Just made a quick impulse buy from BladeHQ :) I knew I'd get (at least) one eventually, so I figured the sooner the better.

I guess I was only an hour or two away from owning one yesterday. I'm passing through SLC so I thought I'd check out the BHQ store where I got to handle one of the few they had for samples. Loved it. Way better than I expected. Wanted one instantly. But the shipment must have been just pulling in cuz they weren't live yet and the guy didn't know when they would be. It would have been the easiest impulse buy of my life, but now it'll have to suffer deliberation and restraint like everything else I want but don't have the money for. Glad it's not a sprint!

I was poised over the keyboard to order, and came to my senses. Comp locks always pinch me, and the knife has too much handle sticking out of the pocket (and I hate those deep carry clips - I like knife sticking out) - this one's just too much, I think. We'll see, but I don't need another knife collecting dust, like my Para 2.
- best wishes, Jazz.

Great pics Dan! It sounds like the P3 will be everything I was hoping for. Looking forward to getting mine!

Still waiting on notification for my pre-order order that I've been on since 11/17.
The only reason I went with the company is they a YouTube video for the pre-order and they were the only ones that properly listed it as the Para 3.
Was on the GP page the other day and didn't pull the trigger out of principal.
Next one I see available I'm grabbing if I haven't received a notice soon. I sleep in the day, so at night I can read about all these people that received their P 3.
An email saying screw off would be better than t nothing right now.
Never underestimate the predictability of stupidity.

Well it being a holiday and all, I think you may be waiting at least two more days Leadsled. Hang in there, Tuesday may be your day!

Great pics, Dan! Looks really promising.

How does the balance feel compared to Sage 5?

How about the action? (I know your Para3 is fresh and new, so maybe hard to tell right away...)


Also, anyone know, does the Sage 5 have a stepped pivot?
(Assuming this new Para3 does, like the PM2 and CQI Millie)

Haha, I hear ya. I mean, it came out last year and we haven't seen a Sprint yet, c'mon!?! :p :D
I'm not usually a super fiend for all the Sprints, but I think I'll be waiting on this Para 3 to debut in a high speed tool steel or something before I pick one up.
Going back to Caly.
