The Spyderco C156GPBBK Southard Frame Lock Knife Black Plain Edge. The Southard’s handle combines a textured Earth-brown G-10 scale and thick titanium liner on one side with a solid titanium scale on the other. The titanium scale forms the foundation of the knife’s sturdy Reeve Integral Lock (R.I.L.) mechanism and features a small inlaid G-10 panel that acts as an overtravel stop when releasing the lock mechanism. It is also home to the knife’s matching stainless steel clip, which supports right-side tip-up carry. A flipper consists of a small lever that extends from the base of the Southard’s CTS 204P hollow-ground blade.
