Spyderco FB41GP Bob Lum Darn Dao Fixed 10.63" CPM-154 Satin Plain Blade, Black G10 Handles, Leather Sheath, Flash Batch
SPFB41GP: FB41GP Darn Dao
Based on one of Bob Lum’s rarest custom designs, the Darn Dao was inspired by the "single knife" broadsword of the classic Chinese martial arts. Lum took the spirit of this historic piece and scaled it down into a beautiful fixed-blade. The soul of this formidable knife is its blade, which is expertly full-flat ground from thick CPM-154 stainless steel and includes a long, unsharpened swedge to ensure an acute point. For maximum strength and a deft balance, the gracefully curved blade has a full tang that is flanked by contoured black G10 scales. Like its inspiration, the Darn Dao’s handle flares at the pommel to establish a positive grip during high-speed manipulation. The sheath is equally impressive. Handcrafted from heavy, top-quality leather, it features a thumb-break-style snap that provides positive retention and swift draw. Produced as a "flash batch"—a one-time serial numbered limited addition—the Darn Dao is destined to be one of the most collectible Spyderco knives ever made.
A Flash Batch is similar to a Sprint Run but features a brand new design that has not been previously produced. Flash Batches are also unique, one-time-only expressions of a particular model, but are likely to be even more rare and collectible than Sprint Runs. Spyderco is proud to offer these exclusive, limited edition production runs to celebrate the diversity of their designs and stimulate even greater collector interest in their knives. Each Flash Batch knife will be individually numbered for the entire run.
