Spyderco Roadie (C189) PocketKnife …
The Roadie represents a quantum leap in the evolution of modern pocketknife design. It’s most distinguishing characteristic”theœDouble Dentâ„¢”is a pair of symmetrical dimples in the blade that provide a solid purchase for a fingernail-free two-handed opening. Far superior to a traditional nail nick, they also do not collect dirt or debris.
The Roadie also features a subtle index-finger choil that increases control of the knife during use and acts as a safeguard against unintentional closure. The Roadie is a sheepfoot-style blade ground from BÃ¶hler-Uddeholm N690Co steel, a high-performance stainless steel. Its wide blade profile and full-flat grind create incredible edge geometry for a keen, scalpel-sharp edge.

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.
