Merry Christmas! Paramilitary II in Maxamet dropping all over the place

Thank you Spyderco for continuing this delightful model! I have owned about 120 Spydies over the past 20 years, in many steels. This has them all beat for edge retention. Was just able to snag a backup PM2 Maxamet up today. This has been my EDC since it was new, and is now my favorite PM2, and my si...

Re:

I can't really weigh in on the steel choice, I'm just here reading, but... Surfingringo, this treetopping talk always amazes me. I know it's been poured over in other threads so sorry to ask again, but how are people able to get knives that sharp? Is this a big step beyond hair whittling? I guess i...

Re: Paramilitary 2 204P 2013 vs 2018

I also have both versions. The new blade is also noticeably longer, thinner at the tip, and has the different ricasso grind which makes sharpening easier. One difference that I notice is even more significant to me. The 2013 version is polished and smoothed all around the edges of G10 handle. It is ...

Re: What's the lowest edge retention steel you'd carry?

I haven't been able to carry a 154CM, VG10 or S30v for a long time, and certainly nothing lesser than that. My carries are currently limited to M4 on the low end, 204p, M390, 20cv, K390, Hap 40, Rex45, ZDP 189 or S110v. I keep them sharp, and at a pre-set bevel so quick touch-ups with high quality s...

Re: New 20CV Para 2!!!

One reason for buying more than one of an exclusive or sprint run, is to trade for the ones that you missed when they first came out. With that intention, I was able to get extras of the Para3 Rex45 burnt orange sprint run. And, just traded one for a PM2 20cv exclusive straight across. Fair to both ...

Re: Forest Green CTS 204p Para 2

I'm not 100% certain how the behind the scenes process works for distributor exclusives that only go to one dealer: whether the distributor just puts in the request to Spyderco at the behest of the dealer; the distributor decides all on their own to make the order and then offers the whole batch to...

Re: Burnt Orange Rex 45 para 3

Bento Box Shop should not be recommended to others because their prices are very high, they charge shipping ($14.95) and they do not accept returns. Personally, I've even avoided them with their nice exclusives. I agree. That was the reason that I posted their price. I did order one of their M390 P...

Re: Para 3 with CTS 204P River's Edge - New Shipment

My past experience with Rivers Edge was excellent. I was on a wait list for the Sprint Para 2 in Rex 45. They sent an e-mail with a link which I followed and finished the sale. Simple, no time, immediate delivery etc. It would have been nice for them to use that process with this one too. But, small...

It is nice that they offered to hold those orders to try to fill them later. That is certainly fair.

Re: Burnt Orange Rex 45 para 3

DLT oversold their stock and are offering refunds or shipment when more arrive. I placed my order after someone here clued us in. Got the shipping notice almost right away. Their system must not shut down new orders if some one clicks "add to cart" and is working on filling out the order when they ...

Re: Para 3 with CTS 204P River's Edge - New Shipment

I have bought from them in the past. They were excellent in notifying folks on their pre-release wait list. They tried something new, which they thought would work since their internet service provider assured them there would not be a problem with high traffic. Oh well, they are young, small and gr...

They are still up at DLT. Go to the "NEW" section.
They didn't come up under either Search for Para 3, or Rex 45, but they were under the New section.

Just scored another one. Thank you ejames!
