It seems like an odd plan for Spyderco. Presumably they had a good bit of R & D time into these pieces and to give them to a single dealer would limit their return significantly it seems. An exclusive where you just change colors or steels would be much easier it seems than to develop a variant that may have fairly wide appeal. The tanto PM2 sold out quick, I'm sure more will appear, but they are certainly limiting sales on this variant by making it a dealer exclusive.
Blade HQ have already said more are on the way. What is really upsetting is that flippers have bought up to 5 a piece and there are tons of them on Ebay for nearly $300. I hope people can refrain from giving money to these scam artists and just be patient for the next run. Blade HQ has not said anything about these being a limited model, so hopefully they will keep them in stock so anyone who wants one can get one.
It looks cool, but personally I don't need a tanto PM2. Now if they made a saber ground model (like the Wave model without the wave) I might jump on that.
