Perhaps we don't think of it as cost cutting. Perhaps your estimate of an added $25 is low. Adding a Ti liner where no spring is necessary and using solid CF will add far more than you think? Why make the model more expensive than is necessary? Our knives are expensive for a lot of people and a few dollars savings is appreciated by many. For some reason, it seems that you think it will change the value of the model. I think that may be true for you, but we'll see where the discussion goes?
I work in manufacturing. I will never suppose to tell you how to run your business, make any inference that I understand more about your business than you do, or have any delusions that I somehow may know better than you do when it comes to making Spyderco knives. There's just faaaar to much that
people don't understand. And well, you kinda sorta, seem to have, ya know, kinda had a tiny bit of success.
Suggestions are one thing but spouting costs and techniques and whatnot? Not me.
Thanks for all you do.
