Product Description

Product Description

Names for the Chokwe people of Central Africa, the Spyderco Chokwe is a stat-of-the-art folding knife inspired by their historical tribal fixed-blade. It retains the traditional triangular blade profile and coffin-shaped handle, but expresses them in high-tech materials. The Chokwe's blade is CPM-S30V stainless steel and flat ground for cutting performance. One handle scale is black G-10 laminate supported by a stainless steel liner. The other scale is machined from solid titanium and forms the foundation of the Chris Reeve R.I.L. (Reeve Integral Lock) that locks the blade open. Both handle scales are pierced with circular holes that reduce weight, increase grip texture and allow the knife to be lashed to a longer handle or pole. An hourglass-shaped clip configured for tip-down, right-hand carry ensures that the knife will always be ready when you are .

Knives have existed as essential survival, agricultural, spiritual, and culinary tools for ages, and for every culture on Earth. This is why innovative cutlery company Spyderco established its Ethnic Series of folding blades, honoring specific types of historically significant cultural knives.

The Chokwe is one of these knives, named after the eponymous people from the Zambia/Democratic Republic of Congo region of Central Africa. Primarily agricultural, the Chokwe are gatherers, fishermen, and hunters, and also happen to be a people who revere their knifemakers and blacksmiths. The Spyderco Chokwe is a folding knife patterned on a Chokwe fixed blade knife used daily for feeding, harvesting, and protection. This knife mimics the originals' triangular blades and rectangular handles, updated with CPM-S30V steel, flat-ground for cutting performance.

The handle is made of lightweight yet durable black G-10 material, with bored out handle holes to reduce overall weight, and enabling through-holes for attachment to a longer handle or pole. Full length internal metal liners reinforce the locking device, a Chris Reeve-style integral lock. When it's time to be on the move, a metal hourglass clip carries the Chokwe tucked safely in a pocket tip-down and right-handed.



5% of sales of the Chokwe knife go to the Keep a Child Alive Organization.

The knife feels solid in your hand, yet deceptively lightweight.

I have to admit that when I first saw pictures of this Spyderco it didn't do much for me. After a while I looked at some other pics of this knife and started to warm up to it. It was the fact that there was a killer deal on the Chokwe that I finally ordered it. At any rate, when the knife arrived and I un-boxed it I was totally surprised how much I liked it in person. This is a sweet knife. I love the thin pointy blade profile. The fit and finish on this knife is superb. The lockup on the blade with the titanium frame-lock is something that inspires confidence. Also, the blade flicks out so smoothly with the slightest thumb pressure. All in all, I'm glad I took a chance on this knife. As with other Spyderco Ethnic designs this knife won't be in production forever...so if you're on the fence, search around for the best price and buy the Chokwe.

I wanted a large folding knife to serve as a camping food prep knife. I've tried other large folders. Those usually have contouring on the handle to make them feel good when gripped in a fist. Perfect for some tasks, but not, it turns out, the way I hold my chef's knife or santoku.

But this knife's simple, unadorned grip and straight cutting edge make it perfect for slicing and chopping on a cutting board. The integral liner lock keeps the blade secure for use. Also, this sort of lock does not have food-catching crevices, so easy to keep clean. Finally, like all Spydercos it is stunningly sharp right out of the box.

This knife really grew on me. I had my reservations about this whether the radical design in the "Ethnic" series was practical. Taking it to hand put all fears aside. I have small hands and I am mostly ambidextrous.The knife felt good in both my left and right hands There is some minor and/or short jimmping on the underside of the blade. But for my small hands it doesn't matter. The length of the handle makes this not so critical and I don't see why I'd have to choke up beyond the handle. There is no jimmping on the top side of the blade. But the angle and length of the high angle of the top of the blade makes the lack of jimmping no problem.

The combo G-10 and/titanium scales are really something!!! This is the easiest opening Spyderco I've owned so far. If you want to own a really unique Spyderco at at great price consider this knife. The blade is not going to be something your going to open cans with. It is relatively thin. But the Chris Reeve style liner lock up is incredibly solid. The S30V blade is really nice I wish the clip was wire in style instead of solid. This has got to turn into a collector's item. It is very light for the size of the knife.

gotta keep the perfect score going on this knife - its 5-star reviews are the real thing and well deserved

UPDATE:

I am [shamefaced] and going to redo my original review, which complained about an opened bag. Spyderco is amazing. I emailed its customer service and got the following reply in less than two hours! that's INCREDIBLE customer service!

"We quality check a high percentage of our knives and in the case of knives that come from Taiwan (Chokwe as example) they are shipped in sealed plastic bags but we must obviously cut the bag to check the knives. That opened bag ensures that we have checked for our high quality standards."

the knife was fine and in perfect (AFAICT) condition, even though it arrived in an unsealed, cut bag; here are my observations:

smooth right- or left-hand opening
good, solid lockup (at least 50%!)
sharp, sharp blade
grippy
great ergonomics (i have med/large hands)
this knife is a good complement to my Spyderco Sage 2

this knife is going to be a user for sure! get one now before they're gone!

Everything I had hoped for and then some. Really an interesting design, beautifull ergos and cool factor. I'm glad I was able to score one, since they're discontinued...as usual Spyderco Tiawan quality is actually better than USA made...sad but TRUE. I'm having a custom scale made for this one as I type...This knife hasn't missed a day of carry since i recieved it; work and everywhere else. CPM S30V...It Rocks. No knife remorse here.

In closed position, overall package feels very dense and sturdy. Deployment is silky smooth (phos. bronze bushings) and can be easily flicked open with no wrist movement. Lockup is early, allowing for potential wear. No grinding sounds or issues with lockup as I've read from other comments. Out of box the edge was 90% what it should be (FFG and thin profile) - could use a light hone but I'm keeping this one as a collector piece. Awesome materials for the value, great ergos, fit and finish are amazing. Pick one up before they are discontinued!
