SP166P: C166P Equilibrium
The Equilibrium takes the highly refined symmetrical design of the popular Balance folding knife and scales it up to offer a full four-fingered grip. Like the Balance, the Equilibrium was designed by renowned knifemaker Ed Schempp. And, like its inspiration, it packs impressive cutting performance into a remarkably compact package.

The Equilibrium features a satin-finished stainless steel handle that forms the foundation for its Reeve Integral Lock (R.I.L.) mechanism—a robust, reliable lock built into the reverse-side handle scale. A four-position pocket clip allows the knife to be conveniently carried on either side of the body in either the tip-up or tip-down position. Its compact size also makes it a practical and stylish money clip when carried inside the pocket.

The blade of the Equilibrium is precision machined from VG10 stainless steel. Its perfectly straight cutting edge is supported by full-flat-ground bevels to create a highly functional wharncliffe profile. A pronounced choil (scallop) in the heel of the blade provides a solid index finger purchase and, together with the contoured handle, offers a comfortable and secure four-fingered grip. The choil also places the blade’s edge in line with the knuckles of the hand to offer impressive cutting power for its size.

Spyderco's Trademark Round Hole completes the package to support both easy one-handed opening and fingernail-friendly two-handed opening. Whichever method you prefer, we're confident you'll find the Equilibrium to be one of the most convenient, compact and capable folding knives you've ever used.

Nice EDC
I love this knife!! The blade is just under 2 inches but the way the knife is designed it gives you amazing control of the blade against what your cutting. Great for EDC tasks like cutting open packages or cutting zip ties or mail. Rock solid build quality from Sekai City. Great knife for what it's designed for.

Cons: Handle Feel, Lock Ease of Use
Good little knife
Just tried one of these, not bad of a knife however the handle could use a bit of help it had a few sharp edges and the lanyard hole thing stuck up and was sharp too....but one great thing is how light it is,for an all stainless knife it's surprising. Overall if you need a small knife go for it,but it's only a 89% use knife as I found myself reaching for something else most times (oddly enough that was my Spyderco Dragonfly)
