    Which would they be?

    Mine would be a Spyderco / Zero Tolerance collaboration with the main design & ergos being Spyderco and the "meat & potatoes" (strength, heft, overbuilt tank of a knife) being ZT

    Maybe something like a ZT-ized Military? Or a Spyder-ized 0200?

    (I know Kershaw & Spyderco did the Spyker in the past)

    More Buck and Strider collaborations. I like some of their earlier work.

    I know this is a stretch........Esee and Spyderco. Spyderco's ergos and handle materials and Esee's blade steel, finish, price, and heat treat.

    Emerson and Spyderco. Emerson has some of my favorite knife designs being produced, while Spyderco is aces at using great blade steel, good grinds, solid pricing and solid QC. A CQC-8 with a compression lock, CTS-XHP blade and Spyderco's attention to detail would be a must have for me.

    Give a traditional company's (Buck, Case, etc.) fixed blade designs to Becker/Ka-bar so that we can have a large, full-tang bowie without military inspiration, and without custom prices. Wood handles and a classic design in 1095 steel.

    If friggin Bradley would start making truly ambi knives, I'd buy their stuff as-is, wouldn't need a collaboration to make them better. Their stuff seems great, but it's all RH biased from what I can see.

    Kershaw and Cold steel.
    Cold steel makes the strength, and Kershaw does the looks and F+F.

    If it meant that they would stop using the Spyderhole opener on everything: Spyderco and anybody!
