Re: Cruwear Micarta PM2 Full liners

I really like the traditional nested liners on the PM2, but I'm open to change and this looks like a model I could see myself holding onto (as a user, of course) for a while. The recent REC and DLT variants just didn't do it for me so I've been holding out for a model to alternate with my beloved K3...

Re: River's Edge PM2

Just thought I'd chime in here. I received my copy in the mail today. Compared to the BBS K390, which is the only other PM2 I currently own, there is virtually no discernible difference in blade geometry. It is a PM2 after all. I really like OD green handle color, and prefer it to the ranger green o...

Re: River's Edge PM2

In Transit! Looking back at my email confirmation I had my order in by 1331, just a minute or two after they opened the drop. I have never been anywhere near this lucky with a spyderco sprint/exclusive. I just happened to be on the phone and hung up when I got the in stock alert email. It was really...

Re: River's Edge PM2

I got a preshipment notification on the USPS site. Order status from REC is "shipped."

Yep, I hope BBS get's all the K390 exclusives. That way I'll be able to get them, guaranteed.
Also guaranteed it won't be someone else's return.
Can't say that for other dealer!
Amen brother!

Re: Shaman Cru-Wear Sprint Run release ?

The dry unbuffed micarta was a little slippery for my liking, so I put some drumstick wax on and it is now super grippy without being sticky or tacky. Put some on the buffed micarta scales of my 3V fixed blade as well. I really like the extra grip! https://i.imgur.com/RJtOAAw.jpg That CPK is beauti...

Re: Shaman Cru-Wear Sprint Run release ?

Well guys and gals, I think I'm officially tapping out. I have spent way too much time calling, refreshing, etc. trying to find this knife. Quite frankly the elusiveness has tarnished some of the appeal at this point. Gonna crack a nice porter and play some good ole Kentucky and relax :D. I'll gladl...

Re: Shaman Cru-Wear Sprint Run release ?

FYI, $320 is the MSRP, i.e. the retail price. 65% of that, or $208 in this case, is the MAP. That stands for "minimum advertised price", and is set by Spyderco for their authorized dealers. Paying the full suggested retail price is definitely a hard pill to swallow, but it's worth it to some people...

One in stock at Country Knives... for $320. I REALLY want this knife, but I refuse to pay above the retail price.

Re: Shaman Cru-Wear Sprint Run release ?

Sold out in seconds. I preregistered for an account, added it the second it showed add to cart. Still missed it. This is just absolutely ridiculous. Spyderco is really alienating a large part of their customer base with these ludicrous sales tactics.

Re: Shaman Cru-Wear Sprint Run release ?

That's weird. I spoke with Knifeworks on the phone and they said they didn't get any in, nor did they know when they would be getting them. They showed in stock too, got one in the cart and again stuck in an endless loop at checkout like last time.

Re: Shaman Cru-Wear Sprint Run release ?

As someone new to this game, what's the best way to find out about pre-orders, release dates, SFO retail sales, etc? IMO, best way to keep up to date is to watch the threads on this forum. If you learn that a dealer is taking pre-orders for an upcoming sprint I would get in line early. If it's a hi...

I was told by a Spyderco sales rep that they were ALL shipped out last week, for whatever that's worth.

Re: Shaman Cru-Wear Sprint Run release ?

On back order everywhere, I have a feeling these are all gone. The Spyderco rep I spoke with says they have all been shipped out and most likely oversold. They mentioned something about maybe making more, but that seems unlikely with the sprint run number limitation. And another cruwear slips throug...
