Hey Chapman I too would like to see the "Flat Iron" return in H-1>> I had never ever even thought of that but the more I think about it the more I like the idea.ChapmanPreferred wrote:Flatiron in H1 would be outstanding and Impala in an upgraded steel for PE edge retention. The Spot in SE H1 would be brilliant as well.
Brother I too would like to see more variants of the Harpy model. It is one of the great Spyderco Hawkbills I cut my teeth on. But the Harpy really isn't an obscure model by definition even though a case could be made that Plain Edged Harpy models are extremely tough to come by. But I sure would like to see another G-10 Harpy or even a super beefed up version with a Micarta or Carbon Fiber handle and a supersteel blade.Farmer Brown wrote:Plain edge, all stainless Harpy.
Like the one sold in Japan.
Well, Spyderco gave the Tusk the C06 model number that had, up to now, been associated with the Yachtsman, so I'd say it's what the Yachtsman evolved into after 30 years on the drawing board.BadFish wrote:I do believe the yatchsmen is actually the tusk. I could be wrong if someone could clarify that would be great.
Yep...my thoughts exactly on these two as well! I never owned an Ocelot for exactly that fear, but I really did like the design in every other aspect.JD Spydo wrote: I never ever understood the paw prints on the Ocelot. If they would have just been an indent on the handle rather than those fully reamed out holes I could have lived with it. But like I've said in the past I had a couple of those and if you used them they would always end up sticking because it was all but impossible to get all the animal residue out of those paw print holes>> which is why I don't own one anymore.
I always thought that Spyderco's ROOKIE model was close to being Spyderco's absolutely perfect all around pocket knife in their entire line up. The blade length, handle design and well thought out ergonomics of the folder are great and I've always been baffled as to why the ROOKIE model didn't become an all out icon Spyderco folder.
It always baffled me as to why they restricted that great "Dialex" design model "the ADVENTURA with just a stainless handle being offered. I've always thought that a G-10 handle would have been near perfect for that model. I really enjoyed my ADVENTURA when I owned it. Because my 2 favorite Spyderco Recurve models up till now were the Spyker and the Adventura.bh49 wrote:If Spyderco produce G10 or peel-ply CF Adventura I will be interesting, but I would keep VG10. I stopped carrying my Adventura after it slipped from my hand.
I think that the popularity the C-111 Captain has attained since it's being discontinued has risen to a point to where you would not have to do much to bring back the Captain IMO>> However I do think you're on to something concerning the Breeden RESCUE model. I thought that knife really got poor marketing, poor timing and was just plain misunderstood>> along with the fact that they didn't offer it up in Spyderedge I believe really shot that model in the foot bad.M80 wrote:Captain, Breeden Rescue, Dodo, Spyderkeys
I'm not sure what could be done with the "Poliwog". It had such a narrow group of fans when it was in the main line up. And do keep in mind you won't talk to a bigger Eric Glesser fan that I am. His Dodo I think was truly Spyderco's best specialty type knife ever IMO. The Manix truly speaks for itself.MacLaren wrote:Not sure if its been mentioned, but the Poliwog.

But for whatever reason I could never warm up to the Poliwog and it just didn't even seem like a design of Eric's at all. I'm clueless on that one.
I think that one was obscure for a reason IMO and I'm not knocking it per se but again it's fanbase was very narrow and I'm not even sure what I would use one for if one were given to me.
Yeah you may have something there. I bet it is hard to obtain one for anyone collecting the more obscure Spyders>>> and for that reason I sort of regret trading my SPUR model that I used to have. I had even at one time thought about carrying mine at one point but the blade just wasn't long enough for my daily cutting chores.MacLaren wrote:But that's just it!
Its obscure and its one heck of a conversation piece.
