Spyderco 2015 Production Prototype – Filip de Leeuw Myrtle

The Myrtle was a nice big folder with a good custom ‘feel’ to it. The blade may seem a bit unusual, but it’s actually designed for the type of practical utility chores most people use a knife for; opening packages and cutting food. When I held the knife, it was very easy to imagine that the Myrtle would be a very practical design. I really liked the classic custom design with a bolster and the five screws in the handle that lined up nicely. The custom clip design is very different from the regular Spyderco hourglass clip, but in my handling of the Myrtle it seemed very comfortable to grip.
