Information from the Spyderco catalog on the web

C215 EuroEdge:

"A proud member of Spyderco’s Ethnic Series of knives, the EuroEdge was designed by talented custom knifemaker Ed Schempp. Its remarkable design was inspired by Schempp’s hands-on research in some of Europe’s finest museums and his appreciation of the role that fullers—longitudinal blade grooves—had in the evolution of European knives and swords.

The EuroEdge’s dramatic, near-symmetrical blade is precision machined from CPM® S30V® particle metallurgy stainless steel and features several fullers to reduce its weight and strengthen it. The bead-blasted fullers stand in contrast to the blade’s beautifully executed satin finish to further highlight their presence. The blade’s single cutting edge is balanced by a long swedge (unsharpened bevel) and Spyderco’s Trademark Round Hole™ for quick, positive, one-handed opening.

Not to be outdone, the blade is paired with an equally stunning handle featuring polished, 3-D-machined G-10 scales that also feature longitudinal fullers. The handle’s full stainless steel liners provide impressive structural strength and form the foundation of the knife’s stout LinerLock mechanism. Its shape is reminiscent of the style of classic Swiss daggers, bracketing the hand at each end for a secure grip while offering a generous palm swell in the center. A pocket clip configured for right-side, tip-up carry completes the design, ensuring both ease of carry and immediate access.

An incredible fusion of rich, cultural history and modern manufacturing excellence, the EuroEdge is a highly functional cutting tool that pays homage to Europe’s ethnic knives with breathtaking fit and finish."
