Does anyone know what HRC Spyderco runs their cpm-cruwear? I am going to test it against rex 45, and I am trying to gather variable data.

Mine arrived yesterday, and the new clip came in today so it will finally see some pocket time. I really dislike the stock clip on these. I love the smooth g10 and I'm sure it will be a lot easier on my pants. I stepped away from this forum for a few years and missed out on a bunch of exclusives and sprints. Glad I grabbed this one. Now please stop being a bunch of enablers :)

KC is letting me down. Still no change on order status and no contact from KC customer service. Strange. :mad:

It’s still in my wishlist, says “Item backordered”. I assume they’re waiting for the next shipment to arrive.

I spoke with someone at KC today; I was getting anxious they sold out. They are waiting for some more to come in as of today. The lady was confident my order would be filed next week sometime.

I'm actually very surprised that these aren't sold out already!

After having the smooth scales in hand and pocket for a few days, I can safely say that this knife won't be getting custom scales (no matter how much I wish that I hadn't missed the gray Sprint). However the fact that the USPS decided to mis-deliver my MXG Gear short/deep clip to another state is a bit annoying, since the in-pocket experience is much better IMO with the knife deeper in the pocket than the stock clip allows.

They are back in stock today. I can add 63 to cart at this moment. Not sure if they will get more after this. Get em while you can i'd say.

Can’t believe this hasn’t sold out; others have gone in minutes. Have we reached a saturation? I figured they’d sell them all on the preorder.

I bought the pm2 but the problem with this one is it's a para 3. Too small for my liking so I'll pass.

Keep in mind there's already been a P3 Cruwear sprint and not everybody wants black smooth G10 scales. If I remember correctly the KC Cruwear PM2 exclusive was around for a little while too. I figured the Para 3 would be available for a few days too. If I didn't already have the grey Cruwear sprints I would've been all over this P3.
Of all the things I've lost I miss my mind the most!

I have some extra Para 3 scales so I might swap out the scales if it becomes an issue.

Some months ago there was a request for thinner grinds behind the edge. Someone was paying attention.

This one's definitely a slicer, just nasty how sticky this edge is (for factory). Great job!

I am really liking the smooth G10 scales on this Para3. They feel and look a lot higher quality than the standard textured G10. Even from a distance, you can see the difference and it appears more classy/refined.

They are definitely less grippy and that will show if you are using this knife in wet/bloody/slippery/etc. situations, but the Para3 ergos fit me perfectly and I still find I have quite a good handle on the knife.

Sold out again, now it shows pre-order again instead of 2-3 days when they ran out the last time. Could be all done now.

On the pm2 the same thing happened. It was like it was in 2 separate batches. If it has pre order, they will still get more. It immediately showed discontinued once sold out on the pm2.
