SPYDERCO Howard Viele C42S Made in Japen Rare! Collector Must Have it Brand New
SPYDERCO Howard Viele C42S Serrated Blade Made in Japan, Rare! Collector Must Have it Brand New in Original Box. Master knife maker Howard Viele' s collaboration with Spyderco is truly a masterpiece and beautifully constructed knife. Signature Viele styling cues including his three hole mark are evident on the blade. The C42s Howard Viele was introduced in 1996, updated in 2000, and discontinued in 2003. A Collaboration with custom maker Howard Viele, it started off with an AUS-8 steel blade that was later updated with a VG10 steel and Eccentric pivot pin to allow adjustment to the pivot and i think prolong the longevity of the liner lock? It struck me as a Lovely gent's folder with the combination of the walker liner lock, VG-10 steel, Micarta handle scale on the front and smooth G10 scale on the back side.
It is Probably the smoothest opening Spyderco I've handled, despite the small spydie hole in comparison to today's models. Another nice feature is that it can also be opened via thumb pressure on the spine of blade much like some of the Burger and Gareth Bull folders.
