Spyderco's Pattada was a modern interpretation of the traditional resolza, the signature folding knife of the city of Pattada, Sardinia. The Pattadese (pronounced pah-tah-day-say) takes that stunning design and scales it down by over 15 percent to make it even handier and more pocket friendly. A proud member of Spyderco's Ethnic Series, the Pattadese's iconic blade shape is faithfully expressed in M390 stainless steel. The full-flat-ground plain edge blade is housed in a gracefully curved handle built with full stainless steel liners and beautifully contoured G10 scales. A sturdy liner lock mechanism ensures that the blade locks securely open when in use and a deep-pocket wire clip keeps the Pattadese poised for instant access by providing a choice of left or right-side tip-up carry.
