Spyderco 2012 Prototype – Brad Southard Folder

Another long awaited design was the Brad Southard Folder, which will be Spyderco’s first ‘flipper’ design folding knife. The blade certainly flipped open very smoothly – even for this lefty. The knife felt very solid without being too heavy. I like the brown or coyote G10.

    This is an interesting departure from Spyderco’s usual stuff! I’m probably pointing out the obvious here, but this one reminds me of the ZT0560 a lot. I’ll definitely be getting one of these if they make it to full production… and I hope they do!

  2. The knife is beautiful. But … Blade … as it reminds Griptilian.

    Where and when can this knife be pre-ordered?

    • I don’t know, better check with your preferred dealer.

        Do you have any idea on the length of the blade and handle? It looks to be close to 4 inches but its hard to tell just from the video.

      • I only get to handle the prototypes and photograph them, I don’t get info on the precise specs. Judging from memory the blade was around 3,5 inches with an around 4 inch handle. But it has been a few months since I handled the prototype

    Sent an email to Spyderco asking about it.
    They replied:

    Dear Joe,

    Yes the C156BN The Brad Southard Flipper will be a main production item.
