IMO, that would be pretty interesting to have a couple of thin slabs of (rounded corner) Super Blue to make a handle. I'd love to see pictures of that after people start using them.

I guess we could use whatever is super cheap that stains, maybe 1095, just to give it something interesting.
Brass or bronze would also make for unique handle slabs

A Cruwear Micarta Shaman sounds like a dream come true. An orange one will be very tempting too.

I have a few reasons to say that, but they are all kind of related. It's basically about availability at more than one retailer.

For veterans, it's usually more economical to purchase direct from the SFO, especially since shipping is free for orders >$150.

Those who don't have access to exclusives, like people overseas, can get a chance at sprints.

Sprints will pop up at most regular retailers, so anyone who prefers one retailer over another can shop where they like to when a special model piques their interest.

Thanks for clarifying. I was aware of your reasons, but didn't know if it was something personally you had problems with.

You're welcome, and thanks for asking.
Fortunately, I have no beef with any Spyderco dealers. I guess I just don't like monopolies on cool knife configurations.

Like most of what we do at Spyderco, there is a great deal that goes on behind the curtain. Research, testing, study, strategic planning, etc. LC200N is custom made for us and we have a great deal being made in a variety of thicknesses. We tested with a few models, then a larger run with the Caribbean, and there is much more in-the-works. (kitchen knives, Swick 5 warnie, etc.)

Having missed out on the earlier versions, a new Swick is something I'd buy multiples of!
