If you’re looking for a smaller hawkbill style blade, what better platform could you ask to build off of than the famed Spyderco Delica. The Lil’ Matriarch is the little brother of the new Matriarch 2 and the tiny brother to the Civilian, a specialized tactical design from the early ’90s. The serrated S-Shaped VG-10 blade is not meant for utility tasks but is perfectly designed to act like a claw and rip through anything it encounters. Featuring the exact same handle as the Delica4, all the ergonomics and functions are the same but you get a much more useful knife in emergency life threatening situations. Sharp jimping on the blade spine makes for great control and the four way positional clip, which is parkerized not painted, gives you options. The Lil’ Matriarch is only available in a serrated model but this is in no way a disadvantage as the serrations work ferociously during pull and draw cuts.
