The Autonomy was developed to meet demanding mission requirements of the U.S. Coast Guard’s rescue swimmers. The SpyderEdge rescue-style blade is the first American-made knife to be ground from H-1 steel, a nitrogen based steel that is completely immune to saltwater corrosion. Its automatic opening is powered by a coil spring nested within a unique removable shroud that allows the spring to be serviced without disassembling the entire knife.

An oversized firing button enables quick indexing by tactile sense—even while wearing gloves or suffering diminished dexterity due to cold. The button passes through both stainless steel handle liners, stabilizing it and increasing the blade’s lock strength. The button’s spring is also integral to the stainless steel liner, providing increased tension and eliminating any cavities within the handle that could retain water. The knife’s open construction allows it to be easily cleaned and dried, making it the ideal tool for waterborne rescue operations.

This model features orange G-10 scales, a sliding safety lock, wire pocket clip, and a satin finished blade.

Winner of the prestigious “Most Innovative American Design” award at the 2012 Blade Show.

Smooth action, fast, really well made. Really like the hand feel and the straight edge at the tip. Orange too!

I own many Spiderco knives but this is my first Spyderco auto. This is simply a great knife whether you are a first responder, work in the trades or just an average day shmuck like me. As with all Spyderco's the fit and finish is excellent and the blade is razor sharp out of the box. The ergonomics of this knife are amazing it just fits your hand perfectly. If you are looking for an EDC auto that can handle tough working conditions and won't break the bank, look no further. Throw in outstanding customer service from BHQ and you can't go wrong.
