SP146CFP: C146CFP Szabo Folder
Laci Szabo is a law enforcement officer, a veteran U.S. Marine, and a world-class martial artist. He is also one of the most visionary knife designers in the industry, combining a unique flair for aesthetics with an in-depth understanding of function and defensive application.

The heart of Spyderco's Szabo folder is its 4.60-inch CPM S30V scimitar-shaped blade. Its partial hollow grind creates excellent edge geometry while reinforcing the spine for increased strength. A Trademark Round Hole™ in the blade supports swift one-handed opening with either hand and, together with a subtle guard on the edge side of the blade, effectively protects the user's hand during use. An unsharpened swedge on the back of the blade ensures an acute point and flows smoothly into a scalloped area on the spine that enhances the blade's trapping potential when applied with reverse-grip skills. 

The Szabo's generously sized handle is constructed of full stainless steel liners capped by Gold Line carbon fiber/G-10 laminate scales. This striking material consists of an outer layer of carbon fiber embedded with gold-colored wire that is laminated to a G-10 base layer. Visually stunning yet incredibly durable, it provides a secure, non-slip grip.

To cope with the extreme leverages associated with its longer blade, the Sazabo folder features Spyderco's high-stength Compression Lock accompanied by an internal “self-close” mechanism. Nested within one of the handle halves, this mechanism uses a spring piston to engage a plate attached to the blade tang. When the blade is closed, the piston gains mechanical leverage to rotate the plate, keeping the blade nestled securely in the handle for safe carriage. A four-position clip supports tip-up or tip-down carry on either side of the body.

A dynamic synthesis of form and function, the Laci Szabo folder faithfully captures both the creativity and practicality of its designer.

Compact Self-Defense Weapon
This is obviously the type of knife that would be nice to have if you ever found yourself in a life-and-death self defense situation. I am happy to say that I have never been forced to use this particular knife in such a circumstance, but I do know that there have been times in my life where I would have loved to have a knife just like this in my pocket. I feel that fixed blade knives are really much too impractical to carry around on a regular basis without drawing much attention to oneself... also most folders are better suited for everyday tasks than self defense. The Spyderco Szabo Folder is very well built. In my opinion it is very beautiful to look at and the balance is very nice... also the handle feels very secure in my hand. The lock on this knife is excellent. I feel that most of that locks on many of the knives I have used in the past have been too wimpy and I do like the lock on the Szabo. I don't feel that the stiff opening is an issue. I really think that if you find yourself in a knife-quick-draw situation then things are really messed up or you are asking for trouble. I like it allot but can't say that there isn't anything out there that wouldn't be better for it's intended purpose. Just some of my thoughts...
