Spyderco

The Hundred Pacer folder was inspired by a deadly Taiwanese viper with a distinctive horned nose. Its venom is reputedly so toxic that a person bitten by it could only walk a hundred paces before expiring. Designed by knife enthusiast Johnny Liao, the Spyderco Hundred Pacer translates the sweeping lines of the snake's head into a broad, dramatically curved, full-flat-ground blade. Crafted from premium CTS XHP stainless steel, it features Spyderco's trademark Round Hole for swift, positive, one-handed opening with either hand. The knife's stunning handle scales are machined from layered G-10 to create a non-slip, snakeskin-like texture and contrasting color pattern. To keep the Hundred Pacer poised and ready, the knife features a reversible deep-pocket wire clip that supports ambidextrous tip-up carry. SRP: $359.95. (spyderco.com)
