You know there’ll be sprints. But I understand not waiting.

Re: Para 3 lightweight

Well, the bloom is off my Para 3. I touched it up on a Sharpmaker. The 40* angle was perfect on the apex of the edge. I don’t feel I used it hard. I just open boxes. Cut a few zip ties. But it felt a little dull. The BD1N steel sharpened right up. With just the brown stones it would shave hair again...

Re: No para 3 lw love buying from spyderco

How do you get the veteran discount?

When I logged in to my account I’d already signed up.

And I got my Para 3 from GPKnives

Re: Sage 5 Lightweight

The Sage 5 Lightweight looks like a large Chaparral Lightweight with a compression lock. I really like the Chaparral Lightweight and I just got the Para3 Lightweight so I’ll probably pass on this one and wait for the Caly 3.5 Lightweight.

How many other companies are so responsive to their customers?

We ask and they deliver. It’s amazing!

Re: Bent tip on my Para 3 LW

I bought a Native 5 carbon fiber factory second with the very tippy tip broken off. A few minutes on my Wicked Edge and you’d never know.

That can be fixed. If nothing else you can send it back to Spyderco for sharpening.

Re: My experience with the Caly3

I have a brand new in box original G-10 Caly 3 in my safe. I also have a user and I love that knife. I prefer the 3 over the 3.5 so I may just wait to see if a Lightweight Caly 3 comes out.

Re: Don't get cut with a ffg blade

The worst cut I’ve had was from a VG-10 Endura. I was learning to sharpen and evidently figured it out. It was so sharp I didn’t even realize I’d cut myself until it bled.

The Wharnie made me finally really want a DFly, looks very cool. But I'll wait if they'll make an orange one some day...
Yep. I love the orange too! I have an orange dragonfly now.

In the latest Reveal, this is the knife I’m most interested in.

I wonder if I could swap the scales.....

Re: Para 3 lightweight

I wear xl or size 11 gloves. I would say I have average size hands. Since you have a Delica, the Para 3 handle is the same length. Whatever grip you can get on a Delica will be the same on s Para 3 without using the choil. Thanks for your reply! But to be honest: I can't believe thar the Para 3 off...

Re: K390 Caly?

I vote for a Caly 3 as opposed to a 3.5.

I prefer smaller knives.

And I love the Lightweight versions.

I have 2 Native 5s, the Chaparral and the Para3 in Lightweight.

Re: Para 3 lightweight

That´s interesting! May I ask: What is your hand- / glove size? I got rid of my Native, exactly because I did not like that I HAD to use the choil to get a four finger grip, while the handle itself in length COULD have offered enough space for that (a four finger grip) if it would have been shaped ...

Re: Para 3 lightweight

Mine came yesterday from GPKnives. ..... The Para 3 feels better in my hand than the Lightweight Native 5. I can get a 4 finger grip without using the choil. Something I can’t do in the Native 5. The edges on the Para 3 are more rounded and comfortable. They are the same thickness. ..... That´s int...
