The Spyderco Vagabond is designed for the wanderer. If you backpack, camp or picnic, chances are you've at some point needed a lightweight fixed-blade. The strong point of a fixed-blade knife is that they are manufactured from a single piece of steel with no folding parts to fail or break- ideal for use outdoors. A fixed-blade's weak point is they require a separate carry sheath for safe transport. The Vagabond's unique plastic sheath is made from part of the underside of the handle. A plastic cover pivots out/upward, snapping-over and safely covering the cutting edge eliminating the need for a bulky carrying sheath.

Sized to toss in a backpack or picnic basket, the FB12 is 7-7/8 inches (200mm) long tip to toe. Its blade is 3-1/8 inches (79mm) of AUS-6 stainless steel honed in a PlainEdge configuration, then ground-flat on both sides creating a powerful high-performance edge. The FRN handle is injection molded in a series of valleys and expansions providing ergonomic purchase to wrap your hand around. It comes covered with a slip-free Bi-Directional Texture pattern that latches onto your palm keeping the hand and handle connected even when wet or cold. A generously sized >lanyard hole allows a cord or thong to be strung through the handle for security around water, in deep brush or attaching the knife to a pack, basket or duffle.  DISCONTINUED.
