Kapara - CPM 20CV / Grey G-10
The C241 Kapara is Spyderco’s first collaboration with Australian custom knifemaker Alistair Phillips. The design is based on Phillips’ popular Redback folder which takes its name from the redback spider (Latrodectus hasseltii), a species of highly venomous spider found throughout Australia, New Zealand, and Southeast Asia. Kapara is the Australian Aboriginal name for this spider. The adult female redback has a spherical black body with a prominent red stripe on the upper side of her abdomen. Inspired by this distinctive feature, Phillips’ handmade Redback folders showcase a contrasting red backspacer in the handle which Spyderco faithfully replicates as Phillips’ distinctive style and craftsmanship, as well as the signature red backspacer of his custom knife.
This Exclusive edition of the Kapara features a full-flat ground 20CV blade for exceptional edge geometry and has a fully accessible Trademark Round Hole for convenient one-handed opening with either hand. The gracefully styled handle has full, skeletonized stainless steel liners that provide structural strength and form the basis of the knife’s patented Compression Lock mechanism. The Kapara is mated with contoured Grey G-10 handle scales over full-length, skeletonized steel liners, showcasing it’s superior ergonomics. An index-finger choil at the base of the blade allows the user to choke up for enhanced control and helps draw attention to machined details on both sides of the blade’s pivot. To keep the Kapara poised for instant access, it includes a reversible deep-pocket wire clip for left or right-side, tip-up carry and a generously sized lanyard hole for the easy attachment of fobs or lanyards. The Kapara is mated with contoured Grey G-10 handle scales over full-length, skeletonized steel liners, showcasing it’s superior ergonomics. The Kapara is a slim, lightweight knife with a ton of cutting performance, get yours before they are gone!
