    Congrats anyway. I cannot imagine how could you miss this beautiful dark green knife last time?

Dealers/distributors can reorder (also subject to minimum amounts, probably 400), and several have. I don't think there's an upward limit on reorders, but at some point Spyderco probably has better things to do with production capacity and/or the market appeal of the knife wanes so there are probably practical limits.
    From the homepage/exclusives:

    "Production quantities are generally based on minimum material requirements, etc. and the customer reserves the right to re-order this item while it is under the exclusive contract. In most circumstances, Spyderco reserves the right to re-produce the item after contractual obligations have been fulfilled. "

    So it appears they saw no need to rope themselves into arbitrary amount limits and left room for common sense and practicality. Checking the spydiewiki, most PM runs have been for 800, but the CF S90V was 600 and of course the CPM 154/S90V was 300. Also a 3rd run is expected of the BBS blue M390!!

    Edit: Oops -- of course the 600 and 300 runs were sprintruns -- not dealer exclusives.

    That (the BBS exclusive) will stir up a firestorm of hate posts, given some people's feelings about BBS and the generally tight production capacity in Golden. On quantities, it's possible that Spyderco handles sprints like the CF S90V knives (Manix 2 was only 400, even less than the PM2 and Military) and the recent CPM154/S90V differently than the way they handle exclusives. I have a pretty clear recollection that Sal has posted on this, but a search doesn't turn it up immediately.

    I thought about the distinction between exclusives and sprints and was trying to edit my post on my tablet, with a faulty connection, while you were posting

    No biggie. I doubt that the rules for dealing with these things arrived on Sal's desks on a pair of stone tablets, anyway. One of the advantages of running a fairly small company that you own yourself is that you get to make the rules. I was mostly frustrated by not being able to google up the post I (think I) remember.

    Well I guess I won't be waiting long after all. Mine just shipped! And I was so sure I was in the second round. This is all very exciting, sprints are fun!

    Even though it's essentially the same steel, I do prefer blue.

    I called and checked with KW. I am definitely in the second batch pre-order list. I feel like a little kid having to wait for Christmas to roll around.
    Time for another !

    Right -- practicality, logic, flexibility, and creativity seem to take precedence over rigid practices and rules.

    Tracking says expected today but it's not marked as "out for delivery" which means it'll likely come tomorrow instead. Somebody hold me....

    Smart. Two dark green paras are twice better than one. And dark green para is the best para ever (CF is not bad either, but dark green still better)
