Video: Spyderco 2016 Production Sample – Peter Carey Rubicon G10/CF

March 22, 2016

Click here for a more detailed look at the Spyderco Peter Carey Rubicon G10/CF production sample.

Last February, Spyderco organized the 12th annual ‘Amsterdam Meet’ in, you guessed it, Amsterdam the Netherlands. During the meet, Spyderco’s Eric Glesser presented many new concept models, prototypes and production samples that Spyderco is working on. Around 80 knifeknuts attended meet and they were asked for feedback and opinions on the new designs.

This year, we used a live videolink to a big screen, so the entire audience could get a closer look at the various details of the knife during Eric’s presentation. This clip is taken from that videolink. I hope you understand that this was not a purpose-made video presentation, but rather a taped portion of a live presentation. Nevertheless this video offers a nice first look at a new Spyderco design and its backstory.

Spyderco 2016 Production Sample – Peter Carey Rubicon G10/CF

March 11, 2016

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.
