It's funny how all of a sudden multiple people are selling orange para 2's over on BF's. Its almost as though they're scared they won't be able to turn a profit soon..

Always wanted an orange one, but wasn't willing to pay the secondary market prices. Glad another orange one is coming out (although I'm ambivalent on the coating)!

I doubt they will make that mistake again. Now they know what have. Back then, the Para was still kinda new wasn't it?

IIRC, the introductory price for the first CS orange Para 2 was $117 shipped! :eek:

Being an SF Giants fan and all, this is a very tempting combination. But the jade/m4 is also going to be quite the knife. How can one choose?

No choosing here, must have one of each, start squirreling away dollars now so by the time they drop you won't have to choose, hoping the drops are spaced far enough apart.

I believe we were allowed to pre-order these. I think I remember waiting 2 or 3 months before they started shipping.

I placed my order 12/29/2011: PARA-MILITARY 2 - C81GPOR2 - CTS-XHP Blade - Orange G-10 Handle - Cutlery Shoppe Exclusive - LIMITED TIME SPECIAL PRE-ORDER PRICING

I got a shipping notice: 04/16/2012


I also believe the Pre-order sold out in 6 or 7 days.

If by 2 to 4 years old, then yes. :)

Yeah I was just guessing as I wasn't a knife guy at the time so I wasn't around. But didn't the para 2 take a little while to pick up steam and become the phenomenon it is today? Or was it hot out of the gate? I'm curious to know if people that bought the orange para at that time thought they could sell them later down the road for $300 +.

I think it was pretty darn popular right out of the gate, but what sells it is word of mouth and customer opinion. So yeah, it took a little while to build up steam. Also, now it might even have a little hype into it.

If anyone was wondering, I called Cutlery Shoppe today. They are not taking pre orders for this one, when Spyderco has let them know the knives are coming, they will add inventory to the website. No ETA...
