It is a truly fantastinc design. Open frame construction, compression lock, solid thick stock (allowing for regrinds :D), not to mention a really secure grip and thumb ramp. It is a hard use knife by all of my definitions. I was a fan of the Superhawk when the Superleaf dropped so it was an obvious win in my eyes and hand. Always wanteda really high hollow grind to maximize geometry for slicing. If you find one on the secondary marketi recommend jumping on it.

Considering Eric's a master flipper, it's a shame they don't make the Spyderfly or Smallfly anymore.

I would also like to see anything in burnt orange G10
I knew that there were other Brethren besides me that had fallen in love with the TEMPERANCE 1 model :cool: That blade design with a supersteel would just be outright awesome IMO.

But don't overlook the value of the TEMP 1 in PE & SE both>> it is an awesome fixed blade>> Spyderco truly got it right the first time :cool:

How about some of that K390 in a Delica Wharnie where it'll get USED? Goldenrod yellow?

Spyderco Kumo, because it's a small and compact fixed blade knife. :)
I have one and would buy another one or two or......

Hmmm. Might have to pull out my super leaf and carry it for a while before I chime in on this topic. :)

Full sized Jess Horn (not baby). Full CF scales and a nice stainless steel, maybe S30V or SRS15? Keep the swedge!

Agreed! SRS15 is my first choice for Japanese steel, although if you're going to include non-Japanese I'd say B75P or RWL34 (XHP would be sweet as well). I'd throw in smooth, black G10 to emulate the old micarta.

Calypso Jr. is the ultimate Spyderco design for me (bottom knife in borrowed photo). If the Moki plant can't cut it anymore, move the design to another plant rather than let it die!
