    With all the lightweight Para's coming out. It would be nice to see Spyderco also take the opposite direction and make a Titanium Para2/3.

    I predict more manufactured scarcity of sprints and exclusives which I will boycott on principle.

    @BuMs, this one is awesome!
    If executed well, it would Be a must buy. (if it goes, I hope it’s not a sprint—lol!)

    Hi Maugust,

    Spyderco licenses some custom makers to use our trademarked Round Hole. It also gives us an opportunity to see their designs.

    When we do a collaboration design with a custom maker, we usually work together to get the best design.

    Thanks for your reply Sal,
    I was not aware of that. I hope in the future you will create a knife with Poltergeist :)

    I don't have any predictions but my wish is for a Para 3 LW in a steel that gives me an excuse to pick one up. Perhaps an LC200N Salt version while I'm wishing.

    I agree about the latter 5000x over.

    Ok how about:

    Automatic PM2
    CTS-XHP becoming the new "standard" steel instead of CPM-S30V
    An OTF prototype?
    More micarta, especially non-sprint options

    All I want is something in Vanax Superclean. I don't care what.

    Full titanium para 3 would be ridiculous. I’d own several

    I would like to see a lightweight Lil’ Native with the compression lock. I think there was a post where Sal said Eric was working on one.

    I don't have a problem with it, it just doesn't compel me to rush out and buy the Para 3 LW. Honestly I've always been a Manix guy over the Paramilitary series anyway. I've owned a PM2 but always preferred the Manix. When the Para 3 came out with much fanfare, I personally liking larger knives anyway wasn't much interested in a smaller version. However when the lightweight Para 3 came out it piqued my interest. A few years ago that would have been enough reason for me to pick it up, but these days I try to limit my purchases and a knife needs to fit a certain place in my collection (admittedly in my own twisted logic ;)) to push me over the edge.

    Damasteel. Also, sprint run Lum fixed Tanto in polished black micarta and CPM154 to match the Darn Dao.
