Unlike the SR-1's one-piece titanium handle, the LionSpy features a two-piece handle construction that consists of one black G-10 scale and one titanium scale. The titanium scale is precision machined from solid 6AL-4V titanium and serves as the basis of the knife's stout Reeve Integral Lock (R.I.L.) mechanism. Both scales are CNC machined with a series of grooves perpendicular to the handle's length to enhance its texture and ensure a positive grip. They also feature a refined shape that supports a wider range of grip styles and include a compact pocket clip that supports right-side, tip-up carry. This unique combination of materials and the knife's open-backed design reduce weight and simplify maintenance. The LionSpy's lock also includes Gianni Pauletta's patented RotoLock device. This titanium disk serves as an overtravel stop for the lock bar, preventing it from being pushed too far when the lock is released. When the knife is open, turning the RotoLock approximately 1/8 turn clockwise wedges the lock bar in place, preventing unintentional release of the lock and ensuring superior stability during hard-use cutting chores. To close the knife, rotate the RotoLock counterclockwise and push the lock bar laterally to unlock the blade. The blade of the LionSpy is ground from premium Elmax PM 170 steel. A third-generation powdered metallurgy steel from Austria's Bohler-Uddeholm, Elmax boasts high carbon and chromium contents and an extra-fine grain structure that provide extreme edge holding and corrosion resistance. The blade is a sturdy 4.5mm thick, but features a high flat grind and a pronounced "belly" for superior edge geometry and cutting performance. It also proudly wears Spyderco's Trademark Round HoleTM for positive blade deployment. The LionSpy is a unique collaboration that combines an award-winning design with Spyderco's distinctive style and functionality to yield a truly exceptional folding knife hard-use folding knife.

More Spyderco Items

Quick! List the most respected and innovative knife companies you can think of. If you know anything about knives, Spyderco is somewhere near the top. Spyderco Inc. makes some of the most unique and downright bizarre knife designs you'll see on the market, but from the number of passionate fans discussing, debating, and learning everything they can about Spyderco knives, it's clear that the company has done something right.

From the Glesser Family and the Spyderco Crew:

Since starting Spyderco we've been told our knives are different, peculiar, even out there. All true. Thinking beyond established knife industry barriers allowed us to introduce new and radical innovations to the knife culture including: One-hand opening, serrations on a folder and a clip to attach a knife to a pocket.

We didn't go into business to rake in a mountain of dough we're here for more selfish reasons- indulging our passion for creating knives. Spyderco is definitely out of the norm in the knife industry in our dedication to researching and developing fresh, improved and better performing materials all with function and reliability being key.

Someone once said to Sal Glesser, Spyderco's owner, "You must design in the dark because your knives look so strange." True again. Our recognizable appearance is a result of designing ergonomic functional tools rather than applying lipstick and nylons to a pocketknife. We may look curious, homely, whatever, but we'll never be called unusable or undependable.

Making knives that consistently deliver reliable high-performance requires an ongoing commitment to testing. In our million-dollar testing facility we examine edge retention with a CATRA machine, look for rust development with Q-FOG, check the force needed to open and close a knife. We also repeatedly test for stress, wear, optimal heat-treating and actively search for higher quality, performance enhancing steels and materials.

As a customer you probably don't think about this, or much care, but it allows us to put forth a promise. When you purchase a Spyderco you are buying a high-quality reliable cutting tool designed and manufactured for peak performance and ergonomic comfort. Those Who Know Carry Spyderco.
