I think the maker of the model might have difficulty working with the steels suggested. I'll present your case.

Sal, thank you for your consideration. Part of my love for the two Perrin bowies stems from reading your admiration of the models. I remember a post of yours that said something to the effect of "Even if the Street Beat doesn't maintain high sales, it isn't going anywhere. It's too nice of a design."

Since it is made in japan, maybe hap40 or vtoku2 would be more feasible?

Oh man, unlaminated hap40 or vtoku2 or superblue would be awesome! Just keep the black micarta handle.

Voted “not interested”.

With my fixed-blade allegiances already in place (ESEE; Blind Horse Knives>LT Wright Handcrafted Knives), I came to Spyderco for the folders.

Only the WaterWay, whose designer and development environment we are fortunate to know, has compelled me to open my wallet.

You have nice taste in fixed blades.

I definitely want two of these in 20CV, M390, CTS204P, or S110V. This design is classical. Never mind the naysayers. Just please do something like... HOLD two or three for me, one for each adult family member here, when they come out. A regular, ongoing, production run, at Spyderco would make me very happy. YES, I can imagine what they will cost, and we are talking $200 at least. So be it.

FULL SPEED AHEAD! MAKE IT SO!

I voted for stainless with DLC. VG-10 would be fine, and LC200N would be fantastic. More than most designs I think the Street Beat is well suited to DLC.

I'm surprised at how well this idea has been received. Didn't realize we had so many street beat fans :)

V- Toku2 or Hap40 would definitely make me consider this model. Laminated would be fine with me, but in a fixed blade I'd be happy with solid tool steel too.

Love my street beat. Would love LOVE a k390 or solid super blue version with a very slightly thinner grind or thinner stock. With maybe a burlap g10 or micarta handle like the temp 2 would look great I think.

I am really hoping that if this becomes a possibility we'll get a k390 street beat. I would love for it to have a dark blue g10 handle to match the existing k390 pattern with the police 4, but of course the black micarta is great too. That's probably my number one choice, but I would be super stoked for unlaminated super blue (or hap40 or v-toku2). I love them all, and I won't really complain no matter what we get as long as we get another version of the SB!! I don't think I'd like burlap micarta tbh, but to each his own. I would still buy several of them if the SB comes back. I paid an exorbitant amount (on ebay) for my back-up in VG10 after it was discontinued, so I am SO stoked that other people are showing interest in a return of the SB!!

I would also like to see a non-stainless sprint of the street beat. DLC or no DLC

If it ends up being non-stainless K390 or M4, I'd prefer the DLC. I don't know why people prefer carbon steel in what amounts to a 100% EDC, but I'd probably still buy one.

20CV, M390, CTS204P absolutely rock and they do not have to be pampered at all.

Yep but only if it’s in micarta. I would much prefer stainless also

I would like to see a couple of different Sprint Runs of the STREETBEAT but for different reasons. Sure I would like to see one in a newer/better steel than VG-10. But I also would like to see a Spyderedged version of it.
Reading this makes me think again that I should get a Jumpmaster. It is near the top of my "regular production knives to get, maybe" list.

Same here. I am not huge into fixed blade, but the Aqua Salt and Jumpmaster are at the top of my list to get at some point. One can never have enough H1 SE!
As much as I like the Jumpmaster I still like the Spyderedged version of the TEMPERANCE 1 even better. But I would just love to really do a hard test with a STREETBEAT in SE. I think that could potentially be about the most handy fixed blade for EDC uses a guy could ask for. It isn't bad at all in PE but in SE there are a lot more jobs I could accomplish with it.

I'd definitely buy one in VG-10 with a Dymondwood/Pakawood handle.

Ooh...I love the idea of a pakkawood handle. I'd still prefer to see something like M4 or K390, but as long as the Street Beat comes back you can't really go wrong.
