Keep this knife with me all the time. Great Quality.
I have well over 200 knives. This is in my top 3. I like it so much, considering buying the black version. I'm not wild about the spring assist detent, seems like overkill. (The Tatanka doesn't need it). Anyway, I can ignore that. This knife is a beautiful thing. Like everything Spyderco puts out from Taiwan. It was a little tight brand new. Just oil the pivot lightly, work it. It will NOT swing freely if you want to "fiddle" with it. But it WILL smooth out. This is a fighting knife designed to fatally injure an attacker. Period. Know that going in. This is a tool, not a toy. But it IS a wonderful thing. If you are a collector and THINK you like it, you will. If you don't, you will have NO problem selling it on the aftermarket. These WILL gain in value over time.
Small enough to carry but sufficient to maintain a good edge on knives with non-serrated blades from 2 to 6 inches.
Great knife design. I would like the and knife blade just a little bit longer, 1/2 inch more would work for me.
Perfect for me, carry knife. But chrome clip got too much attention, so I switched it with a black one from another knife. I would like to have a black blade option also.
If I could give this Spyderco 10 stars I would! Superior quality. Nice weight to it. Blade stays tight no matter how much you use it. Beautiful knife. VG-10 blade is the superior blade steel in hi-end knives. Get one.... you will not be disappointed!
A lot smaller than I envisioned. No clasp so floats around in your pocket, could easily be lost. Not a very practical knife. I won't use it as an EDC, very sharp out of the box & with a little further honing on a leather wheel it became ultra sharp. Good steel blade, easily opens & closes.
It's become my carry on, I use it all the time, it's well made very sharp and light weight. Feels good in my hands. Used by Hannibal Lechter and by John Locke in TV Lost. Cleans easily and maintains sharpness. It's unusual looking and easily opens.
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.
