If you could pick any model to sprint run in LC200N, which would you choose?
I'd go with the Native Chief. With the linerless construction I think it would be easy to turn it into a full fledged Salt. I'm planning to pick one up in S30V but LC200N would make it even more special.
manix 2 is what i want the most, followed by the lil native, but really, i’d like to see all the golden models at least get a standard lc200n production run. lw is fine, but i’d really like g10 with liners.
Shaman first, chief second. For some reason my s110v military is rusting more than ever before on this job (Chesapeake Bay). Needless to say, my byrd rescue 2 doesn't look pretty. I'm too tired after work to do maintenance on my knives (I've also been sick as a dog for the past 10 days). I just take a shower, eat, and sleep. A few more paychecks and I'll probably be getting a Caribbean and possibly a Pacific Salt SE. Not having to worry about rust has recently become a very high priority for me. I have to pick the Shaman, despite it having very small pivot washers it does have liners to back them up. If I was only using the knife on land I could go with the chief. But the one bonus of no liners on the chief would be one less thing to rust.
Imagine a Shaman Salt with LC200N liners and a backlock. Oh boy...
The FRN Stretch or CF Chaparral would be my first choices. No need for the "full Salt treatment", as I've never had an issue with rust anywhere except the blade. For me it would just be about having an LC200N blade in a platform I'd want to carry.
For the past 10 years I've been barking off the rooftops for another full Spyderedged Catcherman model like the old AUS-8 full SE Catcherman. And I would like the exact same serration pattern too. And to have that in LC200N would be just great IMO.
Also I've been wanting to see a Sprint Run of the original TEMPERANCE 1 fixed blade model. Yeah I would like to see it in LC200N as well>> but the original TEMPERANCE 1 was available in PE & SE both>> so I would like to see the TEMP 1 in PE & SE both in a Sprint Run. What a super outdoor fixed blade knife that would be.
But just ask "xceptnl" how he likes the full SE Catcherman.. Then I think most of the other Spyderville rank & file would also want to see the Catcherman resurrected in full Spyderedge
