I wish some distributors/dealers would read this thread already and commission a Jester! Instant sell-out
+1

There are three distributor exclusives now that this could be part of that would sell out easily. Any of these would be good choice and I would buy all three.

Glow the Dark VG-10 (Delica)
Gray Cruwear (Delica)
Teal S30V (Dragonfly)

I also think that Spyderco themselves should throw the Jester into the next Seki sprint series (Navy K390??) in lieu of the slower selling meerkat and/or manbug.

Also it uses the same scales as the Ladybug... They would already have the scales made if they produce a typical seki frn sprint run. I don't see the 2 recent meerkats as selling that well but maybe I'm wrong

Please God (and Sal) don't make it gaudy GITD :O that's a instant dealbreaker to me.

I voted burgundy or navy but at this point I will likely try to buy anything the come out with so I can get a Jester. Would like to see it come in FFG SE VG-10 or LC200N with torx pivot.

GITD looks to be almost white, so you could dye it any color you want.

I wonder if it would retain any of the glow in the dark properties after being dyed.

I'll know it, that's bad enough :) And a bit like Cinderella in reverse i must keep it in darkness during the day so it won't look like something from Toys-R-Us in the dark.

Hopefully not. You could always tar and feather it :D

Good point on the torx screws. Screw construction should be standard on all models these days.

I'm starting to think it is a profit margin thing with the dealers for why we don't see many exclusives in the cheaper models. Assuming a roughly 10% profit margin, they can profit $21 each on 1,200 Shamans or $6 each on 1,200 Jesters. Those numbers are entirely made up of course, but in this example that is an $18K difference in PROFIT...for one day (usually).

Our only hope may be for Spyderco to include it in the future runs of Seki Sprints (Navy K390?).
