D'Allara Drop Point
New York City Police Officer John D'Allara entered but never exited World Trade Center Building One on September 11, 2001. Officer D'Allara was a life-long Spyderco collector who owned nearly every model we've made. In his commemoration and remembrance Spyderco offers the C82BK2 D'Allara Drop Point Folder. It presents the knife market a high-performance folder option with a premium VG-10 stainless steel blade and a hard-use rated lock system called the Ball Bearing Lock™. Its contoured handle is molded from impact-resistant fiberglass reinforced nylon (FRN) and patterned with grip-sticking Bi-Directional Texturing™. Engineered to ergonomically fill the hand, the handle's curves and valleys generate less fatigue and discomfort when grasped tightly or when cutting for extended time. The drop-point blade is made with cobalt enhanced VG-10 stainless steel packing 3-1/2 inches (89mm) of cutting power. Pulling back on the ball bearing releases the locking mechanism. Fully open the folder is 8" (203mm) long and weighs 5.75oz (164g). Available with a PlainEdge or CombinationEdge™ blade.
Please note, the "bronze" color that you see on the clip is intentional. The clips are actually heat treated (they are stronger and will perform better because of this). The heat treated wire clip is also more discreet in your pocket.
