Well, another year, another calendar contest.
Thank you again Spyderco for hosting this contest every year. Some great contributions so far! I'd like to throw my hat in the ring this year with the following submission... In Spanish, the word "con" meens "with." So I guess my submission is entitled...
Model: C229GM4P, Shaman in CPM-M4/Jade G10
The Shaman is, in the grand scheme of the Spyderco timeline, one of the new kids on the block, and to me is a recipe for a great newer Spyderco classic. Mix the form of the Native series (wait, no hump?!
), the beefiness of the Manix series, sprinkle on a compression lock and contoured G10, and Voila. When the first variant of the model was announced to include CPM-M4 tool steel, I knew I had to have one, as such a solid folder was just begging for the hard use steel. The backdrop to the picture is "Mr. Tiki Man", a hand carved sculpture which my step daughter used to spend her time as a toddler conversing with daily.
