SP195GPOR: C195GPOR Brad Southard Positron
Spyderco
 
Designed by custom knifemaker Brad Southard, the Spyderco Positron takes all the best features of a full-service flipper folder and distills them into a compact, pocket-friendly format optimized for everyday carry. A faithful expression of Southard's "Ion" folder, this KnifeCenter Exclusive Positron features a full-flat-ground satin plain edge blade crafted from premium CPM-S35VN particle-metallurgy stainless steel. Integral to the edge side of the blade, its minimalist flipper tab provides swift, reliable one-handed opening with the stroke of an index finger. In the open position, the flipper also serves as an extremely effective hand guard and a perfect complement to the handle's ergonomic lines.

The handle's twin scales are crafted from polished orange G10 that is precisely machined, radiused, and polished to create an amazingly comfortable grip. They also house the nested, skeletonized stainless steel liners that are the heart of the knife's sturdy liner lock mechanism. To ensure an ultra-smooth opening action, the Positron's blade and handle are joined by special ball bearing washers that greatly reduce friction and ensure a long service life. A reversible deep-pocket wire clip offers either left or right-side tip-up carry and strikes an excellent balance between subtle discretion and immediate access.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Ease of Opening, Weight, Blade Material, None
Cons: Lock Ease of Use, Lock Type
Not bad, needs work
Having big fingers I find the linerlock very hard to disengage, the back edges are pointed making hotspots. And the edge of the flipper tab are also quite pointed, I think it would have been better accepted if it was 1/2 - 1 inch longer. Blade is very pretty, the grind marks are well done, the edge is razer sharp. And the flipper D-Tent is actually really nice, better than a Mantra.

Excellent Knife, Positive Action
I've always been interested in Spyderco knives, but the clearance special finally convinced me to try the Positron. The scales are smooth without being too slick, and the wire clip and won't chew up my pockets like other clips I've had. At first the flipping action was a little stiff, but after about a week of fidget flipping, the action REALLY smoothed out and I now can open the knife in my sleep. The ball bearing action on the Positron really feels like it's built to last, and the lockup is secure in the closed and open positions. I've used for everything from breaking down boxes and shrink-wrap at work to slicing veggies and meat at home, and the blade makes short work of every task over the past few months while maintaining a great cutting edge. The complaints about the liner lock being tough on your thumb are valid, but if you use your index finger, it is MUCH easier to close one-handed. Overall, I'm extremely happy with my first Spydie, and highly recommend the Positron to anyone looking for a high quality midsize flipper.
