From the Manufacturer:

Jess Horn was a true pioneer of modern custom knifemaking and the man directly responsible for inspiring Spyderco's founders to produce high-quality folding knives.

He was also one of our first collaborative designers when we revolutionized production knife design in the mid 1990's. Of the three models Horn designed for Spyderco, the most unique was the CX08 model—one of Spyderco's rare "experimental" designs. Although it was never brought into full-scale production, the "Baby Horn" was manufactured in limited quantities for A.G. Russell in the late 1990's.

This limited edition Sprint Run revives that extremely rare model, but with a distinctive, one-of-a-kind selection of premium materials, including a full-flat-ground VG-10 stainless steel blade, dark gray textured G-10 scales, and a classic straight stainless pocket clip configured for right-side tip-up carry.

A fitting tribute to a custom knifemaking legend and one of the inspirations that made Spyderco possible, the Baby Horn is destined to become an instant classic and a highly prized collector's item.

The modified drop point blade is made of VG-10 stainless steel. The steel has a hardness of 60-62 Rc. The blade measures 2-3/4" and the closed length is 3-3/8". Weighs 2.0 oz. Made in Japan. Suggested Retail $199.95.

Spyderco

In 1981, Spyderco ventured into the world of knife making by introducing their first folding knife, the C01 Worker. This knife was the first in the industry to feature a round hole in the blade design that allowed for fast, one-hand opening, now the company’s trademark, and the first to feature a pocket clip. The trademarked round hole is the most recognizable feature of a Spyderco knife and it facilitates the easy opening and closing of these knives with one hand while also offering convenient access and maximum control while opening as well as accommodating large, small or gloved hands.

Spyderco’s recognizable appearance is a result of designing ergonomically functional tools rather than applying lipstick and nylons to a pocketknife. Spyderco’s knives may look unusual, but they will never be called unusable or undependable. When you purchase a Spyderco knife, you are buying a high quality reliable cutting tool that was designed and manufactured for peak performance and ergonomic comfort.
