    Senor Glesser...

    may I trouble you with a question? What are your thoughts on either the Dfly or Manbug hawkbill in H1? I have floated it out there a few times and I know others have too. Is this something you and Eric think would work? The H1 Dfly would be THE Hawkbill to have, in SE of course, because it is small HAS A CLIP but can be a keychain blade if needed. I use my Ladybug HB SE H1 all the time and hard. Actually it works so well I should not ask for more, but the clip would push the Dfly to a new level IMHO. Thanks for everything Sal and Eric and Merry Christmas to the Glessers.

    I second this question.

    I don't know if you'll get an answer tonight, looks like Sal's offline.

    I have been saying this for years. I even made a prototype! I would do it differently now but the D'fly hawk would be swell.

    I think a D'fly H1 Hawkbill would be the perfect companion on my fishing trips. Just the right size for unobtrusive carry yet large enough for wet hands to get a grip. Now if they substituted the yellow for me with Lime Green it would be a match made in heaven.
    You can't display a toad in a fine restaurant like this! Why, the good folks here would go right off the feed!

    I'll bring it up in the product meeting. Wouldn't be a problem to make. There are some capacity issues so it might take longer to get it in the line.

    Sal, did I mention the way you communicate with this community of spydie lovers,
    is productive, positive and not to mention heart warming.

    Someone who really listens and gives the right feedback at the right time...

    If only more companies and CEO's could be like that.

    oh, and yes on the serrated hawkbill dragonfly,
    the little salty dragon is already my go to work knife, permanently clipped to my scrubs.
    a hawkbill could be even better...

    ^ this exactly. It's not an accident that certain companies end up with extremely loyal customers.

    And speaking of getting everything we ask for have you checked Sals update to the new salt knife thread?

    I too would expect the blade to handle ratio to be closer.

    That would be very fun . I'm personally ecstatic for the Ladybug Salt Hawkbill PE as well.

    I would pick up any of the iterations mentioned in this thread. Love my H1 Ladybug Hawkbill.
    Don't mess with the Spyder because you think you're fly.
    Transcend the illusion.
