Lime Green FRN anyone?

Postby hiredgun » Mon Mar 26, 2012 5:56 pm

Ever since the Lime Green Jester came out a number of years ago, I always hoped for more offerings in Lime Green FRN. Recently, USN had two knives done up in what is known as Toxic Green (Endura and Catcherman). Nothing against USN, but a black blade, part serrated knife is not my cup of tea. My hope is that USN has not somehow claimed the color and Spyderco will not produce anymore Lime/Toxic FRN knives except they be for USN. Simply put, I just love the color. I keep waiting for the day, if it will ever come, for something done up from Spyderco in Lime/Toxic Green.

I believe it's reserved for USN knives, out of courtesy, but I'm not positive. Personally, I like it that way :) .

Just had a thought:

What about a Lime Green/Toxic Green FRN Lava?

I would love to hear from Sal or have any other Spyderco employee's input on the future use of Lime/Toxic green. I know bold colors are not for everyone and there is an inherent marketing risk, but I just need to know. :rolleyes:

I would like to see a lime green Dragonfly 2 and maybe a Delica.

I'd imagine they'd refrain from calling it Toxic Green unless it was being done for the USN. But since Spyderco has used lime green in the past, I suspect the only issue would be whether they felt it would sell.

I would definitely be interested in more lime green without the USN logo. I hope they haven't claimed an entire color as their own. That seems silly (no offense, I'm a member there too).

I consider the Endura and Delica Green FRN to be "Lime" green. Anything outside of that would be something else, like Toxic Green.

Really? The Endura/Delica green is too dark to be lime green, IMO.

It looks like Spyderco's "lime green" is an exact match for USN's toxic green.

Here is the color we're talking about. (not my knives pictured)

I respectfully disagree. That green was once called "Playdough" green by Kristi. I am very happy that Spyderco introduced all the Endura and Delica colors, but that green ain't Lime. :)

And to think there could be a Dragonfly 2 or Squeak in this color just really gets me excited. :D
