looks like a carbon fiber millie in 52100 is coming! This is great news
I have a custom in 52100 and it rusts if I look at it sideways... For my folder use I prefer steels that don't stain as easily.. I get wet and exposed to seawater a lot though...
Pre ordered 2 through knife center..... im hoping getting in on the first day of pre orders gives me a solid shot lol.http://www.bladehq.com/item--Spyderco-Military-Sprint-Run-Knife--33039
Set your bookmarks / wishlists accordingly.
This one is gonna be sweet
I've read a few times that 52100 is difficult to work with in a production setting. Difficult=more time=more cost for them and ultimately more cost for us.I was excited until I saw the price. Aside from titanium models it looks like it'll be one of the most expensive military sprint runs I've seen. Hopefully the carbon fiber isnt peel ply for that price...
I definitely understand that everyone has their own taste, and can appreciate that. But personally, I am not a fan of the CF "skin" over G-10 that Spyderco uses. Of course, I have become a CF junkie and like the real thing better. Just curious, why do you like the CF/ G-10 better?I wish it was something like the CF on the Gayle Bradley, but I imagine it will be the peel ply. :/

The peel ply carbon fiber does nothing for me except add cost. Oh well, I want the knife and if funds allow I will get it. Carbon fiber military scales should be easy to sell and this knife is begging for some canvas micarta anyway.
