There are 5 threads on page one with CRUWEAR in the title (well 6 now with this one!). It is constantly at the top of polls. Why can't we get this as a production steel? Does anyone actually buy S110V anymore? I would love to see the Blurple knives be "CQI'd" from S110V to CRUWEAR in the same way that BD1 is being replaced with BD1N. S110V will still be around for use in Sprints/Exclusives if the masses really start begging for it again in the future, and I am sure the current stock of S110V blades will be around for awhile, so why the heck not!
I was also VERY excited to see the Cruwear Delica this year and it has been in my pocket the most of any knife since I got it. I would love to see CRUWEAR replace ZDP-189 in the BRG scaled Seki knives as well if that is an option. You don't hear much about ZDP these days either.
All for CRUWEAR and CRUWEAR for all!
I like S110V and ZDP-189. I have knives in both and wish that I had more. As stated before, don't be a hater. I'm for moving Cruwear in to a position where it is used more, but not to replace excellent steels. S90V and Maxamet are excellent steels too.
I'd also rather have more stainless options than fewer too.
M390 might be good on a Street Beat. I'd love to see it happen. There are companies releasing knives larger than folders in M390.
It must be too expensive to make some of these sprint runs PERMANENT. I'd have liked to obtain a Shaman in S90V, but I never have money for these sprint runs, and they are really ridiculous, because they target the same 2000 Spyderco fanatics who then put them in a shoe-box in a closet to never be seen again. I don't know how many times I've asked for a Spyderco Custom Shop where we could order knives in specialized steels and handles. Others do it.
