I think you hit the nail directly on the head TBD To make an Ayoob model on the same scale as the Rookie model was to the legendary Police model would be a dream EDC carry IMO.twinboysdad wrote: ↑Sat Dec 14, 2019 10:51 amLil Ayoob. The original was a large knife, and not what edc size really dictates for most now. An Ayoob in Delica/Native size would be a way to put that great design in more hands. The Lil Matriarch is just getting the appropriate appreciation and really evolved into a better knife than the original. I think the same could happen with a more edc friendly Ayoob
With that said I'm still surprised that the Rookie Model never gained any real momentum. I think the Rookie kind of fell victim to the fact that there were so many super-classic Spyderco models when it was introduced that it just couldn't get the numbers it needed.
Another example of that was the C-54 Calypso model>> it was a super awesome design but it was also overshadowed with at least 6 to 8 super selling models when it came out.
But an Ayoob model on the same or similar scale as the Rookie model would just be really cool.
