Spyderco 2011 Prototype – Vallotton Folder

The Valloton Folder reminds me of the old-style folders by Al Mar. This one looks like something  of a gent’s tactical folder. Al Mar would have made it with a subhilt handle.  I didn’t quite catch the materials, so I’m not sure if the handle is micarta or polished G10. It’s a tall blade, at least 4 inches. The knobs behind the opening hole are part of the locking mechanism, a new interpretation of the linerlock.  Do notice the faceted tip, it’s kind of like a clip point tanto tip.
