I thought this was just the first run of 800 and that CS will get another batch of 400 later in the year?

Here the link. What do you think?
I have one of these from CS, and the knife and packaging look totally legit to me, just like mine.
The seller has 100% feedback rating and 14 day return policy where you pay return shipping.
Ebay favors the buyer, so if I were you I would buy with confidence if you're OK with $225 shipped...
The alternative is to haunt the BF exchange and see what comes up.

1 week late to buying one new from CS, and people are already considering paying $225 for this knife!?! That seems bonkers to me...
Going back to Caly.

But how else can you get one if you want it? I called CS and they are not getting more.

I agree but....

This was the highest priced PM2 sprint to date. There's a lot of flippers out there who bought multiples and need to recoup now. I for one hope CS fills the rest of the 1200 order but it doesn't sound like that's for certain.

I love watching the market so it'll be interesting to see where these knives settle on aftermarket price.

Simple supply and demand...
You could get the blurple S110V PM2 for $150 shipped right now.
Or lurk the BF exchange until a motivated seller puts up the CS orange for sale.
It will happen, sooner or later, and if you're diligent, you'll score...

looks legit to me. Also good feedback. Just wondering, if as confirmation of authenticity you can ask a copy of original receipt from CS.

I emailed Cutlery shoppe about additional knives, and he informed me this was all 1200 knives. There will be no more. Ever. This was it.

I would say one of the highest. BBS exclusive Blue/M390 and CF/S90V sprint was more expensive. CF/S90V/ CPM154 sprint was the most expensive.

I went and bought it. He did email a copy of his receipt from CS where he bought it. Seems about as legit as I can get. And already shipped per email this morning. Excited.

To be completely accurate, though, there is nothing (other than Jeff saying so) that would keep CS from ordering more. Unlike a sprint, dealers/distributors have that option. I would guess that Jeff has other fish to fry, but he is free to circle back for another installment in the future.

Dollars to donuts, he wouldn't. It would destroy the price model for these exclusives for him.

Ok, I typed that way too quickly without thinking. Roman and LC are correct of course. The Elmax and composite 154/90 PMs are/were more than this DLC one.

I'm still thinking about getting one of the BS PMs, so thanks for the reminder.

Yes true that Jeff could probably order more but I wonder if he would. They are going to be pushing the Orange Manix next I'd bet.

For 50 pesos each, I'll take the whole lot of the remaining batch! ;) :D

Is that the real last 50?

They haven't been too honest about quantities in the past. With the whole first batch of Blue Paras selling out at an odd quantity and coming up with another odd quantity second batch.
