Joining forces with German knifemaker Peter Herbst, this was Spyderco's inaugural European custom collaboration. Peter is recognized for fusing high tech materials together with Old World craftsmanship. The C53 is embellished with geometric channels cut into the aluminum handle.

It features a linerlock with an eccentric pivot pin and offset arc ramp. This allows the knife to self-adjust the linerlock's position as it wears over time. The C53's design exposes a small section of serrations along the bottom-front end of the handle. These tiny teeth serve as a sure-grip resting spot for the forefinger while grasping the knife. Positioned for tip-down carry, a stainless steel clip enables the folder to hunker down comfortably in the pocket. The blade is a drop-point pattern, made of ATS-55 stainless steel with a 3.1 inch (78mm) cutting edge. A stylish combination of European tradition and sleek modernism.
