Spyderco 2014 Production Prototype – Slysz Bowie

The Slysz Bowie folder was a very attractive folder to me. It’s a straightforward ‘simple’ folding knife design, but it had some refined touches.

The spine of the blade was rounded. The integral lock operated very smooth and the blade locked up very well. There’s also a G-10 spacer that features jimping to enhance the grip.  Compared to Slysz’s Techno design, this seemed like a much more light and elegant design. Still, this Bowie folder looked and handled like it should be a hard working knife.

Unfortunately, we didn’t get around to taking some measurements of the Slysz Bowie. I recall the blade being in the 3.2 – 3.5 inch territory, but I could be off on that. I can’t wait to see this design hitting production and becoming available. I want one!

    Sounds like Eric pronounced it “Swish”.
    I’ve also heard Michael Janich pronounce it that way too.
