Those are some lovely propositions, but I think a majority would really, really love a Slysz Bowie 2.

Kindly please, sir Sal?

I don't have a link to the thread but Sal has mentioned that Gayle Bradley is working on a 3" version of his folder. Not sure about the Swayback.

Whoa, this is great! I love the GB2 to death but the size and weak detent doesn't make it ideal for a daily carry for me. A smaller one with improved detents would be an instant buy for me.

A slysz bowie 2 with the swayback's hidden lock insert would be very compelling....

I would love a 3” or less SwayBack, a slip joint and clipless would be the icing on the cake!

3" blades are my preference. So I'm always on board for those. But I have to say that I have no issues with the longer blades of the GB2 & Swayback. I was a little disappointed when I learned the Swayback would have a 3.5" blade. Now that I have one I like it much more than I thought I would.
Of all the things I've lost I miss my mind the most!

I think both of those ideas are great, the Swayback looks like a sweet little piece.

Fingers still crossed for the Slysz Rat, but that Mouse flipper looks dope.

Definitely down for the next GB.
