SP195GPOR: C195GPOR Brad Southard Positron
Spyderco
 
Designed by custom knifemaker Brad Southard, the Spyderco Positron takes all the best features of a full-service flipper folder and distills them into a compact, pocket-friendly format optimized for everyday carry. A faithful expression of Southard's "Ion" folder, this KnifeCenter Exclusive Positron features a full-flat-ground satin plain edge blade crafted from premium CPM-S35VN particle-metallurgy stainless steel. Integral to the edge side of the blade, its minimalist flipper tab provides swift, reliable one-handed opening with the stroke of an index finger. In the open position, the flipper also serves as an extremely effective hand guard and a perfect complement to the handle's ergonomic lines.

The handle's twin scales are crafted from polished orange G10 that is precisely machined, radiused, and polished to create an amazingly comfortable grip. They also house the nested, skeletonized stainless steel liners that are the heart of the knife's sturdy liner lock mechanism. To ensure an ultra-smooth opening action, the Positron's blade and handle are joined by special ball bearing washers that greatly reduce friction and ensure a long service life. A reversible deep-pocket wire clip offers either left or right-side tip-up carry and strikes an excellent balance between subtle discretion and immediate access.

Pros: Pocket Clip, Handle Feel, Handle Material, Blade Material, Weight, Ease of Opening, None
Cons: Blade Sharpness, Lock Ease of Use
Awesome knife, but....
Awesome flipper, the G10 material of the handle and the easy smooth opening of the blade and its very lite on the pocket. Only things I don't really like is the lock is sunk deep in the handle and the blade grind sucks. The Taiwan workers need to learn how to properly sharpen a knife, especially one of this caliber.

Nice design - Poor construction
I love Spyderco , I own many of their knives however they dropped the ball on this one. I think this is a good design but would not function as advertised, the flipper would not flip, too tight, and it took quite an effort to release the liner lock, a new knife should function as advertised. I also question the smooth G10, I love the grip and feel of regular G10 but when you smooth it out you loose one of the properties that make G10 a great handle material. I received the usual courteous and prompt refund from KnifeCenter when I returned the knife.
