1) Caly 4.0 (4 inch blade), dark earth G10, wire clip, M4 steel

2) H1 Dragonfly Hawkbill SE

3) Lil' Ayoob. Same as G10 version but 2/3 size of the original (think PM2 to Millie)

G-10 Manix 2 in s110v with skeletonized liners. The inability to wash through the inside is my only complaint about the awesome LW version.

I agree; I would like to see torx screws instead of rivets on the LW Manix 2.

As for a new model I would like either:

- Native 5 with CBBL or compression lock; no swedge

or

- Mini Manix 2 with < 3" blade and narrower profile. Basically a Spyderco Embassy with CBBL.

1. Super Native - 3.5" S110V FFG blade, no swedge like on 2009 Forum knife, low riding wire clip, midlock or ball lock, caged is fine.
2. Baby Persian - C83 bolstered reduced to Kopa size. No Boye dent, no clip. Dark green micarta scales.
3. Bolstered Caly3 with solid ZDP189 blade thinned to .010" behind the edge, 2 mm stock and smooth Giraffe bone or olive wood scales

I'd design a folding swick that isn't classed as an auto.

Second knife would be a yojimbo xl with a 3.5 blade.

Keep it S30V and G10 so I can afford one. Coat the blade.

Call it the Yojumbo.

Dream Model #1: Start with a Caly Jr., stonewashed M390 blade, no swedge, Larger Spyderhole, Jimping on thumbramp & choil, add some stategic jimping to stock gray FRN handle, keep fishscale texturing on FRN, stonewashed wire clip, or stonewashed standard clip with ENGRAVED Spyder.

Dream Model #2: Start with a Caly 3.5, stonewashed M390 blade, flush mount pivot, add Anso (or similar) macro texturing to G10 scales, provide tip down carry option.
