    Slyz Bowie and any of the Jerry Hossom designed fixed blades! I love my Forester!

    I’d love if they brought back the fluted Ti Native! CQI floating lockbar pin and 20CV would be icing on the cake!

    It would be hard for me to pass on the slyz if they brought it back. +1

    Or keep the g10 but use rust proof hardware and LC200N and it’s be a great hard use salt knife. Basically the Native salt treatment but keeping the g10

    There are a few classic models that really should be in the permanent lineup. I like the idea of a calling it a "retro series" as mentioned above. I think that alone would drive some sales from a marketing perspective.

    Catcherman Salt in PE, SE, and CE FFG LC200N
    Spyderhawk Salt in SE and PE FFG LC200N
    Jester as a LW Salt model with PE and SE H1 or LC200N with glow in the dark FRN scales
    Worker as a LW Salt model with PE, SE, and CE Saber ground LC200N or H1
    Dodo in full SE and PE with CPM-CRUWEAR (tough and easier to sharpen on that curved blade profile) and Grey G10 scales

    Hah, I sold mine for what would now be considered a rare bargain, so we've both made questionable choices ;)
    What did they originally retail for? I though it was $300, but I might be off.

    I think like $299. BHQ at the time was little more expensive but my dealer of choice. This was in 2015.

    I really wish id never sold my street beat. It seems like there is a demand for it through the forums. It often seems like once something goes away, then the demand comes into play.

    I think the vg-10 SB wouldn't do great though. It would need to be something knife nuts are hungrier for; zdp-189, sb, hap40, etc.

    I would also like a pe g10(or synthetic handle) Harpy and a 154/s90 pm2.

    To this day the Street Beat is likely my favourite small city sized fixed blade. I don’t know why but on the side positions inside waistband carry configurations the knife is so comfortable to the point I will actually forget I’m carrying it.

    The liteweight SB is in terms of practicality just as good. (except the micarta version has a better sheath) The Micarta SB is damn near custom knife in quality though and an absolute fixed blade treasure in my collection.

    The Caspian Salt was one of the GOLDEN ERA models that I never got my hands on unfortunately. I would love to see one in LC200N.

    The Titanium, ATS-34 Salsa is truly one I would like to see return. The Ti Salsa was one of the true Titanium Spyderco blades I really liked as well as the Ti ATR.

    The ones you and "Standard78" both suggested are really nice :thumbsup: That TUFF model was one that kind of slipped through the cracks for me. I was undergoing a lot of high dollar medical stuff at that time and wasn't even able to buy a knife for about 14 months. I've said for the past 4 years now that I want one of those TUFF models and if they would do a Sprint Run in a newer/better blade steel then that would be A-OK with me :thumbsup:

    Dude!! I don't know you but I can't help but believe that you and I must be related somehow. Everything on your list is a "HIGH FIVE" and a "SLAM DUNK" and I do have two more I could add to that unbelievably great list you put up. Also everything on your list are models I've loved for years. Now I would also add a C-60 Ayoob with CF scales ( or G-10 if need be) and either a HAP-40 or Cowry X blade. Also I would add an outdoor version of the old but great TEMPERANCE 1 model>> one of the very few Spyderco fixed blades also available in Spyderedge>> and it is a beast in SE too. But I would also want the TEMP 1 in SE & PE both>> and that would be another great Sprint Run for LC200N>> and they could even do a few in combo edge as good as that fixed blade is. It's still my favorite Spyderco fixed blade of all time and I've had 4 of them since 2004 ( 2 SE and 2 PE versions) when they were first released.
    Yeah if you would add those two models to the great list you laid on us then I would even take that list over to the Spyderco.com forum where I also frequent. That list could garner some great support over there I can assure you. The older Spyders brought back in newer/better blade steels could be a marketing gem for Spyderco if they would step out in faith and do it. Thank you for such an excellent list of suggestions Brother :thumbsup::cool:

    If they redo the Tuff I would like to see them fix the lockup issues caused by the overly short lockbar. It was actually the Tuff that first alerted me to the potential problems such a short lockbar can cause on a knife of that size.
