A Merry Spyderco Rubicon Christmas!

I guess I’ve been a good boy this year, as I found this Peter Carey designed Spyderco Rubicon in my (tactical!) christmas stocking this year! I never expected this at all, so that makes it twice as nice right? The knife is very impressive, kind of like sticking a custom car in your pocket. The full carbon fiber scales are 3d machined to fit the hand and the orange g10 details are extremely cool. Like the PPT, the Rubicon is more like a folder with a titanium integral lock, with some extra scales over it, rather than a typical thin liner lock folder. The Rubicon definitely is thicker than most Spyderco folders, but it is very much like a custom folder, like I noted after handling the production sample earlier this year. The Rubicon is quite the piece to proudly show off when you attack that envelope, carboard box or piece of fruit!
