Aw Man, ran out of bandwidth today and missed all the fun. If you have an extra or want to part with your's hit me up via PM.
Tuesday the 16th, from my home in rural Montana, I drove 93 miles to the bank to deposit $ for this special 11am sale the following day.
I skipped work waiting... my heart was racing as the time approached, logged in, one item in cart already with info prepped..ready!
Then...that all happened and I had to quit waiting for their server to reappear ‘whenever’ and I went to work.
Oh, I heard the dlt site just popped back on and the sale started randomly at 12:42 instead...
Dear Spyderco, please make more. I’d like to actually use one every day.
Dear DLT, I love the Arno Bernard I got from you but....Please call Spyderco and tell them I’m driving down to Colorado to pick up my PM2 M390 since I was in line on time but overlooked.
Add that while slicing vegetables for dinner tonight I dropped my BRKT mini-aurora on the kitchen tiles and broke the tip.
..and she keeps reminding me I said no more knives a year ago.
Still available. The people that waited forever and gave up only to miss out now will probably be pissed.
I wanted to take a moment to try to clarify what happened during today’s drop as well as how we responded. First of all, I would like to personally say thank you for the overwhelmingly positive emails and calls during our server outage. The level of support and patience during this extremely trying time for us was overwhelming.
DLT will continue to evolve and grow and become more efficient. What will not change is our commitment to do all we can to serve you – our valued customers. I sincerely appreciate your time and understanding in this matter.

Thank you Jason and Jordan. I understand your frustrations as someone who deals with near daily server outages at my place of work. It happens even though everyone says it shouldn't/won't/can't etc. I'm not sure if people are using bots now for these drops, but it is a good possibility and something to prepare for if you haven't already. Looking forward to future exclusives as I am sure you will have the site back in shape for the next one. Maybe a Red M390 SE Dodo? Or a DLC 20CV G10 Native?? Just throwing it out there while I have your attention.
I'll take this moment to apologize for my frustrations earlier today, and give kudos to y'all for handling the poo sammich you received with grace and as much speed as possible.
In the end, I acted like a spoiled, childish snowflake, and the poo sammich should be mine for the eating.
Guess it was the capital letters “and DO NOT”
Following Jordan’s post saying they shipped most today and the remaining in the morning .
So your post can keep taken in a negative way and or just stating the procedure on shipping .
Personally I Don’t think any type of numerical order should matter when there shipped that day or first thing the morning but hey that’s just me
