Description

This Spyderco Ronin dates back to 1998 and was recently acquired from a collection. It is in excellent condition and comes with original sheath. This is a discontinued model... so get it quickly.

What is a Ronin? Translated literally it means "wave man". Rendered understandable to the western world, it's an ancient masterless Samurai warrior. In the knife world the Ronin is a fixed-blade neck knife designed by Michael Janich. He collaborated with custom knife maker Michael Snody who for several years made and sold a custom version. The Ronin is Spyderco's production version.

By virtue of its short blade length it is lawfully acceptable for carry most anywhere. The blade has a modified Wharncliffe-shape and is crafted of VG-10 stainless steel. Available with a plain edge, the cutting surface is flat-ground, honed thin and fiercely sharp. Made from an imposing 3mm thick slab of steel, the blade comes pressed between two pieces of slate-colored linen Micarta. Texturing along the spine provides a location to place the thumb and offers extra gripping ability when choking up on the blade. On the bottom side of the handle a yawning index finger choil situates the hand for quick retrieval and responsive control while cutting. Three dime-sized holes drilled out of the handle knock out a few grams of weight and provide indexing. Gripped in the hand, the stout little blade and curved handle feel rock solid, goading you to put it to hard-use. The Ronin is now accompanied by a Boltaron belt sheath.
