I have received the very first Spyderco/Farid K2 collaboration knife today and wanted to post a couple of pics and talk a little about the quality/fit and finish of this knife.
But first I would like to take this opportunity and express my thanks and appreciations to Sal and Eric for believing in my K2 design, this collaboration truly is a dream come true. This is a very proud moment in my life and I am extremely happy that I have had the opportunity to collaborate with a company which I have respected throughout my knife making courier. I am going to enjoy this very special moment and remember it for the rest of my life.
Towards the end of this week or next week I will be testing this 10v K2 and I will be posting all pictures of the test.
Now the knife. Fit and finish is just perfect, the side plates have a light stonewash finish and a very smooth feel to them, the radius on top of the blade makes holding the knife very comfortable, it has my signature wave cut out on the lock bar which is the same as my custom versions, the grinding on this CPM®10v® is perfectly symmetrical. It is a comfortable knife to hold and use, in the next few days I hope to do some cutting tests and show the true nature of this knife.
Once again my deepest gratitude goes to Sal and Eric and everyone at Spyderco.
