Spyderco 2016 Production Sample – Peter Carey Rubicon G10/CF

The Rubicon has gotten a diet, this G10/CF version is definitely more pocket-friendly than the first version. The handle scales are flat and the knife’s handle has been ‘dehorned’ to make it much easier to carry and draw. The handle’s surface still offered some grip, kind of like a smoother peelply finish. Still, I’d like to see the jimping on the spine to be a bit sharper, but it’s the same finish as was used on the original Spyderco Rubicon.

  1. if this has ball bearings, it’s gonna be a buy.

    It seems that your images are too over exposed. There should be a better contrast between the blade and the background. Maybe your lighting is too harsh?

    • That could very well be the case, I’m just an amateur. Also, there’s not much time to change lights/set-up when you’re shooting 70 new knives that float by a portable photo studio, while many knifeknuts eagerly wait until you’re done so they can have another look at the knife. That’s why I shoot everything in the same set-up, to go for the best average picture quality. Still, I keep trying new techniques and equipment. Maybe I’ll manage to fix this problem at next year’s meet.
