I believe a future Para 3 with 52100 blade has been mentioned, most likely will have CF scales.

I carry the s90v CF with a low carry clip. The one necessity for carrying this knife. IMHO. I do have a Endura 4 serrated ZDP-189 green racer that I use for actual work. No sense in bruising that pretty s90. :)

Excellent! s90v is on my metal checklist and I'm in the process of obtaining my 1st para3 (M4/Jade g-10). Hoping it has a better "feel" than the para2.

I think it all depends on your hand. I love the Paramilitary 2, but it's not as good a fit as the Para 3 for me.

THANKS for the heads up on those 2 extras! Has Spyderco ever made this many varieties of another knife in the ~19 month time frame that the Para 3 has been out? I know the Paramilitary has a bunch and a few others, but while I have quite a few Spydercos, I'm trying to focus on the Para 3 only. Maybe Mules and odds and end3. Everyone that spends time in the water must have a Salt H1 so yeah.

Does anyone have a guess on the price of the yet-to-drop p3 cf 52100? The para 2 was a little steep.
Do you think we’ll see a satin blade M4 with CF?
Either one of these would excite me more than the black blade /jade version just released.

I'm behind the curb on news of a Para 3 52100, but many people more knowledgeable than I think that's a real possibility. I HOPE so. Usually these posters are more right than wrong so I've already carved a spot for a Para 3 52100. Come on Spyderco! You know you need to do this and make it a new standard. s30v is so yesterday. Besides USA steel is the best and has a new lease on life. Crank out some beauties as we all want them. (sans wife)

Those are MODIFIED Spydercos, meaning, not from factory.

If you notice in the pic there's an acid washed camo hiding among the factory blades. I'd like a black blade with a red camo handle. Here's the link but they're out of stock.
