Back in production for the first time in years, this version of the SpyderCo Starmate Folding Knife w/ Plain Edge and G10 Handle C55GP faithfully retains all the features the original and incorporates a number of enhanced features. Manufactured in Japan, this Knife from the experts at Spyderco features a saber-ground blade made from VG-10 stainless steel. Unlike the nested liners of the first generation, the Spyderco Starmate Knife features full skeletonized stainless steel liners for an exceptional balance of light weight and superior strength. They are capped with textured black G-10 scales that offer a slim profile and an outstanding grip. One of the distinguishing characteristics of a Bob Terzuola design is his improved Walker LinerLock mechanism, which features a concave ramp on the blade's lock face. This lock geometry, pioneered by Terzuola in his custom knives, provides greater strength and security than conventional flat lock ramps and is proudly featured in the Starmate. To ensure convenient, versatile carry, this Spyder Co Knife also features a new four-position clip with a broad triangular base for security and extreme strength. The new clip can be easily configured for tip-up or tip-down carry on either side of the body, allowing you to tune your carry to meet your personal needs and preferences. The SpyderCo Starmate Folding Stainless Steel G10 Knife is a reflection of our rich collaborative history with one of knifemaking's most talented and innovative craftsmen.
