Spyderco Double Bevel Tactical Folder

Spyderco’s newest tactical folding knife, the Spyderco Double Bevel features a unique double-ground blade. Near the handle it is hollow ground and has a full-thickness spine for maximum strength, making this section ideal for demanding cutting chores. Near the tip the blade is fully flat-ground for superior edge geometry and low-friction cutting performance. The flat-ground section also features a distal taper that terminates in an American tanto-style point for an exceptional balance of tip strength and sharpness. The Double Bevel’s VG-10 stainless steel blade features the famous Spyderco Round Hole for ambidextrous one-handed opening.

The handle of the Double Bevel is built on a foundation of full skeletonized stainless steel liners that also form the basis of the knife’s improved Walker LinerLock mechanism. When the blade is opened, a spring lock bar integral to the reverse-side liner engages a concave ramp on the blade’s tang, blocking the tang and locking the blade securely open. This lock geometry, was pioneered by custom knifemaker Bob Terzuola, it provides greater strength and security than conventional flat lock ramps.

The Double Bevel’s four-position hourglass pocket clip offers tip-up or tip-down carry on both the left and right sides, allowing the knife to be easily configured to suit any carry preference. A lined lanyard hole in the butt end of the handle also supports the attachment of a lanyard or fob.
