1. Proficient

2. Lil native

I’m wondering if micarta would be possible on the linerless g10 models? Because if spyderco could do it, then the chief would be number 1 on my list.

Though against the grain of what it is...GB2 would be pretty dreamy to me!
2nd that, or even a tenacious

I was thinking the Tenacious and Resilience as well. They are choiless tanks of folders. Cruwear and Micarta would make them two of the best knives in the whole Spyderco lineup.

Do I also get the thicker rounded scales with this dream combo?

For the record I think it's a combo that most fixed blades should be done in so I'm on board with the Street Beat and others.

Folder wise of course I'm gonna say Caribbean and Sliverax because I want more versions of them. After that I'd probably say a Military or Chinook. The Shaman would have already been my first pick.

I'd love to see the shiny black micarta that was on some older Seki models come to the P4. But a Japanese knife deserves some Japanese steel. What's the Japanese equivalent of Cruwear? Hap40?

Add the contoured scales of the shaman micarta and this would be awesome.

Manix XL, Manix, Manix Backlock, Chief, and Native (the linered Native would be great in this combo) would all be must buys for me.

As would most of the flagship Seki backlocks like the Endura, Delica, Endela, Police, and Dragonfly. A new Micarta Jester in Cruwear would be fantastic as well, but I would still prefer the unbuffed finish of the Shaman's micarta to the polished finish on the vintage Micarta Jesters.

This unbuffed Micarta (any color...natural, OD Green, Denim, Burgundy, or even Black) plus CPM-Cruwear is such a winning combo. Time to maybe prune some of the production one-offs (S110V, Maxamet, ZDP-189) and replace them with this combo in the production space to meet demand. Dealers can always commission exclusives of S110V, Maxamet, and ZDP-189 if the natives get restless, but I have a feeling that won't happen for some time. Plenty of inventory for those steels out there to meet the demand.

Why not? Personally, I'm kind of Para 3'd out too but I think it might be nice with some Micarta scales, especially if they had a little more radius to the edges.

I'll give another vote to the Native 5. Again, if they could contour the scales like the fluted CF that would be spectacular. Blue or OD green please
Of all the things I've lost I miss my mind the most!

Manix XL was my second choice. I'd love a set of OD green micarta scales for mine.

I've got two models I would love to see with a Cruwear blade and Micarta scales. First the original C-54 Calypso>> Second the C-60 Ayoob but only in PE for that blade steel.

In the fixed blade category I would love to see the Streetbeat in that steel with Micarta handle.

If we are going to kick it old school I am going to really go out on a limb and say the Ocelot with unbuffed Burgundy Canvas Micarta! I'll throw the Starmate in there for good measure too. And come to think of it, the GB1 and GB2 would be awesome in this combo.
