If you could pick one discontinued knife to turn into a sprint..

Postby Candyman » Sun Nov 26, 2017 2:32 pm

If you could pick just ONE discontinued knife to turn into a sprint run which would it be? Mine would be the Sage 4.

Vesuvius, then Ayoob, then Centofante 4.

Interesting choices! Would you go with an inlay on the Vesuvius and if so what kind?

This is tough... So many choices! Junior, Ulize, Kiwi 4, Rock Lobster, Tuff, and more... Hard to choose just one!

Right now, I think the Rookie would be my top choice to see as a sprint.

I'd be fine with plain old G10 or solid CF.

FRN / LC200N Police 3.

The Police 3 is my favorite knife but the Pacific Salt makes a more practical EDC for me, being 2oz lighter and rust proof. I'd like to merge my favorite qualities of my two favorites.

I wouldn't be opposed to a Police 4 done up with the same materials.

Runner up would be full sized Calypso brought back with foliage green FRN scales and DLC M4 blade. I never got to try that design out and it looks like something I'd love. Spyderco never did an FRN run of them, and with the recent DLC M4 Manix run I'd like to see more DLC carbon steel offerings.

Carry rotation:

Pacific Salt 2 SE | Siren | Police 4 LW | Police 4 K390 | C95 Manix foliage green | Manix XL M4 DLC | Street Beat LW | Aqua Salt

"R" Model in dark green G10 and ZDP189

"R" Model in dark blue G10 and K390

Combo run of the Centofante3 and Centofante4 in BRG FRN and ZDP189 with a gold colored bug. These should be reasonably priced. The Centofante3 has always been a great value and the upgrade would likely still be reasonable.

I would love a Vesuvius and a Centofante 4.
No reason they couldn't be combined? The whanie Vesuvius 4?

Yes the C-60 Ayoob but in a similar G-10 handle or maybe even in Carbon Fiber handle. I would also just love to see an Ayoob with a newer/better blade steel. If they ever do an Ayoob model in a supersteel it will become my main EDC instantly.

For fixed blades discontinued I would love to see the TEMPERANCE 1 in LC200N in both SE & PE.

For a specialty blade discontinued it would be the G-10 or Carbon fiber HARPY model in PE & SE both. The sooner the better!

Small Persian with red G-10.
Kris with red G-10.
Superblue Barong with dark grey G-10 (and more cutting edge and less ricasso).

I know that's three, and you were just asking for one. :p

All great ideas, but I can't think of anything better than an R in K390 IMO.

Brown G10 Chokwe Salt in LC200N. Chokwes never really bother to clean their knives, and pretty much just ignore and live with the rust.

Or, brown XHP Chokwe.

More Caly 3 and Caly 3.5 sprint runs with different steels. Love the pattern.

Not discontinued, but I would also like to see both Endura and Delica get a FFG SE version.

Carried my Chokwe today. I really like that knife but it is restricted to non office carry for me.

It think most of us are hoping for a HAP40 Caly3.5 in dark green. :)

Original Temperance 1 with either 3v, hap40 or Cruwear. I would prefer one of each.

I would also like to see anything in burnt orange G10
