IMHO The worse thing Spyderco could do is make it a regular production knife as it would greatly lower the demand. When is the last time you saw people get this excited for a blurple anything?NickShabazz wrote: ↑Sun Nov 10, 2019 7:26 pmI know lots of folks like the hassle and chase of sprints, but why not just make the Micarta and [high end steel] Shaman a regular production knife, like the S110V/Blurple ones. Demand is clearly through the roof, and it seems silly to keep a great material and great tool away from people who might find it awesome.
When they first brought the Military and Para 2 out in blurple and S110V you couldn't find them in stock anywhere. Demand always drops after people buy. "Satisfaction is the death of desire". Making them standard production would definitely drop the craze down but I still think at $208 this knife would continue to be a strong seller.
