I don't think we will see a 52100 Para 3 anytime soon. Still waiting for the CPM REX 45 and CPM s35vn Para 3's to ship. Maybe in the Fall.
I don’t know, 52100 was announced before the REX45. They have worked with 52100 before and should have a good handle on it by now. I expect these sooner than done of the others.
It is an AMAZING idea; the 52100 PM2 is so incredibly awesome that it deserves a little brother, and a 52100 Para3 would be stellar in its own right.

I would be surprised if we didnt see a 52100/PPCF and a 52100 DLC/Gray G10 Knifeworks exclusive at some point. These seem like easy sells given the popular of the Para 3 model.

I def want to think the same, especially about that second one you speculated on (I hadn’t even imagined it but it sounds GREAT), but I can’t help but note that the PM2 is still readily available almost a year on, and the Millie is only just starting to become harder to find. The PM2 simply hasn’t sold as fast as most other sprint/exclusive runs. Unfortunate because it’s SOOO NICE. Now, I’m certainly no expert on the economics of Spydercos, but I’m just afraid that dealers/distributors might look at that and say “nah...” Or I dunno, maybe I’m wrong. Can anyone assuage my pessimism? Lol :confused:

Thanks for the heads up. I really want to try 52100 and the para3 is a good size for regular carry for me. Will try to pick this one up.

Ditto me on that, have the CF 52100 PM2 and love it. Sometimes smaller is better. :)

So are we thinking that this knife will be a Sprint run and hence available from a number of retailers, or is this a New Graham commissioned exclusive? I own a few exclusives, but no actual Sprint, and never got in on any knife at the time of its release, but this is one I absolutely MUST have, and it makes me nervous to think it could sell out before I have a chance to order one.

The last similar versions (CF/52100 on Military and PM2) were sprint runs available all over, I'm guessing the same with this model. 52100 is a very niche steel (with Spyderco fans) due to it lacking corrosion resistance and I don't foresee having a problem finding one in this case, either. The CF/S90V model was even available for quite some time.

The Military was a Sprint yes, but the PM2 was a distributor exclusive through H L Dalis, so only vendors in their network got that piece. At any rate, you’re probably right that the “niche” factor works in our favor, but then again I don’t think I’m the only one who was surprised at the speed with which the new REC Para3 sold out of its first batch. It’s possible this one may generate more interest than the other two models in 52100, but here’s hoping you’re right! I have a NEED, and it can only be salved with carbon steel :cool:

I've been waiting for this one, but just pulled the trigger on the m390 version.

Will need to wait a bit to buy this one :(

I really like the Para 2 and Mili versions.

I was thinking about getting this one but all these knives dropping all at once is killing me. I still need to eat this month so I'm going to have to pass on this one...for now. :)
Of all the things I've lost I miss my mind the most!
