Re: Spyderco Para 3 Varieties, News & Modifications

Looks like the DLT M390 Para 3 is dropping soon. eBay has some collectors club versions up for sale.

Re: Spyderco Para 3 Varieties, News & Modifications

Sadly, my enthusiasm for knives and spyderco have pretty much dried up. It's like they whored out the Para 3, cheapened it and then abandoned it. Good luck as there will always be another knife buyer but maybe it's time for me to stop wasting money when 1 or 2 knives will do and I certainly have th...

Re: What Spyderco is in your pocket today??

Para 3, S30V blade, with skinny blue-dyed digi camo scales, a LynchNW Jesse James Blue Cerakote Ti Pocket Clip, and a RUS Beads Killzone lanyard bead. It's my first skinny, and, quite frankly, won't be my last.

Re: PM2 Red G-10 M390 at DLT Trading?!?!

I didn't want to take any chances, so I drove up to the DLT Trading store in Marinette, WI (about 80 min drive). Got these without having to hit refresh on my browser even once.

Re: Spyderco Para 3 Varieties, News & Modifications

They are the same. Whoever updates the pages on Spyderco's website frequently forgets the P. That's a relief. I was afraid I was going to have to sell my other kidney to pay for another super-rare variant. Speaking of labels, I was able to get my hands on the ultra-top-secret limited release of the...

Re: Why all the Manix love?

I like the Manix, and made the conscious decision to NOT get into them. Still, I somehow ended up with five. They don't get much carry time because I prefer deep carry, and the Lynch clips I have around sit too high. What clips are the best for the Manix 2? The MXG look like they sit nicely. Recomme...

Re: Spyderco Para 3 Varieties, News & Modifications

Looks like the Spyderco C223GPDGY Para 3 Maxamet satin plain blade with dark gray G10 handles has gone on sale at KnifeCenter and KnifeWorks for $191.75. They are a different option for the Maxamet steel than the original C223GDGY . I'm confused. I bought a C223G P DGY from BladeHQ in late June. I ...

Re: Para 3 . . . 25 in 24 Days

Impressive collection! I think my wife would kill me. Seconded, on both counts. She’s fairly “understanding” when I buy different knives, but that many that are shaped the same..... :eek: Let's just say that I did my fair share of intercepting packages and smuggling them into the house. If my wife ...

So... which is the best?
For EDC, the Blue G-10 M390 or Smooth G-10 CruWear. For aesthetics, REC or St. Nick's.

Para 3 . . . 25 in 24 Days

A month ago, I didn't own any Para 3s. I had a friend who really liked his, but I just never got around to buying one for myself. I went to my first Blade Show this year, and was talking to one of the guys at the Spyderco booth about what would be a good entry point for collecting. He said Para 3 co...

Military. It's my main EDC. IMO one of the best designs ever of a modern folder. Sal is a humble genius.
Going to have to second this. I carry the satin digi-camo Millie frequently.

Re: Para 3 love??

My EDCs range in size from the Military to the Dragonfly, including three Para 3s that I rotate in. For me, I can't say I love one knife more than another. I like them all for different reasons. It just depends on what kind of mood I'm in. (Today, it's the Domino 204P Blue G-10 in my pocket.) I migh...

Re: Wow!!! A crazy 30 days of must have knives...

This was also a crazy month for me . . . spending more in June than what I had previously spent on knives for my entire life. The big chunk of change was buying all 25 Para 3 SKUs that have ever been produced. (I'm planning to slow down in July LOL).

The Centofante 3 was the first Spyderco knife I purchased, in 2017. It's pretty beat up now. Would be nice to get an update.

Hi Inversion,

Welcome to our forum.

sal
Thanks for that!

I bought my first Spyderco in 2017 (Centofante III), my second in 2018 (PM2). So far this year I've picked up another 42. :D

I'm especially looking forward to what's next with Para 3.
