No fooling folks! 150 pre-orders love now, delivery estimate of April 21st. Pointed out in Ramzar's 2020 Spyderco upcoming & delivered thread, wanted to post the link here, as to find the listing you have to do some searching on their site to find it:

EDIT: Now listed under the KW Exclusives tab.

Pre-order in! I was really hoping it wasn’t an April fools day joke because I really regretted not picking up the paramilitary 2 in this configuration.

I've been looking for a reason to sell my BBS Para 3, I think this will suffice as it's replacement! Carrying the Millie version this week, love this shade of green.
Currently have 17 :spyder:'s in 11 different steels. Constantly adding and purging!

Despite being drastically different steels, I was thinking the same thing about my Rex 45 Para 3

Also, every time I see your 204p Military, I kick myself for selling my 204p PM2 and not buying a barely used 204p Military for $150 a few months back.

Looks great! If I had not already purchased a Manix 2 and LW Native in REX45 I would have grabbed one of these this morning. I love that green color, but not enough to spend the money after so much outlay this month. More for y'all!
Used to be JR in CT with a much earlier join date. :rolleyes: :spyder: Native in 440v was my gateway Spyderco! :spyder:

At least you'll EASILY recoup your money on the Para 3. I put mine on eBay a couple months ago for $140, it ended up selling for $203 I believe?

Yea, this Military is a sweet knife for sure! I was looking at it when they were available at KW last year or two years ago and decided I didn't need a knife that big. I believe it was around $170. Fast forward a couple months ago and it was suddenly available again, but for $200...Swallowed my pride and grabbed it anyways.

Now this is my favorite shade of green. I missed the pre-order, but I'm definitely going to be in on 4/21.

Well that was a disappointing start. Got the email last night, spent four hours circling back and hitting refresh on the site. Finally wrote it off as a bad April's fools joke and went to bed. Wake up to it being sold out. Their idea of available "now" is strange.

If I was a Para3 fan this is the one I would have jumped on. Looks nice.

Same here. Tried to order as soon as the email came and could not find it. Got up and they were gone.

Since KW allowed up to 5 per order, this sounds like a large run. Of course they have had at least 3 runs of the PM2.

I love this combo in the military. I'd love to see it in the Manix.

I would vote for a Manix as well. This combo definitely deserves a run.
