The Centofante 3 has a thin-profiled, lightweight FRN handle. Two channels are furrowed out of the handle for better grip and a Palladium silver Spyderco bug is inlayed into its surface. For added security and convenience the back-lock is positioned midway on the spine and David Boye Dent is cut from the locking lever. The VG-10 blade has both a hollow-grind and swedge-grind with non-sharpened spine serrations (jimping) to hold the thumb steady when cutting. A black steel pocket clip positions for tip-up/down, right-hand carry.

If you move in custom knife industry circles and/or attend knife shows you will have heard of Frank Centofante. In addition to being a celebrated and longtime custom knifemaker Frank is a past President of the Knifemaker's Guild, a strong voice in the cutlery world and a revered and respected craftsman. Collaborating on knife designs with him is something Spyderco has been fortunate enough to do several times. Our latest offering is the Centofante 3 gentleman's folder.

Superior knife
Joseph C.
Iíve purchased three knives from Blade HQ in the last month and this knife is really outstanding. Super sharp out of the box and easy to sharpen when needed. Great steel, smooth operation and very light to carry. Very glad I purchased it
Great work knife
Zack K.
Came razor sharp, I could shave with it out of the box. I I've had this knife for years and the only problem I had was losing the clip and spyderco logo inlay after dropping it a few times. Great knife and I'd highly recommend it.

Sidenote: this is the knife Izaya uses in Durarara which is also just a cool little side note.
A lightweight favorite
George S.
This is a great precision knife in an insanely slim and lightweight package. The blade is perfect for slicing and it sits tightly in pocket. It actually handles difficult cutting above its paygrade without an issue.
Best EDC knife i own
Matt e.
The Centofante 3 is by far my favorite EDC knife, the aesthetics of this knife are amazing and the VG10 steel is wonderful as always, I love this knife so much so that I just ordered another one.
Best deal ever!
Chad G.
I waited way too long to buy this knife. I loved it at first sight, but upon watching a couple reviews, I let the pinned construction scare me off. Until one day I was cleaning up a Case hunter that had been in my tackle box for a decade and still has no blade play. So I pulled the trigger on this fantastic knife that outshines the delica (no easy feat) for the same money! I really believe that if Spyderco fans weren't so attached to the full flat grind, this knife would outsell the delica hands down!
Centafonte 3.... The Perfect Urban EDC
Gilberto E.
The best edc knife is the knife that you carry and forget it is there until the moment you need it. That is exactly what this is... it is the perfect size and weight, handsome to look at, and therefore wearable with just abut any clothing from shorts to tux. The blade is hollow ground but you would never know that until you actually look at it because it cuts as good as a full flat ground blade. It is also surprisingly tough and can do some of what heavier bigger folders can do in a pinch and for a limited amount of time... but its perfect purpose is as a light duty gentleman's folder and this is what it excels at! It does all that at a price so good that if you bust it (Not Likely) or loose it, it won't break your bank... so buy 2... I did!

Nice slim light knife. Locks up nice and tight no blade play at all. Great EDC i love the shape of the blade. Great knife for the money.
