Ed Schempp was known to Spyderco fans as the designer of solid full size folding knives like the Persian, Kris and Barong when the C141 Balance came out in 2010. Contrary to those other designs, the Balance is very small, almost tiny. However, like those other designs, the C141 features the same refined ergonomics that make it work really well. I recently clipped the Balance in my pocket again and was pleasantly surprised to rediscover this little gem in my collection.
Cool little knife. I can see why Spyderco collectors would pine for this one.
