Had three days with this thing so far. Put it through little bit of everything. I forgot how much I like it.

Got the first one back in January. Used it for couple of months, beat it up a bit, then gave it away. Tough little knife. I am glad I replaced it! As an upgrade to boot!

I am very impressed with the edge and overall quality of this Para 3. As is the case with my PM2 and Military - I like this trio a lot. The consistency of quality from Spyderco is much appreciated. Nice work Golden!

Dammit...I'm sold! Great video
Glad you liked the vid. Mike is a great resource of knowledge, if you liked that vid check out his Martial Blade Concepts page. http://www.martialbladeconcepts.com/

:D Ok I should probably stop talking about MBC and Yojimbo's on the PM3 thread now :o I think mine should be here in a day or 2 (MXG Clip too). Very excited about this one.
Carrying 3 knives is perfectly normal :D

well, can't get more non-committal than this...
Hello John,

These are gradually trickling in from the manufacturer. They're filling preorders on a first-come, first served basis, but I don't have a scheduled delivery date for the item, unfortunately. It is beyond our control, but we will absolutely keep you notified as they become available.

Regards,

Katelin

This seems to be their standard form response, I've gotten this exact email several times from them.

Mine arrived today. I have to say the fit and finish on these is spectacular! Clip from MXG on the way but I'm already enjoying this one.

For anyone still looking who doesn't mind the hassle of international orders these just went up (a new forum member was nice enough to point this out in a different thread) 199.99 CAD = 158 US Dollars (i think)

Has Spyderco indicated how many units will be produced for this sprint? I've searched and found numbers from 600 to just under 2,000 and was curious as this will be my first knife purchase.
I almost grabbed a blurple PM2 instead, but the recent pics owners shared of their Para 3 cruwear changed my mind (again).

Snagged one from Blade HQ just now. They were only up for a few minutes and now they're gone :( . I called to confirm and was told that I did in fact get one of the few they put up.
