    I am a forum moron I just found this thread. I do not really have any input to add.

    I just wanted to say I am very happy for you and this sounds like a great venture.

    Update: I'm unable to post photos at Spyderco's request until we are closer to production. for now imagine an 8/8 W&B FBU with notch and a slight smile.

    I'm imagining that with a hole close to the top of the blade at the tang end.

    What my mind's eye is seeing is really nice!

    Pete, you have a very good imagination.

    Okay it's time for me to ask a dumb question. I searched the library but found nothing. So, when you refer to an 8/8 W&B FBU, what does the acronym FBU stand for?

    Compression lock or liner lock??

    Just kidding.

    Congratulations on the collaboration. Sounds like an exciting project!

    BTW, do they have thoughts yet on where it will be produced? Those not familiar with Spyderco may not have experience with what each factory is capable of and may make snap judgements simply based on the factory branding.....Golden, Taichung, Seki City, etc...… all have differing reputations and skill levels and fit/finish abilities.

    LOL. There is a fellow on the a forum who asked for a lock. I think he wanted to EDC his razor. I don't know where to put the pocket clip either.

    Tentatively, we've discussed Golden CO. I have talked to the factory employees and they already have some ideas about what their objectives will be. On a practical basis, one of the limitations is access to the schedule between all the other blades waiting to get into production.

    Good question. The prototype has both a barber's notch and a thumb notch.
