Kapara, with everything the same except the handles. They need to be streched a bit to wrap around the liners. The locking tap could be larger, with more access and it would not pinch my hand when operating it with the hole.

Slysz Bowie, but larger(3.75") and an integral compression lock. I really liked this knife, but the handle was too small.

All of my sprints below would have white handles and do not all follow the rules explicitly. :)

Native 5 with no choil, as stated above.

Caly 3.5 as it is, but all metal parts made of LC200N

Baby Horn to match the Caly 3.5(this more than any)

Dodo 2 with Compression lock.

That's all I've got for now.

I want a nice Taichung back lock. The only back lock for Taiwan that I can think of is the chaparral.
I’m thinking of a domino, lose the flipper, use a back lock. Add a bolster and polished g10.

Lil temperance 3 with thinner blade and a little more point to it. Would be like a choil-less para3.

Did not think that anyone would second that wish of mine.
I liked many things in my Native 5, but not that the overall length of the handle would principally offer enough space for a full four finger grip, but due to the choil and accordingly shaped handle does not, so I HAD to choke up. Furthermore, the bladelength would fit my needs for an EDC knife, but the choil does sacrifice too much edge.
I like choils in even smaller (Chap) and in bigger knives, not in the Native size. Just true for my personal needs and handsize of course, I can understand that for others the Native is perfect.

Not sure if these qualify as "sprint" ideas but...

PM2 skinny backlock. Similar to the Manix2 Backlock, but with thinner stock rather than thicker. Wire clip.

Manix2 LW Carbon Fiber, screwed construction.

3.5" Police4, K390.

FFG Rookie, K390.

Slysz Rat

Wood scaled Chaparral

Paakawood PM2

etc

Just to get you right: You mean, you want more Taichung backlock knives, but you do not mean you feel the existing Taichung backlock is not nice enough, right?

For I think the Chap backlock alongside with the one of the Native 5 is the best I ever experienced

I like the chap. The blade is a little thin for my taste and wish the handle was a little bigger. We know Taichung can make a superb back lock. I just want more options.

Chap with a thicker blade and bigger handle would look a lot like a Native, wouldn't it?

Not to me. I have 2 problems with the native. The choil is too long, which loses cutting edge. A choil feels right on the para’s or the chap. The native doesn’t. Also, the butt end of the native tapers too much. It’s like there is too little to hold on to.

I'd love for the Polestar to get the Para 3 LW treatment - the rounded scales, wire clip, BD1N, etc. It doesn't have to be a compression lock.

G10 sliverax? Give the rear of the handle just a bit more thickness but keep the forward part thin, emphasize the egg shape even more.

Buuuut since you did say "let's dream"....

An ikuchi smock dyad hybrid. So two blades, one serrated one plain. Ikuchi style fit into the handle. Smock style front flippers with jumping for the serrated and button compression locks.

C95 Manix in a Grey or Brown G10 with DLC Cruwear or DLC 3V. I'd take a Gayle Bradley 1 in this combo as well.

1) Would love to see some variety in colours, but without the baggage and cost of sprint steels
Examples - the pink Native 5 and pink PM2's are otherwise bog standard, but the pop of colour adds some interest from plain old black

2) Lil' Native with 2.5mm stock

3) Native/Lil' Native with sheepsfoot/wharncliffe blades (similar to suggestion of same on Chaparral)

4) Smock that is available to purchase :p
Past: Dragonfly, Air, Rhino, Lil' Native, Caly Jr., Brouwer, Chap LW, Para 3 LW, Native 5, Watu, ‘Chef, Mantra 2, PM2, Smock, Advocate, Kapara, Shaman, GB2, Police 4, Bradley Bowie, Province

Present: Techno2, Para3 Maxamet/XHP, Military 204P/Rex45

Future: Police 4 FRN, Shaman S90V

Regrets: Para 3 Cruwear :(
