    Note--bold and underline added by me. No reason to to fidget, folks; today is a federal holiday. No shipments can go out USPS until tomorrow anyway. A few minutes, even an hour or two, won't make a difference. Everyone should just take it easy--at least until after I've ordered mine.

    Ahh, I see I missed that then.

    $149.95 works out as £97.47. I still need to add shipping as well. Seeing as I can get a standard Manix 2 in the UK for about £85 (possibly less), then this needs to be worth it for me to purchase it. I know this is a limited run EDCF special, but I'll need to think long and hard over this.

    I agree with this. The special run that Knifeworks had done of them (800) has sat on the shelves for 6 months or so.

    The first Manix run was cleared very quickly. I was startled when the second run was the same knife. It cleared. If I had not been out of state the third run would have cleared in 30 days.

    I am not concerned with these moving. Spyderco has been very good to us and I have learned to trust their judgement on everything.

    I'm concerned with what happens after it's over.

    I need to find help here that I trust as much as I do Okie_Chick and I have to reinvest 100% of the margin. Both will be hard to do.

    Can't be of help from this side of the pond, at more than 7000 km far away.
    But "IF" will be a precise reason, i bet i'll be there.
    "Usi obbedir tacendo, e tacendo morir".
    This is not for the forums, is for the Man.
    (i'll never translate my own morale, even if under waterboarding, or stupid things like that).
    Please tell me (only as you want, of course) how and if i could be of help from here, Jon.
    I'd like it.
    Nick

    Not sure what help you are looking for, but I'd be down if you need anything. (IL, USA) Just in case.

    Hang on a sec, this says a Manix 2XL. did I misread this thread again? I thought the new EDCF knife was the smaller Manix 2 not the XL version.

    The cheapest I can find the XL for is £145.95. Even factoring a hefty shipping fee, I can't see the EDCF version being more expensive than a UK purchased model. That is if it is an XL version.

    The XL would make me more inclined to want to buy it as long as I can justify to myself why I'm buying such a big knife.

    And I like the look of the new hankies as well, might have to add a couple if I order the knife.

    Ok, everyone to the other thread now.

    I think I will hold off on the mass alert for a bit. I am going to work on the daily duties for the 13th then see if it is a good time to mass alert.
