DESCRIPTION - Jess Horn was a true pioneer of modern custom knife making and the man directly responsible for inspiring Spyderco’s founders to produce high-quality folding knives. He was also one of our first collaborative designers when we revolutionized production knife design in the mid 1990's. Of the three models Horn designed for Spyderco, the most unique was the CX08 model—one of Spyderco's rare "experimental" designs. Although it was never brought into full-scale production, the "Baby Horn" was manufactured in limited quantities for A.G. Russell in the late 1990’s.
This limited edition Sprint Run revives that extremely rare model, but with a distinctive, one-of-a-kind selection of premium materials, including a full-flat-ground VG-10 stainless steel blade, dark gray textured G-10 scales, and a classic straight stainless pocket clip configured for right-side tip-up carry.
A fitting tribute to a custom knife making legend and one of the inspirations that made Spyderco possible, the Baby Horn is destined to become an instant classic and a highly prized collector's item.
