SP08S: C08S Harpy
Like the claw of the Harpy eagle the C08 is shaped for controlled pulling cuts. The hawkbill blade shape originated in the marine/fishing industry where severing rope, line, webbing and netting is done at arm's length quickly and efficiently. The curving arc holds what you're cutting against the sharpened edge keeping it from slipping off the tip.

Custom knifemaker David Boye developed the dent in the locking lever, which insures the blade remains securely locked open when gripping the handle with force. Cut out of the handle is a shackle key/drying vent allowing air to circulate around the blade when closed wet. Metal clip is positioned for tip down carry.

I own one, but this particular Harpy I gave to my son-in-law for his birthday. He reports that he absolutely loves it. The Harpy arrived by pony express! It was perfect out of the box: exceptionally sharp, and attention to detail was excellent. Actually, I am a high end knife collector owning a few Rocksteads. I would state that for the money, this was an excellent purchase. It is an outstanding defense knife, and the blade deploys in a butter smooth, lightning quick fashion. The scales are very nice and fits small to medium sized hands. I do wish it had a more substantive locking mechanism for which Cold Steel holds the trophy

Spyderco C08S Harpy Folding Knife 2-3/4"
I gave this to my son-in-law as a birthday gift. He travels extensively, and it's a legal carry in many states. It makes for a most excellent self defense knife. It's weight, handling, feel in the hand are impeccable. It opens lightning fast. The lock is substantive for it's intended use. It's overall quality,and especially it's blade and balance are beyond reproach. It's BIG BROTHER, "The Civilian," is significantly larger, and the advantage of "Harpy" is that it can be held in your hand in a coat pocket, and is readily deployable in the twinkling of an eye. Her self defense abilities are incredible. She opens with ease; it's lock is perfectly suited for it's intended duties. This is an unbelievable knife with it's price point. I know of none better. Of course: The Best "X" is the one you like the most."
