Mantra 3: Eric told me that they were doing a Mantra 3 with a compression lock and a stainless steel at Blade '16, so that gives us an idea of how long it can take these things to develop. I love my Mantra, but I am super tempted by this one. I prefer the all-Ti look, but I do like this one a good bit. This ought to be a good companion to the Sliverax in the line-up.
Amalgam, Brouwer, Smock: These all look pretty good.
Techno 2: YES. Marcin Slysz had a Mouse II in the Spyderco prototype case at Blade '16, and I was fortunate enough to hold it. I've been a big fan of the Mouse II design and I've wanted to see it in a Techno 2 form for a while, so this is going to probably be a must-buy for me.
You know, I was going to slow down on knife purchases this year, but that's one, maybe 2 or 3 more models to buy, outside of what else they may show us at Blade or Amsterdam.
