Product Description

Product Description

The Sage series represents Spyderco’s 30-year pledge to knife crafting and innovation. It consists of an ongoing series of identical designs featuring different, ingenious lock mechanisms. This model (Sage-2) honors knifemaker Chris Reeve’s contribution to the knife industry with his creation of the Reeve Integral Lock (R.I.L.). Its flat-ground blade is ground from premium CPM-S30V stainless steel. It is paired with a handle constructed of solid titanium scales that also provide the foundation of the R.I.L. lock mechanism. This exceptional design fits the hand perfectly, offering superior control and cutting performance. A reversible silhouette wire pocket clip supports left or right-hand tip-up carry and Spyderco's Trademark Round Hole ensures positive, ambidextrous, one-handed blade opening. The second in the Sage series, this distinctive design provides exceptional performance and strength.


The first Sage knife recognized knifemaker Michael Walker's creation of the LinerLock, which offered a ball-bearing detent method of keeping a folding knife closed. The Sage2 focuses on prime mover Chris Reeve's embellishment of the original Walker LinerLock, which he morphed into the Reeve Integral Lock (RIL). The modification uses the handle scale as the lock's liner. With the back portion of the handle doubling as both handle spring and lock, the knife no longer needs an internal liner, meaning the knife can be manufactured lighter and slimmer without sacrificing strength.

The Sage2 also includes a spear-point blade made of CPM-S30V steel, with a flat-ground edge that pays tribute to Spyderco's Caly3 and Native models in shape and function. The screw-constructed titanium handle is also sturdy, with interior phosphor bronze washers ensuring a smooth opening and closing. The Sage concludes with a silhouette wire pocket clip that adjusts for left- or right-hand carry.

Spyderco donates approximately five percent of sales of each Sage to the National Alzheimer's Association Denver, Colorado chapter.

I'll start out by saying that I am a knife addict. I've bought, owned, and sold more knives then most people will probably handle in their lifetimes. That is not a good thing, just ask my wife. The reason I buy so many knives is because I am always looking for the best all around every day carry (edc) knife. I feel that the Spyderco Sage 2 is as good as it gets right now. If you start really getting into knives and reading some professional reviews you will find that most reviewers feel that the Chris Reeve's Sebenza is the Holy Grail of folding knives or is at least at the top of the pile. The Sage 2 is Spyderco's way of paying homage to the CRK integral frame lock, and it is basically a more affordable Small Sebenza 21. A small Sebenza 21 starts for around $350 if you can find a good deal, and it goes up from there. The Sage 2 exibits everything that makes the Sebenza great, but it does it at less than half the price.

The blade steel is CPM S30V. This is an upper end stainless steel that was made by Crucible Materials Corporation while working directly with Chris Reeve. If you want to know the specifics about CPM S30V steel then look it up on Google or Wikipedia. The blade steel on this knife is widely regarded as one of the best production steels available and is not usually found on a knife in this price point. I heard that Spyderco purchased a very large amount of this American made steel and shipped it over to Taiwan, where these knives are made. The blade is the classic Spyderco leaf shaped drop point and is full flat ground. The jimping on the thumb ramp and choil (the indentation on the underside of the blade) is deep enough to keep your fingers from slipping, but not so aggressive as to be uncomfortable.

The Spyderco Sage 2 is one of the best EDC tools anyone could carry. Its simplicity, moderate heft, and impeccable workmanship are marvels of modern technology and intuitive use design.

Here's what you get when you buy this knife:

An S30V steel blade
Two titanium handle slabs
One detent ball
Two steel pivot screws
Two bronze washers
Two backspacer posts
Four backspacer screws
One backstop post
One pocket clip

It comes assembled, of course, but I feel it's important to really understand how absolutely spartan this knife's construction is. It can be taken down and put back together very quickly for when you get it really dirty. Given its flow-through design and lack of liners you can very easily clean it without taking it apart at all - water, canned air, and some gun oil will handle most of the cleaning jobs you'll encounter with this knife.

Of course, the lack of backspacer and liners require the lock to be build out of one of the titanium handle slabs. So what you get is a Chris Reeve integral lock - a fat piece of ergonomically contoured titanium holding the blade in place in both the open and closed positions. Now that's rock solid. It's so solid you can immediately see and feel the difference when you open the knife for the first time, and for every time thereafter.

With the signature Spyderco look and feel, you get totally intuitive deployment and grip with full assurance of handle retention.

Put this all together and you get a knife beyond what Spyderco has ever done and on par with knives made with identical materials that run several hundred dollars more. The price may seem steep to those not well-versed with mid- to high-end knives, but I know I have paid much more and gotten much less.

This is a great knife if you're looking for top-quality metals and elegantly simple construction. Thick titanium and good steel held together by three removable pillars. The back is open and the construction is flow-through so a quick rinse under the tap will clean out the dust and grime. No springs, no closed back, not much that can get gummed up or fail. One warning: the first "new" knife I received from Amazon was actually a used one, the little sealed internal pouch had been opened (and was in fact of a different material than the real one), the frame was scuffed, and the bushings felt gritty. But the exchange was painless and the second knife new and perfect.

My review is going to be a little more specific than others given there are many great reviews already so I want to cover just a few specific areas for those who are comparing the Sage Ti to other ti folders, including the Chris Reeve Sebenza.

Where's it made at?...First off, I want to say that just because this knife is not 100% US-made, I would not let this change your purchase intentions. Spyderco is an American company and the steel is produced in the US. The overseas assembly means nothing relative to the quality...this is as good as any Spyderco folder made to date, and this purchase supports an American company, American workers, and skilled knifemakers. This folder is higher quality than many custom folders. For the money, you will not find anything better suited for daily carry.

Fit and finish...it is immaculate! I own multiple Chris Reeve Sebenzas and I love them...the Sage Ti has a fit and finish that is almost as good, and for half the price. I think every knife nut should own a Sebenza, but I think a Sage Ti is something everyone needs as well. For the person who likes the Seb but just can't swallow the price, the Sage Ti will leave you very satisfied.

A "legit" Sebenza heritage...As you can see, this knife borrows heavily from the Sebenza, using the titanium frame lock (technically the "Reeve Integral Lock" first seen on the Sebenza about 25 years ago), and CPM-S30V steel, also made by Mr. Reeve with Crucible. Spyderco did this right...they got permission from Mr. Reeve, and they pay Chris Reeve Knives for usage of the patent. Spyderco has a strong track record of paying for patents rather than copying them without permission.
