New Digicam G10 Spyderco Models

Spyderco has recently come out with a couple of attractive updates to their product line, particularly their Military and Paramilitary models.  One of the more recent trends in tactical gear and apparel is digital camoflauge.  It’s a new development born out of research into human visual performance.  Besides the practical benefits of this type of improved camoflauge, when you pair it with the already appealing aesthetics of the Spyderco knives, you’ve got a great-looking tool to turn to for help out in the field.  So, yes, Digicam is the new black.  Below is the press release information on both the Military and the Paramilitary models with the new digital camoflauge G-10 handle models.

C36CMO Military Model with Camo G-10 Handle
By Spyderco®

Digital camouflage or Digicam is the outcome of applying engineering psychology with the study of visual biophysics and human visual performance.  The pattern is made up of small micropatterns, optically reducing the eye’s ability to detect and discern what it covers.  Various digital patterns are developed and used for the U.S. Military to make more effective concealment for the men and women who go in harms way to protect our freedom.

A cornerstone model in Spyderco’s Save and Serve line up is the C36 Military Model meeting the requirements of a high-performance, light-weight folder designed for hard use.  Since the steel is the spirit of the knife, CPM-S30V with almost 2% carbon seemed the logical choice for the blade given its reputation for long-term edge retention and rust resistance. The ‘Millie’ has a modified clip-point blade laser cut with a 14 mm Spyderco Round Hole for quick deployment and for use with gloves. Texturing above the hole hold the thumb in contact with the blade’s spine during cutting for confident control over the sharpened edge. The handle scales are Digicam G-10 with the lock’s liner nested (inlayed) directly into the scale, pumping up lock strength without the addition of bulky liners. Spacers between the scales create a gap running the handle’s full length exposing the inside workings for inspection and cleaning. The handle flares slightly at the front end creating a finger choil and at the butt end, which keeps the knife from slipping forward or backward in the hand while sawing or making tough or aggressive cuts. A contoured black metal clip is set for right-hand tip-down carry. Made in Golden, Colorado U.S.A. Earth Overall Length: 9-1/2” (241mm) Blade Length: 4” (102mm) Weight: 4.25oz (120g).  For more information please contact Spyderco at: 820 Spyderco Way Golden, Colorado 80403.

C81CMO Para Military Model with Camo G-10 Handle
By Spyderco®

Digital camouflage or Digicam is the result of applying engineering psychology with the study of visual biophysics and human visual performance.  Digital camo’s pattern is a mosaic of small connected micro-patterns, optically reducing the eye’s ability to detect and discern an object.  Digital patterns were developed to enhance concealment for our men and women of the U.S. Military going into harm’s way protecting our freedom.  We’re now offering two models with Digicam G-10 handles.  The Para- Military, is our two-thirds sized version of the Military Model.  Its flat-ground S30V blade stretches 3-3/32” (81mm) long and has a carbon level of 1.45% with the addition of vanadium and nitrogen for over-the-top edge retention.  The round hole is generously sized at 14mm for opening the knife blade with gloved (or large) hands.  Its’ Digicam G-10 optically melts into its surrounds while shunning chemicals and temperature fluctuations.  We’ve expanded the handle at the back-end keeping the hand from slipping while making forward or backward pulling cuts.  The package comes topped off with a nested Compression Lock for the ultimate in a mid-sized survival knife that can level trees, carve tent stakes and never generate a second glance.  Overall Length: 7-7/8” (200mm) Blade Length: 3-3/32” (81mm) Weight: 3.75oz (108g).  For more information please contact Spyderco at: 820 Spyderco Way Golden, Colorado 80403.
