What is Spyderco? Check product features and reputation

Entire Spyderco Knife 02, Shieldon

Spyderco is a major knife maker born in the United States in 1978. Folding knives are the mainstream, but we also manufacture sheath knives (types that fit the blade in the sheath). For those who are interested in Spyderco, we will first introduce the features of Spyderco knives.

 

“Samhole” is the biggest feature of Spyderco

Entire Spyderco Knife 03, Shieldon

The hole at the base of the blade, which you can see just by looking at the photo, is the biggest feature of Spyderco. This hole, called the “thumb hole,” plays a role in excellent operability that can be opened with one hand.

 

Spyderco patented Sam Hall. This is a function only available on Spyderco knives. Spyderco knives come with almost every product.

 

Thick cloth that is difficult to cut can be solved with “serration”!

This serration (full-wave blade) with unique characteristics is called “Spyderco serration”, and the blade part is processed so that the small wave blade, large wave blade, and small wave blade are lined up in a ratio of 2: 1: 2. This serration is designed to make it easy to cut thick cloths, rugs and wet ropes.

 

This serration and functionality peculiar to Spyderco is very good, but it is also difficult to maintain. You have to use a special sharpener (grinding stone).

 

What is the reputation of Spyderco?

I use it as a florist knife.

 

① The sharpness is wonderful. ② Very small. ③ It can be opened with one hand. (It is very helpful because there are many situations where one hand is occupied.) ④ The lock mechanism when open is solid. I really love it.

 

I go out to the sea by kayak fishing, so I bought a knife for safety. This is fine. Open with one hand, may require some practice.

 

However, closing with one hand seems to require skill. If you use it, it will be a better knife.

 

Even though it is so small, the shape of the handle is exquisite and fits in the hand, and the Zytel handle is light and easy to carry, and above all, it is highly accurate and gives you a sense of security.

 

This time I bought a man bug for a little work outdoors, but if it’s so good, I’d like to have a Delica 4 or a larger one for outdoor cooking (^ _ ^;)

 

Looking at the word-of-mouth, there are many contents that “the sharpness is good” anyway. There are also many opinions such as “small and easy to carry” and “it is good to open with one hand”.

 

However, there are also reviews that talk about the difficulty of maintenance and that it is not easy to make it your own, such as “it takes practice to open” and “it seems difficult to sharpen”.

 

quality. It is excellent in terms of functionality, but it seems that it needs to be managed properly in order to maintain its sharpness.
