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.

I think you duplicated #14 and #17 on your list; Jade Green M4 Black Blade.

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.
