Fixed Blade Knife: EDC, Tactical, Utility
Spyderco Ronin 2, Carpenter CTS BD1 Stainless Steel
Spyderco was founded in 1976 by Sal and Gail Glesser. In 1981, the Glessers put down roots in Golden, Colorado and introduced the first Spyderco folding knife. That knife pioneered the concept of a round hole in the blade for one-handed opening, a clip on the handle for carry at the top of the pocket, and the option of a serrated edge for aggressive cutting performance. Those features revolutionized the knife industry and literally defined the form of the modern folding knife. Spyderco has steadily grown to become one of the leaders in the cutlery industry. In addition to a worldwide distribution network and manufacturing resources in the U.S., Japan, Taiwan, Italy, and China, Spyderco innovation has also earned them an impressive portfolio of patents, trademarks, and industry awards. More importantly, it has allowed Spyderco to earn the trust and loyalty of countless thousands of dedicated knife users around the world.
Presented is the Spyderco Ronin 2, based on a custom knife Janich commissioned from knifemaker Mickey Yurco. Its blade is crafted from Carpenter CTS BD1. Deep hollow-ground bevels on each side of the wharncliffe blade define a perfectly straight cutting edge. To ensure maximum strength and a deft balance, the Ronin 2 features a skeletonized full tang capped by thin textured black G-10 scales that guarantee a positive grip while allowing the knife to be easily carried and concealed. At the junction of the handle and blade, the tapered, ergonomic profile of the handle flares to create a very effective integral guard that protects the user's hand from sliding forward onto the edge. For maximum versatility, the Ronin 2 comes equipped with a custom-molded Boltaron sheath and a G-Clip attachment that supports both belt carry and clip-style inside-the-waistband carry. The G-Clip is also configurable for vertical, horizontal, or diagonally canted carry and can be attached to both faces of the symmetrical sheath.
