Spyderco Dog Tag Folder CF/G-10 Laminate Black Knife
The Spyderco Dog Tag Folder CF/G-10 Laminate Black Knife is built with a single-sided handle and is fabricated from solid titanium and is meant to replicate the size and shape of a military dog tag. The center of the handle scale is machined to create an integral spring bar that houses a steel ball bearing for the blade's detent mechanism. At the top of the handle is an aluminum back strap that defines the blade's limits of travel in both the open and closed positions and provides protection from the edge when the knife is closed.
The blade is a sheepfoot-style blade made from premium CPM S30V particle metallurgy stainless steel with a stonewashed finish. The blade is chisel ground with a single flat bevel on the front side. This is utilized to protect the blades edge. The blade's pivot is also accentuated by a round aluminum disk that provides stability and structural strength as well as an aesthetic touch.
A non-locking folder, the Dog Tag's blade is held in place in the open position by a detent mechanism. A ball bearing in the handle scale's integral spring arm indexes holes in the tang of the blade to hold it both closed and open. Since the blade does not lock, care should be taken during use to apply cutting pressure only in a direction that maintains the knife's open position.
This version of the Dog Tag features a handle machined from a solid piece of black carbon fiber/G-10 laminate with an inlaid detent spring arm. The blade and all metal hardware have a matching black titanium carbonitride coating.
