0350 has overly aggressive jimping that literally tears holes in your pocket. Sometimes I think designers just draw up what looks cool with little regard for carryability. Once the jimping is rounded off the blade it's much better.

CS American Lawman and Recon 1 with an option for no dlc blade finish. With xhp blades, there s no need for corrosion protection.

That and the Delica 4 pocket clip black coating baffle me. I understand the need for coated blades and hardware, but why not offer them without the coating as well? Especially because it looks like it would be one less manufacturing step.

Not everybody is a special operator who needs to conceal the glare of their blades during night combat.

I would like popular 3"-4" knives to be available in 4"-5". A 4 1/2" Spyderco Native? I'll buy one.

More low ride clips.

Spyderco dragonfly g10 proportionally increased in size to 6.5"

Spyderco PM2 proportionally decreased in size to 7"

Spyderco Techno relief cut out in scale for spydie hole redesigned. Although aesthetically I think it's beautifully designed I find it too small and sharply pointed edged for winter when my thumb painfully splits. Also offered with presentation scale options like CF (like Knife Art version of CRK small Insingo) and options for backspacers. NOT a fan of that blue and in the cold of winter that full TI knife can be a heavy lump of cold metal in the pocket.

XM-18 with bronze washers instead of teflon. I'd also be interested to see what the 3" looks like with sheep's foot blade shape like my BM mini grip 555 or a CRK small Insingo.

I would like :

- Benchmade to cease and desist with the blue and black G10 on their limited editions. Enough already.
- ZT to make non-flippers. Lots of them.
- More beautiful 710 Gold Class.
- Spyderco to keep up the excellent work.

ZT 0456 with 3.5" (or longer) blade...if it gains a couple ounces, so be it - it would be worth it.
ZT 0095 with deep carry clip...and a thumbstud.
ZT 0200 with S35vn or CTS-204p
ZT 0770 CPM-M4 with 3.5" (or longer) uncoated blade

I'd be up for an Opinel in XHP, as well.

Knives with blades 4 inches and shorter should be made from M390. Knives with blades longer than 4 inches should be made from CPM 3V.

The thumb stud on the Sebenza has to go. I like the look of it, but a thumb stud that tapers to a point? Zero ergonomics there. I would switch to a thumb stud like on my Rockstead Higo, or the Spartan Blades Akribis.

I love titanium framelock knives. I love flippers. Even so, I would like to see some more variety in knife designs. Almost every new knife company I see people talking about is making the same thing...titanium framelock flippers.

I wish CS would change the name of the broken skull and omit the logo so that I might feel more comfortable purchasing one.
