Spyderco: Techno 2 - Marcin Slysz Titanium Framelock - CTS-XHP - C158TIP2
The Spyderco Techno 2 is the next generation of the iconic original, equipped with a sheepsfoot blade and standoff construction which replace the original’s drop point blade and backspacer. The Techno 2 is part of Spyderco’s category of “Little Big Knives,” which means that it features a compact blade and handle, but has a heavy-duty locking mechanism, premium steel in the blade, and vault like construction commonly found on larger hard-use knives.
Designed by Polish custom knife maker Marcin Slysz, the first generation Techno model had tremendous strength and utility in an extremely compact package. The Techno 2 is a true successor that continues this trend but has even greater functionality and ease of maintenance than the original Techno with an added level of flare.
The blade for this knife is crafted from 3.5mm-thick CTS®XHP stainless steel. The high saber grind of the stonewashed-finished blade helps to maintain strength and ensure superior edge geometry, promoting low-friction cutting performance. Textured grooves (jimping) on the thumb ramp give the user maximum control during use.
Constructed with two solid titanium scales machined to precision from 6AL-4V titanium, the Techno 2 handle has an appealing stonewashed matte finish and a generously sized lanyard hole. A reversible deep carry pocket clip finishes off this solid, handsome, Slysz design.
Spyderco's commitment to designing and manufacturing high quality, high-performance knives includes relentless testing for quality. From edge retention via a CATRA machine, to a Q-Fog machine that tests for rust, to tests that check for wear and heat-treatment, Spyderco consistently provides quality products.
Spyderco has stuck by their commitment to producing quality knives and earned a well-deserved reputation for performance and consistency, all of which come to fruition in the Techno 2. You will instantly love carrying this knife.
