Spyderco C143GP Large Lum Chinese Folding Knife
The next really good thing from Spyderco is the new Large Lum model. This is also a big, beautiful, leaf shaped, flat-ground blade. What it also features is the unique profile of the style of the late Bob Lum. The handles are G10, and big enough to give you control over a blade this big.
Here is more info from Spyderco Knives:
Bob Lum did something no one else has. He created a genesis, fusing a traditional Chinese fixed blade and its ancient essence with features found in modern folding knives resulting in a knife that stuns with historical beauty and cuts with modern impeccability. The large Chinese Folder has a flat-ground VG-10 blade. The handle is black peel-ply G-10 with a Walker LinerLock and 4-way tip-up/tip-down, left-right-hand pocket clip. Tradition turned into an ergonomic folder.
