Just posted in the 'most overlooked' thread a bit on the Junior and thought this deserves a topic on it's own.
I love my Junior, I really do. Sturdy no-nonsense workman's blade, versatile comp lock, fantastic handle, comfortable to carry, easy to clean. My only gripe: this is first & foremost intended for kids. I know, Spyderco has done a great job turning it into a generic one-size-fits-all but I cannot stop wondering how a beefed-up version (for convenience called Senior henceforth) would look and feel like.
As the Tatanka clearly indicates there is a market for slightly-larger
folders, I was just wondering how you guys would feel about a Junior-based Senior. This thread is not about changing the steel or handle material, but rather on gathering input on 'would this be the ultimate backpacker's dream', 'how large would be too large?' and ultimately 'would you buy one?'.
