I've heard Spyderco Slysz Bowies are getting a second chance at life with a relaunch, does anyone have info on this, or is it pure conjecture?
I like my Swayback MUCH more than the Slysz Bowie's I've owned.the man is one of my favorite knife designers, Polish (represent!), unpronounceable name (to the Anglo-American tongue at least) -- what isn't to love?!
I am not really so motivated to purchase the sway, but the Techno 2 is making a comeback on my knives-to-fondle wish list (never seriously thought it would work for me, but alas I've come around)
I'd be ridiculously happy to get a chance at one of his bowies, especially with a reasonable price tag
not holding my breath tho
Lol be funny if they did. Piss off all the suckers paying upwards of $600 one.

Oh, don't get me wrong, I do love the Bowie, but the Swayback is my favorite knife in a long time.I wholeheartedly agree - I never understood the obsession with the bowie. Seeing members here pay over double the original price for another rather boring gray ti handled production knife blows my mind.
I do not think spyderco will do it. It would discourage collecting of their knives. If a person has a knife that becomes valuable and is no longer made, the company suddenly making more will devalue their knife. That person is not likely to continue collecting that brands knife. Collectors expect their knives values will rise. I expect that Spyderco will let those with a Bowie be rewarded. I am sure the Bowie’s reputation also boosted sales on the Swayback.
