Farid Mehr is a British custom knifemaker best known for his heavy-duty, hard-use knives. His first collaboration with Spyderco, the K2åª, is a generously sized folding knife that definitely supports the designeråÕs reputation. Just shy of 10 inches (254mm) overall, it features a 4.53-inch (115mm) blade ground from CPMå¨ 10Vå¨åÑthe first high-vanadium tool steel made using Crucibleå¨ steelåÕs Powder Metallurgy process. CPM 10VåÕs toughness and machining characteristics are comparable to D2 and M2, but itåÕs impressive 9.75% vanadium content gives it extreme wear resistance. In a knife blade, this translates to superior edge retentionåÑa highly desirable quality for a hard-use folder.
To balance the strength of its broad Bowie-style blade, the K2 features a full-flat grind that tapers over its entire width to a keen PlainEdgeåª cutting edge. The bladeåÕs spine is also precisely radiused near the handle to provide a comfortable bearing point for the thumb and a Trademark Round Holeåª ensures positive one-handed opening.
The K2åÕs handle is also a study in strength. It consists of two extremely stout scales machined from solid titanium. The reverse scale forms the foundation of the knifeåÕs sturdy Reeve Integral Lock (R.I.L.) and faithfully includes FaridåÕs signature serpentine cut on the lock bar. A stainless steel pocket clip attached near the pivot pin supports convenient right-side, tip-down carry.
SpydercoåÕs K2 combines the durability and heft that characterize Farid MehråÕs custom knives with the refined details that define SpydercoåÕs commitment to reliable high performance.
