Spyderco Display Tower CT01
"Displaying out products in their best light increases your sales, no doubt about it! The Spyderco tower display case parades eight knives in their open position and room for a 204 Sharpmaker in the bottom. Made of clear acrylic, it gives your customer a 360° view of what's inside. The Tower locks by means of an arm-lever locking bar (keys included) allowing you to leave your stock on a countertop without the fear of it "sprouting legs and walking away". An 8 1/2 by 11 inch acrylic page frame snaps to the top for signage.
