To me the Worker is the classic Spyderco. It was their first knife and the one that started it all. The latest G10 Sprint was very nice,
but the cost of G10 models out of Seki is too high and sales suffered. The lined G10 also made this a heavy knife for its small size. I feel like we need a new modern take on this classic design.
I'm thinking we need an FRN Worker LW Salt. FRN would allow many Spyder newbies to experience this amazing blade design in an affordable, lightweight, rustproof package.
An FRN Worker LW Salt in H1 would really be the ultimate modern upgrade to the original classic design. TiCN coated PE and SE H1 blades tucked into some black bidirectional FRN scales would be amazing. Add Torx screw construction and a deep carry wire clip (skip the lanyard hole or make its placement secondary to the deep carry clip placement) to really bring this design up to match what most people want to see these days.
The worker blade shape is a very functional and useful shape that I really love, but I just didnt like the weight of the G10 in a package that small. I would EDC a Worker Salt for sure though.
CRU-CARTA THEM ALL!
