    Thanks for the reply. I did not realize that both trace back to a Titan RIL's, G-10 scale, Carson style flipper model. When I saw the prototype picture it just reminded me of the other knife. I believe the Rick had a "spanto" blade which is a combination of spear and tanto. His latest generation now has a "slicer" grind as well which is meant to appeal to the customers that want more than just the thick blade. This style knife seems to be very popular and I am sure Spyderco will bring some innovative steels and features to it. I look forward to everything you guys come out with. Thanks again for the information and the reply.
    I don't really see any similarity to the XM. I mean it's a framelock and a flipper with Ti and G10, but so are 1000 other folders. Style seems completely different to me, but that's just my opinion. Both are sweet though.

    Yeah, it was. There's a link I'm tempted to share but due to cross posting forums and the pics belong to someone else, I'm going to hold off.

    There is a thread a few notches up with details. I can't wait for this bad boy, it will go great with the ZT 056x!

    That was awesome. That might be the most expensive knife search I've ever done.

    Bro, having own a Sage II, I'm with you on this. The F&F from Taichung is no slouch. When compared to my other spydies from Seki Japan, my Sage II's grind on the edge of the blade is noticeably more consistent. It came sharpest out of the box among my spydies.

    Definitely going to get one of these.

    I might have missed it, but is this a Sprint or regular production piece?

    Regular production, IIRC.

    Good news. Thanks!

    The only thing I think needs a little work is the clip. Not that I wouldn't get it with the clip that is on it now, but I hope it will be Ti and finished like the lock side scale. I think the G-10 insert is a neat touch.

    I just hope that the g-10 lock stop isn't too thin.

    In the end, the collaborators designs must be respected.

    And for my money Spyderco does do better than any other production knife company out there
