Spyderco Rock Lobster Liner Lock with Foliage Green G10 Handles
Long awaited folder from Spyderco Knives, the Rock Lobster is in a class by itself. This full size folder has a unique shape blade making it a great tool for anyone using their knife all day. The lack of a sharp tip is an advantage to most users who just use the cutting edge. The build quality is top notch by the same factory in Japan that produced the recent Schempp Folders like the Barong and Khukuri. The green G10 is well made and the steel is VG10 stainless. We have them at www.knifecenter.com
Here is the information from Spyderco:
Who exactly is Jens Anso? He’s a talented Danish industrial designer and an up-and-coming knifemaker shaking up the industry who once said “If you don’t want to make your second knife, don’t make the first.” We’re thankful he’s been drawn to knifemaking because his designs are unique, fun, functional and making noise in the knife world. His Rock Lobster collaboration has a blade shape not defined by traditional knifemaker labels. Part Wharncliffe part knobby nosed, its thick tip eats up hard cuts and offers loads of personality.
Made from VG-10 stainless, it is full-flat ground and available PlainEdged. Handle is foliage green G-10 with enough texture to stop hand-slipping and has a nested LinerLock® with jimping at the lock release. Screw together handle construction allows the knife to be adjusted and easily cleaned. Tip-up/down right hand pocket clip.
