What Knife / Knives would you like to see from Spyderco iether discontinued or new ?

Postby zeroed4x » Fri Jul 12, 2013 10:04 pm

I'd like to see a Spyderco not Byrd but a Spyderco version of the Crossbill with either a 3.75" S30V or VG10 blade and FRN but preferably G10, no wire clip but a real clip.

A large size Native 4" VG10 or S30V blade, high polished with the same geometry as the original, G10 would be great.

A large version of the Endura, "The Super Endura XL" or Super Police... whatever they come up with. A 4.5 - 5" blade version made from s30v or vg10 and slabs of g10. I know it would be similar to the Police but a slightly longer blade. And one more important item, SABER GROUND BLADE with high polish and not the shoddy half finished look that you've been feeding us for the last few years.

O.K. guys getter done

Make the endura and delica in foliage g10 again! And offer those, the manix, and the military/pm2 with multiple color g10 options without being sprint runs! Tactical colors more than skittles colors... And more black DLC coated blades!

Future Stretches in CF, G10, or even Ti please!

Try making one in Taiwan to open up new steel options. I LOVE Zdp, but variety is good.

I can think of a few that I'd love to see.

The return of the midlock Jigged Bone Kiwi in its original form would be great. A full flat ground blade without the hump would make it even better.

The bolstered cocobolo Stretch put into production, either as a Sprint or Limited Edition.

A smooth bolstered version of the Chaparral. The good folks in Taichung do excellent work on screw construction knives, so I'd and I'd really like to find out whether they can match or top the Japanese on a pinned knife.

EDITED TO ADD:

One more, a revised C83 Schempp Persian. Bolstered, like the original, but with a full flat ground blade like the Persian 2 only with a 14mm Spyderhole and with no Boye dent in the lockbar.

5 inches police 3, vg 10,g10 and a lanyard hole, that sounds wicked... But im partial for FFG yet i expect a stiff blade so gotta ramp up the thickness a bit.

I would like to be able to get a waved + ffg + zdp + colorful delica/endura and also being able to chose the edge type, g10 colored slabs would be even better !

I would like to see the chinook 1 back with screwed construction, 3v steel, and a four ways clip, no wire clip ( duh ) and no skeletonized liners, make it available in full SE and i would get two...

What about resurrecting the worker with the exact same handle as the delica 4, vg10, full ss or g10 or even zytel, with screw construction ?

Every chance I get I put in a plug for an H1 full size Dyad.

I am really hoping to see the FFG Kiwi prototype, that Wouter showed us, be released. I have yet to test out a wharncliffe but that design looks amazing, IMO.

As far as a future design, I think a modified Para 2 would be cool. I had one and found it too large. If Sal and Eric could design a thinner, slightly smaller model and release it with CTS XHP then I would be all over it. I think someone offered to name a smaller Para, "Scout". Sounds good to me. :D

1. 3.5" FFG Native 204P or better steel
2. Clipless Giraffe bone Kopa VG10 will be fine
3. Damascus bolstered Caly3 with ancient ivory micarta scales.
4. Seki made kitchen knives: Santoku, 4" Paring, 9" Gyuto.

PM2 in a tool steel? Given SB and M4 successes, not everything has to be stainless. The PM did have D2. O1 and A2 would intrigue me.

Option to get different steel for my LH Military. I'm tempted to take a Cruwear blade and add some metal, then regrind the tang where the liner locks up.

Have wondered if something like this would work as well... but it may be better to just keep pushing for a LH Millie sprint :D

Also would love to see a micarta Chaparral.
