The FB07 was a custom design collaboration with Phil Wilson that hasn't been produced. The design has been discussed on the Spyderco forums in 2003, where Sal Glesser mentioned [1] that the design was in development. However, in a different forum discussion in 2014, he states that the project was abandoned due to a variety of reasons[2]. the design hasn't been made in production and it is not sure if it ever will see production.
