Spyderco's Superleaf was designed in response to requests for a super-sized leaf-shaped blade, and hence the name Superleaf. The flat ground VG-10 stainless steel blade has a satin finish and a plain edge with Spyderco's trademark thumb hole. The G-10 handle has skeletonized steel liners with the Compression Lock® locking mechanism. This type of lock is similar to a liner lock, except it is at the spine. A lanyard hole and wire clip make this a great knife for everyday carry.
I have several spyderco knives. While I like all of them very much, what makes this one my favorite is the way the handle wraps into my hand. Extremely comfortable. This is the only spyderco knife I own with the compression lock, and with that, and its functionality, I am impressed.
