"Ed Scott is a custom knifemaker and avid hunter living in South Africa. He consulted with numerous professional hunters searching for the perfect hunting knife design. After many prototypes, he developed the Impala. Spyderco has unveiled two versions of the Impala: both have black G-10 handles that are comfortably sculpted and chamfered to be easy on the hand during extended or difficult cutting. One version has a gut hook (double beveled and sharpened on both sides of the inside radius) positioned at the blade's tip that vanishes fully into the contours of the handle when the knife folds closed. The second Impala is snubbed-nosed, muscled thick at the tip, and textured with furrows atop the tip's spine and again behind the round hole. The texture creates a positioning point for the index finger focusing control over intricate cuts or carving. Both have blades 3 11/16; (94mm) long of VG-10 high carbon stainless steel that lock open with a Walker liner lock. Positioned for tip-down pocket carry, the clothing clip sits nested in a shallow crater milled out of the G-10 handle. The crater creates a lower profile for comfortable use. Principally designed for field use, a lanyard hole at the butt-end accepts a thong or lanyard cord, secondarily attaching the knife for the outdoorsman who misplaces knives in tall grass or around water." Excellent condition. Comes with original box.
