C16 Wayne Goddard
This is a collaboration model and the design partner is Mr. Wayne Goddard, a master smith in the American Bladesmith Society. The design is unique and goes back to a custom model of Wayne, called “Odin’s claw”.
Information from the Spyderco catalog
Over thirty years ago, Wayne Goddard set out to create a heftier, stronger knife that would hold a better edge. Today Wayne is a historian of the folding knife and creator of this Spyderco/Goddard collaboration series. This design is a composite of hundreds of different Goddard folders and is available in three sizes. The 50/50 combination blade incorporates the Spyderco Trademark Round Hole and eliminates the “hump” just above the hole. The blade has just enough belly to be effective, and the tip is reinforced to accommodate heavy-duty work. The slim scales are made of Micarta to provide strength, lightweight handling and attractive styling. The handle includes a built-in “guard” to provide optimum protection against sliding up on the blade, and the clip is positioned high on the knife for convenient carry (note that the Baby Wayne Goddard does not have a clip). Each of the three sizes performs well in a variety of situations, and each makes a great utility tool.
The knife in itself features a sturdy drop-point blade, hollow saber grind, Mar-McBurnettte front lock, clip and opening hole. The designer’s signature is etched onto each blade. The micarta handled knives have the standard clip for tip-down, the FRN variations offer ambidextrous clip for tip-up carry.
All are made in Seki city, Japan.
