C232 Brouwer

"Designed by Dutch custom knifemaker Jerry Brouwer, the Brouwer Folder faithfully captures the spirit of his popular “Flanker” model in a production folding knife. Created as a serious, everyday-carry cutting tool, it is small enough to carry conveniently, yet substantial enough for challenging cutting chores.


The heart of the Brouwer is its full-flat-ground blade, which is crafted from CPM® S30V® particle metallurgy stainless steel. Its drop-point profile offers outstanding utility, while a paired index-finger choil and textured thumb ramp ensure precise control when used with a “choked-up” grip. Spyderco’s Trademark Round Hole™ is positioned closer to the blade’s centerline to allow a straight spine, while still offering easy one-handed opening.


The Brouwer’s handle features a solid titanium scale and Reeve Integral Lock (R.I.L.) on one side and a textured green G-10 scale and nested, skeletonized stainless steel liner on the other. To ensure a solid lock-up and long service life, the R.I.L. includes a stainless steel interface that also serves as an overtravel stop. A reversible stainless steel hourglass clip mounted to the butt end of the handle keeps the knife ready for instant access and offers a choice of left or right-side tip-up carry. It is complemented by a lined lanyard hole for easy attachment of fobs and safety lanyards."
