Spyderco Roadie 2.09in Folding Knife Black
Unlike traditional penknives, the Roadie features a subtle index-finger choil that increases control of the knife during use and acts as a safeguard against unintentional closure. These enhanced features elevate the Roadie far beyond the conventional penknife and set a higher standard in socially friendly cutting tools. Although the knife was never given the opportunity to respond to its original ?calling,? the result of the project was far too good to pass up. The business end of the Roadie is a sheepfoot-style blade ground from BÃ¶hler-Uddeholm N690Co steel, a high-performance stainless steel alloyed with cobalt, molybdenum, and vanadium. Its wide blade profile and full-flat grind create incredible edge geometry for a keen, scalpel-sharp edge. The broad blade also provides real estate for the distinctive ?Double Dent? feature that allows the blade to be easily opened with a pinch grip of the thumb and index finger. Although not intended as an opening feature, a Trademark Round Hole? in the blade proudly identifies the Roadie as a Spyderco product. At the base of the blade near its juncture with the handle, there is a subtle forefinger choil (finger groove). Placing your index finger on the choil provides excellent control of the edge and creates a natural ?stop? to help prevent the knife from closing unintentionally. Both the choil and the opposing thumb ramp on the spine of the blade feature jimping (textured grooves) to promote a positive, non-slip grip. Unlike a traditional slipjoint, the Roadie´s blade is held open by an improved notched-joint mechanism. Its spring also forms the handle´s full-length back strap, giving it structural strength and providing a foundation for the durable fiberglass-reinforced-nylon (FRN) scales. The injection-molded scales are contoured for comfort and feature a recessed Spyderco ?bug? logo on both sides. They are also available in a wide variety of colors to suit every taste. 3" closed slip joint. 2" N690Co stainless sheepfoot blade with double dent opener for fingernail-free two-handed opening. Black contoured fiberglass-reinforced nylon handles with notched-joint mechanism. Lanyard hole.
