Spyderco byte July 2022 - DESIGNER SPOTLIGHT: FRED PERRIN
Fred Perrin is a name that should be familiar to all savvy knife enthusiasts. Widely regarded as France’s most revered maker of handmade tactical knives, his innovative design style has also had far-reaching impact on both custom and factory-made knives worldwide.
In addition to his talents as a knifemaker and bladesmith, Perrin is one of Europe’s most in-demand instructors of both practical self-defense and mission-specific military combative skills—including knife tactics. Those skills, along with a lifetime of experience as a tradesman and knife user, have given him an exceptional insight into functional knife design.

One such figure is French custom knifemaker Fred Perrin. His signature handle designs pioneered the use of index-finger holes and deep forefinger choils more than 25 years ago and have had a profound impact on the form and function of modern knives. They have also made him one of Spyderco’s most popular and enduring collaborative designers.

Extrema Ratio Presents The New K-Talon
K-Talon is a fixed-blade karambit with a full-tang structure. It has a particularly thin shape with an overall thickness of 10 mm. The curved and hooked blade was inspired by the shape of a talon.
It is designed to make clear and deep cuts as well as to hook, seize and/or tear. The ring in the back is built to gain a safe and firm grip in every situation. This way the knife does not slip and it makes it extremely difficult to disarm and point at the user.
The very thin Kydex sheath has a quick release system and comes with a paracord that allows it to be worn as a neck knife and to be attached to the M.O.L.L.E. system.
It can be also attached to the following optional accessories:
Spyderco byte May 2022 - EDGE-U-CATION - Meet H-2
Since its introduction in 2003, Spyderco’s best-selling Salt® Series has set the standard in ultra-corrosion-resistant cutting tools. The key component of that series was H-1, a remarkable blade material that offers an exceptional balance of cutting performance and extreme corrosion resistance. Although H-1 was later joined by other steels that are also incredibly resistant to rust, it remained the primary blade material of our Salt Series—until now.
It is no secret that the COVID-19 pandemic has had far-reaching impact on all aspects of the world’s industry and economy. As the third largest steel producer in the world, Japan has been particularly hard hit and has been...

Spyderco byte February 2022 - EDUCATION: Changing the Position of Your Clip
When Spyderco co-founder Sal Glesser first put a clip on a folding knife over four decades ago, he revolutionized the form of the modern pocketknife and set a standard that still endures today. However, he and Spyderco didn’t stop there. From the original stainless steel handles and single-position clips, our knives and pocket clips have evolved to offer many more options and much greater versatility. Most Spyderco knives now have adjustable clips that allow you to configure them for different carry positions. Some are adjustable for left or right-side tip-up carry, while others offer the flexibility of four-position carry: tip-up or tip-down on both the left...
Spyderco byte February 2022 - FEATURED PRODUCT: PERSISTANCE lightweight
MSRP: $66.00 - $71.50
Since we made our first groundbreaking CLIPIT® knife more than 40 years ago, Spyderco’s focus has always been to make the absolute best cutting tools possible. We know that serious knife users appreciate quality and performance and are willing to invest in premium products. However, we also understand that becoming a serious knife user is a process. We all have to start somewhere, and until we have enough experience to appreciate quality, that typically means starting with lower-priced knives. For that reason, we created Spyderco’s Value Folders.
The goal of the Value Folder family...

Spyderco byte December 2021 - PROPER USE OF THE EMERSON OPENER
Unlike conventional one-hand-opening folding knives or even automatic knives, which allow the blade to be opened quickly after the knife is drawn, the Emerson Opener deploys the blade as it clears the pocket and is therefore the fastest opening method available. Achieving that speed, however, still requires proper carry and good technique.
Like learning any new skill, it’s best to start off slowly. If possible, use a trainer version of your Emerson Opener knife at first and then progress to a live blade when you feel you’re ready. To prevent property damage or injury to others, always ensure that the area around you is clear of people and obstructions before...

Ernest Emerson has had a profound impact on the cutlery industry and both the form and function of the modern tactical folding knife. Although the scope of his influence is extremely broad, perhaps his most revolutionary innovation was the “Emerson Opener.” Also known as the “Wave-Shaped Feature” or more colloquially—and inaccurately—the “Wave,” it consists of a small integral hook on the spine of a folding knife blade. When the closed knife is carried tip-up and drawn from the pocket, the hook snags on...
