I'd like to see:
- FRN handled knives with a black blade. The stainless handled knives are super cool, but just too heavy for me.
- More wire clips! Spyderco's wire clips are fantastic, especially the ones that are deep pocket carry. And this seems to be a very desirable feature, with people spending $20+ to add a deep pocket carry clip. I know wire clips aren't for everyone, but I really like them, and especially appreciate that they are a little bit less scratchy when I accidentally bump into something.
Cara Cara 2 FRN black blade/wire clip would be super awesome, and I bet it would sell.
I'm 100% ok with 8Cr13Mov for this price point. Spyderco squeezed a lot of performance out of it and I don't think it's really comparable to a lot of knives from competitors with this steel. If there is a way to upgrade somewhat without a price increase, that would be great. But I really think it is ok for most people as-is.
One additional thing, and this is probably just me: It sure would be nice if the printing on the blade was a little bit cooler. If it's at all possible, maybe the text could just be moved down a little and curved around the pivot. Or maybe something more like what's on the Tenacious. Is a tiny detail, but just sort of detracts from perceived quality for me.
