AI16514: Bubinga Wood Castor 3-1/8"
The Castor knife is a folding everyday carry slipjoint in a typical Spanish style. The carbon steel leaf shaped blade is full flat ground, reminiscent of many Spydercos, which makes it a superb slicer. The handles are beautiful Bubinga wood, functionally designed, and contoured for an excellent fit in the hand. Available in three sizes, each knife is designed exactly the same - very lightweight, durable, ergonomic, and sharp.
  • Blade Length: 3-1/8" (80 mm)
  • Overall Length: 6-7/8" (175 mm)
  • Handle Material: Bubinga Wood
  • Weight: 2.3 oz.
  • Made in Spain

Aitor Castor
I love the knives because they are different and aesthetically beautiful. They are inexpensive, so their cost/benefit ratio is high--a lot of knife for the money. I re-profiled and sharpened the blade, and that was harder than I expected, but in the end, it came out okay. I got it sharp, but I couldn't get it scary sharp. I'll try again later, but I don't know. I have never tested the edge holding, bt they will slice paper well enough to impress the uninitiated. The knives are crazy hard to open. Wet fingers or weak hands, forget it, it says closed. But the aesthetics and overall appeal of the knife were good enough for me to buy all three sizes. They are cool knives. I'll probably never "use" them for the above reasons, but I'm glad I got them. The "3" rating is because of a balance between the pros and cons of the knife. Subjective judgement.
