SP190CFP: C190CFP Schempp Bowie
This robust folder is a great addition to the acclaimed Spyderco Ethnic Series, translating the style and spirit of the classic American Bowie into a highly functional folder optimized for EDC. In appearance, it's similar to the Navaja, but every other design aspect besides the materials and overall shape is different. The CPM S30V blade has an iconic clip point profile and a full-flat grind for enhanced cutting performance. It tucks into a coffin-shaped handle that features skeletonized stainless steel liners, textured carbon fiber/G10 laminate scales, a solid steel backspacer, and a dovetailed old-school bolsters with an integral double guard. A stout liner lock mechanism with a reversible deep-pocket wire clip competes this state-of-the-art expression of a true American classic.

Update review on a EXCELLENT knife
I couldn't edit my original review so I am posting another, updated one. I was doing some cleaning and ran into this knife that I hadn't picked up in quite awhile. As I cleaned it I noticed just how well the balance of the knife was and how comfortable it was in my hand. I also really, really loved the wicked shape of the blade. The handle reflects light back in different patterns as you turn it. I was a bit awestruck. I went from not liking it much to really loving it. I then decided to see if it would shave off some hair on my arm. Ok, I was stupid and my angle was a bit off and the thing was so sharp it sliced a sheet of skin along with the hair, so thin it barely bled! Talk about scalpel sharp and that's right out of the box. I heartily recommend the knife thought the price is a bit much. The name of the maker, along with Spyderco, and the quality of the materials make it worth the cost. It may even go up in value some day but that's not certain; what is certain is that this is one nice little folder!

Pros: Ease of Opening, Blade Material, Handle Feel, Weight, Overall Quality, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Sharpness
Cons: None
It is currently my EDC right now. Stout, quality construction, good ergonomics, classic look, large in size but not over the top. As always Spyderco products are excellent. Excellent value for the price paid. The knife center service was also top notch. Easy, precise, no hiccups. They will be getting more business from me.
