Spyderco - C204GP PattadaTM

Spyderco’s unique Ethnic Series is an ongoing project to recognize and pay tribute to the world’s distinctive ethnic knives by expressing them in modern form with the finest materials and manufacturing methods. The latest member of this elite family is the Pattada, which draws its name from the cutlery capitol of Sardinia, an autonomous region of Italy and the second largest island in the Mediterranean. Pattada is best known for its production of traditional Sardinian ethnic knives called resolzas. For generations, local artisans in Pattada have specialized in hand crafting this classic shepherd’s folding knife pattern, which features a long, narrow blade with a pronounced belly that tapers to an acute point. Resolza handles are traditionally made with genuine ram’s horn scales supported by a steel backspacer and a wraparound metal bolster that reinforces the blade’s pivot pin. Mirroring the knife’s blade, the handle shape is long and narrow, terminating with a distinctive “pinky hook” at the butt end.

Original resolza knives were true friction folders and had no springs or mechanical locking mechanisms to secure the blade in the open position. Although many resolza are still made in this way, this iconic pattern can also be found expressed as a non-locking slipjoint with a backspring in the handle and as a classic leaf-spring-powered, button-fired automatic knife. Still the everyday cutting tool of choice of the people of Sardinia, the resolza is also widely known as a “Pattada” knife because of its close association with the city where it is made.

Spyderco’s Pattada takes the classic lines and timeless styling of the original resolza and expresses them with state-of-the-art materials and manufacturing methods. Its unmistakable blade shape, characterized by a straight clip point and long curved cutting edge, is faithfully executed in Böhler-Uddeholm N690Co steel—a high-performance stainless steel alloyed with cobalt, molybdenum, and vanadium. Like the traditional version, the blade features a full-flat grind and PlainEdge™ cutting edge; however, it also includes Spyderco’s Trademark Round Hole™ for swift, positive one-handed opening.

The Pattada’s gracefully contoured handle faithfully maintains the classic lines of the original, but expresses them with high-tech modern materials. Its full stainless steel liners provide exceptional structural strength and form the foundation of the knife’s sturdy LinerLock mechanism. They are joined by stainless steel standoffs that create an open-backed construction to reduce weight and simplify cleaning. Meticulously machined G-10 scales enclose the liners and provide a contoured, extremely comfortable grip. A proud member of Spyderco’s CLIPIT™ family, the Pattada includes a deep-pocket wire clip that offers convenient tip-up access and is reversible for carry on either side of the body.

Fittingly manufactured in Maniago, Italy, Spyderco’s Pattada is an extraordinary fusion of traditional ethnic design and state-of-the-art manufacturing and materials.
