I’ll assume Japanese models are out, though the Police4 may be a sign of things to come; in which case an FFG Pacific Salt and a Stretch, each in PE and SE LC200N, would be nice.

I’ll assume Taichung’s Sages will remain S30V and Chaps XHP. I’d like a Kapara in LC200N.

Golden models that are not already in LC200N? Sure, why not?

But I’m not hankering for everything to be saltified. LC200N has a wonderful sharpening response, and anyone liking VG10 (I’m one) will like LC200N’s wear-resistance.

Kapara! The food-prep oriented design of the Kapara makes LC200N a natural choice.

This! Add Titanium liners/screw set and a ceramic detent, you have a perfect knife. I’d pay almost Paysan prices for this.

You mean that like in: "LC200N has a sharpening reponse comparable to VG10, but better wear resistance?" THAT would get me interested in LC200N indeed, while I don´t need its degree of corrosion resistance...
Top three going by pocket-time: Endura 4 in VG 10/Micarta-scales; Stretch 1 in VG 10; Endura 4 in HAP 40

I dont have VG10, but LC200N is a great steel to sharpen. It response much better to medium ceramic as S30V and sometimes I feel like I can get nicer edge on LC.

Like it is a perfect steel when you dont need crazy edge retention. Its easy to sharpen, hold a very nice edge, rustproof, fairy tough.
In the pocket: Chaparral FRN, Native Chief, Police 4 K390
On belt: Bow River, Waterway

Want to buy: Manix 2 XL, Swick 5
Waiting for Stretched Stretch :D

I find LC200N’s sharpening response better than VG10, along with its wear-resistance (and corrosion-resistance). However, VG10 is not far behind in any of these categories, IMHO.

I'd be thrilled to have the Catcherman come back in either edge type. It might displace my Pacific Salt, being larger, lighter, having thinner blade stock and a pointier tip. Sounds great!

If this whole rumored Toxic Green LC200N series out of Seki really comes to fruition, I REALLY think they ought to bring back the Catcherman and Spyderhawk, with both models in both PE and SE and the Catcherman with a CE variation as well. I think these would sell well in FFG LC200N. These models need to be permanent fixtures in the lineup.
