I'd be into a 3V Manix 2 sprint, with the original sabre grind.
If you really want a pry bar, I've got a Bark River Bravo in 3V that performs that role exceptionally well, while still being a heck of a knife too.
I've had a few 3V Bark Rivers as well. AWESOME knives, but I just think it would be cool to have a Spyderco folder with the Spyderco looks and ergonomics with the utility of a 3V Fixed blade. I'm not planning to baton firewood or pry a door open, so I'm not concerned about the knife exploding apart. I just think it would be cool to have a knife I can beat on (within reason) in a compact folding package in a format I enjoy like a Native, Manix or Military or Shaman or something.
Regardless of why myself or others want such a knife or the practicality of such a knife, I believe thing that Spyderco should be considering is will these knives sell? And in my opinion a Sprint of 3V in a Shaman, Military, Manix, PM2, and Native would be a very quick sellout. Not to mention it might attract a whole new customer base to the brand. Think of all of the fixed blade guys who drool over the 3V Bark Rivers, Advernture Sworns, LT Wrights, etc. Now a folder in a cool format with 3V comes along and they have to have it. Then all of a sudden they realize what they have been missing and become full blown spydieholics!
I just think there is an huge untapped market that Spyderco can reach with these knives that will then get hooked and buy other knives like the Salts and million other awesome knives Spyderco has.
