Honestly not sure why the flipper tab is so large too, with such a thin light blade you would think they could make it line up with the handle when open

I just don't care for the (lack of) belly on that model. The wire clip should be the default clip on every spyderco tbh.

interesting, a flipping spydey, never seen it before. looks like a good fidgety piece
and the full edge down to the handle is a bit ugh, still it's a Spyderco so as a "fanboi"
I still like it.🇬🇧

I want to get a Spyderco in my collection but I can't decide between this and the Para 3… Thoughts?

they could have maybe done the flipper a little different I still like it though it'll be another one I add to my collection I definitely wouldn't risk choking up definitely a little weird I do agree with the carbon fiber
