Spyderco c153GP Des Horn Folder

Recently arrived from Spyderco, we’re proud to offer the incredible new Des Horn Folder! Manufactured from CPM-s30V high-carbon stainless steel and furrowed Micarta handles, the resulting knife is surprisingly lightweight for its size, yet offers robust construction and edge retention.

Designed by South African dentist Des Horn, this awesome knife is his first collaboration with Spyderco. The blade includes elements of both a spear point and Wharncliffe shape, and is hollow ground to a razor sharp edge. The Des Horn Folder sports a Michael Walker Liner Lock and a deep-pocket wire clip for tip-down, right hand carry; yet it’s so light, you hardly even feel it in your pocket! Take a look at www.knifecenter.com-and remember, always brush and floss!

More info from Spyderco:

Knifemakers practice their craft on every continent and in every country on the planet. In Cape Town, South Africa there is Des Horn. A career dentist, Des gained international acclaim as a knifemaker in the 1960s. His debut collaboration intertwines elements of both a Spear-Point and Wharncliffe blade shape, tapering to a super-fine, flat-ground tip. Corrugated furrows machined onto the CPM-S30V blade artistically sweep from the blade to the adjoining black G-10 handle. The handle tapers in a mirrored profile to the blade to create a sleek, spike-like profile and it has a Michael Walker Liner Lock and adjustable pivot and scale screws.
