    I've noticed a bunch of these DLT exclusive PM 2's being resold and was wondering why. They are a great knife and I'm really surprised that so many people have purchased them and are now getting rid of them.

    Thoughts?

    I think a fair number of people bought two and decided to sell one.

    I’m not selling mine. I have one as a user and the other one as a donor with Aramis scales. Loving both.

    So they were not a limited edition run?

    Dealer exclusives are available at whatever number the dealer requests, so in that sense, they're not limited, especially given as DLT has had several runs of these.

    Two runs of them. That configuration is complete now.

    I know the PM2 is the most popular dealer exclusive, but I'd sure like to see some Lil' Native variants. Hint. Hint. :)

    Rumor has it that the run was 1,050, not exactly what I would call limited or exclusive.

    Exclusive in this case means that you can only buy it at one dealer or distributor.

    M390 is a great steel and the quality of this PM2 is top notch. No need to rush to dump unless one bought it solely for the purpose of flipping for $$. Actually even if the purpose is to flip, this is not a good time to do that.;)

    Yep, but many more were sold than people think.

    If a knife is not regular production, it is a limited run. Whether that's 5 knives or 5 thousand, having a limit qualifies a knife to be limited edition.

    It is a great knife that was sold at a great price so many people bought trying to flip. My two current PM2's in carry rotation are the BHQ Natural DLC M4 and DLT Red M390. In fact, the DLT one is in my pocket today. I love this knife!

    Thanks to all for your info. When I see a rush to the store, like Black Friday, I was thinking there were only a small limited number of a particular knife. I was wrong, there were thousands. Thanks again.

    When Spyderco has a Sprint run how many knives are usually in the run?
