So, I had a daft thought while stuck in traffic*:
Spyderco do all kinds of dedicated models with charitable focus and output (Pink handles for breast cancer etc).
Spyderco do all kinds of other great things for folks of all kinds and show levels of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) that are humbling.
With that ball rolling- to show a commitment to sustainability and environmentalism: How about a knife made from 100% recycled materials?
It'd definitely by do-able for the handle materials- recycled polymers and aluminium offer some scope there
I'm not sure if anyone offers 100% recycled steel- and if they do, possibly not in a sensible blade steel.
Hardware and fittings are probably a challenge too....
With a goal of demonstrating a minimal environmental impact, I'd love to see what the Golden team could do if they ran with the idea.
Would it be a sprint of a common and popular model like the Delica?
Would it be some new design to maximise the materials available?
I thought it might be called a Spyderco Earth (Naming's the hard bit of knife design, right?

Warhammer 40000 is- basically- Lord Of The Rings on a cocktail of every drug known to man and genuine lunar dust, stuck in a blender with Alien, Mechwarrior, Dune, Starship Troopers, Fahrenheit 451 and Star Wars, bathed in blood, turned up to eleventy billion, set on fire, and catapulted off into space screaming "WAAAGH!" and waving a chainsaw sword- without the happy ending.
