Spyderco 2014 Production Sample – Peter Carey Rubicon

The Peter Carey Rubicon was just a beautiful custom folder….made by Spyderco. I’m not a big custom knife expert, but this knife had me do a double take to make sure this wasn’t the original custom knife, being used as a concept model.  The Rubicon pictured here was a production sample.

I remember it being a solid feeling folder, without it being too heavy. The lines of this flipper design were very striking, with an orange G-10 accent around the pivot and an orange G-10 spacer.  The handle was made of full carbon fiber scales that were rounded for a more 3D ergonomic grip.

The approximate specifications of the Rubicon are:

Overall Length:  19 cm / 7.48 inches
Edge Length: 7,5 cm / 2.95 inches
Blade Length: 7,8 cm / 3.07 inches
Blade Thickness: 0,35 cm / 0.14 inches
