Although the Para3 CPM-S45VN Black DLC Blade Black G-10 C223GPBK is not a new model it has quite a few upgrades. The blade steel is S45VN not S30V and the Blackout makes all hardware, clip and liners black DLC coated. They're trickling into dealers.

I'm sure that this has been discussed, but I seem to have missed it. Is s45 noticeably better than s30? Does anyone here have significant experience using both materials?

There’s a good detailed article which talks about it.


In summary they said:

“The main changes we expect from S45VN vs S35VN and S30V are an improvement in corrosion resistance due to the increase in Cr of about 1%. We expect a reduction in toughness when compared with S35VN because of the increase in total carbide content. The design including niobium and nitrogen additions should help maintain toughness similar to or better than S30V. Edge retention is covered later in this article. The increase in Cr in solution puts S45VN at a similar Cr-level to Elmax, but it is still somewhat below S110V and M390.”

I saw BladeHQ had cancelled & credited my pre-order for the PM2 Cruwear (C81MPCW2) today. Has this happen to anyone else?

I’ve had many orders, including pre-orders, with BladeHQ and this is the first time I personally hear about a cancelled pre-order. Perhaps they’re getting fewer PM2 CruWear/Micarta or don’t anticipate them soon in quantity. Pre-orders are a good way to lock in the price.

Did you ask them why they canceled your pre-order?

BladeHQ just got back to me. I had to update my payment info a couple months ago when they e-mailed (which I did). Unsure what happen since then. My own fault, no biggie.

I wonder if your CC had expired or BladeHQ went to get an Auth prior to possibly shipping them soon?

I'm unsure. My buddy had told me they did the same thing to him and his cc is currently valid.

Thanks so much. It's hard to imagine that even a single user of S45VN will actually be able to appreciate this difference over s30.

I read from the spryderco forum that there is already a price increase. Is it just some greedy dealers or all across the board (i.e., by the manufacturer)?
I'm really hoping the price increase isn't going to be across the board for all knives. For instance, I've notice a few websites increasing ZTs by $20. Let's hope the same doesn't happen with spydercos as well.

Ended up caving and getting the satin version. Haven’t bought a knife in a while. Probably gonna end up pairing it with some cf scales.

RamZar, thank you for your updates. I can’t keep my head straight w all of the dealer exclusives, etc…You and forum members make it easy. I have plenty of knives, including Spyderco’s, and am on the lookout/patient waiting for a couple of others. I am grateful for the time that y’all take to update all of us!
