We just received our second shipment of the highly sought after Spyderco C155TIP Centofante Memory Folding Knife. This superb gent's knife has been made in honor of the late Frank Centofante, a highly respected knifemaker for forty-years and president of the American Knifemaker's Guild, who passed away in 2009. Frank was a key contributor in educating Spyderco's manufacturing team, teaching them how to recognize, appreciate and build quality knives. He often said, "If you can't see the difference... you can't build the difference." In his honor, the Memory shines with a blued titanium handle with a silver-colored woven-glass fiber front scale. Tucked inside is a Michael Walker LinerLock, outside a VG-10 flat-ground classic spear-pointed blade with an embellished Spyderco bug. Packaged in a black zippered pouch. This knife is destined to be a highly collectible heirloom knife.
