Sage2 Titanium PlainEdge Knife

The Sage series represents Spyderco’s 30-year pledge to knife crafting and innovation. It consists of an ongoing series of identical designs featuring different, ingenious lock mechanisms. This model (Sage-2) honors knifemaker Chris Reeve’s contribution to the knife industry with his creation of the Reeve Integral Lock (R.I.L.). Its flat-ground blade is ground from premium CPM-S30V stainless steel. It is paired with a handle constructed of solid titanium scales that also provide the foundation of the R.I.L. lock mechanism. This exceptional design fits the hand perfectly, offering superior control and cutting performance. A reversible silhouette wire pocket clip supports left or right-hand tip-up carry and Spyderco’s Trademark Round Hole ensures positive, ambidextrous, one-handed blade opening. The second in the Sage series, this distinctive design provides exceptional performance and strength.The first Sage knife recognized knifemaker Michael Walker’s creation of the LinerLock, which offered a ball-bearing detent method of keeping a folding knife closed. The Sage2 focuses on prime mover Chris Reeve’s embellishment of the original Walker LinerLock, which he morphed into the Reeve Integral Lock (RIL). The modification uses the handle scale as the lock’s liner. With the back portion of the handle doubling as both handle spring and lock, the knife no longer needs an internal liner, meaning the knife can be manufactured lighter and slimmer without sacrificing strength.

The Sage2 also includes a spear-point blade made of CPM-S30V steel, with a flat-ground edge that pays tribute to Spyderco’s Caly3 and Native models in shape and function. The screw-constructed titanium handle is also sturdy, with interior phosphor bronze washers ensuring a smooth opening and closing. The Sage concludes with a silhouette wire pocket clip that adjusts for left- or right-hand carry.

Spyderco donates approximately five percent of sales of each Sage to the National Alzheimer’s Association Denver, Colorado chapter.

  3. top quality materials, simple construction This is a great knife if you’re looking for top-quality metals and elegantly simple construction. Thick titanium and good steel held together by three removable pillars. The back is open and the construction is flow-through so a quick rinse under the tap will clean out the dust and grime. No springs, no closed back, not much that can get gummed up or fail. One warning: the first “new” knife I received from Amazon was actually a used one, the little sealed internal pouch had been opened (and was…
