Spyderco Lil' Temperance 3 C69GP3 pocket knife, Sal Glesser design
The Spyderco Lil' Temperance 3 is the third incarnation of the Lil' Temperance. The qualities of the fixed Temperance, but more compact, as a folding knife. The Lil' Temperance 3 uses a compression lock. A lock invented by Sal Glesser that looks a lot like a reversed liner lock, but is a lot stronger.
When opened you can see from the overall shape of the knife that it is derived from a fixed counterpart. The slightly receding handle at the front is evidence of this. You can easily open the S30V steel blade with the characterizing thumb hole. The pocket clip ensures that this knife will be a friend to all: you can place it in four different ways, there is something for everyone.
