Knife Works Para2 up for preorder

Postby Alchemy1 » Thu Feb 16, 2012 4:06 pm

They have it up for $20 deposit on the $139 purchase price. I don't love the color, but I love the para2's so I think I'm going to place an order for one.

Nice! I like how this costs so much less than the blue version.

All right! Thanks for the tip, Alchemy! By the time this gets here, it will probably be my ninth Paramilitary. Just like Lays potato chips...you can't eat just one...

On Spyderco's site, it says that this is a Distributor Exclusive for Blue Ridge Knives. But right now, it only seems to be advertised or even mentioned on KW's site. This might change as other BRK retailers get in on the action...

FYI - here's the picture from KW site. Nice shade of green...

Hopefully since it seems to have just been listed, maybe we'll be on the first batch to ship out; besides the CC#'s of course.

I'd been waiting to see the color. I like that shade of green and the steel - order placed.

I love green! And especially if it is dark green like that. Pre-ordered!

I'm guessing it'll be Stag Arms green? Should be a nice one!

I think that it is probably more of a crayon green...

I know the earlier pictures showed a crayon green, but here are 2 data points:
1) The picture is definitely darker than crayon green
2) The title of that pre-order page used to be "Spyderco Para Military 2 Green G-10 Handles" and they changed it to "Spyderco Para Military 2 Dark Green G-10 Handles"

I can't pay the deposit. I get a message that an error occurred while paying and the seller declined the payment. Email sent.

Yeah I'm thinking more color of the crayon, not the color once you have drawn with the crayon.

In for 2. It's way cheaper to pre-order than to find out after they are all sold, & have to buy on ebay.

That's Lil' Temp green, the color I've been lobbying for the last 2 or 3 years.

Got mine on pre-order. I was looking about the characteristics of the CTS-204P online today not much out there other than the Carpenter site. Can anyone give details about this steel?
