If I ever get my hands on one I will stop collecting. That is my all time grail knife. I would go to war with that knife.

An Ebay listing for a Nirvana just ended at $1650 which is completely insane considering the fact that you could get a Rassenti custom for that much. That being said, the Nirvana is my personal grail Spyderco wouldn't even consider paying over $1k fro the reason just stated.

If I were to make a 2nd version of this knife… Definitely a full flat grind on the blade. Probably about 10% smaller overall. Change the scale pattern to look more like a spiderweb maybe. New S45VN blade steel in a more contrasting finish. Lower price.

It’s crazy that one just sold on eBay for $1650. I really really like this knife, but I would never imagine spending that kind of money on a Spyderco Nirvana. Might as well go for the custom.

Why are you doing this? Why keep putting knives I'll never be able to get? This knife is awesome. Possibly the only spyderco knife I like.
