I'm getting that feeling and agree it's a great thing long term for the models and potential sprints if a bit trying for my patience aka my worst virtue...
I really wish Spyderco would ramp up their initial production numbers. Having the entire stock of a new knife sell out in a matter of minutes, then waiting six months for the second run to hit shelves is very frustrating.
I realize they do this to minimize their risk because a model may not sell well and they don't want a lot of stock sitting around, but what new model has come out recently (last two years) and didn't almost instantly sell-out?
[Note: notice I said NEW model and not a refresh of an older model]
The higher priced collaboration models oftentimes Japanese made don't seem to sell as well, but I agree with you on the Smock, Kapara, Ikuchi, and McBee. Seems like the sub $200 Taichung collaborations sell out fast
