SP180GP: C180GP Tatanka
Fans of large, hard-use folders rejoice! Spyderco’s new Tatanka takes Spyderco’s familiar look and proven performance characteristics then supercharges them with the extreme strength of an all-new lock—the PowerLock. One of the strongest locking mechanism produced, it is housed within a handle of full skeletonized stainless steel liners and textured G10 scales. The Tantanka’s business end features a stout saber-ground VG-10 blade with a pronounced swedge for an acute point. A four-position clip provides tipup or tip-down carry on either side of the knife, providing every possible carry position and makes the knife all-around ambidextrous.

Pros: Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness, Blade Material, Lock Ease of Use, Handle Feel, Handle Material, Lock Type
Cons: Ease of Opening, Pocket Clip, Weight, None
So far this knife is awesome. I am a farmer and have carried Millie's for years. That said I have broke blades on Millie's which made me very conciseness of what I was doing, I keep them extra sharp and no shenanigans. When the tatanka arrived in the mail I was amazed by the size, way bigger and heavier than Millie. Long story short this has been my edc since I opened the mail box, I have no qualms about light prying like popping bee boxes apart, I used it to hack poison ivy vines off of trees or cut briars like it was a machete, these are things I would not do with the military. The only draw back I've seen is the blade is really tight compared to my millies. I can pull the military out of my pocket blade drawn as fast as a switch blade but the tantanka I struggle with because it's so big and heavy the blade is tight even after a couple months, I will keep trying different methods but I do miss Pulling out my Millie with the flick of a wrist ready to roll. That said I'm very impressed great utility knife!

This knife is amazing. It's my first Spyderco, so I had to go big! It feels great in hand and despite the size it fits well in my pocket for EDC. Looks like I'll be a Spyderco fan from now on.

Rock solid beast
For those of you that love large blades, this is the knife for you! Huge, powerful, sharp blade with a rock solid spine lock, and lock up is solid and safe! This knife has the usual G-10 scales that Spyderco uses on most of their knives. The knife although large, still fits comfortable in my front pocket, you will know it's there. This knife is not for those looking for a small knife! The VG-10 is VERY sharp and you must use caution when opening and closing the blade. My thoughts are that I love this knife, it has quality parts and will perform for many years to come! The only Con I could say about this - A knife this large would also be great with a belt sheath, but not totally necessary since it has a pocket clip.
