I'm hoping the FRN Caly 3.5 would be part of the family

A Delica or Dragonfly, or both together, would be my first purchase.

I’d go for a TiCN Dragonfly and Delica. Midnight Blue or Dark Maroon FRN. Do we have any info stating if this run will be clad or solid?

Well, this would finally make me try the Stretch. Some shade of blue or green would be my choice for FRN color.

Caly 3.5 in FRN screw construction, would be my choice above all at this point. Not likely, I realize. Not like Sal is carrying a prototype or anything. But I do remember him mentioning something about that. Not the pinned vs screw construction, but FRN made in Golden? Am I imagining that?

I gotta say, the V-Toku2 Stretch is AWESOME, have you ever looked into that? Different chacteristics than K390, but still a “sharpeners steel”

V-toku2 is awesome. It wont blow anyone away with it's edge holding, but the sharpening experience is very pleasant. If I recall, it's fairly similar to 52100.

That's money. Time to get my first Endura/Endela/Stretch. Tough choice! Maybe 2 out of the 3...

This may turn out to be one of the most popular Seki sprint series, for me at least! (The Superblue series holds that spot for me so far.)

I hope the Endela is the first release -- I've wanted one for years, though I usually called it an Endelica or Delacura :D

Also looking forward to the Wharnie Dragonfly and Endura, which will be alot like a smaller Police 4 which might not alarm people as much. I would like the Wharncliffe Delica, but may hold off on that one because it's niche is sort of filled by my Q Ball.

Yep, that´s a tough one... But since I already have three Enduras, all PE, and had several more in the past, but have only one Endela, and that in SE, I´ll go Endela with this run, if we´re talking plain edge.

If I did not have any Endura and any Endela, I´d still go Endura for its longer, more versatile blade.. as much as I DO love the Endela.
Top three going by pocket-time: Endura 4 in VG 10/Micarta-scales; Stretch 1 in VG 10; Endura 4 in HAP 40

I hope this happens sooner rather than later.

I wonder if the P4 will be the first since Sal has talked so much about a P4 LW in this steel.

And now we’re verging on BBS’ K390 PM2 exclusive, which is fine by me.

Even so, I just ordered another K390 Police4, given that I like it so much but it’s been disco’d.

Hopefully the sale on the remaining P4 G10 models will prompt a few more people to try out the model and steel.

FWIW, the Police4 is not getting deeper discounts everywhere, nor is it still available everywhere.

True. For clarification, New Graham has them for $155, BHQ has them for $175.

DLT, Knife Center, Knifeworks, SMKW, OpticsPlanet, AG Russell, and BladeOPS, have them in stock as well, but at the regular price. There are more places with remaining stock, but I'm sure this is more than enough.
