Not sure how hard or costly it is to achieve a finish on such as the Slysz Bowie but know if they replicate this on the SpydieChef I'd be all over it. That goes for a Para 2, a Para 3, Manix 2, and many other models. Also love CTS-XHP!
Is Spyderco not sitting back and aching watching the Slysz Bowie for for nearly $200 more on the secondary market per knife? How much money are they LOOSING by NOT releasing a second run of these?! Even if they bump it to $450 retail and change nothing else, it is a total win for everyone (well maybe not for the customer unless around $355 for something). It seems these are even more in demand now than ever and why Spydero is not jumping on this like yesterday is beyond me. If I was head of projects, production, and execution, best believe there'd be Slysz Bowies hitting the shelves online and store by April of this year.
I myself wouldn't mind paying $450 for one but for gosh sakes, Spyderco, if you make this dream come true please, PLEASE, do not go the route of the Techno with Techno 2 and redesigned it. The Slysz is as perfect as can be. Unless of course you install a flat spot above the spydiehole, pop in a replaceable lockbar insert, and offer half-serrated versions too. But keep everything else the same.
Maybe one day this dream will come true.....
