If you move in custom knife industry circles and/or attend knife shows you will have heard of Frank Centofante. In addition to being a celebrated and longtime custom knifemaker Frank is a past President of the Knifemaker's Guild, a strong voice in the cutlery world and a revered and respected craftsman. Collaborating on knife designs with him is something Spyderco has been fortunate enough to do several times. Our latest offering is the Centofante3 gentleman's folder.

The Centofante3 has a thin-profiled, lightweight FRN handle. Two channels are furrowed out of the handle for better grip and a Palladium silver Spyderco bug is inlayed into its surface. For added security and convenience the back-lock is positioned midway on the spine and David Boye Dent is cut from the locking lever. The VG-10 blade has both a hollow-grind and swedge-grind with non-sharpened spine serrations to hold the thumb steady when cutting. A black steel pocket clip positions for tip-up/down, right-hand carry.

Pros: Blade Material, Lock Ease of Use, Lock Type, Overall Quality, Pocket Clip, Weight, Ease of Opening, Blade Sharpness
Cons: Handle Feel, None
This is worth a 4.5 only because the handle is too smooth. It would easily slide out of your hand if wet or if your hands perspire. Other than that, the knife is so attractive and super sharp. Spyderco should make a Centofante 4.

Sleek gentlemens folder VG10 baby
This is my second Spyderco, and I got this knife as I liked the fact it was VG10 and had a little palladium silver spider insert, plus at this price... Palladium is part of the platinum group of metals and is pretty rare and inhert, mainly used in car catalytic converters for it's properties. Anyways back to the knife. This is a gentlemen's folder, the knife is sleek and the blade extremely thin (2mm) with a hollow grind, this is not a workhorse. VG10 is hard and can get extremely sharp, however it can be a little brittle. A very nice looking knife, the Centofante is not too easy to open with it's lock back, closing it can be a little tough at times and because it's so thin, I do worry about reducing the number of digits I have. The trick is to hold down the lock back and flick it open or shut, it's helluva fast and not many lock backs can do this. I know my Cold Steels can't. The pocket clip can be adjusted to tip up or down carry, I wouldn't use the Spyderco "cheap wave" mod on this blade (basically a cut zip-tie) as it may result in blade play or you may break the knife. The knife is held together by rivets and it's not moving, however with hard use it might. This is a slicer, not a stabber or hacking knife. Great with a suit and very small footprint, a decent gentlemen's knife at 78grams . 4 stars from me because of the opening with the thumb hole and the blade edges being a little too sharp for my liking. Thanks KnifeCenter for the great pricing and quick shipping.

Good Every Day Carry
I use this product everyday carry and it works like a dream. I love the Spyderco thumb hole and the fact that it is a traditional lock back. I am a huge fan.
