Spyderco Tropen

Spyderco Tropen

Designed by Argentinean custom knifemaker Javier Vogt, the Tropen is an elegant synthesis of Spyderco’s Compression Lock® mechanism and three different one-hand opening options. Its broad, dramatically curved blade is full-flat ground from CPM® S30V® stainless steel.

It includes an index-finger flipper, Spyderco’s Trademark Round Hole™, and a stylized Emerson Opening Feature that can be used to automatically open the knife as it is drawn from the pocket. Together, these features support a full scope of opening techniques and are further enhanced by low-friction ball-bearing washers on each side of the blade’s pivot.

The satin-finished blade is housed in a stylish handle featuring G-10 scales, a partial G-10 backspacer, and nested skeletonized stainless steel liners. The polished scales are gently radiused for a comfortable grip, and their interiors are precision machined to house the nested liners, which form the foundation of the knife’s high-strength Compression Lock mechanism.

To ensure convenient carry and support the use of the Emerson Opening Feature, the Tropen includes a stainless steel hourglass clip configured for right-side, tip-up carry.
