You sir are a lucky man.
I broke the lock on mine doing some hard use car repair with my trusty zpd fully serrated endura a few weeks ago
They really need to bring this one back.
I can assure you all they won't bring back any ZDP-189 Spyderedged blade. Spyderco said that because of the extreme brittle properties of ZDP-189 that it didn't work out well in a serrated edge and that they had several complaints with those blades in SE.
The ideal properties for a serrated edge are somewhat different than they are for a plain edge. I've found over the years that most of my better Spyderedged units have blade steel that doesn't make the best steel for plain edges. There are a few exceptions like VG-10 and to some degree XHP but it's mostly blade steels with properties like ductility and good tensile strength that tend to do well with teeth.
