    So I've decided that I absolutely "need" another Spyderco after completly smittend by Dragonfly2.
    I know the high value of Delica but just can't seem to love the overall looks ov it and for me the aesthetics is kinda important. I can get either a Para2 digicam scales or Manix 2 with CPM 110V steel for about $130 incl. shipping. So I need you enablers to help me out.

    P.S.
    My grail(ish) knife is Yojimbo 2 so maybe throw in another $30 or so and just get this one?

    I love all the knives in your pole. I have a regular Manix 2, Pm2, and Yojimbo, and I love them all, in fact they are what I call The Golden Brothers (get it? made in Golden, Co). What I really want however is the S110V Manix so my vote goes for that.

    Edit: Offtopic, but really like your Predator, I'll take a pic of mine when I get the chance. It's not what you expect ;)

    I would get the yohimbo, the other two are great knives, but not unique in in that you can get other hard use drop points. How many hard use wharncliffe a are out there?

    Yojimbo is sweet but it puts me in $170 territory shipping inclided. I'm thinking for 130 I'd bette snag the 110V manix. It's the last one.

    Argh. I'm afraid it's going to be to expensive for me hence I don't know yet what it will be.

    Wait a week or two to save up a couple extra bucks to get the Yojumbo 2. Buy what you want the first time and you won't have to buy another

    Unfortunately even if I get what I want I'm afraid I still will have to buy another. This will only feed the addiction.

    Yeah, but then you can move onto the next "grail" knife. No sense in not buying a "grail" over another lesser desired knife when it's only $30 difference, especially when you are talking over a $100 in the first place. In my opinion of course

    The Para2 also been my kinda grail knife(I know but I have standarts according to my budget). Could've snaged it a few years back when the price were low. After that the price became really high for me and now again I can afford it. Also even with the superior steel the Manix doesn't really doing it for me. Not digging the handle material, shape and thickness. All the review are raving but in the end of the day I need to carry and use it.
    Arrrrgh....Decisions, decisions....:help:

    Manix 2 and Para 2 are both amazing knives. I think I would take the Para 2 out of those three...

    I prefer the black handle to the camo but thats a personal preference. I also had a manix but and really liked it, i had the hollow ground version not the full flat ground otherwise i may have kept it.

    I voted for the PM2. I don't own any Spyderco knives but I have looked real hard at the PM2. I like the digicam version as well.

    OK, Just pulled the triger on Paramilitary 2 digicam. Just couldn't bring myself to fall in love with the Manix. If just the handle were different...
    Anyway, thanks for the help making the decision guys.
