    We all knew that the deposits were non-refundable and that the delivery date was somewhat less than a contractual commitment. Of course, nobody expected the delivery to slip a year. Whether you...

    Got a Southard which is, for me, a better EDC than the Para being waited (and waited.. and waited) on. So it's now OBE and doesn't matter to me when the 2 I have on order get here. Still, when a...

    Certainly true that there are lots of people very happy with CPM M4. Still, I've gotten the impression reading the good works of others that, in general, performance M390 (or CTS-204P) was about the...

    The Gayle Bradley is nice. It's certainly cheaper (60% of a Southard Flipper). Of course it is 34% heavier, has a liner lock vs a ti frame lock, and CPM M4 is nice but it's no CTS-204P. So,...

    Dumb hyperbole much?

    When you put down a deposit and it's 3-4 months late, an update is reasonable. If they take care of their customers they will be pleased to do so.

    Humor? Afraid not. It's a business. They are making a profit. They are not doing anybody a favor. They owe us an update.

    I think Knifeworks and/or Spyderco owe the people that put down $16,000 worth of non-refundable deposits on these knives some kind of credible delivery schedule and some sort of explanation.

    I really doubt anybody in this thread is an 'undercover agent entering into situations'.

    If you need a self defense tool, carry a firearm. If you can't, carry mace.

    We have low expectations so we should not be listened to? Really?

    Spyderco has chosen a path the demands high R&D combined with low margins. I don't know how they do it but if it means some schedule delays, that's fine with me.

    Attributing immature behavior to youth is not a bias. Youth isn't like race, gender, or other demographics. I think it's pretty broadly accepted that youth is tightly coupled to growing up. ...

    ZDP Delica, CTS XHP Millie, CF William Henry. However, these are all getting put away when the green Para in CTS 204P gets here.

    Apparently more than I know..

    I can't find anything custom in CTS 204P and only the Microtech whaleshark (for $375) in a production model.

    For M390 I see lots of posts on how expensive the...

    This is certainly a rational view, but how many custom makers are offering M390, CTS 204P, or even CTS XHP at the HT quality and prices we're seeing from Spyderco right now?

    - Given all the constraints, Spyderco prices are about what they should be. Probably a bit low all things considered. $140 for a CTS 204P Para w/G10? Who else has a deal like that?
