This is a great EDC folder pocket knife from one of America’s favorites, Spyderco. The Spyderco Astute features a blade made from 8Cr13Mov stainless that is similar to Japanese AUS-8. This is a low carbon high chrom stainless that is a relatively strong blade with good corrosion resistance and able to have a razor sharp edge.
The handle has full stainless liners with black G10 scales, delivering excellent ergonomics. The Astute is comfortable in the hand and has a nice thumb scoop and index finger cutout, allowing easy access to the liner lock mechanism. The back is open, making for easy cleaning and maintenance.
