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.
