    Seems to me that s35vn would be an upgrade to vg10 without being extremely expensive, does that sound accurate? And bd30p would be in about this same range price and performance wise(?).

    Of those you mention, I'd get the Manix 2. Blerv is right that it will compete with the PM2, but you can maximize the differences with the new lightweight FRCP version. I just got the translucent...

    Thanks so much for the report. I keep thinking you are done, and you keep uploading more photos. :-)

    I really like the blue Spin. I'm using my etched one as my "wallet" today, money clip style.

    My first thought when I saw this is that it would make a great shadow puppet. :-)

    A little late to the party I guess, but I'd love to see some new Byrd knives. I don't think I can really add anything to the folder comments. I also look forward to a new Finch, and the Meadowlark 2...

    I'd like a Spydie with a semi-wharncliffe blade profile similar to the PPT but with the edge enough below the handle when held to enable use on a cutting board. It would be an all-around camp knife,...

    Another platform that could be interesting for this discussion is the PM2. There's a lot of room between the edge and the barrel of the lanyard hole. It seems like perhaps the edge could be dropped...

    I love my green one (so much in fact I just got a matching Endura). Blue was a close 2nd choice. I do feel like the colors help with the perceptions of non-knife people.

    +1 on the idea of some thinner blade options. Along with the other thread on narrow blades, we could get a Spyderco "Bird and Trout" type knife (folding or fixed).

    I'm with Wdr65 and typically prefer FRN over G10. I have a both an FRN Delica and a Caly 3.5. If the 3.5 had been available in FRN, I almost certainly would have chosen that over G10.

    FRN Meadowlark 2 is a very nice knife and very similar to FFG Delica. The ML2 is just very slightly smaller and has a finger choil. Hard to imagine a better knife for the price.

    Thumbs up on colors. Just bought a green VG-10 Delica, and I really like the shade of green on that knife. I also tend to prefer FRN over G10, which probably makes me odd.

    Great news! My preferences:


    Flat grind (good candidate for something like ZDP-189 IMHO)
    Bolstered with wood :D
    No op on spine
