But with that being said I would still prefer both of them with G-10 handles. The more I get into this Spyderco hobby/obsession the more I value a solid, rigid G-10 handle for day to day EDC uses.
Now there is another argument to be made that both models may be two of the very best models that Spyderco made with stainless handles. The designs of both models i.e. blades and handles are super IMO. Now FRN has it's place to be sure but I personally have much more confidence in G-10 handles.
I am honestly kind of surprised that the Worker sprint can still be had. I purchased a user and it is my favorite and most carried blade right now. I just purchased a NIB as a backup. I really love this model and would like to see more G10 iterations. Perhaps the next one could be in Hap40 with Natural Jade, Blurple, or Red G10 scales. I think that combo would sell much quicker than the VG-10 model.
I am also hoping to see a Rookie G10 sprint. Again in Hap40 with any of the G10 scales I mentioned. Throw a G10 Delica, G10 Dragonfly and G10 Jester in that request as well. A whole family of small Hap40 backlocks (all with full liners) with an interesting color G10. I'd buy a couple sets of those!
