Do you have a blade restriction in France?
Yes, all locking blades ! :eek:

But look how it's stupid ! I should not have in the streets the small Manbug with me but I can have a bigger blade like the UKPK or bigger. :confused: :confused: :confused:

Are these seriously still available? Amazing. This has gotta be a record. PM hype officially dead?

Are they really?! Glad I was on the site the moment they went live and refreshing the cart until it finally worked...Surprising though, as for me, this is the best Para yet!

I'm surprised it's not sold out as well. Probably the M4 paras and the fact that it's similar to CS past para exclusive decreased the demand

Pluses (orange; PM2) weighed down by minuses (coated blade; steel that is neither hot nor "super"; pricing generally perceived as somewhat steep compared to other sprints, exclusives and production variants). That and people waiting for the very hot CPM-M4 exclusives, one of which is lower priced. Actually, all things considered, I bet Jeff is pleased with how these sold (and deserves to be). That is a pretty quick sell-through for 800 knives. :spyder:

I hope that Jeff is pleased. I appreciate his efforts to give us some unique knives. And I still hope to see Orange Native5 with XHP in the near future.

My top choices Natives5, Calys, C83 Persian

I am very pleased with my orange DLC pm2, it is awesome, and very good looking. I am not one to be sporting anything flashy or bright. But this thing in your pocket is nothing flashy, it's a lot of fun to have, use, and carry. The orange does get a little dirty with use, nothing some mild soap and water can't clean up. The DLC is really tough stuff and the black blade compliments the orange knife perfectly. It's a great color scheme. It's my first experience with the XHP, so far it is an amazing steel for me and what I use it for.

Also interested in what the flaw is. Also, this years batch of seconds seems really hard to spot a notch in the blade.

The only thing I can see is that the blade is ever so slightly off center. Amazing value for a the price I paid, $50 when XHP is one of my favourite steels.

You are right the notch is barely visible and looks like it just removed a touch of the DLC... makes for a good second sale find.

According to an earlier post (see below), there are ~10 pieces or less left. I think that qualifies as sold through, no?

Oh....didn't see that post. So there was only 10 left exactly two weeks ago and they didn't sell those yet? I suppose it's possible..

Regardless of how many are left or not, they have moved a considerable amount of inventory in a short period of time which bodes well for us the consumer in the future. Cutlery Shoppe takes a large financial risk committing to an exclusive and by having success like their past and present offerings it gives them the confidence to continue bringing these great exclusives to market, for us the consumer that can't pony up the funds for an exclusive run of knives from Spyderco. Keep up the great work Cutlery Shoppe and I look forward to your other upcoming exclusives.

Sounds to me like they were priced right. 30-60 day inventory depletion is about right.
