We can do Baby Horns.

I'd buy one, provided it's as tight and well built as the old ones. How about a Cf? As far as i know no Jess Horn has been made to date with Cf scales.
(Personally i would prefer some nice ironwood or cocobolo, but i know by now how you feel about wood scales :) )

PLEASE?!?!?!

MY BODY IS READY!!!!

I've been dying to have another BH. Superblue?

Aside from the pinned construction, I wouldn't change a thing. Honestly, it's such an awesome knife, I wouldn't care if it was pinned like it is now. I just want a fancy shmancy steel.

If we were going to go crazy on it, we could do a full Salt LC200N like the Caribbean! ;)

Either way, you're the man sal!

I'll see what I can do on the models.

The Rock Lobster ended up being very expensive, even back when we made it, so sales were very slow and we ended up closing it out.

sal
Thats a shame about the Lobster. I remember the hype behind it when it was first released. I bought one of the first runs and fell in love immediately. I read the ergos didn’t jive with most folks and that they didn’t like the price for VG-10.

I’ll be hanging on to this one. IMO, it’s one of the best executed productions of a custom design. It captures the maker/artist’s vision and puts it in a affordable user format.

That is a nice knife. That's what we need a sprint of, in black too. How long is the blade?

I'd love a medium Wayne Goddard in FRN. I know it won't happen, but large and small Wegners in back lock would be excellent users.
- best wishes, Jazz.

Just curious, can a dealer do exclusives on any model past and present? Like the embassy and dodo that got redone?

As I understand there is only capacity to run certain old models and all exclusives are negotiated between Spyderco and the vendor or distributor. I.e. you can't just expect to get any configuration even if you/ dealer/ distributor have the funds.

There are probably lots more details, but that's the overview.
