Spyderco 2017 Production Sample – Jonny Liao Hundred Pacer

The Hundred Pacer was a nice ‘odd’ surprise to me at the meet. I actually googled some pictures of the knife’s slithering namesake, and I have to admit that the knife’s handle pattern and upswept blade really look a lot like the snake. The knife was big and looked very unusual. The handle even looked a bit too blocky to me at first. Picking up the knife, however, made a lot of difference for me. This was a very light folder and that blocky handle seemed surprisingly versatile for different grips. I think Eric mentioned it in one of the SHOT show videos, and I agree that the Hundred Pacer seems to make a wonderful folding kitchen knife. I also like the G-10 pattern on the handle a lot. It’s very different from what Spyderco usually makes. Even though on paper this knife is a bit larger than I usually prefer, I might just add the Hundred Pacer to my wish list.
