Sal, everyone else on the forums,
Here's the deal.
Over time I've noticed allot of demand for certain bladeshapes, styles, sizes, models, etc.
There is no single blade that has or can have everyone's demand materialized.
But, I tried to come up with a design that would fit a whole lot of people's desires.
Many people want stuff like the Jester back or in a different size, they want certain steels, handle material, etc.
Bad part is, it isn't always good for sales and may not suit the knife functionally and/or aesthetically.
The Jester however, is a really useful knife style.
With a few tweaks it would serve allot
of people on a larger scale.
I figured I'd implement this is a concept idea for a new knife.
And the name suits it well, Spyderco Dragon.
It's about time we have another mythological name after the Phoenix and Harpy!
Shown here with a lock-back, but very well suited for more types, even a compression lock.
Tried to draw the G10 as handle material, but come to think of it, CF, FRN or even stainless would look amazing too.
VG-10, because it's a perfect all-round steel, especially for prototype's.
Handles are very similar to the Endura ones, and so is the overall size.
Perhaps, this would be a Ladybug and Jester scenario, same handles (would save allot in costs).
Two sizes of this knife would stock the entire market, bigger knife guys/girls would have the Endura size.
Smaller knife guys/girls would have the Delica size.
Two sizes, almost the same design, the Dragon
and the Hatchling
Sketch isn't all that great, but you'll get the idea of what I mean
In my eyes, this is a model that Spyderco could REALLY use in their line-up.
It appeals to a large group of existing fans and models like this attract new customers and fans.
And it's something fresh, a little of the old Spyderco's we've all come to love mixed with a new design.
So, what do you guys think?
