SP16POD: C16POD Goddard Lightweight Olive Drab, 2013 Sprint Run
Several times per year, Spyderco manufactures a limited-number of select knives not found in their regular product line. These batches are called Sprint Runs. The runs are approximate in number and will not be reordered or available again once the run is sold.

Wayne Goddard is a Master Bladesmith whose name in the custom knife world evokes admiration and respect. A knifemaker for more than 30 years, Wayne produced a collaboration knife with Spyderco a several years back called the C16 Goddard Lightweight. We're releasing a Sprint Run of Goddard Lightweights with a different handle/clip color and updated blade steel.

Our Goddard Lightweight is made with VG-10 stainless with a sturdy drop-point style blade 3-5/8" (131mm) long. It's available in a PlainEdge configuration and features the Spyderco trademark Round Hole. Comfortable to open and close with one hand, the C16OD handle has a deep Volcano-Grip texture made from FRN, adding grip yet keeping the knife lightweight at 3.2 ounces (90 grams). A stainless clip attaches to either side of the handle (southpaws rejoice!) with a hollowed out screw that goes through (yet still retains) the lanyard hole. Removable using a coin, the clip is situated for tip up carry in the pocket. Overall length open is 8-3/4" (222mm) making the evolved Goddard collaboration CLIPIT the perfect size for indoor and outdoor cutting jobs.
