Customer Reviews

Great Value in a Modern Slipjoint
John V. on Mar 27, 2019

I received a Tern as a gift. As a result, I am going to spend more money later on a Spyderco slipjoint! This knife inspires a lot of confidence in carrying a modern slipjoint. The action is satisfyingly crisp, with a well defined half-stop and a very strong open position. The jimping is well done, and the clip is fantastic. Easy on, easy off, and it's very low profile! The factory grind was uneven and fairly oblique, but it's impossible to deduct a star for that when 8cr13MoV sharpens as easily as it does. The thin, slicy blade profile was very easy to use with a Lansky system. In minutes, I had a great sharp working edge! Highly recommended.

Awesome knife for price
Christopher A. on Dec 25, 2018

As with my meadowlark 2 i purchased before my delica to see if i liked how the knife felt i recieved this for chtostmas as i plan on purchasing the spyderco urban very soon the overall fit and finish is very nice and i am impressed also the lock up is very solid easy to sharpen i do not plan on beating this knife so the 8cr is perfectly fine also i love the pocket clip im left handed so fully ambidextrous knives are a must for me

Perfect EDC for the price!
Brandon D. on Jan 28, 2018

If there was an identical lockback version that would be my first pick. The 8cr dulls fairly easily but the edge comes back in so readily and so hair popping that do not mind. I especially like the weight and the clip. It some how escaped my notice that this is significantly larger than the Dragonfly, what a pleasant surprise!

Dead on.
Ashkan E. on Feb 14, 2019

Pretty much exactly as expected although a bit smaller than I'm used to. Pros: Clip is great, knife is sharp, slip joint action is snappy and has a half stop, price is good. Cons: The byrd hole is sharp pretty common problem for spyderco. Steel is 8Cr13 but that's reasonable at the price.
