    You just beat me to it! I can’t wait! I’m pretty excited about this one. It’s suppose to be really limited. 600 pcs is what they said. Available early next week.

    I was told on the phone that because of collector club and losses from QC, the final number is around 475.

    Well I wasn’t going to buy any knives for a while, but this is extremely tempting... Something about tool steel and carbon fiber..

    ETA: will drop Wednesday, September 26 at 10:00 EST per their Facebook page

    Price is kind of steep but when you look at what’s being offered and how limited it is, it (sorta) balances out.

    How does 4V take corrosion?
    Always wanted to try the saber-hollow Manix.

    I like the combination, but I think I'd prefer a full flat blade, and the price is a bit higher than I'd like(I'm stingy), haha. I do like the idea of a 4v Manix. Especially since it's a regular Manix with liners. This one is tempting, but I think the price will keep it out of my pocket. It sure is pretty, though!

    Fradon Lock Company, Inc? Seems so random. Excellent looking knife though.

    I thought the same but they have a decent selection of knives, some pretty high end too. They seem to be an authorized dealer.

    There does not seem to be much information on actual use of knives in cpm 4v. There was some limited discussion of 4v vs 3v on spyderco forums. Regardless, this Manix looks quite attractive. The price is where it can be.

    In my experience 4v does develop surface rust fairly easliy and also stains.

    I don't liked the look of spyderco's plastic looking scales but this one catches my eye. Very sexy looking and that grind makes it pop. Now I want one

    The other picture on the above quoted page looks to be a more genuine representation of the color and pattern of this knife.
