I'd love to see a Super Blue Dialex Jr, as the blade shape and thin blade stock would match up nicely with the attributes of SB.

Romanian design + <S>Taiwan manufacturing</S> + Japanese steel + American knife company = Cultural Awesomeness!

Having worked for a Japanese controlled manufacturer I know that the Japanese are very proud of their specialty materials and put into place obstacles such as taxes to discourage export of some of them. They are a very proud and independent people.
There might be conditions and quantity limits also. I'm just geussing :o

I would love seeing materials like vg-10 produced in the US, but the whims that allow certain steels to be produced here or not probably are because of the proprietary nature of those materials.

I would like to learn more on this thread :)

S30V, S90v, CTS-20CP, M390, CTS-204p
Looks like we have plenty of steels to choose from I think. And who knows what we will get in future sprints.

Wow, Why is this a problem? We choose to use the steels that we use with the makers that we choose. To try to move steels around is complicated, expensive and far more effort than the rewards provide. There are good reasons for all of the shuffling of steels that we choose to shuffle.

If it's really important to have a certain steel in a certain design, I'm sure there are a number of custom makers that could accomodate.

I'd love to see more VG10, but not really enough to pay 20-30% more per blade. (And that's just an off-the-top-of-my-head calculation.)
There's a certain mfg who uses ZDP in high-profile American designs, but to be honest, for those prices (actually, at *better* prices...) I'm glad Sal has made a way for us to get steels like S90 and M390 with a heat treat that really does them justice.

With so many great steels produced here in US, and numerous steels being developed by Carpenter, I'm pretty happy the way things have been going.

It makes more sense to me now after Sal's second post. The makers are a key component of what makes a Spyderco. The quality of the knives I have suggest the products are top notch and the makers don't need to be told what material to work with. Rather Spyderco sets the standard that they desire for the product.

A very crude and limited interpretation on my part, but combined with the sentiments on my previous posts makes sense....................
