The Tusk is both a state-of the art mariner’s tool and part of Spyderco’s history. The original design dates back to the early days of Spyderco’s beginning with Sal Glesser’s desire to produce a high performance mariner’s tool. The technology at the time was not available for the visionary concept. That’s all changed today, redesigned by Sal’s son Eric Glesser more than 25 years later has
brought to light the original Tusk with new modern twists. Made from all highly rust resistant materials the Tusk features a blade made from LC 200 N and full titanium scales including a Reeve Integral Lock.
Spyderco’s C91 Pacific Salt is designed to offer reliable high performance with a never-rust H-1 steel blade. All internal steel parts are treated as well making them impervious to rust and pitting. The blade’s hole is enlarged to 14mm for easier opening/closing with gloved, wet or cold hands. http://kcoti.com/1bLSnGp
Spyderco Native with Carpenter Steel Blade and Brown Handle
We think the Native is one of Spyderco’s best designs. It is medium sized, has a great blade shape and the handle is thin so it’s easy to carry. We thought you might want one with the great Carpenter CTS-XHP steel and so we got this model for you. Not only that, but we are offering it at an initial discount of only $79.95! These blog posts stay up here, so don’t blame us if, when you see this post, it’s already back to our full discount price of $89.95. These are a Sprint Run meaning there are only but so many made. They will run out so grab one if you’re interested!

Spyderco Hungarian Design Folding Knife
Spyderco’s ethnic series has amazed a lot of us through the last several years. They have taken designs – some ancient – and modernized them in their own inimitable fashion, into modern Spyderco models. Included among them are the Jot Singh Khalsa, Bob Lum Chinese Models, the Ed Schempp Navaja, and the Nilakka Folding Puukko among others. This model, however, is really exceptional. The eastern European flavor is reflected in the stylized handle which fits an average sized hand very well. The dual extensions on the highly polished bolster serve as a thumb rest on top and a guard on the inside of the handle. The materials seem really well thought out a with nicely polished and well formed G10 handle along with a top quality steel blade that is what Spyderco calls a full flat grind- meaning flat from the top of the blade to the top of the final bevel that goes to the cutting edge. Although all parts of the handle, bolster and pocket clip are highly polished, the blade is left with a satin finish. This is a great knife, made in Taiwan and presented at Spyderco’s high level of quality. Collector’s will want to have one of these so that, in years to come, they will be able to take this out and amaze others. The liner lock works very well and is buried just enough to avoid accidental release. These swing open easily, lock securely and close conveniently. We see this latest entry from Spyderco Knives as a real winner, even though the price is not low. You get what you pay for- at least in this case, and in our opinion.

With two new flippers in two successive years, Spyderco must be trying to change their Trademark Hole or something fishy is going on. Flippers keep gaining popularity with knife knuts because they’re easier and are in some cases faster to open. The addition of an assist mechanism or ball bearing system gives you the peace of mind that the blade will open quickly and do so completely, every time. The Domino is just this kind of knife with buttery smooth bearings, making it very fun to play with. In use, it’s like any other Spyderco – just made to cut things! The CTS XHP steel is among the best in performance on the market due a high hardness and edge holding capability. The best thing about it though, is something you cannot see; the ease at which it can be resharpened. Hard steels like D2 and ZDP perform very well until they get dull. That’s when you either have to spend an hour working on the edge or send it out to get professionally sharpened. Not so with XHP. It’s fine particle metallurgy and high chromium content makes sharpening easier while also boosting its corrosion resistance. The Chris Reeve Integral frame lock (with replaceable lock bar insert), four-position pocket clip, and carbon fiber laminate handle are just other parts of this very well manufactured product. Check out the new Spyderco flipper at www.knifecenter.com.

Spyderco Brad Southard Flipper
Spyderco Knives creates a great new knife that works as an every day carry for everybody as well as a special tool for people who need a great knife in their every day work. This knife has a lot of “bells and whistles.” It’s lightweight, has a slim profile, opens easily and locks solidly. This is a first for Spyderco. It probably won’t be the last flipper opening knife that Spyderco Knives offers. The Southard designed blade is a long belly – that’s it and this makes for a really useful tool. The top of the blade has jimping near the handle which is great for control and then another ramp further out for when you are choked up on the knife for a more controlled and precise cutting. This pocketknife has a framelock system with a titanium side to the handle. A piece of that titanium alloy actually flexes over to lock the blade in the open position. The pocket clip sits on that side and is polished steel. The Southard flipper from Spyderco is a medium sized folding knife and you can see them at www.knifecenter.com.
