Here's a few of mine:
Spyderco came out with a lot of LW models last year such as the PM3, Sage, and Police. This year it's gonna be followed up with the "Military LW" except the wire clip will finally offer a tip up option.
Native Chief will get a steel upgrade. I don't think it will be the LC200N people been asking for due to the release of the Siren in those materials. I'm thinking S35VN or MAYBE the new S45VN?
Shaman in Maxamet...And it will instantly sell out.
Knives I\d like to see...
A knife with the same mechanism as a Smock, but a tacticool blade.
What about you guys?
Maybe have a look at this VERY recent thread for some answers: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=85629
Concerning "Millie LW": I don´t think so, since Sal already was talking about a Military 2 featuring a comp. lock. I am pretty sure this will come first, and then maybe a lightweight version of this model later (though the Millie is rather lightweight anyway, being linerless for the most part already. Still there could be an FRN more budget version some day?)
Right, PM2 LW is a whole different story than Millie LW!!cbrstar wrote: ↑Sat Dec 28, 2019 4:37 pmI saw that thread yesterday but seemed like no one was posting on it
PM2 LW does make a lot of sense considering the popularity of the PM3 LW. Hopefully they won't completely cheap out and add another bronze washer this time.
I don´t think that a time frame was stated (I would be very interested to know one either). Good thing is, at least it sounded quite definite that the eventually the whole Endura family will come in K390.
Despite the name, the lightweight models have shown not to be about weight but cost saving measures to get something out with MAP price at what the G10 models were a few years ago. I agree a LW Military wouldn't save much if any weight, but I don't think that isn't the point of that type, considering how many don't actually reduce weight any significant amount.Evil D wrote: ↑Sun Dec 29, 2019 9:55 amI'm not sure a Military LW makes sense apart from just changing the texture of the scales. The Military already has pretty minimal liners and I can't imagine G10 weighs so much more than FRN that changing the scale material will reduce weight enough to matter. Maybe if they completely eliminate the non lock bar side liner and switched to a wire clip that might drop a little weight but it won't be much. As much as I love the Military I think if this were going to happen it would have by now, and I think it'll be more likely in the future with the Military 2 if/when it finally happens.
