Spyderco has done nothing wrong, and we are lucky we have a company that gives us special runs with many types of steels. No other company does that for us. Its just a knife, and you have several other PM 2's that should suit you well. If you're going to let something like this get to you maybe it is time to re-think knife collecting. Hopefully you'll feel better soon and not give up on Spyderco. Have a good day.
