Here are some things I would like to see from Spyderco:
1) Mule re-runs. For us late-comers and missed-outs that would enjoy some steels that have already come and gone. (I suppose the re-run concept could be expanded to complete knives as well).
2) Micarta handles. A favorite; I suspect someone else likes them too???
3) Big Game Hunter Knife/Saw Combo: Concept is a folder that has a blade and a bone saw and an ergonomic handle that is not too small or too big and comes with a sheath for wearing horizontal or vertical on a belt. (See Picture and narrative). Would like this knife/tool to disassemble/assemble easy for thorough cleaning. Hence, a system where the blades could be swapped out for like kind when worn out or to alter the knife/tool for your personal preferences (i.e. bone saw vs wood saw blade, or blade with or without gut hook, or standard steel vs super premium steel blade, or ????? (use your imagination here and the list could get lengthy). Since this is now a modular system an assortment of handle color, materials, and possibly shapes. Narrative: For many years of big game hunting I used the saw on the left and fixed blade in the middle to gut and skin antelope, deer, and elk. The tools were carried in a fanny or back pack while pursuing animals. One year I left camp in a hurry and forgot to grab my pack which left me a couple miles from camp with a harvested animal and no knife & saw. Swore this would never happen again and wanting to shed weight and free up pack space I purchased the folder on the right. It has been used for many years to gut and skin antelope, deer, and elk. It is always on my belt so I never leave camp without it and the saw and fixed blade reside in the camper for back-up if ever needed. The B__k folder has been in production for many years so apparently doing well enough with sales to keep it around so I suspect a viable knife/tool concept as is. However, I would like to see the concept improved upon: 1) ergonomics, more comfortable handle as a much firmer grip is required when using the saw, 2) slightly longer length in the handle and saw blade would be more functional and ergonomic while still small enough to wear on your hip/belt, 3) bone saw tooth like the G----r vs a wood saw tooth, 4) no gut hook, just my personal preference, 5) don't think it matters if the blades pivot on the same side of the handle or opposite (B__k hypes one handed deployment in sales but don't think it matters).
OK Spyderco now it is up to you.....
So many knives - so little funds!!!
