Spyderco Roadie

SPY-C189P Black

Unlike traditional penknives, the Roadie features a subtle index-finger choil that increases control of the knife during use and acts as a safeguard against unintentional closure. These enhanced features elevate the Roadie far beyond the conventional penknife and set a new standard in socially friendly cutting tools.

The business end of the Roadie is a sheepfoot-style blade ground from Böhler-Uddeholm N690Co steel, high-performance stainless steel alloyed with cobalt, molybdenum, and vanadium. Its wide blade profile and full-flat grind create incredible edge geometry for a keen, scalpel-sharp edge. The broad blade also provides real estate for the distinctive "Double Dent" feature that allows the blade to be easily opened with a thumb and index finger's pinch grip.

Although not intended as an opening feature, a Trademark Round Hole™ in the blade proudly identifies the Roadie as a Spyderco product. At the base of the blade near its juncture with the handle, there is a subtle forefinger choil (finger groove). Placing your index finger on the choil provides excellent control of the edge and creates a natural "stop" to help prevent the knife from closing unintentionally.

Unlike a traditional slipjoint, the Roadie's blade is held open by an improved notched-joint mechanism. Its spring also forms the handle's full-length back strap, giving it structural strength and providing a foundation for the durable fibreglass-reinforced-nylon (FRN) scales. The injection-moulded scales are contoured for comfort and feature a recessed Spyderco "bug" logo on both sides. The Roadie represents a quantum leap in the evolution of modern pocketknife design and sets a new standard of excellence for the breed.
