Spyderco Persian Red G-10 Handle
Custom knifemaker Ed Schempp has a gift for comingling geographic and ethnic cutlery styles with twenty-first century knifemaking methods and modern steels. Comprised of graceful sweeping lines, his Persian Folder has red G-10 handle scales capped-off with polished stainless bolsters. Finger indents on the handle's underside situates the hand on the handle in a way that translates into comfort and cutting control.
The Eastern-influenced blade has a full-curved belly, ending in a graceful upswept tip. Made from high-performance VG-10 steel (hollow-ground), a prominent hump above the Spyderco Round Hole creates a leveraging platform welcoming the thumb. Curved to ride in shallow or deep pockets equally well, the steel pocket clip is designed for right-hand, tip-facing-upward pocket carry. Sprint Run Red Persian features a David Boye Dent removed from the back lock's release, inhibiting inadvertent disengagement of the lock while muscling or tightly gripping the handle.
Balance, plus first-class fit and finish, makes this model truly worthy of bearing Ed Schempp's and Spyderco's name.
