"The latest edition to Spyderco’s groundbreaking Ethnic Series of knives, the Hungarian folder pays homage to the traditional pocketknife of Hungary. Designed by Hungarian architect and knife enthusiast Szakonyi Gábor, this beautiful knife faithfully captures the graceful lines of the traditional “fejesgörbe” (“header curved”) folding knife, as well as the spirit of quality that typifies Hungarian folk art. Featuring Walker LinerLock construction, full stainless steel liners, sculpted stainless steel bolsters, polished G-10 scales, and a full-flat-ground CTS™ XHP blade, this extraordinary knife represents a powerful links between traditional artistry and state-of-the-art manufacturing."
