Spyderco Massad Ayoob SPRINT RUN C60GSGY – Satin Fully Serrated CPM CRUWEAR Upswept Drop Point Blade – Gray G-10 Handle Scales – Tactical Black 4-Position Pocket Clip w/ Yellow Spyderco Logo – Lockback Manual Folding Pocket Knife w/ Round Thumb Hole | Made in Japan | Massad Ayoob
Spyderco – the thumb hole company – has been around since the 70’s, and while they were originally known for their impressive and now widely-loved Tri-Angle Sharpmaker, the Golden, Colorado-based company now produces a wide range of unique and dependable knives that you’ll love to carry every day. Since their first folding knife, the C01 Worker in 1981, Spyderco has defined innovation in the knife industry, paving the way for new concepts with many of their models over the years. From using high-grade (and often hard to find on the mainstream market) materials, Spyderco is beloved by many. Many of their models have an odd design at first sight, but their differences are what make them such a powerful and reliable daily carry. Nearly every one of the Spyderco models that has come through Sawyer River has impressed us and met the checklist as an EDC knife. The US-based company produces high-grade pocket knives un the USA, Japan, Taiwan, Italy, and China, surely having a model that will fit both your style as well as your budget. Spyderco is one of our biggest knife brands here at SRKT – when it comes to selection – so if there is something you are looking for that is not on the website, send us an email, as we may have it in person, but not on the website yet.
Originally introduced in 2001, the firearms-expert Massad Ayoob designed Ayoob folding knife features an extreme angle of the handle to the blade. The reasoning behind this unique knife shape is explained by Ayoob: “With a typical knife, thrusting lifts the blade’s point above the line of the forearm, like a boat prow going through water. The faster, harder or more resistance encountered, the higher the prow rises deviating the blade off course from its original target which can mitigate the depth of the cut and can cause the blade to literally ‘skid’ when a resistant surface is hit.” The Ayoob folder looks to avoid this issue as the heavy upsweep of the blade allows it to continue through its path when meeting resistance, rather than skidding, as aforementioned. Additionally, the strong blade-handle angle helps this knife open quicker, as the opening arc is shortened. Coming equipped with a super-strong and reliable lock back mechanism, the Massad Ayoob may look dangerous (and it can be), but is a joy to carry, is easy to use, and is much safer during use than you would expect at first glance. A very unique overall shape that is bound to catch the eye of anyone around you during use, the Massad Ayoob designed folders are something to behold.
This Spyderco – Massad Ayoob is the 2022 Sprint Run version, coming with gray G-10 handle scales and a fully serrated blade made with highly tough and edge retaining CPM CRUWEAR steel. The liners are skeletonized stainless steel, and the super-versatile 4-position pocket clip is coated black and has a yellow colored Spyderco logo. The rest of the hardware, including the lock back, are finished stainless. Grab one of these sprint runs before they run out!
Please research and be aware of your local knife laws before purchasing and carrying a pocket knife.
