    It just won't happen. Sadly.
    Considering the discontinuation of the military, I think it will take some time till we see another left hand dedicated knife.

    The only thing that prevent me from getting this is the frame lock cutout. It is located just near the wire clip contact. My back pocket will be frayed. If the cutout is machined inside the frame, that will avoide the rubbing against the edge of the cutout. I never EDC my ZT 0801 for this reason. What's your view on this?

    It is the same with the Techno, only snags slightly with a couple of pockets.

    Not sure what your connection/association is with Marcin and Sal, but you seem to be the individual that brought recent Slysz designs to Spyderco...and for that, I thank you profusely Piter!! I haven't found anything even remotely close to knocking the Techno out of my pocket in the roughly 8 mos. I've owned it (it is, IMO simply perfection and has rendered most of my other EDC folders dust collectors), and have been waiting patiently for a Spyderco/SpydeChef collab.

    Now however, with the Slycz Bowie apparently imminent in 2014...this with certainly be my next "size large" Techno

    Thanks for the welcome, Sal!

    Any chance for the Marcin Slysz collaborations to continue into a family of Spyders?
    Techno, Bowie, Chef... Southardy-Flipper? :D

    I like this and will probably get one. But would like it more if the blade were a little thicker, and if they squeezed another half inch of blade length into that handle (which looks eminently do-able).

    When I first saw the K2, I was thinking "man I wish they'd make a smaller version of that" and then I saw the Bowie and thought "that's perfect".

    So does this knife have the same blade thickness as the Techno? I'm one of those that like the thickness of the Techno. Looks pretty thick on the last set of pictures.

    I really like this one. I'll be buying at least one but I'd like to know the actual blade length too. I'd like three inches but under 3.5 will be okay.

    No, not sure, will have to wait for the stats, but it doesn't look to me like the blade goes right to the end of the handle when closed. Also moving the pivot forward by 1/8" gives another 1/4" of potential blade length. It it turns out the that blade lenght is not less that 1" under the handle length, I'd delighted. Blade stock looks like its somewhere between 3.5 - 4 mm to me, which is OK - would have preferred a little thicker.

    This knife is going to be great with this Spyderco Techno. Great knife making in the works.

    I'm digging the thickness of the blade compared to the handle thickness. The thicker the blade on most Spydercos, the thicker the handle slabs.
