Blurple Strikes Again!
I've been using a PM 2, all black, for some time now, and the more I use it, the more I like it. I bought this beauty, not to replace it, but more to alternate from one to the other. Well, this knife has EVERYTHING that the standard model has, in spades, (blurple spades), and it just might become more than just an alternate. The dimensions are the same as the standard, but instead of S30V steel, they cranked this bad boy up to CPM-S110V. So far, I haven't had to dress up the edge, even though I've put it to all manner of cutting tasks. I'll probably polish it up a bit soon, just because I want to, so until then, I can't give an opinion on the effort required to sharpen it up. I have plenty of patience when it comes to sharpening a knife, so I'll warm up my best diamond steel, and make an afternoon out of it (he he). I've gotta admit, the color does draw the eye to it. I also have the Military, and Manix 2 models, in glorious blurple. The military is a tad too large for my EDC, but this PM 2 and the Manix 2 are very comfy, while keeping plenty of edge to handle whatever job pops up. This knife may be (at least for some people), the ultimate EDC blade. I think it has pretty much everything going for it, with the only drawback being the required effort to sharpen it. Anyway, if you're on the fence about it, just go ahead and buy it. you won't regret this one.
