EDI knives are totally cool; I like the Genesis 1 better than the Genesis 2, but with that being said I must admit that the Genesis 2 really does have a handle material MUCH better in feel and stiffness then plain old Zetyl. It's like super-zetyl, it rules.
I like how the AFCK looks, but I do not like how it feels in my hands. The Genesis series seems to be much more comfortable, at least in my paws.

I have a plain edged AFCK with M2 steel, a very tough and handy knife with a great feel. It really does hold an edge, but the grind is far from even and I am growing to hate a black blade. It seems to be a step up from BM's overbaked ATS-34, but nothing that couldn't have been solved with better QC on the heat treat.
I've played with a Genesis but still prefer my AFCK, which is the ATS-34 version with a black coating, semi-serrated.
If feels more comfortable, I like the blade hole, etc.
BTW, I've suggested a couple times on the Benchmade forum to lower the Rc on their ATS-34 down to 58-60. I'm no expert, but I feel that would go a way toward solving the brittleness issue, because except for that, I rather like ATS-34. Also, other companies (i.e., Spyderco, REKAT, etc.) don't seem to really have the brittleness problem with ATS.
Maybe if we bug BM enough they'll correct this!
