I have a large Wegner, and yes, it is a beautiful knife that feels great in hand. Oddly enough, it’s one of the few knives I own that I’m a bit overly-protective of. I have CRKs that I’ve been less-than-kind to, but for some reason, I protect my Spydie Wegner.
I have a C49 Wegner Jr. and I feel exactly the same way you do, I just flat out don't carry it anymore! I bought it in 1998 I think? I actually lost that knife for around four months, that lost knife is what brought me here looking for another! I had no idea at the time about collaborations and knives being discontinued.......I just lost my beloved knife and thought I'd have to bite the bullet and buy another, I quickly learned........no! So by losing that knife, and around 25 Spyderco's later, that Wegner Jr. has cost me some serious money! Moral to this story, don't lose a knife!
I've mentioned a Wegner sprint here multiple times before, it seems it'll never happen, something to do with Tim Wegner himself?
But if it were to happen......I'll take a large, with a larger opening hole, a modern stainless like M390, XHP, 204P, or 20CV? And I'll be happy with any lock, not the biggest liner lock fan but to keep with the original Wegner design, a liner lock would be fine with me! Plus they sound fantastic when they lock open!
