Spyderco Knives Schempp Barong Folder VG10 Blade Field Green G10 Handle - SP124GPFG
SP124GPFG : Spyderco Schempp Designed Batong Liner Locking Folder
An amazing design in this collaboration with Custom Knifemaker Ed Schempp. This knife reminds us of the Military model in that it is lightweight and features a full sized blade and an oversized thumb hole. The full sized 4" leaf shaped blade is very usable with a flat grind. The minimalized handle of G10 with steel liners tucks out of the way but allows for a great grip. A removable black stainless steel pocket clip offers right or left-handed tip-up carry.
