DESCRIPTION - The Spyderco C65 Bob Lum Chinese Folder has a blade tapered like a leaf, broad, flat and razor thin along the edge. This venerable leaf-shape has been around for centuries found on serviceable everyday cutting instruments in China. It's a definite winner for general utility, hunting and tactical applications. The C65 has a 3 5/32 inch 80mm flat-ground blade made of VG-10 or ZDP-189 stainless steel. Matched up with a Almite coated aluminum handle, it's hard to say which reigns supreme, performance or eye appeal.
The handle's curvature ergonomically fits your hand for precise performance. A nested LinerLock enhances lock strength, granting peace of mind when really muscling down on a cut. The pivot pin is eccentric and adjustable for wear. Overall weight is 2.6 ounces (779 grams). The Chinese Folder is a high-tech version of a time proven design.
The knife world was saddened to learn of the passing of one its premier custom knifemakers in 2008. Bob Lum was a custom knifemaker who took traditional Asian designs and infused them with all things modern.
