The illustrated Spyderco Knife is the Spyderco Brend Pirela Mamba Knife, designed by Walter Brend and Joel Pirela, that features a 3.77" upswept blade made of CPM S30V stainless steel, .177" thick. The blade of this Spyderco knife has a hollow grind, a two tone black TiCN (titanium carbonitride) and satin finish, the Spyderco hole and a flipper for smooth ambidextrous one hand opening. The black twill carbon fiber handle, 5.48" closed, has skeletonized titanium liners for strength, a pronounced choil for secure grip, and a titanium liner lock. A removable metal pocket clip is mounted at the butt end of this Spyderco Knife. The Spyderco Brend Pirela Mamba Knife has an overall open length of 9.25" and it weighs 6.5 ounces. Made in Taiwan.
From the Spyderco website: A fusion of the talents of acclaimed custom knifemaker Walter Brend and knife designer Joel Pirela, the Brend/Pirela Mamba is an impressive fistful of tactical folder that operates with watch-like precision. The thick, skeletonized titanium liners that form the foundation of the handle also support its LinerLock mechanism. They are flanked by meticulously machined solid twill carbon fiber scales. The gracefully upswept CPM S30V blade faithfully replicates Brend's distinctive grind lines and highlights them with a dramatic two-toned finish of black titanium carbonitride (TiCN) coating on the bevels and a satin finish on the flats. Linking everything together is a butter-smooth flipper mechanism and ball-bearing-enhanced pivot for lightning-fast one-handed opening.
