How about GB 2 sprints?

    I got my GB 2 a couple months ago and it's been in my pocket non-stop. The handle shape, size, weight and grind make it an awesome edc for me and I could see having multiples in different steels.

    Who's with me!?

    I'd be in for one in something more stainless... I don't carry mine much in the summer because I sweat something crazy.

    Maybe something on the tougher side of stainless? I've heard Elmax is supposed to be good for that? CPM154? Or I think Mr. Bradley likes PSF27, as on the Bradley Bowie and Junction?

    Good idea. I like the knife except the M4. Happy to take S30V anyday for my use.

    I’d like a stainless option to pair with the original m4 version. The GB2 is a greatly underrated knife in my opinion. Probably just because it’s a liner lock.

    It certainly is a fantastic design. I’d buy one in different steels for sure.

    Polished micarta scales in different colors.

    If we're going to dream let's swing for the fence: Vanadis 4 extra with titanium liners, steel lockbar insert and dichrolam scales.

    I'm all for a GB2 Sprint with M390/CPM 20CV/CTS 204P...or whatever is the stainless steel de jour...BUT...

    ...what I really want is an evolution, called it the GB3: a GB2 with compression lock, finger choil like the PM2, and whatever stainless steel de jour.

    This is a great idea, the GB2 is a great workhorse and I’m in for a stainless version

    I think I wouldn't mind just seeing it in a different color or full-ti version. Maybe slap it into an LW frame? I love M4, but stainless has a nice place too.

    I have a hard time getting behind M390/20cv sprints at the moment. Not because there's anything wrong with them it's just that there are a ton of them right now. I think I would be more happy with a tougher stainless, or a salt version in LC200N which would be quite tough as well.

    Great ideas here!

    I just got the manix in cruwear and am enjoying that so far so that would be a nice one...or 3v, zdp...

    Seeing a compression lock sounds good too!

    Love the idea of titanium liners too

    Compression lock - yep! Vanax steel... I sell a good deal of my collection to see this.

    The GB should be the platform to show off Spyderco’s latest steels. The scales would be different either in material and/or finish for each steel.

    At the same price point, I would be in on a stainless GB2. Elmax would be first choice, followed by XHP and then cpm154,PSF27...etc.

    I like liner locks so please don't mess with the design. XHP is my first choice followed by Cru-Wear. This knife deserves some nice looking scales. There are plenty of choices. I like the Raffir Noble scales on the Chaparral.

    A GB 3 with a compression lock and a good stainless steel (Elmax, XHP, M390, etc.) would be AMAZING!
