^^^^^^^^^^What he said x 1000000
I guess you can tell that I (like others) am really looking forward to this new version Stretch.
I also missed out on the Grey G10 Caly 3.5 Super Blue - which is a really beautiful looking knife and I am thinking that a new version Stretch equivalent sometime in the future would also be an amazing sprint version. A blueish grey G10 is quite a nice colour!
We haven't even seen a pic of a prototype yet and I'm already salivating over hopes of a potential Grey G10 Super Blue Sprint sometime after the new Stretch FRN's have been established in the market. Since a grey Super Blue Sprint Stretch already exists in FRN - it only makes sense to one day have the next Super Blue new version Stretch Sprint to be released in G10.
As I've said before....I believe that I will be collecting Spyderco's for the rest of my life .....and I'm only 44 right now. So hopefully before I hit the big 50 I'll have a grey G10 Super Blue Stretch in my hot little hands. This would also be a realistic thing to hope for as well since Super Blue is after all a Japanese steel.
I've never had grey G10 so I don't know how long it takes to get grimy looking but the one drawback that I've noticed is that it does seem to get dirty easy - at least in the pics of users that I've seen. Does no one clean their knives? Or does the grime just get embedded into the G10 that easily and is difficult to remove? You'd think a citrus based cleaner would be able to cut through hand oils easily enough since mechanics GoJo (& similar cleaners) strip off motor oil from your hands readily enough.
Anyways....... as in the movie "What about Bob?" ........I have to keep thinking to myself.... "baby steps". I am still extremely happy to hear of the potential for a simultaneous CF release! Hmmmn that last sentence almost sounded exquisitely naughty!
Can't wait for the pics! I've been reading through quite a bit of this forum since I've joined last year (and was lurking for quite a bit before that) and it seems that having pics of a prototype before an official event such as the yearly Amsterdam meet is quite a rare thing!
Thanks for the treat Sal!
I'm sure that I'll be blown away......even with the Coyote brown G10
