A lot of folks don't like sharpening stuff like S110V. A lot of people prefer stainless to carbon steels. Picking something like 51200 or Maxamet for an initial run of a knife could put a large portion of the customer base off the model.
I know the K390 in the Police 4 kept me from buying one initially, because having it in my pocket this time of year is causing rust to build up on the blade. So I'm really looking forward to a VG10 P4 with liners that are less exposed to corrosive elements.
I'm glad I ended up buying the K390 Police but it sucks having a $200 pocket knife that is only practical to carry half the year due to my hot climate.

Fair criticism? Or am I being impatient about not being about to get those knives that have caught my attention?
