DescriptionSP161GP: C161GP UlizeSpyderco
The Ulize is a slim, stylish folding knife designed for both performance and ease of carry. Its blade is hollow ground from VG-10 stainless steel and features a dynamic recurved profile. This sinuous blade shape combines a well-centered point, a curved “belly,” and a subtly recurved edge to maximize the cutting performance of all areas of the blade. Strategically placed jimping on the blade’s thumb ramp provides a positive index for the user’s thumb and ensures superior control during all cutting tasks. The handle of the Ulize is built on a framework of skeletonized full stainless steel liners and a stainless back spacer. This construction style supports the knife’s mid-positioned back lock mechanism and provides extreme strength while minimizing weight. Textured G-10 scales encase the handle along its entire length and are bead blasted to further enhance its grip. A four-position hourglass clip supports deep-pocket tip-up or tip-down carry on both left and right sides. These carry options along with the knife’s back lock mechanism and Trademark Round Hole, make the Ulize completely symmetrical and fully ambidextrous. In the open position, the Ulize manifests a continuous flowing curve from the butt of the handle to the tip of the blade. This curve and the handle’s exceptional ergonomics not only make the Ulize extremely comfortable in the hand, they also create a slight negative angle of the blade that increases the pressure of the edge during cutting, enhancing overall cutting performance. The blade’s negative angle also shortens its arc during opening, guaranteeing swift, positive one-handed blade deployment. The Ulize is an extremely unique folding knife perfectly suited to the needs of its intended audience and many other knife users.
