Description

Description

Spyderco's award winning Autonomy automatic knife design is receiving a makeover in the form of the utilitarian Autonomy 2. The Autonomy 2 differs from the original design with a more neutral handle grip and a drop point blade profile for everyday use. This new design features the same mechanism and prominent firing button for easy use in gloved hands. The full-flat ground blade is made from nitrogen based LC200N rustproof steel for maximized corrosion resistance. A unique hourglass pocket clip straddles the lanyard hole and is reversible for left or right side carry.

Features:
  • Ergonomic G-10 handle with full stainless steel liners for a solid, secure grip.
  • Over-sized firing button and a safety lock provide a convenient, easy to use automatic design.
  • Item includes a reversible stainless steel pocket clip for left or right side tip-up carry.

Iíve had the Autonomy 2 for a week now and it is my favorite knife. Initially I thought that it might be a bit too large but clipped on my pocket it is fine. I have large hands and itís a perfect fit. The blade is beautiful as well as functional without needing to be gentle. This is a beefy utility knife that fits my EDC needs perfectly. Glad that I got it and just wishing that I could find the smaller version as well. Iíd like the matched pair.
BEST KNIFE !!!!!!

Just arrived today, glad I jumped on it when it came back in stock as it looks like it is now out of stock again...

Definitely a fairly beefy, no-nonsense knife the awesome steel and *very* positive auto opening. Love the oversize button, easy to use even with gloves.

I wish Spyderco did more autos!
Amazing auto from spyderco

I bought this knife through another distributor, but I wanted to review it here anyway for anyone curious. Really great knife. SUPER sharp out of the box. Much more so than my microtech stitch, which was over double this price. It locks up hard, but not too hard. It lets you know itís solid, without wanting to jump out of the hand. I would say that if youíre looking for an automatic knife, this is the best bang for the buck. Saying that almost sounds like itís cheap. Itís not! But as I stated above, I have autos double the price that arenít nearly as nice or functional.
Well...?.

Twenty years back I got several of the firm's automatics for deployment. They were sure, sturdy, a comfort to have, and saved my life while in Special Operations Anti/Counter Terrorism duties. Then the spring broke and the company offered this model saying the old ones were extinct. It does it the hand. Fine blade. I hated the new blade release. It feels odd. I might be old fashioned but a skeleton button serves what purpose? I want a flat, checkered or dished surface. A round ring in a hole did not work for me. As it was a replacement for a twenty five year old veteran Spyderco auto I will keep it but depend on it. My release is hard to press and I have been trying to wear it in. If I do get it to wear in I will correct this review. The company made top line autos once and the SpecIal all used them. Then twenty plus years go by and the company does not even have parts..or a decent button.
A really Quality Spyderco Auto Knife.

This new Spyderco Autonomy came perfect in quality of build and fit and finish, the blade came razor or better then razor sharp and right in the center, and i love it's shape.
The operation is very smooth and snaps quickly into battery and having the blade lock is a great idea in open and in closed.
The over sized operation button really is helpful with or without wearing gloves.
I really think the operation of the Spyderco autonomy is easer and smoother in operation then my Microtech LUDT that cost $60 dollars more then my Spyderco.
The D10 Scales have a great feeling and will not slip in hand when doing tough cutting.
All hardware is fitted tightly and does not stick out of Scales, the pocket clip is really fitted tight with 3 screws and is polished and looks quality.
This knife has full steel liners that give it plenty of strength.
If your looking for a quality Auto Knife i feel this is the one.
And as always the Blade HQ gave quick and quality service.
Well built

I've always wanted a Spyderco auto, and jumped on the chance to get this knife. The build is very solid, great deployment. Big ass firing button delivers as mentioned in the description. Great G-10 handles. My wish is that Spyderco would make the handles in gray G-10 at some point.
Should have been made in Taiwan for better QC.

Good fit & finish ... Great action ... Feels rugged ... Feels good in the hand even with gloves, but when it comes to a symmetric blade grind, I am sadly disappointed with this particular Spyderco. (Yes ... I am being picky, but I just waited 9 months for a new and different Spyderco.)

All my other Spyderco's ( and I have a bunch ) are pretty much spot on for production knives with respect to blade grinds, especially those made in Taiwan.

To me it seems that over the past few years Spydercos made in Taiwan display better quality control when compared Spydercos made in USA. This knife is definitely an example of this especially when it comes to symmetric grinds.

Bottom line: I do love this knife, but I wish it had been made in Taiwan.


Finally!

I preordered this knife last February and it arrived yesterday. The fit and finish is excellent and the LC200N blade is razor sharp. If you are a fan of OTS autos you will love this knife. I now own both the 1 and 2. They are IMHO worth every penny. As always BHQ customer service is second to none!
