Designed by Dutch custom knifemaker Jerry Brouwer, the Brouwer Folder faithfully captures the spirit of his famous “Flanker” model in a production folding knife. Created as a serious, everyday-carry cutting tool, it is small enough to carry conveniently yet substantial enough for challenging cutting chores.
The heart of the Brouwer is its full-flat-ground blade, which is crafted from CPM S30V particle metallurgy stainless steel. Its drop-point profile offers outstanding utility, while a paired index finger choil and textured thumb ramp ensure precise control when used with a “choked-up” grip. Spyderco’s Trademark Round Hole is closer to the blade’s centerline, allowing a straight spine while offering an easy one-handed opening.
The Brouwer’s handle features a solid titanium scale and Reeve Integral Lock (R.I.L.) on one side and a textured green G-10 scale and nested, skeletonized stainless steel liner on the other. The R.I.L. includes a stainless steel interface that also serves as an overtravel stop to ensure a solid lock-up and long service life. A reversible stainless steel hourglass clip mounted to the butt end of the handle keeps the knife ready for instant access and offers a choice of left or right-side tip-up carry. A lined lanyard hole complements it for easy attachment of fobs and safety lanyards.
