Postby TazKristi » Wed May 30, 2018 4:14 pm

We're very proud to announce the 2018 Forum Knife! This limited-edition version of the iconic Para Military™ 2 includes an oval Spyderco inlay in each side of the handle. Precisely fitted into the textured gray G-10 scales, the inlays feature a polished silver web encircling a bright red Spyderco “bug” logo. This knife’s full-flat-ground PlainEdge™ blade is crafted from high-performance CPM® S90V® stainless steel and laser engraved “Forum Knife 2018.” All its other features are consistent with the best-in-class Para Military 2, including its high-strength Compression Lock™ mechanism, four-position pocket clip, and the fully accessible Trademark Round Hole™ in the blade.

The 2018 Forum Knife will be released sometime in July 2018. Please visit https://www.spyderco.com/forumknife/ and complete the form to be added to our “bug" list. One week before the knife is released you will receive an e-mail with the exact date and time it will be available for purchase. The knives will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis with a limit of two knives per customer, while quantities last. Active members of the Spyderco Forum will qualify for a 40% discount on their purchase by applying a discount code that will be shared only through the forum. Discount applicable only on the 2018 Forum Knife. Standard shipping rates will apply.

Not super in love with the inlay, but I’ll reserve judgment until I see the physical piece. Oh and I’m in on any forum knife.

How fortunate that I logged into the forum to see this post today. I haven't been on the forum in quite awhile - I've been out of work for quite awhile, and it just gets that much more painful to get excited about new models that I can't afford, but I'm going to find a way to get this one.
Which Knife, A or B? get Both! (and C, D and E) :)

Glad to see you again. I took an extended hiatus myself and came back a few months ago.

I am interested in this one, but on top of the Mid-Year release my wallet is struggling

Nice touch! I'm curious about the inlay, though I'm not sure how to word the question. Is it a solid oval, or just the open web with the handle's G-10 in between?

Looks like the latter but I was wondering the same.
Wouldn't have expected anything like this. Pretty cool.

I think its actually a solid oval insert.

It would require some precise and delicate milling to fit that web. It would be also be a time consuming process and I would expect the price to reflect that.

That's what I would think, but this is Spyderco we're talking about! I just can't tell from the photo. And if it is solid, what's the in-between part?

I have the last two forum knives so I'm in for this one! Like the other two I may never use but I want it just to have.

Finally!

As a package it isn’t something that overly calls to me but as a forum addict I am excited to add another forum knife to my pile of knives. Thanks Spyderco! :D

I'm very happy to see that the forum knife idea has not died with the last N5. Thanks Spyderco!!

This new one looks nice! It's not for me since I already own both PM2 and S90V (I know, stupid rule. Maybe next time!), but I'm sure it will find enough lovers easily. :) Enjoy!!
