I would like that too, but going to FRN usually means changing the set up a little, and the lock up with it.
Hope it can be done, though.
The only Spyderco model that used FRN and a liner lock that I can recall was the Cricket model back in the day. Great knife. The FRN Police will probably fill the void for users wanting a Military lightweight bc I think a lot of users have been clamoring for a backlock Military as well so this will probably be the closest they are likely to get. I don't foresee spyderco making a lw Military but we will see. I am looking forward personally to the Para 3 lw and the Caly 3.5 lw. I hope the Para 3 lw has great success and spyderco is encouraged to develop even more lw models, for instance, a lightweight comp lock lil native.
Oh man, me too. We are thinking about leaving SF and Boston is up there on our places to move (my wife works in higher ed). The thought of having to live with Boston knife laws makes me sad. The Lil' Native is perfect for that city, but I prefer thinner stock.
