REX 45 is the HAP40 alternative in Golden. All of your suggestions are from Seki where they use HAP40
Thank you for that information but I fail to see why it can not be done if the interest is sufficient to warrant a profit for all concerned, after all we just had a cruwear delica recently.
It's not so much that it can't happen, but the odds are incredibly slim. Spyderco doesn't generally import steels, unless we're talking Taichung or the other exceptions to the rule, the discontinued K390 P4 G10 and the upcoming Seki K390 line. A dealer might be able to comission a Rex45 Seki model, but I wouldn't hold my breath, especially with the massive amount of Rex45 sprints coming out in the first quarter of this year.
As you said, with enough interest, it might happen, but a dealer would need to see the interest and have a desire to comission a run.
Some of my favorite models are made in Seki, and one of my favorite steels is Rex45. I would love to see Rex45 added to the regular lineup, whether it's in Seki or Golden.
