Designed specifically for budget-conscious knife users, the Spyderco Polestar is hands down one of the best values on the market. Inspired by the design of the best-selling byrd® Raven™ 2, it is also a shining example of “reverse evolution” in the Spyderco product line.
The Polestar’s leaf-shaped blade is crafted from American-made CTS® BD1 stainless steel and features a fully accessible Trademark Round Hole™ for quick, ambidextrous, one-hand opening. Its full-flat grind, PlainEdge™ cutting edge, and distal taper give it an exceptional combination of edge geometry, point utility, and low-friction cutting performance. Unlike the Raven 2, its edge extends the full length of the blade and does not include an index-finger choil. This maximizes the usable length of the cutting edge and allows powerful cuts with the heel of the blade.
The Polestar’s lightweight, ergonomic, open-backed handle features full, skeletonized stainless steel liners that provide outstanding structural strength and form the foundation of a stout LinerLock mechanism. To ensure a secure, hand-filling grip, the liners are capped with non-slip, textured gray G-10 scales. A strategically placed relief cut in the obverse side scale allows easy release of the lock mechanism and makes the one-handed operation of the knife simple and intuitive. The handle also includes a four-position hourglass clip with a broad, triangular base that offers a choice of tip-up or tip-down carry on either side of the body.
Boasting all the defining qualities of a Spyderco knife in a wallet-friendly package, the Polestar sets a new standard in affordable high performance.
