Why purple? Did DLT choose the color?
Yes, the dealer picks the colors, materials, steels, models, etc on these "dealer exclusive" models. There are also "distributor exclusive" models where a distributor commissions the exclusive to their liking and then it is carried by usually more than one dealer in their network, though I recall a few "distributor exclusives" where a single dealer has bought the entire run.
"sprint runs" are the ones that are designed entirely by the Spyderco team and available at a very large number of dealers.
