An innovative folding knife, the Zulu boasts a black G10 handle with a corrugated pattern which helps keep the knife firmly in the gripping hand while offering a unique visual aesthetic. The handle houses a Michael Walker LinerLock mechanism that is constructed via adjustable screws. Meanwhile, the tip-up/tip-down right-hand pocket clip is hourglass-shaped, thereby lessening wear and tear in the end user’s pocket. The Zulu also comes with a three-inch Scimitar-shaped blade made with Crucible Steel’s CPM S30V. The blade features a large radius hollow grind, as well as a tapered spine-wedge that runs from the tip of the blade to Spyderco’s patented Round Hole.

The Spyderco Zulu is available at a MSRP of $194.95. See below for additional details.
