C185TIP: Farid Mehr K2 Titanium Folding Knife
Spyderco Knives

The Spyderco K2 folder is Spyderco's first collaboration with Farid Mehr, a British custom knifemaker best known for his heavy-duty, hard-use knives. The K2, is a big size folding knife that definitely supports the designer's reputation. Just shy of 10 inches (254mm) overall, it features a 4.53-inch (115mm) blade ground from CPM 10V--the first high-vanadium tool steel made using Crucible steel's Powder Metallurgy process. CPM 10V's toughness and machining characteristics are comparable to D2 and M2, but it's impressive 9.75% vanadium content gives it extreme wear resistance. In a knife blade, this translates to superior edge retention--a highly desirable quality for a hard-use folder.

To balance the strength of its broad Bowie-style blade, the K2 knife features a full-flat grind that tapers over its entire width to a keen PlainEdge cutting edge. The blade's spine is also precisely radiused near the handle to provide a comfortable bearing point for the thumb and Spyderco's Trademark Round Hole ensures positive one-handed opening.

The Spyderco K2's Titanium handle is very strong. It consists of two extremely stout scales machined from solid titanium. The reverse scale forms the foundation of the knife's sturdy Reeve Integral Lock (R.I.L.) framelock and includes Farid's signature serpentine cut on the lock bar. A stainless steel pocket clip attached near the pivot pin supports convenient right-side, tip-down carry.

Spyderco's K2 combines the durability and heft that characterize Farid Mehr's custom knives with the refined details that define Spyderco's commitment to reliable high performance.

This knife is an excellent general purpose folder. The CPM 10V is very high wear resistant tool steel due to the high Vanadium content 9.75%. The edge holding capability is over 10 times that of D2 tool steel. The size and the shape of the blade make it excellent for skinning and food preparation.
