SP199TIP: C199TIP Nirvana
Spyderco has teamed up with Peter Rassenti, a custom knifemaker from Canada, for another amazing collaboration; the Nirvana. Produced in Taiwan, this integral handle titanium folder is more of a mid-tech piece than a production one. It has all the feeling of Peter's custom model without the matching price tag. The blade is made from S90V stainless steel with Spyderco's trademark Round Hole that is actually part of the original design. The handle is machined from a single piece of 6Al4V titanium with a broken glass pattern finish. The handle is thin, durable, ergonomic and absolutely beautiful. Jimping on the thumb ramp and near the butt end of the knife is perfectly executed and really locks this knife into your hand. This is Spyderco's first integral handle design and it's simply extraordinary.

Love this Rassenti
I really love this knife, it has such a solid feeling about it, quality is great and it is such a beautiful knife. The only issue is lock stick which can be solved by applying oxguard, also use frog lube or something similar to prevent rust. I am also not a big fan of the pocket clip,other than that this is best knife I have ever handled. This is an expensive knife and should be taken care of, after I got this had to get the Paysan as well, integrals are just truly next level.

Sebenza competition
Good knife not great. Everyone is trying to compete with the Sebenza but NO ONE is trying to make a BETTER Sebenza. Why not improve on the shortcomings of the Sebenza? Namely the WEAK nature of the frame lock. Even CRK is not improving on their design. The Inkosi is one that is close but does it wrong. This is just another reach for that market with a haphazard attempt...
