A Spyderco Sage 2 and Texas Sage blooms
About 9 months ago I picked up a NIB Spyderco Sage 2 Chris Reeve Integral Lock Titanium knife from someone on bladeforums. I had read many good things about the Sage series and loved (and missed) my small Sebenza so I thought the Sage 2 would hold me over until I purchased another Sebenza .
The frame (and lock) of the Sage 2 is made of 6A14V titanium and makes for an extremely light knife for it's size. The blade is made of very good CPM S30V steel and is nestled between the two titanium slabs separated by Phosphor Bronze Washers, which makes for VERY smooth opening and closing. The materials alone speak to the fact that this is by all accounts a high end production knife.Fortunately, the price doesn't reflect that.
|The Spyderco Sage 2 compared to the much beefier, hard use Zero Tolerance 0550|
|The wire clip makes for easy sliding in and out of your pockets.|
Fit and Finish: 8/10 (The knife came with a loose pivot screw but once adjusted and locked, F&F is great)
Camp Use: 7/10
Hard/Military/Police Use: 6/10
EDC Use: 10/10
Skinning/Game Prep: 8/10
