Spyderco Viele Phoenix Ball Bearing Lock Titanium Handle w/ Red G-10 Satin Blade Sprint Run C114GPRD
The late Howard Viele was an exceptional custom knifemaker with a style all his own. One of his most distinctive collaborations with Spyderco was the Phoenix, a dynamic folding knife design that showcased Spyderco's patented Ball Bearing Lock The ball bearing used in the lock sits on two springs that push it forward above the blade's tang, locking the blade open. High-tech yet simple, the round bearing rotates, rolling in its housing never wearing at exactly the same spot. It self adjusts as the knife is repeatedly opened and closed, minimizing wear and tear.
The C114 Phoenix fits the look with a curvy titanium handle that's jacketed with G-10 halfway up, covering from the lock to the handle's edge. Two deep finger choils and ricasso flow from handle to blade. Howard's personal signature is a symbol on the blade representing the Japanese God of War. It lines up with the functioning Spyderco Trademark Round Hole also taking up residence on the hollow-ground blade. Right-hand tip up carry pocket clip completes the package.
This limited edition Sprint Run model features a satin finished titanium handle with red G-10 onlays. Satin finished VG-10 stainless steel drop point blade. Satin finished hardware and a polished pocket clip. Brand new in box.
