    The only ones on my radar right now are an LC200N Native, or Delica Wharncliffe Salt.

    I'm tired of cleaning rust out of my knives.

    That KW PM2 M4 CF has been on my radar for a while. Seen it go down in price couple of times. Still haven't pulled the trigger.

    Otherwise, nothing from the existing models or what has been announced. Waiting to see if there is a new sprint/exclusive to entice me.

    Well, it's hard to prognosticate, since Spyderco switched to not announcing all their treats with the catalog release in December. I did buy a Kapara on January 2, so that's my first.

    Great story, CBRstar. Looks like a G10 a Manix2? That's a $150 knife, for $80; a real score.

    My first (and maybe only) Spyderco purchase of 2019 is also a Manix2; the transluscent blue one.

    I'm gonna focus on more affordable knives and slow the purchasing way down. I went overboard in 2018. Next knives (already on the way :oops:) are a Steel Will Modus in D2 and an Opinel 8 Inox. I've got a Western Outdoors Honey Badger on loan now that I'm really liking. REALLY good flippers (albeit with 8Cr steel) have gotten a lot less expensive in the last year.

    Some of you guys are rich :thumbsup:

    I have resisted four times (all successfully) on a few here in the Exchange: an Endura, two Delicas, and a Military. So by far, no Spydercos for 2019 yet (actually no knife purchase for 2019 yet). Still plan to buy a DLT red Manix and a Delica of some sort.

    Got a Rex45 military at the end of December and a kapara just today. And in a week or so I'll have a cf/52100 pm2 (had the choice between 20cv and 52100 but picked the better one).

    In February I should be getting the massdrop endura in super gold.

    Are you not taking reasonable care of them, or do you just have corrosive sweat?

    Can you get custom red scales for a G10 one? If so, you'd have one that is more unique than a production one, even a limited production one.

    Are you saying 52100 is better than 20cv? If so, it is just in your opinion or based on your preference, correct?

    Yes it's better. Spyderco did really well on the heat treatment. The tests done with it are above that of the ht done on there 20cv. And I've seen the same with my 52100 military as well. It may not be stainless like 20cv but it really excels as a knife steel with the heat treatment they did. Check out some of the testers that put them both through the paces, or no wait... Try it for yourself.

    I work for a company that grows clams, so there is salt water everywhere. The main problem is the liners. Every now and then I've got to take apart whatever I'm using to clean off the rust.

    PM3 and PM2, both in M390 or CTS-204P. If they're made available

    Ah, I see. Yep, you're one of the intended users of the Salt models, for sure. We've got our share of problems in the northern midwest, but salt water's not one of them. ('cept maybe road salt, some times?)

    My 2019 tally is as follows... Mantra 3, PM3 (Cruwear), Paramilitary 2 (20CV), SpydieChef, and a Caribbean.

    On the short list the Autonomy 2, Smock, and DLT Manix 2. I’m getting there.

    I need to stop... or maybe not.

    It definitely gets worse in the summer, too. Most of my work is outside at that point, so it's a combo of salt and sweat. I managed to stain a VG-10 blade carrying it around there.
