Spyderco Sage 1 Cool Gray G10 Satin Maxamet Liner Lock Folder C123GPGY
A person wise in judgment and experience is considered to be a Sage, gaining this title through trial, error and growth. Spyderco’s 30-year pledge to knife crafting and learning to make better knives at every available opportunity has delivered a knife worthy of the title: The Sage. Part of an ongoing series of folders in the Prestige line, the Sage showcases a variety of different and ingenuous locking mechanisms in an exceptional design. This version comes with the Michael Walker LinerLock, flat-ground, satin finished Maxamet blade and Cool Gray G10 handle scales.
Brand new, direct from Spyderco Knives, Taiwan.
Blade: A classic leaf shaped blade is delivered in fully flat ground, satin finished Maxamet tool for excellent slicing geometry and piercing ability with exceptional edge retention. See below for more information on Maxamet. A 13 mm RoundHole provides easy ambidextrous deployment on a smooth, phosphor bronze washer pivot. For optimal safety and control during use the jimped thumb ramp and index finger choil duo are unbeatable.
Handle: Dual barrel spacers span the skeletonized stainless steel liners which support cool gray G10 handle scales. Exceptionally ergonomic in design, the handle is comfortable enough for extended daily use. One liner forms the integral Walker Liner Lock mechanism, an innovative lock from its inception that offers time-tested reliability, secure lockup and ease of operation.
Carries via a reversible, tip-up only, deep carry wire clip.
Micro-Melt Maxamet Steel: Produced by Carpenter as a high speed tool steel, Maxamet offers extremely high wear resistance with moderate toughness and a high level of hardness (67-69 Hrc). Edge retention will be very high, outdone by only a few ultra-high carbide, high hardness steels like CPM 15V and Rex 121. Novice sharpeners may have a challenging time. Care is required to prevent corrosion.
