Spyderco Paysan C238TIP Rassenti Design - CPM-S90V Blade - Titanium Handle
Spyderco's new Paysan folder is an exquisitely crafted knife based on the custom creation of renowned knifemaker Peter Rassenti. French for “peasant” or “farmer,” the Paysan (pronounced pie-zaan) is, paradoxically, an incredibly sophisticated design.
Its uniquely shaped, saber-ground blade is crafted from 4mm-thick (.157-inch) CPM® S90V® particle metallurgy stainless steel and features a fully accessible Trademark Round Hole™ for ambidextrous, one-handed opening. The blade pivots on ball-bearing washers for an ultra-smooth action and is housed in a one-piece handle machined from solid titanium—to include its high-strength Reeve Integral Lock (R.I.L.) mechanism.
A stainless steel interface in the lock yields a long service life and also functions as an overtravel stop. To keep the Paysan poised for instant access, it includes an hourglass pocket clip configured for right-side, tip-up carry.
