I prefer more 3.75- 4 inch blades. If I am going to spend over $125, I want a decent sized knife, not an apple cutter.

I'd also like to see a black coated Dragonfly H1 SE.

same! this is one of mine. also a dragonfly in solid hap40, solid superblue, and s30v. I also want to see the Native LW and G10 in Cruwear and 52100. And all the major Golden Made folders in 3V and 4V with some new scale colors like semi-translucent charcoal or semir-translucent forest green or something. And LC200N PE salts for all the Golden models and H1 SE Salts for all the golden models! Semi Translucent Day Glow Yellow G10 for the salts that arent in FRN.

So this thread is revived? After seeing the prototype, I have to say that Military with the tip-up configuration as done by @BOOMER52 is what's missing from the Spyderco production. I mean, I am fine with the current tip-down setup but the Boomer52 modification is taking it to a new level.

There is something questionable about the obsession with tip up carry. Blinded to the logic of the tip down only Military design. Dismissive due to one's own obsession.
There are so many similar models with multi position clips including the Police 4 which is arguably the Military 2. However relentlessly demanding a complete revamp of the venerable Military.

A Dragonfly 2 with thicker g10 scales. Think thick like a Meerkat. Also a handle shape that is wider, top to bottom, to fill the hand better. Make the blade out of M4 steel and the g10 a nice blue color.

Ohhhhhh, a Meerkat with blue g10 handle scales and a M4 blade. I like that idea even better.

A blending of the St. Nick's and Bento Box Para 3: satin M390 blade with Red handles and black hardware, including a factory-installed black Lynch Para 3-specific clip.

A Street Beat sprint would be so awesome. I have hope now that they did the PPT sprint.

I waffled for years on getting one of the micarta Street Beats because I didn't want to pay that much for VG10, and the Boltaron sheath was pretty meh. Sure regret not getting one now, though.

They're still out there. I got mine just shy of a year ago on the exchange, and a few months ago a member who saw my old WTB messaged me asking if I wanted to buy theirs.

Compression lock/button release knife with marbled carbon fiber scales and a thin, 3-inch blade. While I'm at it, a front flipper.

That's not going to happen. Slightly more realistically, I'd like a mini-SpydieChef or a mini-Kapara – with a 3-inch blade.

That probably won't happen either. So how about a LW version of the Sage 5?

A Brian Tighe collaboration that's less expensive and not so big. A medium Tighe rod version would be cool.
