SP194CFTIP: C194CFTIP Myrtle
Spyderco
 
The Myrtle is an amazingly versatile folding knife that accurately reflects the refined style and craftsmanship of its designer, Belgian custom knifemaker Filip de Leeuw. Its unique blade profile combines the hardcore cutting performance of a broad, leaf-shaped blade with the enhanced utility and dexterity of a slightly hooked point. Full-flat ground from CPM S30V powder-metallurgy stainless steel and featuring a PlainEdge cutting edge, its hybrid shape and exceptional edge geometry allow it to excel at all types of cutting tasks. A generously sized Trademark Round Hole also proudly identifies its Spyderco pedigree and ensures swift, positive one-handed opening. The Myrtle's blade is paired with an equally unique handle that consists of a solid titanium scale on the reverse side and a skeletonized titanium liner, a titanium bolster, and a solid marbled carbon fiber scale on the front side. The solid titanium scale serves as the foundation of a sturdy Reeve Integral Lock (R.I.L.) mechanism that locks the blade securely when open. It is also the anchor point of a wide hourglass clip that ensures convenient right-side tip-up carry for instant access. The Myrtle's unique clip also does double duty as an overtravel stop for the R.I.L. lock and, like the titanium scale, liner, and bolster, features a handsome non-reflective stonewash finish.

Spyderco Myrtle
This knife should have been great, but I have no idea how they slip past QC. This isn't a comment on KnifeCenter, they where great with the transaction and I would recommend any other knife through them, however this knife Spyderco shipped is not good at all. The weird geometry of the thumb hole, along with the insane detente means the knife is two hand opening, normally I couldn't care less about how "sharp" the Spydie hole is out of Taichung but with the stiff detente its just really poor. Once the knife is past the detente you are greeted with a super stiff action, smooth, but stiff, so much so you can grab the blade when its half open, shake it around vigorously, and it won't move a millimeter, and it's a pretty hefty knife. The centring was spot on and while the transition between the scale and bolster wasnt totally smooth it was very good for the sale price. My big problem is the lock. This has the single worst frame lock I have ever seen. The engagement goes from about 20% to 50% depending on how hard you open it, and when it's at the 20% it can be clicked over to the 50% despite being rock solid at 20% - My theory is that the lock is just so sticky it can't make full lock up, like reverse lock stick. And that brings me to the worst part, the lock stick. along with the poor engagement the whole thing just feels really cheap and flimsy, like you're getting all the strength and consistency of a plastic lock bar but at $160. What frustrates me is how spyderco consistently refuses to include steel inserts, which is fine if you know what you're doing, but out of the two Framelocks I have both of them stick to high he** - they clearly have no clue how to consitently make a high end framelock at high end framelock prices. I've contacted spyderco about but am still awaiting a response, I don't blame them for the QC, it happens, but when you don't include a steel lock insert because you "Don't need one" you really do lose my sympathy.

Pros: Overall Quality, Handle Material, Blade Sharpness, Blade Material, Lock Ease of Use, Pocket Clip, Lock Type
Cons: Ease of Opening, Handle Feel, None
Great, interesting knife.
Great art piece for those days you feel like carrying something different but still highly functional. Very thick blade stock which is good for durability but edge is still very thin

QC?
Yeah, I got a stiff one. How this passed QC at the factory is beyond me. It is nearly impossible to open one handed because the detent is so strong. Since this is going to be a safe queen, I doubt I will be sending it back to Spyderco for a warranty repair. Sal, you reading this? Besides this defect, and the sharp edged Spydie hole, the knife was finished properly. As others have mentioned, the ergos were botched because the Spydie hole is not exposed enough for a good thumbpad purchase when opening the blade. So I give the knive 5 stars for looks, 3 for ergonomics and 2 for QC.
