Jordan, I'd rather see you guys sell at a higher price, so that you take the profits, rather than letting flippers get them. I'm an actual user of the knives, and I'd rather pay $30 more and have them stay in stock long enough for me to actually buy them.

Just my 2 cents. :)
Its a tricky balance, we want to price affordably so that as many folks as possible can get one, and we do not want to price people out of being able to afford them, we have other methods to try and reduce the ways around our purchase limits. Ideally all of these would end up being used or collected, not simply resold.
DLT has got a winning combo again, Jordan, and the sentiment about your company is overwhelmingly positive on this forum. Congrats on being the first to offer a para3 lw exclusive!

Edit: Any chance we'll see some additional photos before the release? The background color in the first promo shot makes it difficult to get a good feel for the color.

You guys rock. We need a Para3 or/and a PM2 in Elmax soooo bad !

Yes - we will release more photos as it comes closer and our photographer has the chance to get creative.

Man this one really caught my eye but I have a gray g10 cruwear para3 that rarely sees pocket time. How does the lightweight compare to the g10 models? I find the cruwear para3 loosing out to a lw chaparral, small sebenza, or spydiechef a most days...

Not the best background color.
Yes. Yes. It is terrible, this background.

I can taste V8 when I look at this picture.

It's a toss up for me. I have Lynch short deep carry clips on all my G10 P3s. If they all had the stock clip I'd choose the LW P3 because it has the wire clip in a better location. The LW also has more radius on the outer edges of the scales so it feels a little better in hand. I'm not real picky and, while I typically like more contouring, the G10 version feels perfectly fine to me. Others have expressed that much prefer the feel of the LW over the G10 version
Of all the things I've lost I miss my mind the most!

I prefer the LW, partly because of it's lighter weight and partly because of it's clip location (deeper carry). It's a great "watch pocket" knife.

I have a feeling they are all sold, but the site is having issues. DLT is usually very good about sending confirmation emails within seconds of a purchase. 15 minutes later, no email and knives are still in stock.
