The Brad Southard is Spyderco's first collaborative knife to feature a ”flipper” created by Kit Carson-a small integral lever near the tang of the blade that allows the knife to be opened with a stroke of the index finger. It features a CTS-204P hollow-ground blade that rotates on a special captive ball-bearing pivot system for super smooth action. The Southard's handle construction includes a titanium liner and textured earth-brown G-10 scale on one side and a solid titanium scale on the other. The solid scale is the understructure for the Reeve Integral Lock (R.I.L.) mechanism and a pocket clip configured for right-side, tip-up carry. The blade and handle components of the Southard Folder feature a stonewashed finish.
Many applications require a knife that is non-reflective. To adapt the Southard Folder to these applications, Spyderco introduces a black-bladed version featuring a durable TiCN coating with a handle scale machined from black G-10.
