The amazing HH UKPK and two fun variants, the first with a CTS-BD1N drop point blade in the ruby red G10 scales and the HH S30V leaf blade in some (stock) old school burgundy FRN UKPK scales:

I am really hoping for a repeat in any different blade configuration. I have been carrying mine a lot and it is just a fantastically made knife.

lately I've been using this the most, and am starting to like it even more than my customized bugout and both my para 3 lws. It's insanely light, and has proven to me that I don't really need a locking blade for most of my tasks which is mostly office-droning. Also the ergonomics are insanely good, possibly better than any other knife I have. And the stock is very nice and thin, I think as thin as the chapparal. Wouldn't mind some other ones in cool colours :)

I'd be all over a brown G10 UKPK with a Cruwear drop point blade.

This version has been such a sell-out success, there must be a case for other steel variants at very least, surely?

This is still one of my favorite knives I have. Would be great to see other variations come along, must buy in my book!
Currently have 20 :spyder: 's in 14 different steels.

Personally I am absolutely satisfied with this model and steel choice, I would much rather that Spyderco gave the UKPK a little break and focus on giving us new slipjoint options. I mean, even Zero Tolerance is getting into slippies now, doesn't get any weirder than that.

I'm definitely looking forward to the elusive non-locking Lil Native, but I would love for them to give us another high-end slipjoint... Maybe a sequel to the Spyderco PITS? Always wanted to give the original a try, but it's going for silly prices now.

Or maybe a bigger and burlier Roadie could be an interesting proposition, make it in G10 or micarta, able to be disassembled and call it the Roadster :D

My HH UKPK is on me today! Since receiving this one I haven't carried my other two UKPS or either of my Urbans
Of all the things I've lost I miss my mind the most!
