This is a knife I would love to own
. At least half my cutting jobs are done with a folding utility knife. Most folding utility knives "waste" a lot of blade by hiding it within the retention mechanism. The rough sketch above attempts to illustrate a ute knife that uses more of the middle of the replaceable blade, not just the tip.
Most folding utes have unpleasant or non-intuitive locks, such as the widely used Milwaukee, which makes you push a button just to get the blade open, making it either a two-handed affair, or a series of gravity assisted maneuvers if with one hand. It has no closing bias, just swings freely.
Most folding utes have sloppy, rattle-y blade retention mechanisms. There must be a way to clamp the replaceable blade securely, but the folks who make folding utes are NOT the major knife companies, they apparently don't have experience with what informed knife users want (maximum available edge, comfy choil, blade that doesn't wiggle).
Spyderco could dominate this market with a well-designed folding Ute. Contractors are competitive sorts and they value their knives, but most use folding utes of modest quality because, I think, that's just what's available. I can easily imagine the contractors I work with, buying an upscale ute.
(Another wish is for decent utility knife blades. The blades I've been able to find are either made of SK-2 or SK-5, and neither is a steel to write home about.)
PS: Yeah, I drew the handle too small. I failed art class.
