A remake or sprint run of the original Paramilitary with the Dino jimping in a stainless like Elmax, XHP, S35V or any steel for that matter. I love my old one and still carry it every week.

1) Garth Bull Shamwari Collaboration
2) A folder (possibly a fixed blade); sub 3-inches cutting edge; with a handle that allows for interchangeable blades; allowing for the purchase of different blade steels; I like the idea of the Homefront, but I feel Spyderco could due a better job and with more interchangeable steel options. Pick a popular design (for example Para3) and allow for the purchase of the different blade steels but only the need to purchase one or two handles. Rather than having sprint runs releasing an entire knife, have a less expensive run of just the blades in different steels.
3) In an ideal world their would be 2-3 handle types (1 with finger choil, 1 without finger choil, possibly one with longer handle or even 3 different locking mechanisms) and then pick your blade steel, but logistics would be difficult.

Also a knife with Nitrobe 77, Vanax SC, and rex 121 steel used.

Dragonfly in the Red G10 / TiCN Hap40 combo from St Nicks Knives! REALLY hope they make this happen. Id probably buy 5 of them and put three away to give to my sons when they are old enough for their first Spydie!

I think the following would make great knives:

1. Dragonfly with bead blasted titanium scales and jimping on choil and thumb

2. Caly 3 in frn
