A Wayne Goddard (R.I.P.) re-issue
Native with original blade grind.
Calypso with Micarta scales
C22 either re-issue or new scale/steel combo (please don't ruin it with some other lock than the OG one though!
EDIT: And Kopa #18, this time done properly with bolsters and inlay ;)

No, you can still find these at some dealers. I think knifeworks sooner state still have some.

I will second the rookie and the 75 mm Persian.
Sooner state still has the Persian, but a sprint would be awesome. Love that little guy.

Yes please. Add tip up carry mounts and I'll be very very happy.


I should probably throw in a vote for the slych bowie just to tick off the flippers.

C95
Yeah. That would sure be nice. I'd select 3V, Cruwear or 4V in keeping with the toughness with performance theme. For all out performance K390 would be difficult to beat. I can get behind any.

I'd buy at least 1 of any version selected ( even stainless) and if the cards fell right I'd buy an extra or three.

Yeah I'm with you. Keep everything the same except give it a tough steel and maybe a special scale color / material.

I love the Manix XL but the C95 is the beefiest, most impressive lockback I've ever owned.

For me it would be an Ayoob, any steel, any edge! I have a Chinook 3 that I’d gladly give up for an Ayoob!

Here is an easy retro sprint. Only the grind needs changing.

I want a Native Chief with original sabre grind and Swedge. Fraden lock had an excellent hollow ground Manix 2.

All of these. Love your thoughts. That Goddard I am all over.

I'd add a Jester in Carbon Fibre scales and while we are at it how about one in Blue Nishijin scales.
