C06TIP: Tusk Marlin Spike Folding Knife
The Tusk is both a state-of the art mariner's tool and part of Spyderco's history. The original design dates back to the early days of Spyderco's beginning with Sal Glesser's desire to produce a high performance mariner's tool. The technology at the time was not available for the visionary concept. That's all changed today, redesigned by Sal's son Eric Glesser more than 25 years later has brought to light the original Tusk with new modern twists. Made from all highly rust resistant materials the Tusk features a blade made from LC 200 N and full titanium scales including a Chris Reeve Integral Lock. The 300-series stainless steel marlinspike has round-to-square cross section to loosen knots efficiently with a high strength Ball Bearing Lock made with a ceramic ball bearing. The marlinspike includes one small sized shackle key in the marlinspike and another lager shackle key created when the marlinspike is closed. Both can effectively manage many different sized and types of shackles. Reversible Clip carry and lanyard hole give a variety of carry options. Thankfully, echnology caught up with Spyderco's early vision and the Tusk's time is now.
I have to say that despite trepidations of ordering online, my transaction with Oso Grande was absolutely flawless. I emailed Oso Grande about a knife availability and promptly got a response within hours. I proceeded to call and place my order over the phone. A follow up "thank you" email and tracking email was sent to me straight away and the knife, a Spyderco Delica 4 Titanium/Damascus showed up perfectly. Overall, I would be happy to recommend and order from Oso Grande again.
