One of My Favorite Quotes...

“The Master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his education and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence in whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he is always doing both.”

Spyderco Terzuola Carbon Fiber Knife

A few weeks back I bought a few Spyderco knives to test out and try for EDC use. And one of them is the Spyderco Bob Terzuola carbon fiber plain edge knife. Not knowing much about the knife and it being my first Spyderco, I basically bought it because of the cool carbon fiber design that stems from my past love for car racing parts. So, I bought it and here are some pics.

As awesome as the knife is, it has some issues that I didn't realize when I bought it. You can't flick it open and it's a non-locking knife when open. Mind you, it's a great knife for EDC purposes, but since I'm so used to the Axis mechanism of some of Benchmade's knives it's hard to go back. But, let me tell you, the Spyderco Terzuola comes very sharp out the box. I almost cut myself from being a bit careless. Oh, did I mention the carbon fiber? I love carbon fiber and it's a bit refreshing when compared to the simple knives I have in the collection. Enough about that, here are more photos, which I'm much better at than reviews.

Here's a product description of the Spyderco Terzuola knife from Amazon... "Designed by noted custom knifemaker Bob Terzuola, the Bob T SLIPIT is a non-locking folding knife with a distinctive folding mechanism. Called the -Inch Ball Joint Non-Locking System, -Inch it uses two sets of small ball bearings in spring leaves in the liners to hold the blade in the open position and provide resistance when closing it. Previously only available on his prized custom knives, this mechanism also half-stops the blade when closing for safety. A pronounced finger choil provides a home for the index finger and helps keep the blade from closing during use. The modified wharncliffe blade of the Bob T SLIPIT is hollow ground from CPM-S30V stainless steel. The handle is constructed of woven carbon fiber scales with stainless steel liners. A reversible steel pocket clip provides left or right-side tip-up carry and is nested into the handle to prevent loosening. Every Bob T SLIPIT also includes a folded leather lanyard a silver crimp."

This would be my ideal EDC if it had the capabilities to flick open like the Spyderco Manix or Benchmades. It's light and it's the perfect size for my needs. It's the same size as my Benchmade Mini Griptilian (shown in the photos) in not only from the handle, but also from the blade. It's more flat feeling than the Mini, but it does have that cool carbon fiber. The Terzuola is that accessory that goes along with your outfit kind of deal. HAHA! It's that good looking. Anyways, I hope what I post as well as the photos help.
