Built on the handle of the popular Endura design, the Spyderco Matriarch 2 features full skeletonized stainless steel liners that provide a perfect balance of strength and weight.
The injection-molded FRN handle ensures a superior grip with its Bi-Directional Texturing. With screw-together construction and phosphor-bronze washers, the Matriarch 2 offers maximum precision and smooth operation.
The Matriarch 2's Reverse "S" blade profile combines with SpyderEdge serrations for unparalleled cutting ability.
But the real star of the show here is the patented Emerson Opening feature, which allows for unparalleled speed and convenience when deploying the knife. This feature is a small integral hook on the spine of the blade that, when drawn from tip-up carry, opens the blade automatically as it clears the pocket.
Originally designed to provide an economically viable option in place of Spyderco's iconic Civilian, the standard Matriarch 2 combines the Civilian's aggressive blade shape and Reverse "S" edge profile with the convenient, lightweight handle construction of the best-selling Endura 4.
With the addition of the Emerson Opener, Spyderco has taken this knife to a whole new level of speed and convenience.

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.
Great defense knife, it opens so fast and is very sharp! Pray I never have to use it, but better prepared than not!
