Technical Specs

Spyderco Bill Moran Drop-Point Black Blade

Bill Moran is heralded as the father of modern Damascus steel forging and founder of the American Bladesmith's Society.  During his retirement years, Bill Moran collaborated with Spyderco on a fixed blade design that continues as a top seller even now in 2011, four-years after Bill's passing in 2007.

Categorized as a mid-sized blade, the Moran is a true workhorse designed for cutting performance with a drop-point VG-10 stainless steel blade coated in non-reflective black carbon nitride.  The blade is flat-ground with an arcing belly, ending with just enough tip-point for detailed cutting and caping.  The FRN (fiberglass reinforced nylon) handle is inlayed on both sides with Krayton insets offering a rubbery texture that eliminates slipping while keeping the knife secure in the hand, even if that hand is  wet, cold or gloved. 

Boltaron belt sheath with multi-positional G-Clip rides comfortably and conveniently on a belt or pack.
