Spyderco Viele Phoenix Micarta over Titanium Handle
Spyderco Viele Phoenix Micarta over Titanium Handle
This knife has that “custom” feel to it. It is heavier than most production folders- especially those of this size. The materials are all first rate. Many people like the “ball bearing lock.”
Here is Spyderco‘s take on it:
Where’s Howard? Highly regarded custom knifemakers don’t disappear, they hibernate in their workshops emerging with new designs. In the years since Spyderco has worked with Howard Viele he designed the Phoenix. Incorporating a Spyderco Ball Bearing Lock into his latest project he creates a fluid, modern profile. Titanium handle is jacketed with cream Micarta while a deep finger choil and ricasso flow from tip to clip.
