Autonomy – G10 Automatic w/Safety – ButtonLock Folder
Spyderco Autonomy (C165) Automatic Folder w/Safety …
The Spyderco Autonomy was developed in response to a request from the U.S. Coast Guard for a cutting tool that would meet the demanding mission requirements of their rescue swimmers. They needed a high-performance knife that could be easily deployed with only one hand while wearing heavy gloves, is impervious to salt water, could be easily maintained and, above all, would cut with extreme authority. Because many of the features were so revolutionary, Spyderco decided to create a version with a safety and CarryClip which appeals to everyday (EDC) users. H-1 corrosion resistant blade steel and textured G10 handle scales make this folder an all-purpose tool regardless of weather, temperature, water, rescue or emergency. Made in the USA!

Spyderco was founded in 1976 by Sal and Gail Glesser. In 1981, the Glessers put down roots in Golden, Colorado and introduced the first Spyderco folding knife. That knife pioneered the concept of a round hole in the blade for one-handed opening, a clip on the handle for carry at the top of the pocket, and the option of a serrated edge for aggressive cutting performance. Since then, Spyderco has steadily grown to become one of the leaders in the cutlery industry. In addition to a worldwide distribution network and manufacturing resources in the U.S., Japan, Taiwan, Italy, and China.
