If a mistake on the name is the biggest thing we can complain about than i think we've truly got a first world problem on our hands

The name if the knife is the Para 3.

The reference in the video was an honest mistake, as was the error in the labeling of the C223GPBNBK.

We apologize for any confusion these errors may have caused and sincerely hope you consider raising your threshold of "calamity"...

Stay safe,

Mike

I was just having a bit of fun. I took your advice and checked the definition of calamity.

I own three "oopsies" personally.. A "AUS8A" Delica (There is no AUS8 'A')
A Centofante with the "Foreign" Pat. stamp and the third one, a D'Allara in a box with Catchernan printed on the box, overpainted with a sharpie and the correct sticker.

Actually, those mislabeled boxes will probably be worth a lot to serious collectors in about 10 years. Kinda like double-minted coins.

Seriously Mike? This was probably the biggest calamity I've seen in years. Now people will continue to call the Para 3 a Paramilitary 3 which almost rises to the level of hate speech, certainly blasphemy. This has sent shock waves through the entire Para 3 community, many who now live in fear. I think a press conference is in order to stop the fear mongering and attacks on liberty that have resulted since this disastrous news was released. I have to be able to look my children in the eyes and say that I stood up for truth, justice and the American way.

Calamity? Nope Eric said it boxes were printed with it. Anyone saying otherwise besides Sal or Eric My ears are deaf to. Paramilitary 3 it is how can anyone hope to get more official than this?
:spyder: Make Mine Spyderco :spyder:

I have tried many different High End brands and only Spyderco consistently produces High Quality Knives with the most Innovative Steels and Incredible Designs and often for less money than others.

I have been surprised many times by Sal's design in the dark philosophy and agree with it. How it feels in the hand and how it cuts matters more than how it looks. Lipstick on a pig, does not make it something other than a pig.

I'm telling you the real crisis here is the next iteration of the PM2 and Para3 :D

Will it be PM3 and Para4? Maybe Para Military 2 2 and Para 3 2? As Mr. Janich suggested in my other thread, 'Son of Para 3'? As spydergirl88 suggested Para Military 2 'The Sequel'? Para3.1? PM2 MkII? :D

Not a big deal but the mix up shows why the name Para 3 was a confusing choice.

We had a poll and suggested all sorts of names. In the end they seem to have gone off in their own direction with it. The name never really made sense to me so I am no more confused now than I was then. Honestly, the name isn’t the only thing about this knife that doesn’t make sense to me. ;)
