The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel
Those of you that are my friends...or have viewed the photos that I've posted...know that I'm a big fan of Spyderco's Para Military and Para Military 2 knives.
The version shown here is one that you won't see every day. I suppose we can consider this "half of a Sprint Run". Half?!!!! Yeah..."half". Here's the deal. The scintillating blue G10 handle scales come from a Sprint Run M390 edition. If you look closely at the blade, you'll see that it's a Black CPM S30V version. No...I didn't create this half-breed. My perfectly delightful M390 Satin Finish/ Blue G10 is still fully intact. So how did this very cool-looking S30V fella come to be?
I caught this speedy knife on eBay. The seller had purchased the Sprint Run M390...but didn't care for the Blue G10 handle scales. So he ordered a regular version Para 2...but with a black blade...and then did some swapping. He prefers the black-handled M390 now...and decided to sell the now Black and Blue "extra". His loss...my gain. I think that the Black and Blue combination is really quite striking.
