Australian custom knifemaker Alistair Phillips specializes in slim, pocket-friendly folding knives that blend classic styling with modern materials. Based on his custom “Redback” design, his first Spyderco collaboration captures his unique style and craftsmanship. Its CPM S30V stainless steel blade is full-flat ground for exceptional edge geometry and has a fully accessible Trademark Round Hole for left or right-handed use. Full, skeletonized stainless steel liners inside the handle’s contoured solid carbon fiber scales form the foundation of its high-strength Compression Lock mechanism. A contrasting red G-10 back-spacer creates a visual accent symbolic of the knife’s original name, while a reversible deep-pocket wire clip offers discreet left or right-side, tip-up carry.
