Has it been long enough to start wishing for the new model? I don't think so. The first Spyderco Forum Model, the Military Plain Edge with the Pearl Spydie Bug, was just beautiful. I think Sal should do another Military Plain Edge for the next FORUM MODEL!!! One with Blue G10 Scales or Carbon Fiber Scales! WHAT DO YOU THINK????

How about a blue g-10 with CF inlay?

We all start with 10 fingers. Those with Spydies have 9 to spare, Still need a thumb. Good thing I still have 8 to spare...

Out of a hundred or so ELUs, you want to use the same one again?

Not me, thanks. I'd rather see a special run of the Wegner, Chinook or the large Calypso, or one of the soon to be released models.

I think a CF military would rock!

Well there was already the Military which is pretty big, so how about a small or med. size knife?
My suggestion is :

Calypso Jr. VG10 steel, flatgrind blade,plainedge, stainless handle with blue G10 grip insert.Also a gold clip with a black SpyderBug.

I don't know if I have mentioned it before <img src="wink.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle> , but I would suggest a VG-10 Delica PE with G-10 handle.

Keep it black tho.

With all the respect and despite being a Military fan, I believe, we´ve had enough of those in the past.

If there were to be another Forum Knife, I´d vote for: A retro "Q" or "R" model; VG-10 steel, G-10 or even better - CF scales, compression lock, reversable Ti clip and a special sheath (like the one that enclosed to the C27 Jess Horn )!

Take care!

The Military is awesome indeed, but I would much rather see another model.

Lets see.........How about a Wegner in blue g-10 or carbon fiber and VG-10 steel?

I would be interested in a Spyderco Forum Model, regardless of what it ended up being. Of course a Wegner(specially Jr)would be awesome. FMI, when was the Military Model out? Thanks, Jeff

Well since we are talking about voting (=hoping). Maybe we could see a Gunting with green G-10 scales and a tad bit longer blade. Would be very nice (and would shut up people like me constantly whining about a bigger Gunting folder).

depaul> you bring up a good point.

a Q with vg-10/g10 would be a nice forum model.

nice idea... a c49 in blue g10... vg-10 would be a great addition to the wegner jr. Not much could be done to impove it... maybe a Military type linerlock? Haven't heard of a military closing yet. The c48/49 are designed to allow a lockfailure with all fingers intact, just add a labrat(aka millie) linerlock on it and it would be good to go.

We all start with 10 fingers. Those with Spydies have 9 to spare, Still need a thumb. Good thing I still have 8 to spare...

I'd go with, let's see, a better knife that would cost more.
How 'bout a SS Civilian, with blue G-10 inlay, CMP-440V blade, with the SS parts of the knife black Ti coated? Put a black clip with gold bug on, or maybe even a cool blue clip.
I'd buy a couple, and would perfer that over a military (sorry <img src="sad.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle>)
If not do the military idea...maybe do both <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle>.

An honest man's pillow is his peace of mind

I just got my carbon fibre Civilian.I'm keen for a Carbon fibre Military or Police.
But then again I'm keen for anything in carbon fibre.
Sal and folks, well done on both the Carbon Fibre Civilian and the Worker Commemorative.
I love em both.

How about a "mouse" sized harpy with blue G-10 and call it the sparrowhawk?

Ronybear's idea sounds pretty good to me, better yet how about the same thing done with a Starmate. RKBA!

Anything okay for me, but I would seriously prefer a smaller knife. I can only use the big ones for display and I love to use a blade ...
I'd really love a Shabaria Junior with 2 1/2" to 2 7/8" blade ...
