Blade Thickness: 0.14 (3.5 mm). Cutting Edge: 3.89 (99 mm). Weight: 6.3 oz (179 g). Sheath: Proficient WITH Leather Sheath-Plain Edge. The Spyderco Proficient takes the concept of the traditional do-all bushcraft knife and elevates it to new levels of performance with state-of-the art materials and manufacturing methods.Designed by wilderness expert Chris Claycomb of Bushcraft UK, the Proficient functions perfectly with traditional bushcraft skills and cutting methods while offering superior durability, edge retention, cutting performance, and corrosion resistance. Instead of traditional carbon steel and an axe-like Scandi (Scandinavian) grind, the Proficients blade is crafted from vanadium-rich CPM® S90V particle-metallurgy stainless steel and boasts a full-flat grind for low-friction cutting performance. The scales of its full-tang handle are painstakingly machined from solid carbon fiber. They are then carefully contoured and polished to eliminate hot spots and ensure maximum comfort during prolonged use.
A lined lanyard hole allows for easy attachment of a lanyard, wrist strap, or security cord and along with two blind stainless steel bolts permanently secures the scales to the tang. The Proficients only bow to tradition is its handsomely crafted leather pouch-style sheath configured for convenient belt carry.One-hand opening, serrations on a folder and a clip to attach a knife to a pocket. Spyderco is definitely out of the norm in the knife industry in there dedication to researching and developing fresh, improved and better performing materials all with function and reliability being key.
