Spyderco Atlantic Salt Yellow FRN ~ C89YL

It's been speculated the sheepfoot shaped blade originated with mariners who found the rounded tip especially beneficial when the knife was accidentally dropped (think working on a ship in pitching seas) as it couldn't stab the foot when hitting the deck. More info...

Spyderco Small Persian Folder2 by Ed Schempp

Ed Schempp does something few custom knifemakers do; he combines ethnic and indigenous knife styles into highly functional modern folding knives.

A revival of an earlier Persian Folder collaboration, the Spyderco/Schempp Persian2 combines Western with Eastern knife influences by including a classic Persian appearance with modern steels, locking mechanisms and pocket clips.  Historically Persian knives were fixed blades used ceremonially and for everyday living.  

The Persian Folder2 winds its way in a graceful sweeping profile from the tip of its VG-10 flat-ground blade to a curvaceous G-10 handle.  Lighter and thinner than the original Spyderco Persian folder, the Persian Folder2 has skeletonized internal handle liners and a slimmer profile.  The handle's curves act as a series of leveraging hand-holds, positioning a gripped hand in comfort and in control.  

Located mid-spine is a back- lock with the added safety feature of a David Boye Dent.  Where blade and handle join is a finger choil that positions the index finger safely, nearer to the cutting edge for close- in and detailed cutting.  

Completing the handle is a black steel tip-up right-hand positioned pocket clip, embellished with a gold Spyderco logo bug.
