Only if they ever make it!

I'm in for 10!

Sal, any kind of update for us Slysz addicts, please and thank you?

P.S.- I only ask because this is the last word I can find on it from early 2017 and we now have the Techno 2 in hand ;)
Eric has it on his list. His designs are popular with our customers so it will eventually be built. Eric opted for the Chef first, then the Techno 2, then the swayback.

How many days to the next reveal, plus perhaps as many as 120 days, if the Swayback is part of the next reveal. So, a while yet. :(

According to EDC Gear & Gun Reviews on YouTube, Spyderco showed the Slysz swayback at the USN Gathering over the weekend. Release date wasn't mentioned. Also there was a new small Nirvana, "coming soon."

The Swayback is rumored to go into production in January. A member of the Facebook group supposedly spoke with Eric at the gathering. I’m hoping this is true.

Stoked about the Swayback.

I was hoping the Slysz Rat would be next, but that Mouse Flipper he's been doing lately is insane.

I love a wharncliffe blade and love most Slysz designs. I'll more than likely grab one but I'd rather have the Bowie back...........

hopefully this model will come with a lockbar insert, but the lack of it on the techno 2 has me worried.

This is the first Slysz that really speaks to me.

I do love the Bowie, but the handle was too small.

Really though, I want to see this made.(thanks Abba)

Make the blade around 3.75" and it would be perfect! My hand would actually fit the handle! Also, make the steel LC200N and give it standoffs.

I've been patiently waiting for the Swayback since 2015 when I joined this forum. Such a great design that will sell out quick!

I’m an immediate buy when it drops. I was fully in 2+ years ago before I even joined the forum! It’s been my most anticipated for quite awhile.
Currently enjoying the most pocket time:
