Technical Specs

Howard Viele has been a leading member of the Knifemaker's Guild since 1976. His designs are visually identifiable and carry his personal stamp: tactical, modern, gentlemanly and tapered. The Spyderco/Viele wears this signature appearance embodying flowing lines and a high-tech tone. Its VG-10 blade is hollow-ground to further enhance the folder's overall tapered look.

Marking it as a Viele design is his signature logo of three small parallel holes and a circular symbol which represent the Japanse God of War. Positioned to maintain the intergrity of the blade's sleek shape, the Spyderco Trademark Round Hole is somewhat smaller than normally found on Spyderco knives. Texturing along the blade's spine is designed to grip the thumb's pad keeping it in contact with the top of the blade for added responsiveness and control over the cutting edge. An all-stainless handle is blanketed on the back by a scale of black woven G-10 and the handle's front scale is partly superimposed with a tile of black Micarta. The Micarta tile cuves downward near the blade giving the inpression of a bolster. An open spine with spacers lessens bulkiness and weight and facilitates cleaning and drying the knife's inner workings. Its black steel clothing clip carries tip-down.  DISCONTINUED.
