For every Rock Star knifemaker you see and hear about regularly, there's another quietly perfecting his/her craft producing innovative high-grade blades.  Tim Zowada is one of the quiet perfectionists.

An American custom bladesmith, he has intensity for detail in everything he touches.  Precise craftsmanship isn't left to fate, to the whim of steel suppliers or a happy mistake.  His meticulous approach to knifemaking leads him to forge spectacular Damascus for his own knives as well as other custom and production knifemakers. He also has a devoted following of bearded folks tracking him down for his coveted hair popping straight razors.  

Spyderco collaborated initially with Zowada in the 1990s.  Our newest collaborative folder is a Sprint Run (limited quantities) reviving the original C56 Spyderco/Zowada CLIPIT with a new handle. 

The C56CF coffin shaped carbon fiber handle has full-dual steel internal liners and a Michael Walker LinerLock®.  Designed with spacers versus slab construction, the handle is open for ease in cleaning and less weight.  Its spear-point blade is hollow-ground VG-10.  A swedge-grind on the spine further lessens weight while accentuating the spear-point's clean profile.  A black steel clip with gold bug embellishment positions the folder for tip-down, right-handed carry.
