Those look really nice. Nothing I'm interested in ... but I will confess, those look really nice!!!

Those look really nice. I was interested, tried to buy, got shut out, convinced myself No Big Deal, now I see these pictures and feel sad.

This might be the first exclusive series where I actually try to collect each one, I like them so much.
Careful! That's a slippery slope! :)

I few years ago I said I'd never try collect all versions of a dealer exclusive. I really like red/black look of the SNK exclusives. Not to mention most of them have had 4V steel which I really like. Now I find myself all the models and have plans on buying others as they're released even if they're something I wouldn't normally buy (Chief, Military, etc). I figure it'll give me the opportunity to try something out of my comfort zone. Who knows I may end up liking it much more than I thought

Jordan, if you're still lurking, let's see a Dragonfly sprint in a nice stainless super steel like 20cv or m390!

Indeed. I committed myself to being Rex 45 complete in 2018...then Reveal 4 happened.

Yeah, if it goes the way of the BladeHQ jade/m4 series I'd end up with quite a few knives! But like you said, it's also an excuse to try something new. ;)

I know some will cringe when they read this but, even though I've carried and used most (if not all) of them, I have a whole bunch of different knives to rotate through. So they'll likely stay in nice shape for a long time. I don't think I'll be hurt too bad financially if I ever decide I don't need them anymore.

I sold my crucarta shaman to someone who missed out (at cost) and I don't own a PM3 so I tried for this one to have the steel in a new (to me) format. Didn't score but I'm accustomed to the process now, it's not the end of the world.

Don't know why this thread is so long, it's hardly the first time demand has exceeded supply for an exclusive. Just beating a dead horse?

Can't wait for mine! Will take a while though. Makes me wonder what model is DLT going to drop next? Possibly a Manix or a Para 3 lw? (based on their releases of their red m390)
For whatever reason their 20CV Manix seemed to be a slow seller, especially the 2nd time around. I wonder if they will try a different model because of that?


Maybe because it isn't a PM2 / Para 3? :)

At this point I think that could only be the logical answer. Any knife dealer that drops a PM2 / Para 3 exclusive will have their entire supply consumed within 5 mins. bar none. That's how outrageous the demand for these knives have become by collectors and flippers alike.

But I'm not even complaining that the 20CV Manix was a slow seller. It's the only way I got mine. So I hope that for everyone's sanity (and also so that everyone will have a good opportunity to snag a copy) they'd do the Manix next. :D of course if it's a Para3 LW, much better! :)
