Well I've got nothing since calling them but I don't think I put my order in until January so some of you are a good bit ahead of me.

I had my KC Pre-order in on 11/12/15.. when I called on Friday I was #6 on "the List" ..when I called today I was told they cant see where you are on "the List".. No shipping or CC activity yet..I would hope that they are able to ship Pre-orders in the order they are placed..

lucky I had a back up on a different " Interested list" that shipped today ( they only got 2) and it will be in on thursday. I want 2 as the sprint / exclusive Military's is all I use for EDCso i hope KC can deliver Pre-orders in the order they were placed

I ordered mine about the same time and still no notification or bank card activity. I know some other dealers don't keep an ordered list*. Don't know about KC.

*Edit: clarification (?)-- don't keep their list of orders in the order they were ordered in :p

I certainly agree with the notion that KC should fill every pre order. I mean why take them if you know your not getting enough to fill them right?
I mean surely KC knew beforehand how many Sprint 52100 Millies they were alotted correct?

Not sure if this means anything, but they are no longer taking preorders for this Mili.

I've also pre-ordered a few other sprints from KC and had no problems.

Looks like I didn't put my preorder in until 1/7/16 so I guess I'm back in line a bit.

Bad news....just got off phone and they confirmed that no guarantee if you order you will get one since they have no clue how many they will be getting in the end. She said they got a few and filled those and do it based on date ordered. They are now just waiting for more to 'trickle' in.

I asked why they took orders not knowing if they could fill them and she basically said that's how they do it. BS!


Since I ordered in May doesn't sound like a chance in hell I will get one.

That's the exact opposite of what they told someone else in another thread. If I don't get this preorder I swear to God I will never even open their website in my browser again let alone buy from them. Still hoping it doesn't come to that.

I just found a site that has 10 in stock, but they are $350 a crack...I'll NEVER do business with them. It's not just the flippers on eBay, now its legitimate retailers gouging us :mad:

My KC Pre-order from 11/12/15 is updated to in stock and paid. The charge on my CC is pending. Looks like if you pre-orderd early you will get it. in the end KC is the only place that still takes early Pre-orders, I just wish they would set a limit that matches their expected share of the total sprint # to be produced.

I pre-ordered with KC 02/22 and sent them an email asking if they could tell me where I was on the list the other day, but was told there was no way to tell.

I have my fingers crossed but eyes also open at other sites just in case.

Normal operation for sprints at knife center.

They pre order as many as people want to. They get them (or process them) after many other dealers. They don't get many. People who pre order later have an open order after the sprint has come and gone, hoping for another shipment.

Since they don't charge for a pre order, it is good to pre order with them and if you see one in stock; order it and cancel with knife center.
