Scorpius™ Stainless Steel
The Scorpius was designed under the premise: form follows function- not looks, which offers explanation for its distinctive appearance. Spyderco's Eric Glesser blueprinted it as an urban tactical utility knife. For city carry he felt it had to be ergonomically refined and sized so it wouldn't generate adverse reaction or legal issues when taken out and used in public. He also felt the knife should be uncommonly comfortable in the hand and effectively cut anything put to it.
This one fits like a glove and cuts like a demon. The wavy contours covering the handle, position the index and middle fingers in such a way they eliminate forward or backward slipping. Narrowing to a tail, the end of the handle makes an effective tool for impact purposes or as a non-lethal control devise. Pre-tapped screw-holes let you attach the knife's custom-designed clip, positioning tip-up or tip-down in the pocket. The blade is a hybrid combination of an upswept and clip-point profile. Its three inches long, hollow-ground and made of VG-10 steel. Ground from the top of the blade is a false-edge swedge that removes unnecessary weight from the folder and gives it a streamlined appearance. Drilled to 14mm in diameter the Spyderco Round Hole is suitably sized for opening with large or gloved hands.
