Specific model/blade shape/steel/coating/handle type/handle color.
Spyderco or any other dealer can do the same thing if they change just one of those parameters?
If the dealer doesn't re order in a specific time, it's no longer exclusive, yes?
I don't see a problem with a dealer, or distributor taking a chance on something new, that Spyderco wouldn't do themselves.
Seems like a win all around, except for the dealer if it goes bust.
Right, you put it better than I did by listing other possible parameters!
a.) Does any
wharnie blade shape in a PM 2 "belong" to cutlery shop now?
b.) Does only this exact kind of
wharnie blade shape "belong" to cs (so if for example the drop of the spine to the tip git changed a little bit THIS shape would NOT "belong" to them anymore)
For me it (sadly?) is pretty clear that no matter if it is a) or b), the "shape belongs" to cs in whatever steel the blade comes. So not like someone suggested just in S30V.
They say clearly on theit site (quote): "This brand new blade shape is exclusive to Cutlery Shoppe for the Para Military 2 & Para 3 platforms, and this is the "launch" knife and the first of many to come."
Now since the S30V run will be limited to 900 pieces, that subsequently means there must be other steels for that knife in the future, right?
