My Redback model came about from the need for a food preparation knife. I was looking to prepare some healthy fresh lunches and wanted to create a knife to fulfill my needs. The Spyderco Round Hole allows for ambidextrous opening, the RWL34 blade has a full flat grind coming to a thin edge for great slicing. The compression lock keeps the lock out of the way of any food that might get trapped in there. Titanium liners and carbon fibre scales keep the weight down for a great EDC knife.
