The Spyderco Vallotton Sub-Hilt Folding Knife is the result of a collaboration between Spyderco and renowned custom knife maker Butch Vallotton. In addition to the Spyderco Round Hole the Vallotton Sub-Hilt features an ambidextrous thumb stud that both opens the blade and doubles as a stop pin keeping the blade from rotating open beyond the locked position.
A long time fan of Italian-style, heavy-stock folders the Sub-Hilt bears an international flavor with a modified coffin-shaped handle of polished black G-10 with tongue-and-groove fitted stainless bolsters. Further complementing the handle is a Michael Walker LinerLock, a four-way: tip-up/tip-down, right- or left-handed steel clip and screw-together scale construction.
The Sub-Hilt features a 3.75" Modified Tanto style blade made from Crucible Steel's excellent CPM-S30V. The blade is hollow-ground at the cutting edge with a convex-grind at the tip and is offered PlainEdged for the best available cutting performance.
