Designed from the ground up as a practical, versatile working knife, the Amalgam combines all the advantages of Spyderco’s Compression Lock® mechanism, a fully accessible Trademark Round Hole™, and a flipper opener into one synergistic package.
The Mechanical Engineering student and knife enthusiast named Brian Lai, the Amalgam features a broad, drop-point blade crafted from American-made CPM® S30V® stainless steel. The PlainEdge™ blade is full-flat ground for exceptional edge geometry and showcases a beautiful satin finish.
It also rides on special low-friction ball-bearing washers that give it an incredibly smooth action and help ensure swift, positive, one-handed opening with either its index-finger flipper or its Round Hole. The blade’s flipper also serves as a highly functional lower guard in the open position. The Amalgam’s handle features skeletonized stainless steel liners nested into textured carbon fiber/G-10 laminate scales.
This keeps the ergonomic handle slim and pocket friendly and complements its open-backed construction to minimize the knife’s overall weight and accentuate its balance. A four-position clip and lined lanyard hole support all possible carry preferences and allow the Amalgam to be brought into action quickly and positively with either hand.
