    I got one . Sent to to Razorsharp Travis for a regrind. It's a pretty thin zero grind now.



    IMO, great knife. Same formula as the normal PXL but without the clip which I hear is fairly uncomfortable. It also weighs 4.5oz instead of like 6-6.5oz in Micarta. Stainless liners, nylon bushings, smooth and great lockup. Made by Moki I believe so extremely high quality for the money.

    Biggest qualm would be it's fairly thick factory grind. Sharpens really easy and came very sharp. Prob something you could fix with a coarse stone if you dig the knife.

    Here are couple OEM pics next to a Manix2. No clue why they are upside down...lol.

    I'm not really into the looks but I'm curious about cutting performance. Would love a decent knife with a zero grind like Blake's.

    Looks... plain. I personally wouldn't spend the money on it. The grip looks awful to hold too. A bit like a block of wood.

    It's actually very comfortable. At least to my hands . Mainly due to the width of the handle with rounded edges. Fairly compact in the pocket too due to the lack of curves.

    Certainly not a knife for everyone. I was looking for something with a beefy liner lock and a thumbstud for sake of changing things up. It locks up with a very deep clunk. Solid engineering even if a bit odd.

    I have the micarta version and I really love every bit of this bulky piece of art. Nice regrinds Blake!

    Not a fan of the looks to be honest, but life would be boring if everyone liked the same stuff!
