10 minutes after placing my order and still not sold out.
I'm guessing a lot of people gave up after the initial debacle. I believe the Manix 2/20CV sold out in like 6 minutes?? I'd expect the PM2 to be even quicker, especially if dropped at the original time.
Currently have 20 :spyder: 's in 14 different steels.

You know, I've been watching this go down, I gotta say, it's been a while since a :spyder: drop murdered a website so hard like this... I remember when I grabbed mine from the first run, it took like a week to sell out. Crazy. :eek:

But, congrats to everyone who bought one, it's a superb example of a Para 2, and fit and finish one of the best Golden :spyder: 's I own, and probably my second favorite PM2 behind my S110V.

Took over a hour and a half,but the site is now working and I got one.

First PM2 and 390, seemed like a decent price.

I had no plans of getting one of these but since they did not sell out in 4 minutes, what the heck. Picked one up.

I could be wrong but I'm not sure you're remembering correctly. I thought the first run went pretty fast too. Maybe not this fast. I remember being a happy I secured one before they sold out.
Of all the things I've lost I miss my mind the most!

It says I got two. Cool!

I’m very surprised about the comments on here. I didn’t know reselling for a profit was such a moral issue.

Thank goodness I don’t have any bible verses in my Sig.

Dang...was going to offer to sell you mine for $250! ;)

My message was for Sober...him and I got a little testy earlier this morning, was just throwing a friendly jab.
Yes.. I kind of figured as much I saw Kristi had to do some editing but I had missed it all. I think we all have dreams of flipping blades but it's just not worth it for many reasons. Not to say that I haven't bought some and then decided I didn't want it and sold it for the going rate.

Oh it was definately a while. They had a pre-order go live on the 7th of November, for shipping the 20th of November. Posts earlier in this thread indicate it sold out on the 13th, as the sighs of relief from broke spyder-holics start right around there. ;)

What a cluster... Not as bad as the 2nd Para 3 drop by REC but going down for over an hour must have cost DLT some $$$$

Wife said that was only a countdown to their server crashing
They have a pretty tech saavy operation over there with countdown timers, instagram, text alerts, a nice website, etc. You would think they would beef up their servers for this.

Looks like their server vendor told them the traffic would be no problem, so hard to blame DLT if they got bad info from their vendor. I can relate as I work for a Fortune 50 company with a huge IT budget and some of the brightest technology folks in the business and server crashes are a daily occurrence here.

This could also have been the work of Bots crashing the site. It was only a matter of time before sneakerheads turn their Bots onto the knife world.

Oh well, lesson learned. DLT and other vendors will take note and beef up servers and work to block bots and transactions from people with multiple accounts. DLT is still a top vendor in my book. Will be back for more. Hopefully a Red M390 G10 Native and Tan DLC 20CV G10 Native are in the near future.

Though this was a bit of a debacle, DLT is hands down one of the best to order from. Very quick! This is the 4th knife, and also my Sharpmaker I've ordered from them and I've received all my previous orders to NY within 2-3 days max.

:rolleyes: :mad:

So you can have 2 and then make like $40 on the other one in the future? While someone that really wants one that they would actually use, misses out on the drop by a few minutes and can't get one, or would have to pay a substantially inflated price on the secondary market...not cool man, not cool. Not something I'd be bragging about on here.
$40? 🤣

My bad, I forgot that I am the only person that buys 2...

You do realize that the purpose of offering an item in very limited quantities is to greatly increase their collectibility and or value, right?
I'm sure you're not the only person who will buy two, but given how fast these will sell out and the very real possibility that someone who wants one will not be able to snag one because others are buying two with the intention of selling one for a profit, I would also not suggest broadcasting that plan on a forum like this. Of course, the free market tends to neutralize any moral arguments about this subject (in other words, you are of course free to sell if others are willing to buy), but telling is forum about your intent to do so might breed a certain amount of resentment that this forum tries hard to avoid. Just my two cents, subject to inflation lol.
Thank you. I understand what you are saying. I certainly wasn't trying to 'brag' about anything. Just stating my plans, I really didn't put much thought into it because people talk about buying / selling all the time. -Chris.
Thank you for the response, and to be clear, I certainly did not intend to scold or lecture you on your plans, I hope I didn't come across as an @$$ :D At any rate I hope you are able to get two knives AND do whatever you want with them, because we DO live in a free market and thank God for that. I have a second run BBS M390 PM2, so I'm not really in the market for the DLT red anyway lol.
