    Looks awesome! Now I hope there's a red G10 sprint. How's the weight?

    WOAH! that is beautiful!

    I think the PM2 will be to light for my taste, even though I can get used to it. if I could get a hold of one with aluminum scales I think it would be pretty perfect!

    do you have any information about the scales?

    Rd is the color Spyderco designates for training knives, not live blades.

    Something like red/black G10 would get around that

    Not bad at all really. I don't have a scale but it's maybe added .5 oz?

    There's a knife in that pic? O'yeah, now I see it. :0). I was to busy looking at the watch. That's on my bucket list, to one day own a Rolex. Nice knife to.

    BF can be pretty draconian about links so I don't want to post any and incur wrath, but the maker/seller can be found on both YT and the 'bay.

    Thanks - if you can't tell by my screen name, I have a bit of a Rolex fetish.

    A couple of other photos....

    That's a lot of nice gear.

    Is the aluminum scale a little slick? Did they do anything to the finish to enhance grip/purchase?

    YT took me a minute - not somewhere I typically look for procurement purposes.
    May check this guy out.

    Are they made by John Grimsmo?

    I've seen some of those scales around and have been thinking about getting a set. The only thing I was really concerned about was the slickness of the grip - it doesn't look like it's very textured. Let us know what you think!

    I also like the sunwayman. You should look at HDS systems lights, very nice, bulletproof. And programmable.

    It is ok as he has a knifemakers membership here. Are they signed "JG"?

    I'd buy a 200 rotary if there were any to buy....

  19. Regarding the slickness....If you've ever had any aluminum scales, then you know how slick these are relatively speaking. They obviously don't provide the purchase of G10, but by the same token, they aren't "slick" either.

    Your edit is confusing after you confirmed it was John Grimsmo.
