The Spyderco Civilian has a patented reverse "S" blade that's intended to be used like an oversized claw. Deeply curved and full at the belly, the VG-10 hollow-ground blade excels in slicing. Because of its distinctly specialized features it is not intended or designed for general utility or everyday use. This knife is curved in all the right places for ergonomic use and retention. One of the most specialized CLIPITS in the Spyderco line-up, the Civilian is available in limited quantities.
