Nice pics, Brian. I still haven't heard from KC, although I ordered as soon as they announced it and my acct says "1 ordered, 1 in stock." Seems like one time they called me to verify that I still wanted a pre-order I'd made, but not recently.

I was expecting the same brown as on the FRN Native CTS-XPH, which I like a lot, but come to think of it, this not even FRN :) and besides, I like the light brown FRCP equally well, and it'll be good for discrete carry because the lighter brown will blend better with khaki and other colors I wear.

Edit: just noticed KC seems to list all their Lt Wt C101's as FRN except the BD1 models. I think this may have resulted from some confusion that was going on when the dark blue S110V came out.

Haha Yep! I have Hershey bars sitting on the counter waiting for the obligatory pics. I just need the knife to show up before we eat all the chocolate.

I received my shipping confirmation and tracking info 2 days ago but tracking says it's waiting to receive the item from the shipper.

You know, I really thought I was done buying for awhile (at least for this month lol), but I think I may have to pick one up tomorrow if they're still in stock.
Thanks to all members, old and new.

Haha me too! I keep picturing Sal and the Spyderco staff sitting around a large conference table brain storming new ways to empty our piggy banks. They're doing a good job lightening mine these days!

Lol of course they are! It all makes sense now, Sal and company are super villains! Even the name "spyderco" sounds like a company ran by a bond villain lol.

Gotta say I wasn't prepared for how much easier to carry the LW version of the Manix is...

The M2 LW has become my favorite bigger (for me) knife. I love the fit, finish, materials, etc of the M2 G10, PM2, and the Gayle Bradley but a M2 LW sees more time in my pocket than any of those.

This arrived today. Decided to give the M2 a third try and 3rd times a charm! The lock on this one is way easier for me to disengage than my previous manii and I love the color and CTS XHP. If you are considering a M2 lw and not sure about BD1 or 110v give this guy a try instead. Image

I wish they would do another run of this knife.. if not the brown then maybe in a blue (that matches the Delica/Endura color) or a dark forest green FRCP.. come on Knife Center- you obviously had no issues selling the first run!

Another run would be nice as would a run of matching CTS-XHP Brown Native LWs! If they offered both in DLC then even better! Id buy one of each Havent tried XHP yet.
Wishing for in 2019: Native, Native LW, and CQI Military in 3V and CRUWEAR, Military Salt in Day glow yellow G10 with H1 SE and LC200N PE, Blacked out Native Salts and Dfly2 Salts, Chaparral LW Salt in H1 SE and LC200N PE, Jester Salts in H1 SE and PE with GITD FRN scales, Native Salt sprint with a Vanax blade and GITD scales.

Impatiently waiting for: LC200N Pacific Salts, CRUWEAR Shaman

The did a run of original natives in brown/xhp. Neither that one nor the Manix flew off the shelves but both sold out in a reasonable amount of time. I would buy a Native5LW in brown/xhp. Also, a rerun of brown/xhp Militarys but with the CQI would make me smile.

Very nice Darby! You always seem to post more and more great Spydercos that I never knew you had...any idea how many you have in your collection?
