Ewww...Miami Hurricanes colors!! Not to mention that ultra bright, easily dirty CS orange! Odd seeing them with Rex45 though. Didn't expect to see that.

Thats kind of hilarious! :D

Seeing the olive drab side with the orange highlight in the lock area looks awesome!!!

Makes me wish it was olive drab scales with an orange g10 "liner" layer. Exactly like how the Siren is done, but Olive/Orange would be amazing! None the less, I already know I'm out on this one. :spyder:

Being an NY guy...if the Knicks and Mets weren't so garbage (I don't cheer for either team) but the BBS blue/Orange/Rex45 combo would be awesome for a fan of either team.

From their web description: "Cutlery Shoppe has the exclusive with Spyderco on these dual color variants. This is one of many that you will see." That's pretty cool.

I'm not big on this particular color combo, and I don't think I want another g10 para3, but if they do a pm2 with rex45 I'll definitely try to get one and swap scales. The bright orange just isn't my thing. I like the two-tone concept, though. Hopefully there are other combos coming, sans the orange, on other models.

Seems like any exclusive from Cutlery Shoppe will include orange in some fashion. I wouldn't be surprised to see other two tone exclusives, from other retailers, in the future though.

Also, I'm not sure if it's new but I noticed I don't have one of those square Spyder stickers in the promo shots. I like them! :cool:

I have several orange knives with olive green paracord on them, this is right up my alley! I wont buy because I don't need a new knife right now though. Shipping and taxes to Europe are no fun as well.
Loads of spydies, and a few others as well

I took me like solid 1 minute until I realized, that the knife had scales with two different colours :D :D :D
Para 3 is out of my interest.....I wonder how well this is going to sell, considering the scales are kinda polarizing.

Sonorum: I feel for you, I also live in Europe, I could swallow the shipping, but the taxes are making buying knives in US not worthy IMO.

The Rex 45 Shaman hasn't left my pocket since getting it, so it's hard to justify another Rex knife, but this Para 3 looks too good to pass up. I love the color combo and really like the hi-vis nature of CS orange.

This combo, on the Manix 2, would make me weak in the knees.

This knife adds an element of excitement because if you drop it in the woods, it’s 50/50 whether it lands hi-vis side up or freaking forest green side up.
😂

Ofc I say this knowing I’ll probably buy it. I get a kick out of the two-tone concept, I’ve been dying to try Rex45, and I’m a sucker for the Para 3.

I have a Rex Para 3 I probably wouldn't buy another one regardless but having two different color scales would be a big no for me
Of all the things I've lost I miss my mind the most!

If it was in a left-handed version, I would buy one despite its ugliness, and then do something else with the scales.

I’m not sure about this one. I’m not a huge fan of the para 3, but I’m also kind of intrigued with the color scheme.

This is a hard NO for me. It looks like you were trying to do a scale swap and couldn’t remove the lanyard tube from the second scale and said ” **** it one scale is good enough!”

Still in stock over 2 hours later. At least no one can complain when they sell out that they never had a chance.
