Spyderco Reinhold Rhino Folding Knife 2.35" (C210CFP)
Spyderco Reinhold Rhino Folding Knife 2.35" CTS-XHP Satin Plain Blade Carbon Fiber Handles - C210CFP
The Reinhold Rhino is a unique design by Michael Reinhold a avid outdoorsman and a longtime fan of Spyderco's "little-big-knife" philosophy, Reinhold's Rhino design began as a quest to create a knife that incorporated a trailing-point blade into a compact folder that could be carried like a traditional jackknife. He wanted it to function as a light-duty skinning and field-dressing knife, yet still being versatile enough to tackle a broad range of other everyday cutting chores.
Initially, Spyderco's expression of the Reinhold Rhino was intended to be a pure working knife with textured G10 scales and a CTS BD1 stainless steel blade. Unfortunately, the quality of the first production run of this knife did not meet Spyderco's stringent standards. Rather than release a less-than-perfect product, Spyderco moved the project to another manufacturing facility and, in the process, took full advantage of that facility's ability to work with more sophisticated blade steels and handle materials. And although Spyderco regretted having to make eager customers wait longer for this much-anticipated design, when they saw the result, they knew they had made the right decision.
True to its little-big-knife theme, the Reinhold Rhino offers impressive strength and cutting performance in a very compact package. Its blade is crafted from CTS XHP stainless steel—a premium workhorse blade material that provides an excellent balance of hardness, edge retention and corrosion resistance. The sweeping trailing-point profile offers a long, curved cutting edge that packs plenty of performance into its length and a full-flat grind that gives it exceptional edge geometry. Ideally suited for a broad range of cutting chores, the blade proudly showcases a Trademark Round Hole that identifies it as a member of the Spyderco family and allows convenient one-handed opening.
Despite its compact size, the handle of the Reinhold Rhino offers a comfortable, hand-filling grip. Its scales are precision machined from tough carbon fiber/G10 laminate and thoughtfully radiused to eliminate any hot spots or sharp edges. The obverse (nearside) scale also has a relieved cutout for easy access to the blade's Round Hole. Stainless steel liners nested within the scales provide impressive structural strength and form the foundation of the knife's Compression Lock mechanism. This patented lock is extremely strong and allows the knife to be easily closed with one hand without ever placing your fingers in the path of the edge. To ensure ease of carry, the Reinhold Rhino includes a reversible stainless steel pocket clip that can be configured for left or right-side tip-up carry and a lined lanyard hole for the easy attachment of fobs and lanyards.
Compact, convenient, and extremely capable, the Reinhold Rhino is sure to become a fan favorite.
