QSP CopperheadIf you’re not familiar with QSP Knives, and you like budget-friendly modern folders that look and work great, you need to get familiar. QSP is producing hard-working EDC folders with excellent action. The QSP Copperhead is no exception. It’s a full-size thumb stud opener that performs as good as it looks.

The Copperhead features a 3.5″ 14C28N stainless steel drop point blade. It actually comes in two different blade finishes. There’s the dual finish black coated and satin (which we love), and then there’s the plain satin finish version. Both are .12″ thick.

The QSP Copperhead has machine contoured black G-10 handles with steel liners. We love the orange accent around the pivot, as well as the jimping in the palm and on the back spacer. It also has a removable, but not reversible tip-up pocket clip that really ties back into the blade finish.

This is a full size EDC folder. It closes down to 4.75″ and is 8.25″ full open. Even with the steel liners, the Copperhead weighs in at just 3.5oz.
