You guys just have to be patient! Are you going to die without this knife?? Why spend $60+ more for a knife that was just released a couple days ago. There will be more! The panic set in on this knife makes me want to shake some sense into some of you 😡
I’m not sure if your comment was a reply to my post, but I was just sharing that I saw it in case someone else was interested. Just a friendly heads up.
Yes it was. I just don't like seeing people over spend on knives to those greedy sellers on eBay! I get it, you were looking out for anyone that was interested...but at that steep of inflation after just a couple days, I think everyone should remain patient unless there's word that will be the only batch released. Sorry to come off as a 🐓!
Lol, no worries, I get it and thank you.

Since they started dropping I have had KP, DLT, NK, KW web pages open on the rex 45 PM2. Every time Im walk past I refresh all pages....any time of day. I was very close to getting a couple but a login/password web problem saw me miss out by a minute or so with SFO
I just got a cruware, not a REX45, off KC. I had the web page window open and just happen to look at it and they were in stock.

The PM2 with Cruwear blade is an excellent choice, you will be pleased.

Thank you for your comment! I am excited. It will take the place of my PM2 with S30V EDC. Regards.

Actually yes I did just notice that. Has been available for pre-purchase. I almost bought one but I like the PM2 a little more than the PARA3. I thought they had a military too? Didn't see it either.

I just want to pay the dealer the lower price rather than the middle guy. It's fun to go fishing with web pages. Haha. Thanks for the heads up though! I might have second thoughts if I saw one at $175 on the BFs.lol.

$175 was fair, I was tempted yesterday to get that one. I missed the first run of these.

I agree it was fair. And I was tempted. And I couldn't make a decision so I passed. I wanted to try Cru-wear. And so I was looking for that in a PM2. Now maybe I'll get to try both, maybe not. :spyder:

Cruwear is really hard to beat! I think I want REX 45 mostly for the cool name, haha

I was going to say that! Hahaha. It's a cool weird name. I was wondering how they named it. T-REX45!

I keep thinking of it as T-Rex and Colt .45 malt liquor. Odd

I wonder if I'll like it more than LC200N. Sorry, I don't mean to go off topic, lol.

They're not very good pictures, but they illustrate the color in indirect sunlight and with "daylight" household light bulbs at night.

I'm disappointed with my light bulbs. :p
