If you consider it, every civilization both ancient and modern has historically developed its own variety of cutlery that is representative of its culture, ethnicity and cutting requirements at the time. Spyderco unveiled its first ethnic inspired knife with a Shabaria folder, reminiscent of classic Middle Eastern cutlery. Next up, a Japanese Tanto then a Chinese Folder. In 2003 we released a Persian knife followed by an Indonesian Karambit blade. The latest installment Spyderco's Ethnic Knife Series is a Kris folder designed by custom knifemaker Ed Schempp. Kris blades come in several diverse profiles but traditionally incorporate some form of a wave pattern in the blade. Historically they represented a Moro (Philippine) man's societal standing, provided talismanic benefits and were utilized for defense. The C105 Kris' curvy blade fundamentally becomes a cutting edge with oversized serrations, transforming its cutting properties. The curvy profile markedly continues into the handle providing a variety of grip options. The VG-10 steel blade comes hollow-ground, with a pronounced swedge grind running from mid-blade to the spine and is PlainEdged. Milled Micarta handle scales are capped with polished steel bolsters. Locking bar is equipped with a David Boy Dent and the blade and clip are embellished with gold Spyderco logo bugs. The pocket clip positions the folder right-handed, tip-up.

Specifications

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.

Buck Knives Fixed Omni Hunter 12 Pt Knife with Black Handle and Guthook Blade
"What can I say - It's a Buck! Excellent feel and of course very sharp. I have owned many Buck knives over the years (I'm 69) and I have never been disappointed."

Dom C. from Bay Area Northern Ca on Thursday

Buck Knives Spitfire, Green Aluminum, Plain
"I find this knife to be a solid edc performer. I have been carrying it for about two eeeks now. I am a contractor and I am tough on blades. I like the pocket clip and how secure it is. Most picket clips fail for me after a while. This seems to be very strong and durable. The blade is easy to sharpen.If it had an assisted opener it would be a 5."
