    The GB2 is great. Although I prefer the PM2 for a few reasons. It's great. Just a bit too slick and the thumb hole is too tiny.

    The GB2 is ruining me. I don't want to put anything else in my pocket most days. The only other contender is my K390 Para 2.

    It's knocked out a Cruwear Manix and a Rex45 Shaman.

    I am so close to pulling the trigger...I think I'm just going to go ahead and do it. Might as well check it out while they are in stock!

    Edit : And my order is in. Can't wait to check it out!

    I can't stand mine. Garbage ergos for my hand, but to each their own.

    Happy that just snag a GB1 from the exchange. The thin liner lock is the main reason keeping from GB2. I used to own a Blur, always feel not safe with the thin liner lock.

    Just arrived! Already in love! Great size, great blade, ergos are really nice, lock up is solid! Little bit of lock stick, no big deal it will work in. Very smooth action, very flickable, although the detent is the normal Taichung, on the softer side. The cf feels a little different than my Amalgam, a little smoother and more refined.

    I'm diggin it!

    What a phenomenal knife ! I’ve been enjoying this Spyderco so much. Every time I slide it into my pocket I feel this sense of satisfaction and made the right choice for the carry of the day. The action is wonderful with a almost hydraulic type action and smooth as butter. What a well designed knife by Spyderco and Gayle Bradley :thumbsup:

    Yup, loving mine! Did some tests shaving some wood off a 2x4, and shaving down some random sticks from the yard. Just having fun while the kiddo jumped on the trampoline. Afterwards I cleanly sliced a paper towel in half... The factory edge is very good, and no dulling at all after my tests. Love it!

    I did see a video review on YouTube where the reviewer said this is the last batch and the knife is discontinued, saying spyderco said so. I haven't seen any announcements on it? Maybe @Sal Glesser can chime in? Would really be a bummer, this knife is pretty amazing!

    We got off to a rocky start but she smoothed out. Can’t keep her out of my pocket now.

    Decided to remove the alarming video about the gb2 being discontinued. We will see I guess.



    I bought mine a week ago. Love it!

    I really don't dislike the CF scales that the GB2 features but I felt that the M4 was calling for some micarta. It looks like they're in my mailbox this morning.

    @Sal Glesser - sorry to bother. Can you confirm that the GB2 has been discontinued or will it continue in regular production?

    I keep reading that it is but I'm not sure where they're getting this information. It's a disservice to the knife community to create false demand.

    Taken from Spyderco forums. Should put this false rumor to bed! From TazKristi:

    "Hey, kobold:
    I just wanted to offer some clarity. I'm not sure what Slicey Dicey means by "But once they're gone... They're GONE!" but the Gayle Bradley 2 is not going anywhere. It's a standard inventory item.

    Welcome to our forum!

    Kristi"

    It's good to know it's not going anywhere. I removed the video from my post.

    I like slicey dicey, and enjoy his videos. He doesn't strike me as a person who would jump the gun like that. Wonder where he got his information? He's an editor (I think) for a knife magazine, I figured he would have followed up on that before telling people it is being discontinued.
