Not in love with the Manix design, but that's a lotta knife for the money!

That's a nice offering at a great price and helps bridge the large gap between bd1 and s110v.

I have the Native that they did (I think it was them?) with the same steel / handle treatment from a few years back and it's a very nice combo.

I feel like this would have been a better zombie knife in toxic green or with XXXHP steel. It's okay, I guess.

If it weren't for all the sprints and exclusives I'd get one, XHP is terrific and the manix is a fantastic platform.

So I guess the Golden factory expansion really increased their production capacity because they keep cranking out these golden exclusives, sprints, and production models.

That seems like a pretty good deal to me. I already have a few M2 LW's and wouldn't mind having one in XHP. The brown doesn't really do anything for me so I'll pass on this one.

CTS-HXP is one of my favorite steels, I'm in but man this makes like 3 pre-orders at KC now, this has been such an expensive year for me.

XHP is great. Not a fan of the brown.

I'm not a fan of the brown either but, for what you get (CTS-XHP and made in the USA) for that price, it was a pre-order in for me!

On a side note, I'm guessing that the orange Cutlery Shoppe version is going to get the s90v treatment since KnifeCenters will have the cts-xhp.

I LOVE the Manix 2, but that color is awful.

Wow, I was planning on buying just 3 knives this year and I'm already up to 6 with 2 more planned, and now this comes along. I like the steel and the handle color, but i'm also interested in trying out Maxamet and have an Ouroboros on pre-order :confused:

It wold be funny if that one dropped at around the same time just like the two M4 Para2s from BladeHQ and Knifeworks.
Anyway, it's easy for me to say no to this brown version. Way too many knives clamoring for my dollars these days!

Nice price and I like the XHP but just not a fan of the lock.

Really love XHP, but thankfully I don't like the color so I think I will be able to actually pass, especially with Maxamet dropping.

I have this, the Maxamet version, and the Cru-wear Para 2 on preorder. There are several other releases and variants I am eyeing too. Spyderco's getting all my attention again haha.

I've always not regretted not getting their native but at this point I'll pass. I'm doing serious trimming to the collection.
