“I bought it because I saw it being used by the captain of a certain video site "Kenbotai". When fishing in the sea, the cheap knife (which still costs $20) that I have been using for a long time will always rust somewhere even if I wash it with water every time, and after a few years, it will be a miserable figure. It was. However, this knife is true. It's been three years now, but without sharpening, the sharpness hasn't changed and it hasn't rusted. I feel that it is very good for costa. Also, when I learn that the essential blade part is a business of Seki City, Gifu Prefecture, I feel even more attached. It's a good knife.”

When you grasp it, your thumb naturally hits the back of the thumb hole, making it easy to apply force and stabilizing even when working with force such as scraping wood or synthetic resin. Designed by Spyderco of the United States and manufactured by Gerber Seki, a Japanese knife maker. A small practical product with excellent ideas made in high quality.”

“If you put it on your desk, you can use it for opening mail, cutting clothes, and other small things. The blade is shorter than scissors, so it is easy to handle.”

“Also, regarding steel, it is not a good steel, so it will dull as soon as the blade hits a hard object.”

“It's a small knife, so I don't think there are many people who do it, but it seems that it is not suitable for handling large fish or opening cans.”

Spyderco St. Fante3 Straight Blade

Zytel is used for the handle. Two grooves are carved and a platinum Spyderco spider mark is attached to the rear. The stainless steel middle plate embedded inside one side of the handle increases the strength. The blade lock is a back-stop type in the center. There is a dent in the holding part to prevent the lock from being released due to pressure on the palm during work. In addition, I think it's a good knife that has both a good-looking (for me) classic feel and modern features.

“Even if you hold a string or vinyl with one hand, you can open and close it with one hand to cut it.”

“Since the clip is light and tight, it does not come off the pocket due to the inertia of movement and there is no sense of discomfort in weight.”

“It's sharp, it's rock tight, it doesn't rattle at all, and it's a good knife that has a good-looking (for me) classic feel and modern features.”


Spyderco Police Stainless Straight Blade
