Dang. I feel bad for them. They were trying to do things the right way.

But am I the only one wondering why it says Millie at the top? Along with PM2 and para3. Could that be a little tease of what’s to come? A sort of make up for what happened?

I think that is the name of the Facebook group this was posted in..."Spyderco Millie, PM2, Para3 Club". I am not on Facebook though so I cannot see the actual post or comments.

Yeah, I would really like a Millie in this combo.

Well dang. I never got a shipping confirmation, so I guess I'm one of the unlucky few. Oh well, I've got a purple Cruwear pm2 to comfort me. ;) ;)

It sounds like we are the "unlucky many". More "have nots" than "haves" in this forum from what I can gather. For how long it was up after I purchased I am guessing they sold well over double what they actually had. I hope the next batch is a big one!

Thanks. I see that now. Wishful thinking on my part. Still though. A Millie in this configuration would be amazing!

Accidents happen. The only dealers I took issue with, as far as exclusives go, were TKJ (although it didn't affect me) and Knifejoy (which did affect me). I have respect for how REC handled the fallout and am not opposed to buying from them in the future.

Don't get me started on TKJ. Lol. Luckily I was interested in it more for the DLC Cruwear aspect than the model as I don't care for the smooth G10 on the Shaman. Otherwise I would have been pretty upset about missing that one. I feel there was some shadiness going on with that drop. Thankfully DLT came to the rescue with their DLC Cru-ple combo to satisfy my need for DLC Cruwear.

Technology issues happen so it is hard to be mad at dealers who try their best. They are Knife Dealers, not technology professionals. I know REC said that they fixed the bug that caused the overselling issue, but they definitely now need to figure out a way to stop the bots. All dealers need to put some effort into this.

Well this explains why they were available for much longer than expected. Easy come easy go. Stuff happens. Not going to get upset about it. It's a neat knife only because of the FDE coating. It's still just a PM2. If I'm able to get one when they have more available I'll be happy. If I'm not able to get one for some reason I'll still be happy. Life's too short to get bummed out over not getting another PM2
Smart man, plus you still have the original great OD Green/DLC (also a favorite of mine as well) That has to take the sting out of it a bit! Though, I would probably be a little upset had I received order confirmation just to have it be taken away. But like you said...it's still just another PM2

Yeah, luckily it was "just another PM2" to most of us on here. It stinks if that was your grail knife though. I wanted it to check out the PVD coating, but I don't really care much about another PM2. The Cru-ple one from DLT was the first one I have had in probably 2 years. I carry the Seki FRN stuff these days. Now had this been a Cru-ple Endura, I would be a little heated.. :D
Make no mistake, I'm a little disappointed. I ordered one because this one was different enough that it was desirable to me. When the Para 3 version first dropped I wasn't really interested. Then when the second drop happened I decided it was pretty cool so I tried to get one. Unfortunately I missed it. No biggie. So I decided I would try to get the PM2 but had no expectations that I would actually get one especially considering how they were doing the drop. As luck would have it (or so it seemed) I happened to see that the drop was live in time to purchase one. So I did. Now they've admitted that their system failed and they accidentally over sold this run. Like I said, stuff happens. There's nothing I can do about it and ranting and raving about isn't going change things. As Rick reminded me of, I still have the OD Green/DLC one that's actually one of my favorite PM2s. I have other PM2s and Para 3s that are considered more desirable but there's something about that OD Green/DLC one that stands out to me. I'd probably get rid of some of the others before I let that one go.

I do feel for the folks that were really excited and feel let down about this. All I can say is take a deep breath and be patient. Hopefully, they'll find a way to eventually get the knives into the hands of the people who received order confirmations and won't receive one as soon as expected.
Of all the things I've lost I miss my mind the most!

This one was my own fault, really. I hesitated after I saw the notification since I just bought the DLT pm2. Just wasn't sure if I wanted another pm2 or wanted to hold out for another model in this combo...guess fate gave me my answer!

Dang, thanks stinks! My internet went out briefly at basically the exact moment it dropped. When it came back on I saw the notice and was like crap! I assumed it was gone, but shocked that I got an order in. I guess I really shouldn't have got my order in because they technically were sold out at that point. So my dumb Gigabit internet that I pay $100/month for that drops 5 times a day is to blame! :D

Refresh my memory...what was the issue with any of St. Nick's drops?

EDIT: Never mind I found it :rolleyes:

Not a nice and easy check out!

Ordered and in my cart, literally punching in CC info and sent; informed that item was sold out. Pathetic. Lost a customer for good.

Thats weird you got both? Did you get a tracking #?

I got the oversold email as well so I am out. I wonder if it will be weeks, months, or years before these cancellations all get fulfilled now? :confused:

I still think they had to have sold WAY more than double what they actually had. On IG and FB it sounds like only orders in the first 5 minutes made the cut. They were up for another 15-20 min after that, and you know the rate of orders was much higher toward the end as people noticed the alerts and scrambled to order. :eek:

Maybe you will get your money refunded and get one in the mail.
