One of the most anticipated Spyderco knives of 2018, the Kapara is Spyderco's first collaboration with Australian custom knifemaker Alistair Phillips. The design is based on Phillips' popular Redback folder and, like the term "redback," draws its name from the redback spider (Latrodectus hasseltii), a species of highly venomous spider found throughout Australia, New Zealand and Southeast Asia. The adult female redback has a spherical black body with a prominent red stripe on the upper side of her abdomen. Inspired by this distinctive feature, Phillips' handmade Redback folders showcase a contrasting red backspacer in the handle.
The Spyderco Kapara is an exquisitely executed folder that faithfully represents the character and meticulous craftsmanship of Alistair Phillips coveted custom knives. An impressive synthesis of style and utilitarian function, we hope you will be as excited about it as we are.
