I had a feeling this would be a slow seller, after all the other exclusives lately...especially models with M390 and red G10. This one just struck me as boring...considering there is already the same model and steel, just in blue instead of red. As many have said...too many PM2's and Para 3's getting all the love. It's a little old and not even exciting for these releases, unless it's something truly exotic!

Like others have said these last few weeks have crushed the exclusives.

Delica’s in m390 and Cruwear
Three PM2’s in M390
Manix 2 in Cruwear
Native 5 in Cruwear

And i’m probably still missing some.
No matter if you like big or small knives
Spyderco has crushed it.

I'm actually to the point now where I'm kind of done with PM2s and Para 3s. I'm happy with what I have. I have a PM2 on me today but it's been a while since I've carried one. I might go for Para 3 LW exclusive or sprint but it'll need to be something different. Bring on some more cool collaborations. Slysz Swayback?

Wow, I must have gotten one of the last ones..

I love M390 and the Para 3, so this one has tempted me all along.. but, I have been actively trying to buy fewer knives, so I purposely let the drop time pass me by..

I checked DLT at 12:31 eastern thinking for sure they'd be long gone.. but to my surprise they were not. After much less hesitation than I care to admit, I added one to my cart and logged in to buy. The transaction went through at 12:34 eastern. Shortly thereafter, they were showing "out of stock."

Ok, so nowww I can start buying fewer knives.. ;)

I was on the fence but I really like the red with the bare steel just like the HH UKPK. And don’t have m490, 204p, 20cv in my regular rotation. Congrats to those that got one.

OoooOOooo yes...that HH UKPK is amazing! I'm surprised you don't have any of those steels in your rotation, this was definitely a must for you then. Hope you enjoy it!

Well, looks like they still sold out in under an hour, so I think there are plenty of us that still want the para 3 exclusives...but I'm fairly new to the para 3, so didn't get burnt out by all the variations last year. I am really looking forward to sprints in the lw, though.

Their facebook page said they would no longer disclose run quantities to the public. However educated guess from seeing a few runs of different knives. It seems to come in three sizes
Small at 300-350 pcs
Medium at 600 pcs
Large at 1200 pcs or possibly more.

I'm actually carrying my Para 3 LW today. I agree, I may go after a sprint/exclusive or 2 in this model, but only if it's a steel or color I haven't had yet. I really like this LW model and the more favorable prices any releases SHOULD be at.

Well, I use the 20cv mule in my kitchen and have a southard, but this will get carried and used more often.

Yes, I got both a confirmation and a points email. Sire yours is coming if they awarded you the points. Maybe check junk mail?

They mentioned on their FB page the system was greatly delaying sending out the confirmation emails, and in some cases not sending them... But, they also said as long as you got a confirmation # after checkout you're good to go... I too received the "Points Earned" email, bu tnever received a confirmation email, but about 15 mins ago got my shipping notice.
