I would love a Jess Horn lightweight in any steel. You thinking that or something a tad classier?

Edit: reread your post, sorry. Yes to both!

A Centofante 4 in SB would be quite the slicer :D

So many great ideas for this steel! I'd prefer the Vesuvius over the Cento 3, only for the lock.

I'm still thinking the Caly 3 will be the next one we see, but maybe things have changed? Regardless, I'd love to see both of these make the list.

How about a santoku remake in super blue? In the kitchen you could whip up a nice patina quick!

Delica and Endura are great knives! They're the low priced crack samples that'll get you hooked on spyderco! Feed the need!

The Jess Horn is one of the knives I have always wanted. Super blue is a great idea, good thinking Ken. I have drooled over this model for years, I guess it would be my grail knife.

A whole kitchen set... Nice burl handles. I like! ;)

You and me both. Of all those discussed, I really like this idea most. Seems a great fit.

I like that idea. FRN handles would be nice, but Micarta would be superb.

I don't think any knife in SB would be a bad idea (within reason). The Cento 4 and Jess Horn are really great sounding because I missed the originals. Regarding a full knife set in Superblue with burl handles, I wish I could afford something like this.

I've been thinking. A Balance in Super Blue and with carbon fiber handles would be absolutely amazing! And quite the gentlemans foldes *-*

Or a Michael Walker. Or a Rookie! Or a J.D. Smith!

Argh there are just so many good candidates for SB

+1 for a JD Smith in Super Blue.

And, of course, the Stretch in Super Blue (With a blue FRN handle, naturally) would be awesome.

Bit off topic...I would love and will beg and beg to get a new Michael Walker!!! M4 and polished micarta!! Navy blue polished micarta and M4 would be totally killer.
Sal, please please make one of these!!!

I think I've read that Sal doesn't like to use Micarta. Something about warping, I believe.

I'll always cast my vote for more Super Blue and if the idea of a liner lock model is being considered, I'd contemplate voter fraud to get that happening :D

Shrinkage/expansion, as I recall.

That would be sweet. I really like this knife in VG10. It's my most used knife these days. But I'd be all over one in SB.

The Jess Horn is a favorite model of mine. I use a burgundy FRN & ZDP-189 sprint run model a lot. I never got one of the older micarta models. I'd definitely be interested in a new one with SB and either Micarta or even smooth G-10 scales.
