Oh I do know for sure that there are about 6 of you here that have told me you want the SE version. And that's cool because I actually want both of them myself.
That's a great point and I'm glad you brought that up "AF" But Sal wanted me to do the POLL and to also help him gather all the pertinent information we can get. That way they'll have a better idea of what percentage of PE vs SE would be ideal.
Oh I think many more people are going to get both the PE & SE. Because when most of the newer guys see how good this blade design is they will ultimately want both the PE & SE. Again it's one of the rare Spyderco models I've had over the years that I like just as much in SE as I do in PE. And there are not very many Spyderco folders I can say that about. But that's just how special this design is.
Well if you ever do cave in and want to give a Spyderedged model a fair trial>> then by all means do it with a C-60 Ayoob. Because when it comes to serrated blades the C-60 Ayoob is in a league all it's own.p_atrick wrote: ↑Sat Oct 10, 2020 2:37 pmI am one of the few, the proud, the plain-edge enthusiasts. Those edges are just more my speed. For whatever reason, I'm just not interested in trying an SE knife (though plenty of you make great points why I should).
Given the results so far, the SE Ayoob is truly a "forum" knife.
That's my next goal: To get the C-60 Ayoob model back into the main line up again. Except to have a spiced up version with a supsersteel blade and maybe a Carbon Fiber handle for starters. and they can also have a "Salt" version as well with LC200N in SE & PE.Evil D wrote: ↑Sat Oct 10, 2020 3:06 pm
It's probably also worth noting that (while you're definitely right) a sprint is only ~1200 pieces, and it's quite possible that most of that will be bought by forum members (and members of other forums) and/or at least knife AFI's as opposed to Johnny Knifebuyer who's just looking for something to cut drywall with. If this were going back into full production for long term I think their business strategy would look a little different.

After the first 10 hours of this poll there are 15 for SE and 3 for PE>> I can't hardly believe that the serrated version is leading by a 5 to 1 margin. That's just mindblowing considering how unpopular serrated blades were when the 2011 Sprint Run of the C-60 emerged.
Again there is a lot more love for the serrated version than I thought there would be. But this is really encouraging and I hope Mr. Glesser and the Spyderco Company thinks so as well.
