There's no M390 option in the poll. Perhaps you voted for K390?

I see. Like my M390/204P/20CV choice although I did not vote since that option isn't there.

Time for a revised poll! :)

I'll take s110v and Maxamet as standard production.

Sprints? XHP, Cruwear, M390, 20cv...Anything will do.

I'm with this guy. I would love one in m390 with CF scales. My original one should be delivered here within the next day or so and I can hardly wait.
I'm in with these guys, the 204P with the CF scales would be great, easy on the pockets. Or one to match the Knifeworks exclusive Millie/Para. Roger, are you listening?

Has there been any real talk about a sprint? Or is this pure window shopping speculation?

Please, Sal, please don't waste any steel on this meme-knife. That's what the mini para is, a meme. It was meme'd into existence by forum hype. A 3 fingered military makes zero sense outside of pocket jewelry, especially when the Native exists. Send future sprints to us Manix guys.

Can you explain what you mean when you call the Para 3 a "meme knife" and how it was "meme'd into existence?"

Also, the Para 3 isn't exactly a 3 fingered military if that's what you're inferring. :rolleyes:

Meme magic is real! Praise Kek! :D ;)

Not 100% sure but I'm fairly certain the first sprint run of this knife has already been commissioned by BHQ, it will be M4 steel and Jade G-10. Really looking forward to this knife and I thank my fellow forum dwellers who have summoned it into existence through memetic shaman rituals, this knife is destine to be one of my favorite EDC's.

Nice try. By this logic, the Paramilitary is a meme knife too. Who needs a Military "lite" when you can just have a Military, right? While I agree that the Native 5 and PM3 have a great deal of overlap, I think forum demand has sparked some great designs. Hell, Spyderco's attention to the forums is at least half of why I am so brand loyal.

^^^^^^^This.^^^^^^^ I will buy one if one of these happens. Kind of my "dream EDC" at the moment. I'd prefer G10 to CF, as well.

I also wouldn't mind a LW version with S110V and (gasp) dark blue FRN. Para 3 LW: Bringing the Military to the masses. :D
Wishlist: Delica 4 FFG VG10, Manix 2 LW XHP, Military 204P and S110V, Para 3 Cruwear and S110V, Paramilitary 2 (all versions), SpydieChef LC200N, Caribbean PE and Sheepsfoot SE

Procured: Caly 3.5 VG10, Dragonfly 2 LW VG10, Manix 2 XL S30V, Native 5 LW S110V, Para 3 S30V, Paramilitary 2 S110V
