Spyderco 2011 Prototype – Szabo Folder

Apparently Laci Szabo is a ‘big guy’ and this knife fits the man; it’s big. The blade length is around 4,5 inches and it used a compression lock to hold the blade open. The Spydercrew did some extensive lock testing so the lock matches Laci’s style of MBC. This involves a reverse grip with the edge out and plenty of trapping and cutting. A separate mechanism is used to hold the blade closed. I tried depressing the compression locking tab while the blade was closed, and indeed, the blade stayed put. The blade doesn’t come out until you want it too. I have no need for an MBC folder for carry or in my collection, but I’m positive this will appeal to many others. Plus, Laci’s logo is way cool.

Note: Eric corrects himself in the video, but to make it clear – this prototype has a CPM S30V blade not a VG-10 blade.
