Not that I'm not a fan of obscure and creative strategies, but I don't think that the conniver's kunai is a useful knife. Sorry Naruto fans.

Getting behind the opponent's lines is kind of a big part of being a spy. 60 Health means you can't do that as quickly or consistently. Granted, increased HP is kind of cool, especially if you have the enforcer. People can get confused when you don't die from them sneezing at you. But a lot of "playing it safe" is involved in getting to that point. Oftentimes the health from a backstab won't bring you enough above the par of 125 to make the increased effort of stalking worth it. And even with groupspawn, massive chainstabs aren't common enough to warrant the use of an HP stacking item. By that time, you're probably hitting diminishing returns anyway, because there might not be very many people left to shoot.

I know this is an oversimplification, but there's too much risk for too little reward.
Low hp spy is more frustrating than fun anyway.
