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

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?).

Honestly, I'd rather have FFG SE LC200N.

...but I'd take anything!

Yep! And I'd rather have Cruwear, but beggars can't be choosers so I'll take anything as well! K390 seemed most likely with this Sprint series coming up.

This might help grease the wheels.

It was decided that the K390 Endura family series will NOT be a Sprint, but regular "In-the-line" models.
