Spyderco's Sage Series is a family of knives that showcases the innovative lock mechanisms that have helped define modern folding knife technology. The latest addition to this unique series is the Sage 5, which highlights Spyderco's own patented Compression Lock mechanism. This groundbreaking lock uses a split liner in one of the handle scales to engage an upward-facing ramp on the tang of the blade. There the liner is compressed between the blade ramp and the stop pin. In addition to being substantially stronger than an ordinary liner lock mechanism, the Compression Lock also allows the knife to be safely closed with only one hand without placing your fingers in the path of the edge.
Nestled within a stunning handle featuring peel-ply textured carbon fiber/G10 laminate scales, the Compression Lock is paired with a full-flat-ground leaf-shaped blade crafted from premium CPM S30V particle metallurgy stainless steel. The PlainEdge blade includes Spyderco's trademark Round Hole for quick, positive, one-handed opening with either hand. In that same spirit, the Sage 5's handle features a reversible deep-pocket wire clip that provides discreet left or right-side tip-up carry.
Spyderco donates a portion of the proceeds from the sale of every Sage Series folder to the Alzheimer's Association, Colorado Chapter. This association is the leading voluntary health organization in Alzheimer care, support and research.
