The Centofante III is thin profiled and has a lightweight FRN handle. It has two channels that are furrowed out of the handle for better grip. The VG-10 blade has both a hollow-grind and wedge-grind with non-sharpened spine serrations. It also has a black steel pocket clip positions for tip-up/down, right-hand carry.
Frank Centofante is well known in the custom knife industry, a celebrated veteran knifemaker, past president of the Knifemaker’s Guild, and respected voice in the cutlery community. Innovative knife company Spyderco has collaborated with Centofante several times, with this model being the latest result.
The Centofante 3 offers a sleek profile with lightweight fiberglass reinforced nylon (FRN) handle. Two channels are furrowed into the handle for improved grip, and an eye-catching palladium silver Spyderco bug is inlayed into the handle’s surface. For convenience and improved security, the back-lock is positioned at the midpoint of the blade’s spine, with a clever David Boye dent cut from the locking lever. The razor sharp VG-10 steel blade has both a hollow grind and Swede grind for versatile use, and — when it’s time to be on the move — a black steel pocket clip offers a variety of carrying configurations.
