Spyderco FB42GP Zoomer Fixed 5.2" CPM-20CV Satin Plain Blade, Black G10 Handles, Leather Sheath
SPFB42GP: FB42GP Zoomer
Designed by survival enthusiast Thomas Zoomer, the Zoomer is a highly evolved outdoor tool that transcends the functionality of traditional bushcraft knives. Its blade is expertly crafted from CPM-20CV and features a zero ground hamaguri (convex) edge. The unique handle design features two machined solid G10 scales that envelop the blade's through tang, yet allow the butt of the tang to protrude for use as a hammer surface and lanyard attachment point. Its seamlessly contoured shape is devoid of hot spots and includes an extended thumb shelf for additional leverage. The Zoomer comes complete with a high-quality leather sheath that includes a ceramic sharpening rod and an on-board accessory pouch.
