Designed by noted German knifemaker Ulrich Hennicke, the Opus is a versatile, all-purpose folding knife that harmoniously balances Hennicke’s distinctive personal design style and Spyderco’s unmistakably classic lines. Its broad, PlainEdge™ blade is crafted from premium CPM® S30V® particle metallurgy stainless steel and features a full-flat grind that offers both strength and low-friction cutting performance. The blade’s oversized Trademark Round Hole™ is fully accessible with either hand and allows quick, positive one-handed opening. An impressive blend of style and function, the handle’s advanced ergonomic design and textured G-10 scales support a variety of grip styles and ensure superior control and comfort, even during prolonged use. Its open-backed construction and skeletonized full stainless steel liners keep the knife’s weight to a minimum while providing a sturdy foundation for the high-strength LinerLock mechanism. To allow convenient carry and keep the knife poised for immediate access, the Opus features a four-position hourglass clip that supports both left and right-side tip-up and tip-down carry.
