I like the looks of it. I am wondering if it would replace my Para Military 2 ? Since Alistair had kitchen tasks in mind when he designed the blade and the handle appears smaller and perhaps better contoured than the Para Military 2 it may be a better choice for my uses.

Sure is pricey, but oh so tempting! Such a different, sleek and compact design with great materials and my favorite lock and pocket clip. I'm sure I'll succumb to temptation once it drops.
Currently have 11 :spyder: 's in 9 different steels!

It truly is an amazing knife.
It has been my number one anticipation since I was able to fondle it at Blade Show.

I know, same! I emailed them earlier today and asked if they know when they’re getting them. No response yet.

Ugh...just bought a new truck and would like a few things for it. Now this is dropping and already set money aside for the CS Para3. I need to make more money!

Relax it's a regular production model. There should be plenty of time to pick this one up.
Of all the things I've lost I miss my mind the most!

I know, but new is so exciting! My wife thought my dilemma was funny the other day. New knives dropping left and right and just bought my truck. She's like, "Ricky, you already have a dozen knives and your truck has zero step bars for me and the child to climb into" Sounds like she probably made up my mind for me haha.

But, it costs 50% more than my Para Military 2. Is is 50% better?

It's pricey, but I feel it's worth it.

Mine is ordered and on the way!

....No, but it's new so take my money!!

JKjk, the design is really interesting to me, solid carbon fiber scales and a drop point... I think this will give the Kapara tip strength over the PM2.

Ordered mine from Cutlery Shoppe. Definitely excited about this one. Was debating on waiting on the Drunken but this one ticks almost all the same boxes for me and costs half as much!
