    Plenty of good steels? I'd love to see one. I think this is one of the best folders made.

    I doubt it unfortunately. They already did a run in CF so it's unlikely they'll do another. I'd love to see a para in M4 and red or blue C-TEK, that would be amazing

    I hope they make one soon paired with a super steel. Seeing that they did a couple of CF military sprints, no reason why they won't do the same for the para.

    They did do several CF millies. There's the S90V one, and the M390. There's also a CF S30V and I'm not sure but I think there's a CF BG-42.

    Yes, there was a BG42 Millie. I'd love to see a M390 CF para2. I cut cardboard with my blue M390 yesterday and it acted like a strop I guess. I love that steel. I keep waiting for it to get dull.

    Cf cts 20cp para 2 [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    You could buy a cts 20cp para 2 off the exchange,buy custom scales and still pay less then what would for a s90v one ;)

    I didn't realize there were tat many CF Millies. Was the M4/ti framelock in CF?

    Can you tell us who did those scales? That is probably the best PM I have seen.

    I'd pick up a gold carbon fiber para 2 with new super steel

    I can see it happening, there have been multiple military sprints with carbon fiber and no reason the Para2 won't see this same treatment. Could also be a dealer exclusive that comes out with CF scales in the future. Only time will tell though.

    Ah , Okay thanks.

    More power to 'em if they want to do another on in CF. I'd definitely get one.

    I am probably very much alone on this, but I am not sold on Carbon Fiber. It seems to drive the cost up and I am unsure if it adds any type of fuctional value over other handle materials. I would however go for a nice micarta para 2.

    I am with you Jtoler. I find it burdensome to pay a premium for CF. I just like to try out the steels and scale material doesn't make a whit of difference to me.

    I agree...the slightly stiffer and lighter properties of carbon fiber are really only theoretical when you're talking about such a small amount of material in this sort of application. It looks nice...but that's about it, at least functionally.

    Couldnt disagree more, its lighter then g10 and if you get peel ply it doesnt wear like the grip on g10 does
