  1. Presseinfo: Spyderco Serrata - cast 440C steel

    Spyderco Serrata ~ FB32G

    The Serrata was designed by custom knifemaker Stuart Ackerman. Currently living in New Zealand, Ackerman is a native of South Africa and a veteran of combat service in Namibia and Angola. During his time as an infantry soldier, he learned a lot about what a survival knife really needs to do. That experience, along with his natural fascination with knives, both inspired and guided his efforts as a knifemaker and designer.

    Ackerman designed the Serrata as the consummate utility cutting tool. It combines the familiar look and versatility of a kitchen knife with an ergonomic handle that offers hands of all sizes comfort and control no matter how it is gripped. The blade’s full-flat grind and distal taper allow it to have a thick spine for strength, yet still provide low-friction cutting performance and excellent point utility. In Ackerman’s words, “Hold a Serrata edge up, edge down, reverse grip, you name it, and it feels like it belongs.”

    The Serrata is unique because its blade is made of cast 440C steel. This process involves making a wax model of the blade and then encasing the wax in a mold. When the mold is heated, the wax melts and leaves a cavity in the mold shaped exactly like the wax blade. Molten steel is then poured into the mold to create a pre-shaped blade, which is then heat treated, ground, and polished.

    Unlike traditional rolled steel, cast steel creates a dendritic (“fern-like”) crystalline structure. Pioneered by knifemaker David Boye in 1981, this process infuses microscopic crystals into the steel that create microserrations along the edge. These microserrations increase the blade’s “bite” into the material being cut and enable it to retain its sharpness significantly longer than traditional steels. The crystal structure of dendritic steel gives its surface a distinctive look that sometimes includes minor pits created during the casting process. It also makes it somewhat more susceptible to minor surface scratches. These characteristics are completely normal and are part of the character of this G-10.

    The Serrata features a plain-edged, full-flat-ground blade and full-tang construction. Its black G-10 handle scales are secured by stainless steel cutler’s bolts and meticulously contoured to provide a hand-filling grip devoid of hot spots. The heel of the edge (the area closest to the handle) is also purposely blunted to provide an extra measure of safety during use.

    To protect the blade when not in use and allow convenient carry of the Serrata, it comes with a custom-molded Boltaron® sheath. The mouth of the sheath provides a snap fit around the forward portion of the knife’s handle to retain it securely during vigorous activity. A G-Clip allows the sheath to be carried on the belt or clipped to clothing in a variety of different positions. The symmetrical design of the sheath also allows the G-Clip to be attached to either ...
  2. Presseinfo Spyderco C188ALTIP DOG TAG

    Serge Panchenko - Spyderco Dog Tag Folder

    Serge Panchenko was born in the Ukraine and immigrated to the United States with his family when he was eight years old. A natural tinkerer with a passion for working with his hands, he began making knives in 2007 shortly after attending his first knife show.

    Panchenko makes all types and styles of custom knives and strives to make each one a perfect balance of artistic expression and practical function. In addition to hand-crafted, one-at-a-time custom knives, he also makes handmade lanterns, beads, and other items, as well as “mid-tech” knife designs that combine partially finished, custom-machined parts with his hand-finished attention to detail. One of his most popular mid-tech designs is the Dog Tag folder—a small but amazingly capable folding knife that is the shape of a military dog tag when closed. Since Spyderco specializes in uniquely functional compact cutting tools, the Dog Tag Folder was a natural choice for a collaborative effort with Panchenko.

    The Dog Tag Folder is a unique departure from Spyderco’s typical folding knife construction methods. Its single-sided handle is fabricated from solid titanium and accurately replicates the size and shape of a military dog tag. The center of the handle scale is machined to create an integral spring bar that houses a steel ball bearing for the blade’s detent mechanism. At the top of the handle is a titanium back strap that defines the blade’s limits of travel in both the open and closed positions and provides protection from the edge when the knife is closed.

    • length overall 3.23" (82 mm)
    • length closed 2" (51 mm)
    • blade length 1.23" (31 mm)
    • cutting edge 1.14" (29 mm)
    • blade thickness 0.118" (3.0 mm)
    • blade steel CPM S30V
    • weight 0.9 oz (26 g)
    • handle material Titanium



    The “business end” of the Dog Tag is a sheepfoot-style blade made from premium CPM® S30V® particle metallurgy stainless steel. To protect the edge when closed, the blade is chisel ground with a single flat bevel on the front side—an unusual feature for a Spyderco knife. Our Trademark Round Hole™ in the blade allows easy opening, and a subtle swedge (unsharpened bevel) and a decorative fuller (groove) near the spine add a touch of style. The blade’s pivot is also accentuated by a round titanium disk that provides stability and structural strength as well as an aesthetic touch.

    A non-locking folder, the Dog Tag’s blade is held in place in the open position by a detent mechanism. A ball bearing in the handle scale’s integral spring arm indexes holes in the tang of the blade to hold it both closed and open. Since the blade does not lock, care should be taken during use to apply cutting pressure only in a direction that maintains the knife’s open position.

    Released in 2014, the Dog Tag is available ...

    Spyderco - Karahawk™ CQI - Constant Quality Improvement

    To make these specialized tactics even more effective, the Karahawk now features a reinforced ring. A layer of G-10 has been added between the handle’s stainless steel liners to strengthen the structure and provide increased surface area. The internal corners of the ring’s hole have also been radiused to eliminate square edges and ensure smooth, comfortable manipulation.
