Spyderco Goddard Jr. White Micarta

In the 1980's Spyderco entered a collaborating arrangement on several knife designs with then, up-and-coming custom knifemaker, Wayne Goddard of Eugene, Oregon.  Wayne's custom knives were folding models and fixed blades with his signature:  a drop point blade, shaped with a deep cutting belly for outdoor and everyday use.  Everyone wanted them, for their high-performance steel and drop point blade shape.   Today, he's a Master Bladesmith, and cornerstone member of the American Bladesmith's Society.  He has authored several books on the art of knifemaking and is a contributing editor for a knife magazine.  When the opportunity to collaborate again arose in 2008, Spyderco was on it. 

The new C18PSWH has Wayne's traditional drop-point blade but comes paired with a white Micarta handle.  The blade is hollow-ground VG-10 steel available in a CombinationEdge.  The handle is shaped so you can securely grip while preventing the fingers from sliding forward or backward.   Ambidextrous clip.
