Spyderco 2012 Prototype – Gayle Bradley Air

Each meet seems to be even better than the last one and this one was the best yet IMO. I loved to see all those spydieknuts, there’s a great atmosphere at these gatherings. Also, I loved seeing and handling all those prototypes (and concept models I can’t show you)! I did my best to get as much pics as possible from each model. So without further ado, here’s the Gayle Bradley designed Air.

It’s a nifty little pocket knife. It is clipless and handles as light as pocket lint. This knife has a good edge to handle ratio with a CPM-M4 blade. The silver twill handle is very stylish. I peeked inside the handle to see generously skeletonized handles. I did notice a second little cutout in the liner close to the pivot. Did anyone catch what the purpose was for this cutout? The wharncliffe blade is thin and ends in a needle-like tip. In a way, a surprisingly elegant little folder for a designer who’s known for the big cutting completion knives.
