These were delivered yesterday. They're both Spyderco Manix 2 XL's. They are indeed extra large... no doubt about it. At first I thought they were freakish, but now that I'm over the shock, I think the black blade will become my new EDC. It's really nice to handle.

What makes these knives special is they are an exclusive run using CPM M4 steel. They were highly anticipated, and sold out within half an hour when they were released. I was fortunate enough to get one of each blade style.

The Cold Steel arrived. It's pretty nice. Small but very sharp. The Hogonokami that was delivered from Amazon was a fake. It was not in the actual box and when I looked at it it was completely different than the one I ordered. I've returned it to Amazon and roasted the seller in the review column.

I'm digging this RHK XM-18 skinny skinner

This one just keeps ending up in the pocket

Assembled and tuned by Rick himself.

I picked this up off a knife maker friend of mine. AEB-L steel rockwell 61-62 he does a molten salt bath heat treat and a deep cryo quench. So far it's been a razor blade.

Pic stole from his instagram

Looks like a lot of interesting fixed blades are being posted. I don't really own any fixed blades. Maybe I should buy one or two.

So far I like it. But being a solid full tang, it’s a bit a55 heavy. If I find that it bugs me enough, I may drill out some weight. As it is, it balances on the front fastener.

Yeah, I thought about one of those also, its a little thicker than I want. I would have bought one if they had a .187 inch spine, smaller fuller, 3V, but weighed the same at 13oz. JMHO

They will probably make them again.

Yah, it’s the RMD. Love the larger rats, just never see them when offered new.

The JMD is just a stretched out RMD... not really that much bigger.

There are large blades right now though. I'd say the Mega Ratweiler is one.

Valid point... thicker than a Regulator. Just like a parkerized Regulators though, the grind helps. Still an anchor though.

The bolster release of the Whiskers2 is better and more intuitive. I just wish ProTech would redesign the Whiskers2 w/a bolster release as well.

Will keep looking for an all black scale version and will sell this one off when I find out
I have always wanted a Whiskers, I don't know the difference between v1 and v2 though. I've been looking at an ATAC but I prefer OTF autos.

Nice, which one? The Elementum's great, lightweight, nice deep pocket clip, smooth action and I have no complains about the d2 blade. Can't beat the price for and EDC knife. I believe they're available at Blade HQ.

I’ve been looking for the Elementum with a Damascus blade and carbon fiber scales.

I've been trying to get a CRKT Squid with the green handle or the natural g10 handle. It's become difficult to acquire. I've been on a waiting list for a long time. There's one on eBay with the g10 handle in green. The person selling it thinks it's worth $135.00. Let's just say it's been on there for quite a while.

Preferred the 2 because of the longer blade but never liked the scale end release; just couldn't get the hang of using it so I sold it. The 1 is smaller than I like but the bolster release on the 1 is much easier and intuitive to use.
Good lookin out, I prefer my blades between 3.25-3.6" so I think I'd go V2 also

Same, I want the G-10 Squid for the D2 blade.

This was a gift. Decent import Chef knife. It has a great edge and shaves like a razor.
