Our first challenge to overcome was to find out if the original maker still has the tooling and can make the run. We just heard back that they can do it. Now we'll need to see if they can make it in screw construction without needing new tooling.
This maker has not worked with any non Japanese steel, so VG-10 is still the easiest to make it happen. We'll skeletonize the liners to reduce weight. If we can get a color nailed down, I can move.
There is also an exclusive request for an Ayoob and they're waiting to see what we do first. So there could be 2 Ayoob's down the road.
So if we think VG-10, skeletonized liners, screw construction, we need a color for G-10, or any other requests/suggestions for a handle material ???
Wow!! that is fabulous news!! Some handle colors that intrigue me are Burgundy, Gray, Blue-Green, Dark Blue or just deep dark BLACK. I was kind of hoping for something newer than VG-10 in blade steel but the more I think about it that knife is so well designed and so ergonomic that it can do extremely well in VG-10 ( as it has in the past) >> In both SE & PE. VG-10 is one of the very few steels that I've had great luck with in both edge types. Screw construction is also great news.
For those newer fans, new forum members and newcomer knife aficionados this is some of the best news for our community in quite some time. No other company other than Spyderco would have even considered our wishes I'm sure of it.
Hey guys and girls we owe the man a huge "THANK YOU" for hearing us out
OK what is our nest step?? In other words how can we be of help???
