SP168GP: C168GP Battlestation
Designed by Alexandru Diaconescu, known to knife enthusiasts as “Dialex,” the Battlestation is a folding knife built for extreme performance. Its hybrid tanto-style blade is saber ground from VG-10 stainless steel and features a sweeping point, an index-finger choil, and an unsharpened swedge. A sturdy back lock mechanism anchors it to a handle constructed of full stainless steel liners and textured black G-10 scales. It features a reversible wire clip configured for tip-up carry. An impressive synthesis of functional ergonomics and futuristic style, the Battlestation commands attention.

Cons: Ease of Opening
Battlestation for EDC
The Battlestation met my needs for a sturdy every-day-carry knife. The locking action is stiff, making for very slow one-hand-opening but providing a very secure lockup. The handle is solid and well shaped. The blade shape at first seemed a bit too flashy, but along with good handle ergonomics, provides a surprisingly good level of control for precise cutting.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Lock Type, Handle Material, Overall Quality, Pocket Clip, Ease of Opening, Handle Feel, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Material
Cons: None
This knife is solidly built, tough, and if need be, a menacing tool for self defense. The size and weight is perfect for everyday carry and the blade is easily deployed with one hand. Another fine product from Spyderco!

Another Winner from Spyderco
I have been using this knife for about two weeks in a warehouse. It has remained sharp after cutting cardboard, tape, and plastic banding. I have used it as a prybar and it remains tight at the pivot point. It fits my hand well.
