Description

Description

Spyderco's Bill Moran Bowie-Style fixed blade collaboration is patterned after his tasteful designs. The upswept Drop Point style blade is flat-ground VG-10 with a satin finish and carries Bill's signature. The blade is tapered, starting thick where the blade joins the handle, thinning down the spine to a fine, uniformly ground tip. The FRN handle is shaped to fill the palm and is inlayed with a panel of non-sliding Kraton. Highly recommended for hunting and camping it comes in a molded Boltaron sheath with multi-position G-Clip fastening system.

Bill Moran is recognized as the grandfather of American custom knifemaking and the founding father of the American Bladesmith Society. He started pounding steel, making knives more than fifty years ago. If you're lucky enough to find a custom-made Moran to buy, expect to shell out five-figures, minimum. His work and designs are that revered.

I'll preface this review by saying I'm much better at collecting knives than I am hunting. In all seriousness, I love the Bill Moran, though.

The knife is simplistic and just works. Typical Spyderco. The Kraton inserts are super sticky which gives you an awesome purchase on this knife, even when wet. I have medium-large hands and the ergonomics are stellar for me.

VG10 certainly isn't the best blade steel in my collection, but for this purpose built knife, it sharpens back to razor sharp incredibly easy which is a nice feature when you're out in the field.

The sheath just works. I love the ability to customize the clip position. The knife lives securely on the outside of my pack on some webbing and I don't ever have to worry about it falling off.
