    Even at 3600 pieces it would probably be bought up within a week!

    PM2, Military or Manix 2 would be my choice for a K390 sprint

    These would be good.

    My preference would be Manix 2, then Para 2, then Military.

    And I'd love to see a fixed blade, like the "NASA" Bushcraft.

    Manix 2 FFG is my first preference, but a Military or PM2 will also be much appreciated !

    I worry that a PM2 sprint would be gone in minutes, and I might miss out. Of course, for Spyderco, I guess that's a good problem to have.

    I'd still prefer the Manix 2, though.

    I'd prefer the standard size. I find myself using my plain ole G-10 Hollow Ground more often than my s90v XL. It's weird to me, but the XL just feels slightly too large to manipulate in my hand. Opening and closing the standard size is so intuitive and easy, and my grip just doesn't fit the XL as perfectly.

    Regardless, if the Manix 2 XL had a sprint in k390, I'd be in for at least two if I could.

    I wonder if we should start emailing Knifeworks (who had the M2 and M2 XL s90v exclusives) and asking them to do a dealer exclusive in k390 too?

    In my mind, I think street price would be better if it was a sprint vs dealer exclusive.

    We're catching up on Para's, but any model would get in the same queue.

    Reading the replies, you might as well do a Golden Co. Version of "the mother of Super Blue sprints-Japan" with K390

    But to those keeping tally for Sal it looks like Military/PM2 (oops thats two sorry)has the lead... My first choice as well.

    I have been busy so haven't finished my K390 Mule to like it better then other special steels. However, I always buy the knives that come out with a great steel.

    And it's certain that, regardless of whether it were the Para2, the Manix2 or the Native5, they'd more than fly out the door.

    I vote for the PM2. Regardless of model chosen I hope this run can be made in larger quantities than what is common for sprint runs. 3000 pieces plus hopefully or just make it a catalogued item tell there is no longer demand.
    Current : Para2's Brown, Blue & Orange, Etched Spin, CF Caly3 ZDP189, Gayle Bradley, UKPK Orange G10, Manix2 M4, Sage 1, Caly 3.5 in Super Blue, Urban Orange G10

    Military gets my vote. Sal, consider me committed to one of anything (that folds) you release in K390 or K294, at least.

    I'd be interested in about anything in K390. I have yet to try the steel, but I've read great things about it. Military, PM2 and Manix 2 would all be great candidates!
