This Brad Southard designed Spyderco is certainly a unique piece coming out of the Colorado based company. With a flipper tab, this guy sits on ball-bearings and opens extremely easily with just one finger. Being a titanium R.I.L. frame lock, the Southard is one-hand user friendly, as you can open and close this guy all with just one hand. The handle shape is simple yet ergonomic, with the entrance for the frame lock release doubling as a finger choil during use. The flipper tab also sticks out to act as a finger guard when the knife is open. Being open-backed, this guy is super easy to clean out after use. Jimping on the spine of the blade gives you extra leverage. 

This model originally came all blacked-out, with the titanium frame being black and coming with a black G-10 scale and pivot panel for the show side. This model DOES come with the original G-10 scale, but is currently equipped with an aftermarket micarta scale and pivot panel. The Southard C156 comes with a black tip-up pocket clip for right-handed carry. 

When it comes to condition, this Southard flipper is certainly pre-owned and seems to be lightly used. There are a few small blemishes on the CTS 204P blade as well as on the titanium part of the handle near the middle screw. There is one more small nick on the spine of the handle on the clip-side titanium liner. As shown in the pictures, the blade is not perfectly centered and is leaning towards the face-side liner. It may need a small adjustment to the Integral Lock mechanism to fix this, but I thought it should be mentioned. I believe that some of the marks on that side of the blade are due to rubbing against the liner. The micarta scale is in great shape, but the original black G-10 scale does have a scuff near the butt. Lastly, this guy comes in an original Spyderco box, but the barcode and SKU label have been covered up and has been given an arbitrary SKU number. This will show in the photos as well. 

Please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions, I can be called or texted at 603-986-1169 or emailed at Thank you!
