Spyderco 2012 Prototype Video – Marcin Slysz Techno

One of my favorites of the Spyderco Prototypes this year, the Techno designed by Marcin Slysz. Eric Glesser gives a quick tour of this upcoming Spydie at the showfloor of the IWA in Nuremberg, Germany.

Spyderco 2012 Prototype – Marcin Slysz Techno

March 8, 2012

Last year’s Techno was the custom knife by Marcin Slysz, this proto has been ‘spyderized’. The Techno was one of my favorites at the meet. The stubby thick little folder handled very nicely. It’s kind of like my Ti Salsa, but leaner and tougher. The knife locked up very nicely and the action was very smooth. The blade was surprisingly thick, but the full flat grind should make it a good cutter. The blue spacer makes for a nice surprise, on an otherwise ‘plain’ looking titanium integral locking folder.  This one is high on my wishlist!


Spyderco 2011 Prototype – Techno

The Techno is a little tank-like folder reminiscent of the Leafstorm. Just because the folder is short, is no reason for it not to be built like a tank. The ergos were nice. I do hope the production model will have a polished blade, rather than the bead blasted blade on this prototype. I’d also prefer a tip-up option for the clip.
