This would be my vote as well, but I would like to know what steel would be on the table for discussion.

I like that spyderco is making more small knives, but not thrilled with frame/liner locks. And though I like the look and size of the upcoming McNees enough to overcome my dislike of frame locks, I will pass on the lil chokwe and brouwer. Keep the little knives coming though! Smaller is better :D
Carrying 3 knives is perfectly normal :D

Wonder how much it would cost or difficult it would be to have wire clip grooves in models like the PM2 and PM3 so you can simply choose between stamped or wire instead of relying on 3rd party clip makers. Basically you could use which ever kind you want!

The idea is genius, my "problem" is the aesthetics. I have almost learned to ignore all the redundant clip screw holes, but i seriously doubt i could ignore empty grooves on top of that.. :)

Ok so let me send in my handle and get grooves added or the scale changed for $X dollars

I really just wish we could go back to a possible factory deep carry clip discussion that for the Classic 3 hole design. I know it got put off because they didn’t want to mess with the 3rd party people, however the 3rd party stuff isn’t as readily available and honestly it’s all too expensive. I’d really like a factory option.

I agree, ti clips are nice but I would be happy with a stainless option. Kevin Wilkins makes stainless deep carry clips for BM knives but he won't make them for Spyderco knives because he believes they won't sell well :(

My frustration wasn't supposed to be directed at you just the whole situation. I just wish I had a wire clip option for more blades or at least deep carry without spending $25 per blade

Agreed. I would love to see something like the Benchmade Bugout clip available from Spyderco. Use the same 3-hole pattern spacing just compact, discreet and deep carry.
