Re: Official 2021 Discontinued List

Well, I guess it's time to try ZDP-189 finally... and that Bowie would be extremely tempting with the right price.

Re: DLT Cruwear purple Para3

I think Jason of DLT discussed it on his livestream that based on their statistical data, actually limiting it to 1 per customer would create more traffic; since with that limit, more and more people would see an opportunity to get one because they would think that their odds of getting one would in...

Re: DLT Cruwear purple Para3

We totally agree that the server failing is completely inexcusable. Its a terrible experience for everyone involved. We are working on a ton of ideas to avoid these issues in future, its clear that Big commerce cannot handle the load here, so we are 100% exploring every possible option. When the se...

Re: What "Other" is in your pocket???

Not in my pocket, but my buddy at work that's into these raffles and gets some CRAZY high end knives. He won this one the other day, it's a $1,400 custom that he had a raffle in for $450 and won.

Re: DLT Cruwear purple Para3

Can't believe you're all still ranting about this. I'm amazed by how quickly some of you turn on a well respected dealer. One week they're the hero and the next week people are moaning about how bad they are. What a shame! I know right?? This is agonizing... not to mention this happens EVERY TIME a...

Re: DLT Cruwear purple Para3

Why do you think the demand was artificial? Buyers are buyers. It doesn’t really matter who bought (or wanted to buy) the pm3’s today. The site once again could not handle the traffic. The business failed and that’s a big problem that DLT needs to finally fix. If they want to get these huge paydays...

Re: DLT Cruwear purple Para3

If you are upset about flippers/collectors/double buyers taking the knives from “real users” then Spyderco or DLT need to increase supply by making more knives, or reduce demand by increasing prices. Regardless of how you feel about who ended up getting a knife, the bottom line is that the process ...

Re: DLT Cruwear purple Para3

Nobody's defending DLT here (at least I'm not, pointed out that it was even party their fault) but I'm trying to paint an objective and unbiased picture here. Bottom line, some collectors decided that PM2/Para3 collecting is much more better than other Spyderco knives, created a group dedicated to ...

Re: DLT Cruwear purple Para3

Even worse, I had one in my cart with a DLT account and couldn’t load PayPal fast enough or enter my CC # fast enough... so it was not just me, but the fact that someone who has an account with you and spends money there can have a knife sold out from under them in less than 30 seconds because appa...

Re: DLT Cruwear purple Para3

I think it’s time that they get put in the corner by Spyderco until they figure out a way to clean up these release fiascos. For f-‘s sake...you have to be able to do better when you are generating that kind of revenue. That goes for Spyderco too. I’d like to hear the response from Golden. I guess ...

Re: DLT Cruwear purple Para3

I agree, DLT really should improve their hosing. There is no excuse not to have a host that can handle 100x the usual traffic. There is no incentive for DLT to improve the customer experience. We’re talking about something on the order of $100k in sales in less than 5 minutes. I really enjoy buying...

Re: DLT Cruwear purple Para3

I'm surprised there wasn't a ton of hype on this one here, only a couple pages worth. A year or two ago this thread would have been 15 pages long. Is the Para 3 love affair finally dying down? No, there's still hype - it's just that DLT kept this one under wraps until about 4-5 days ago, nobody kne...

Re: Spyderco Photo of the Week Contest!

This thread is pretty much dead these days.

Re: DLT Cruwear purple Para3

We don’t know how many there were but... 600 knives at $164.50 is $98,700 They really don’t care who don’t get one more than that number, I guess. Sigh. The whole drop thing is quickly becoming a souring experience for brand afis who want a knife at a particular steel, but get outmuscled everytime ...

The PM2/P3 drop game is waaaay out of control, it's not even funny anymore.
