The late Bob Lum was a highly revered custom knifemaker whose work had a profound influence on modern cutlery design. An expert in Asian ethnic knives and a pioneer in blending them with modern Western designs, he was the first knifemaker to combine a traditional Japanese tanto with the reinforced tip of a katana sword. The result was the hybrid “Americanized tanto” that is now a mainstay of modern cutlery design.

Spyderco’s Lum Tanto fixed blade is also a synthesis of classic Japanese style and modern Western knifemaking methods. One of Spyderco’s earliest fixed-blade designs, its hybrid blade shape combines a hamaguri (Appleseed) grind at the point, hollow-ground primary bevels, and a spine swedge. The traditional tsuba (guard) is replaced by an integral double guard that provides excellent hand protection without interrupting the sleek lines of the design. To ensure superior strength and exceptional balance, the handle has a full, tapered tang –- a rare feature on a production knife. 

This limited-edition Sprint run features 3-D-machined forest green/black G-10 scales. Earlier blades in this run were handled with scales of burgundy paperstone –– a material that proved to be unpredictable in the manufacturing process. The final 600 blades of this Sprint Run were therefore finished with G-10 scales and will no doubt be highly collectible. Every one of these unique knives comes complete with a handsome leather sheath.
