I hope this works out for them too. SMKW holds a special place in my heart because of the MASSIVE catalogs that used to arrive at my parents house when I was a little kid. My friends and I would spend hours looking through the pages. #BeforeTheInternet

Yes, everyone that ordered 1 or 20 of them, let's all collectively give SMKW a swift kick to the frontal area, you know, for THEIR mistake, for having the audacity to keep it listed at the incorrect price for so long. Aren't they "asking for it"? Ummm, no. But I have a better idea. Rather than give in to our primordial urge to not just "have it", but "have it" at a price that is certainly under their cost and which will ultimately cost SMKW money, why don't we be "the better person" and just cancel our preorder knowing that even if SMKW honors it, our windfall will be hurtful to their bottom line? We can order it at the reasonable correct price later.

Sorry to be "that guy" here, but if you guys want to keep chatting about this sprint pricing mistake, start a dedicated thread about it. This thread is for active deals.

(That said, I'm pretty stoked about this guy coming in at $78!)

KC doesn’t take pre-orders anymore and it says Caly Jr. is discontinued now. I hope my pre-order get shipped out.

Any good deals available for green g10 worker? What is reasonable price for this sprint run? How do you like it if you own one?

I own one and love carrying it. Not as low ride in the pocket as i prefer and the lockbar is strong, but that precise tip is a splinter getter.

Thanks and I’m seeing price ranges from $160-$180 (at BHQ, BB)which seem to be pretty high.

IIRC originally, which was few years ago, worker sprint was selling for $170+. But it never became hot, so prices dropped.

Bought a worker sprint a year ago for 120. Forget which dealer.

It's a very well made knife. Fit and finish are great.

120 sounds more reasonable.

With 26 Exclusives and at least 8 Sprint type runs in 2017 alone.
Things will probably not be moving like they used to.
Bought my worker sprint back in 2014. Large run of 1500 as I recall.
Nice knife, Pick one up as I bet they are probably close to being sold out.
And with the length of time it took to sell out, It might be a while until we see another one.
Just a guess.

Will agree with that. Look at all the Millie exclusives still in stock months or in the case of one of them, almost 2 years. Even the 52100 millie sprint is still around.

A quick search found several places with the 2014 vg10/green worker sprint still in stock. One dealer is showing 48 in stock .

DLT has the pink Para with a free Tenacious. If you have bonus $ from previous purchases this is a very good deal. These make nice gifts. Thanks DLT.
