SP156GPBBK: C156GPBBK Black Brad Southard Flipper
Spyderco
 
The Brad Southard is Spyderco’s first collaborative knife to feature a “flipper” created by Kit Carson—a small integral lever near the tang of the blade that allows the knife to be opened with a stroke of the index finger. It features a CTS-204P hollow-ground blade that rotates on a special captive ball-bearing pivot system for super smooth action. The Southard’s handle construction includes a titanium liner and textured earth-brown G-10 scale on one side and a solid titanium scale on the other. The solid scale is the understructure for the Reeve Integral Lock (R.I.L.) mechanism and a pocket clip configured for right-side, tip-up carry. The blade and handle components of the Southard Folder feature a stonewashed finish.

Many applications require a knife that is non-reflective. To adapt the Southard Folder to these applications, Spyderco introduces a black-bladed version featuring a durable TiCN coating with a handle scale machined from black G-10.

Excellent EDC !
excellent knife overall.. for the price this is a very very good folder/flipper. few things can make it perfect. finishing can be bumped up a notch.. several spots very sharp (lock relieve etc) pocket clip should be on the lock bar side. pretty sharp at some spots too word of caution : knife comes very sharp! more so than most knife I got, production or custom!
