The Spyderco Amalgam is a solid pocket knife, designed by a young student named Brian Lai. With a blade length of 9.7 cm this is one of the largest Spyderco's in our range. It is therefore not that surprising that the Amalgam was made to be used. The ergonomic handle is enhanced with multiple finger grooves to make sure the knife doesn't slip from your hand while you use it. The G10 handle is enhanced with a thin layer of carbon fibre which has a light texture. As such you benefit from the strength of the G10, but are still left with the stunning look and feel of the carbon fibre. For the Amalgam Spyderco choose CPM S30V steel. A robust and stainless type of steel that can handle its own.
The Spyderco Amalgam is enhanced with the incredibly popular Compression Lock. This lock became famous because of the Paramilitary 2 models. It works as sort of a reverse linerlock. The controls are on the spine of the handle. The way it locks is also different. A linerlock, for instance, only falls against the blade. The lockbar of a Compression Lock falls into the cut-out in the blade and gets caught in between the blade and stop pin. As a result this lock is one of the strongest on the market.
