Looks like if I want one I’m waking up at 3AM. I usually have to wake up at 4 on Tuesdays for work so maybe...

I would vote for a Manix as well. This combo definitely deserves a run.
I'd be in on that as well. That would be a hard one to pass up.

I remember when KW had their military on sale for like $140 or less it was awesome
That was the best deal I ever managed to snag... They were only listed for about an hour at that price.

That Military is still in use, along with its smaller brother the PM2

M390/204P is still one of my favorites. Will skip the Para 3 though.

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

I love the color, but I prefer the lightweight version, plus I recently ordered the blue/orange Rex model from CS, so I should pass on this.

Excellent combination of steel and G10 color, but I will pass on that one. I prefer Millies and PM2s

I was wondering how the preorder would work for this one, I just received my shipping confirmation with a tracking number...before the drop. Guess KnifeWorks is good on their word!

My shipping notification came this morning too. With only 150 up for preorder, I had no doubt that all preorders would be filled.

Wow! I really thought KW would have ordered a huge run of these, but I guess not. On the plus side, they have been willing to order second and third runs for popular models. Wish other companies would do the same.

You could purchase as many as 5 on their pre-sale. I understand they sell out quickly and aren't left holding stock by doing this but it sure does set up a feeding frenzy on the secondary market.

I haven't been excited for a Para 3 in a quite awhile, but definitely can't wait to get my hands on this one. Will pair very nicely with the Military model! Such a great scale color as well.
