Also the enthusiasm for this run of knives is catching. I called back today to check on a couple of things. The Yojimbo 2 will ship in August, and the charge to the CC is only temporary and should "fall off" in a couple of days, as stated in previous posts.The card won't be charged until the knife is actually shipped and notification with tracking number will be made through email.

    I've gone from thinking that Spydercos where down right ugly, to per-ordering a carbon fiber, super steel, exclusive edition niche knife,whew!

    Nice. Yeah, Spyderco knives are not only beautiful, but an American Icon imo. You see that round hole, and you know........

    Thanks for the welcome, but I'm on to your little game. You offer welcome on one hand and send me to a link that you know will start a downward spiral into bankruptcy on the other. While you go out and get yourself a second job. Very interesting.

    What are your feelings on the Kahr Delica? Mine comes tomorrow.

    Thanks to you too MacLaren, icon sums it up pretty well.

    What can I say, we're a bunch of enablers

    I really like my Kahr Delica, I love the attention to detail on it. I grinded an endura down in an attempt to recreate my own "Jandura" and it worked ok, but it isn't very pretty. The work was done for me on the Kahr which I prefer. Unfortunately I am not the biggest FRN fan. I'm totally aware how awesome it is and how beneficial it can be but the knife is so light. Usually that's a good thing but I like a little more heft.

    2014 is turning out to be the year of the paramilitary 2 for me and nothing seems to be able to kick it from my pocket. The Manix 2 Cruwear might, we will see.

    I've got most of my bases covered with this purchase. I'm even gonna pass on the Cruwear Manix 2. The last thing on my list, unless there are surprises in the works, is the Kiwi 4.

    It is a "purty" knife isn't it? I'm surprised that the original listing by KW didn't sell out quicker than it did.

    I have to say that I'm pretty shocked that the Yo2 is still available.

    Me too, I think that the combination of being a sort of niche knife and the 230.00 price tag has slowed sales. If this offering was at 180.00 or so perhaps they would all be sold. We would be seeing them on E-bay for 230.00 or more.

    At $180.00 I would have got one by now but at $230.00 I am on the fence.

    It's the price tag for me. Sorry but s90v/CF doesn't warrant over 100 extra from the standard price. Great knife but as people say it's a niche product. Great looks but I have to pass

    I also say that if it was 180 or under it would have sold out

    I have to agree fellas- even though I have one ordered, Im kinda having second thoughts. I really thought it would come in at $180 max $200
    But, then again, its a peel ply S90v yo2. I would think a man could move it if he needed too....
