Got the S110V completed my collection. Top is Millie in S110v and middle is Para 2 S110v.

I got the Military C36GPE, and they're not kidding about how big this is. Kind of a weird first Spyderco to add to my collection, but I'll take it. :)
got a plane Jane black DLC militar.
Plain Jane, but always fun to try. Great knife regardless, thumbs up
I also received the Para 3 S110V in Blurple. Couldn't be happier. A Millie would have been nice too, but I most likely would have sold it to buy another Para 2 or 3.
WOW, I actually got lucky for once. Hoped for s110v blurple para3 and whammo that's what I received.
Wishing the best to all the rest
Hi Just received mine, no upgrade just the standard black G-10 Bob

And what the tracking show about the weight ?
Tontonlino
Not sure, I didn't see anything about the weight, I don't believe the weight is going to very from the standard to the up grades (in in fact there are as many as they say) the upgrade is just the knife with different scales. Not an extra knife.
My tracking shows a parcel of 9x7x3 at 0.6lbs arriving Tuesday the 18th. Seems large for a knife.

My packet is 0,33 lbs. Perhaps, it's a additionnal prize, but I think, you have an upgrade.

Turned out to be the Para 3 S110V!
Hello anybody got his yet? Did you get the upgrade?
I don't understand why we don't know what prize is unlock. If it's possible To have news about this drop.
Ok, when I made this purchase yesterday the counter said there were 299 sold (which would have made me at least 300, unlocking all the various extras, part of the reason I signed up). Today I got an email that says, "Congrats on picking up the Massdrop Blue Box: Spyderco Para 3! You and 118 other members made this drop a success. Here's your receipt:" Which is it, over 300 purchased like it said when I made my purchase, or only 118 purchased which would not unlock the best of the extras? Or am I missing something? Thanks.

I think it's 118 or 119 (you+118) for this drop. The 300+ is the total sold including previous drops.
If is shows 224 sold, then why aren't the first 2 extras unlocked yet?
Hello, excuse my english, I have a question. For the additionnal prize, what is the number for unlock ?

If I'm shopping for a para 3 I'm not going to be interested in the larger "upgraded" military ones. This drop doesn't make a lot of sense to me.

Like all spyderco drops on massdrop I know I can buy this knife for a few dollars more somewhere else. Thanks for the info and I'm glad this drop works for you. But for ME it doesn't make sense
[removed]
weird drop.. Manix is cool but no interest in a military.... 10 bucks less and have a para 3 to your door in 2 days on amazon.

MD has made mistakes like on the description of the drops (spyderco blade steel ) but I've never received or heard of anyone receiving counterfeit merchandise. 👍👍
Maybe. I know they work with Spyderco directly. I've been waiting on a delica drop that has been delayed and spyderco wrote a letter to massdrop and the community which was posted in the discussion.
The Military and Manix are nice, but the digicam Para 3 don't seem like an upgrade to me. Especially if you need a smaller knife, only to get one of the others. Is this a Para3 Blue Box, or a Manix one?
Also, I got bupkis in the last Blue Box I went for (no extras, no upgrades, but a lot of waiting).
Hard pass for me. If there was a sprint run in here, they might tempt me.

It's a Para 3 Blue Box. It's right in the title. You have a chance at the upgrades. If you need a Para 3, then go buy one from https://www.bladehq.com/item--Spyderco-Paramilitary-3--50648, with zero shipping and have it in a couple days. This drop is for people who would like a para 3, but also want the chance at an upgrade.

Again, I don't see how a Military is an upgrade from a Para3 as they're designed for two different things - one is a 3" general use compression lock knife, and the Military is a liner lock with a 4" blade.
It's like saying that a quarter ton truck is an upgrade to a small car when your only need for it is to drive in the city core and occasional trips across town. For those, the truck is overkill and a pain in the ass to park in some spots the smaller car fits without issue.
Awesome. Can't wait to see what I get
The upgrades don't make sense. Many who want a para 3 to get around carry laws can't even legally carry a military.
Adamsg
Yeah I was kind of incredulous seeing the upgrades too. Even without the legality aspect, the Para 3 is for someone looking for a sturdy small EDC. This like hey maybe you'll get a steel upgrade OR something you're going to have to put up on r/knife_swap.
Adamsg
Then go buy a para 3 someplace else for the same price.
This one looks a little strange, but I did well with the last Blue Box (Native 5 in S110V). The "Endura" picture is wrong, which I expect many have mentioned.
Sitting this one out. The Para 3 is too small for my hands. Would love the Military if it was tip up. Not sure why they do not modify it a bit to make it a four way pocket clip like so many of their other models.
Not to mention that you can get Para 3 at $129 free shipping to US which is $10 cheaper than here(delivered to California), and not risk not getting what you wanted.
This drop doesn't quite make sense. If i'm interested in Para 3, i probably won't care much about Military. These are completely different category of knife and different end of size spectrum.
massdrop01
I had to read it twice myself. I don't get it either. I love my Para 3 but I wouldn't ever consider the Military because it's not a knife I would ever carry.
Woooo, another Blue Box! I just to happen to have my G10 Native 5 (which I got in the last blue box) in my pocket.
I wouldnt consider the Military an upgrade. I mean, sure it’s more expensive but it’s a totally different knife. I want to know I’m at least getting a Para 3. Upgrade the steel or handles or add an additional item but changing the main item seems like they are just pushing inventory.

lol right? I wear size 13 gloves and carry the para 3 every day.
xformulax
I wear Large gloves and the Spyderco I carry the most is my Roadie, and I manage to use the knife functionally. Unless you're Andre the Giant, I'm guessing you can make it work.
They should at least throw in the case for everyone. I’ve done a bunch of these blue box things and it’s just a horrible feeling to always get the lowest possible item.
so.... is this a spyderco military drop like the main picture? or a para3 like what the drop and description says?
Kind of misleading that the first couple of pictures (and the only ones to display full size without clicking in, at least on my device) are pictures of the Military when this is ostensibly a drop for the Para 3.
wwwC
Glad to see MD resolved the main picture issue.
Next question though: the drop text suggests participants have a 10% of getting a Military, silver blade, with either black or camo handle (a little vague, but OK), and a 9% chance of getting a Military with black blade and black handle. Meanwhile, the photos show Militaries in silver/camo, black/camo (not mentioned in the text), and black/black, but no photo of silver/black. Can we get some clarification here, please?
Loot boxes for real. How do I unlock Darth Vader?
Massdropbear
You have to buy 1000 loot boxes, have played for at least 100 hours and you have to push the join button upside down with the finger of a lightly stunned ewok. While singing the wubnub remix. I mean it's not hard....
hmm interesting that you could be in for a Para 3 and end up with one of 4 different types of Spyderco Military's

The point of this lottery to win an upgraded Para 3. If you read the title it is called Blue Box Para 3. If I was going to just buy one out right I would do so. Maybe they should just call it Blue Box Spydercos.

Why would someone pay the same price for a blade that would take longer to reach them, and lack some extra schwag(SMKW has it for the same price, minus the mat: https://www.smkw.com/spyderco-para-3-with-black-g10-handle-and-drop-point-blade)?
This drop is at best a gamble between a large and smaller folder, and at worst, you pay expected retail price for the base product that will not be delivered in a timely manner.
Seems like this turned into a Black Blade Camo Dump. No Papers were included in the box with the knife. Anybody else?
