Spyderco C166P Equilibrium Folding Knife 1.69" VG10 Plain Blade, Stainless Steel Handles
SP166P: C166P Equilibrium
The Equilibrium takes the highly refined symmetrical design of the popular Balance folding knife and scales it up to offer a full four-fingered grip. Like the Balance, the Equilibrium was designed by renowned knifemaker Ed Schempp. And, like its inspiration, it packs impressive cutting performance into a remarkably compact package.
The Equilibrium features a satin-finished stainless steel handle that forms the foundation for its Reeve Integral Lock (R.I.L.) mechanism—a robust, reliable lock built into the reverse-side handle scale. A four-position pocket clip allows the knife to be conveniently carried on either side of the body in either the tip-up or tip-down position. Its compact size also makes it a practical and stylish money clip when carried inside the pocket.
The blade of the Equilibrium is precision machined from VG10 stainless steel. Its perfectly straight cutting edge is supported by full-flat-ground bevels to create a highly functional wharncliffe profile. A pronounced choil (scallop) in the heel of the blade provides a solid index finger purchase and, together with the contoured handle, offers a comfortable and secure four-fingered grip. The choil also places the blade’s edge in line with the knuckles of the hand to offer impressive cutting power for its size.
Spyderco's Trademark Round Hole completes the package to support both easy one-handed opening and fingernail-friendly two-handed opening. Whichever method you prefer, we're confident you'll find the Equilibrium to be one of the most convenient, compact and capable folding knives you've ever used.
