I'm going to guess this one is around for a while unless it was a smaller run.

I'm thinking this will stick around for a while as well.

I do love the jade but it seems like my non-coated M4 blades get rust spots when you look at them wrong... so... tempted...

Yeah hope they didn't get too many of these lol

I guess they will not stop until they've done all models in this combo although I think it's getting a bit tired IMHO

Copping this one to mod. Love M4, and the Yo2 is my favorite Spydie to mess with!

Doesn't look like its on the list of new releases for this year, but does anyone know if BHQ plans on releasing this with DLC blade finish, like they have done in the past?

I dunno if I'd say it's tired, not really any worse than the blurple epidemic was. I just wish they'd get around to doing a Sliverax or Shaman.



I've typed out "Sliverax or Shaman" so many times that my phone auto predicts those words in that order :rolleyes:

I keep seeing people say that m4 that’s easily but that has been the exact opposite of my experience with it.

+1 on the Sliverax or Shaman...I get it, it's economics and the internet loves the PM2, but these two models really need some sprints!

As for the "blurple epidemic", I'm still bummed that it didn't infect the Yo2. That's the config I've actually been waiting for.

This might be a real slow burner for bladehq. I’m not seeing a lot of action here or on the Facebook groups.

Seems a lot of people are hoping/waiting for a DLC version.

Actually...they either didn't make many, or it's doing pretty well:

Would still love to know how a Shaman would do. :)

BladeHQ might just be limiting the number you can add to your cart. It's still available.

I'm thinking there will be a dlc version of this. The responses by bladehq in the instagram comments make it seem so. They're saying "we'll never tell" in response to people asking about a coated version. Kind of wish they'd have just been open about whether there would be a dlc version or not. :rolleyes:

I can live with the jade but not a huge fan. I am a big fan of the Yo2. I ordered one for the M4, which will get brown scales, and the dlc S90V will get the jade.
We waited a long time for M4 in other models and it remains one of my favorite steels (after Cruwear). I think the Yo2 will really like M4.

But I am with everybody else waiting (impatiently) for a Shaman sprint ;)

Hi,

I have ordered one also 5 minutes after the golive. Planning to swap the Jade for CF and CPM S90V into the Jade.
Patina on CPMM4 should look great on CF. :-)
More to come on my little blog later next week. :-)
