Spyderco C167GP Friction Folder 2.84" VG10 Plain Blade, G10 Handles, Leather Pouch
SP167GP: C167GP Friction Folder
Filip De Leeuw is a talented Belgian knifemaker whose specialties include high-tech expressions of traditional non-locking folding knives. Spyderco’s Friction Folder is based on one of De Leeuw’s most popular designs and broadens the scope of our folder mechanisms. Its flat-ground VG-10 stainless steel blade features an integral lever that extends from the tang. Pressure on the lever rotates the blade into the open position where it rests against the stop pin. Gripping the contoured G-10 handle holds the lever firmly in place and stabilizes it during cutting chores. The handle is adorned with a series of inlaid mosaic pins and has no clip. Instead, the knife carries in a handsome open-top leather pouch with a pocket clip.
