In terms of what I would consider to be the most awesome thing Spyderco could ever release, it would be a beefed up Delica. Delica is the perfect edc knife IMO... so just make whats already great, better.
Whether it gets the sebenza treatment with Ti, pivot bushings and a framelock OR the Para 2 treatment with g10/CF, pivot bushings, and a compression lock... I would definitely be buying a couple.
(I'm not a big damascus guy though...)
I'm also on the fence about titanium as a handle material. The best testimony I have in it's favor is no one complains about it. Sage2 seems to be a knife that no one has complained about. Scratches are my concern. My Sage4 bolster is getting scratched very easily but that's ok. That is an EDC knife for me that normal wear and tear scratches don't bother me. They seem to add to the character of the knife. I want the next Chaparral in a bad way and am wondering about the scratches on that handle. It starts out beautiful instead of plain so I may not want scratches at all. If that's the case I wouldn't want the knife. It will be a EDC knife. If it gets scratched and it shows character (so to speak) I'll love it. I don't want any display knives, only knives I want to use. Anyway, the damascus was my question but as usual I got sidetracked.
MY CURRENT (90% of the time) EDC
D'Arbonne #53: Handmade knife by forum member. CPM-M4 blade, textured G-10 scales
Sage4: Now with kirinite lava-flow scales, stonewashed blade and bolsters
Manbug (G-10): Now with kirinite desert-camo scales, ZDP-189 blade ground to a Jester like shape. Stonewashed blade and bolsters
Fenix LD01: (single AAA flashlight) clips to Manbug FOB
Over the last five years or so, I began to notice, no matter how much I liked other knives, the one in my pocket had a wire clip. I was even passing on knives that had "features" I "thought" I cared about more (locks, steels, scales etc) to carry one that had a deep carry wire clip. (that realization was a cross between an "ah ha!" moment and saying to myself "seriously? I care THAT much about it?") Well, whatever, it is what it is.
So I started replacing non wire clips with wires on those few knives I really like but didn't come that way OEM.
For quite a while, my two most carried were ones that I'd modded.... GB and Phoenix. Then I swapped out the Phoenix as an EDC for a Caly 3.5 SB which came with one stock.
I can't say at this point if the Techno will knock either out of my pocket. Honestly, I have my doubts. But it could. We'll see. It'll have to be one heck of a knife to do it.
As always, YMMV and all that.
