    Blade HQ has an exclusive theme going on right now with tool steel and natural G10.

    They have done some favorites and some oddball releases. All to a near sellout when the blade drops.

    So what's next in the quiver? Let's get some suggestions going for them. Pick the model, and pick the tool steel. That's how we roll.

    I'll start out with something they haven't done yet; fixed.
    • Ronin 2 with CMP Cruwear

    And a folder for runner up.
    • Dodo with M390 Maxamet becasue it's so hot right now.

    M390 isn't a tool steel. It's a high end (super) stainless.

    That being said , I'd like a Yojimbo2 in M390/204P/20CV and marbled CF instead of natural G10.

    And a Military with one of the above steels with a heavy stone wash (like on the Shaman) and orange G10.

    They've all been Golden models, right? I'm guessing a Shaman in M4 could be in there.

    - DLC M4 jade Military.
    - DLC M4 Endura, Delica, Dragonfly. Not sure how easy it would be to put jade g10 on these models. Would be great if they can.

    They've been doing only Golden CO models though, right? Delica is Seki.

    I would throw my wallet at a Shaman in M4 and jade.

    You are right. M4 Endura/Delica/DF would be cost-benefit prohibitive I guess. ZDP-189 FRN Endura is $115 now. Put DLC M4 steel and natural g10 on Endura would perhaps make it $180, which I'm not sure would sell well.

    You won't see a Seki knife with CPM M4. It will be with a Japanese steel, like HAP 40.

    It's not all Golden. The Lum models are Japan.

    The rules are it has to be natural G10 for the signature.

    Well I will make a little steel change there then. Maxamet; so hot right now.

    Natural G10 is part of the signature though. Can't avoid that.

    Besides natural G10, the signature also includes a high speed tool steel blade. BHQ has good taste. I hope this continues.

    Wonder if it will be a PM3 or a Shaman next. Lil Native or native would also be fun.

    I'd buy a Shaman exclusive. I'd also like a Ronin2 and a Lum fixed tanto.
    Any of those in M4, Cruwear, Van4e or 4V, although BHQ has been doing M4 until the Lum folder.

    Before the DLC Manix was announced, I would have bet a Para 3.

    Native with skeletonized liners (not a fan of the new linerless Natives), Lil Native compression lock, lil native backlock, manix backlock, para 3, shaman. all of the with Satin and DLC options. Please use black liners like on the Manix as well for the DLC blade versions (DLC PM2 doesnt have the black liners...ashame). Then bring back the Military but with DLC blade and liners. All jade G10 and M4.

    There have been G10 models of all of those so it could be done, but probably with Hap40 like the Lums. Id be down for all of those with Jade G10 and Hap40! Also a Caly 3 and Worker (maybe woth VG10 for the worker).
