Now with an Emerson wave opening feature for the quickest possible opening!

The Matriarch 2 is built on the handle of the popular Endura4 design. It features full skeletonized stainless steel liners, providing an outstanding balance of strength and weight, while its injection-molded FRN handle boasts Bi-Directional Texturing for a superior grip. Screw-together construction and phosphor-bronze washers ensure maximum precision and smooth operation.

The blade of the Matriarch 2 is hollow ground from VG-10 stainless steel and features the signature Reverse "S" edge profile of the classic Civilian, which is designed to maximize cutting performance with all areas of its edge. Its point is thicker than the Civilian for increased strength and strategically shaped to nest discreetly into the handle in the closed position. The fully serrated SpyderEdge provides maximum cutting power. The trademark Spyderco Hole provides positive one-hand opening of the blade with either hand. The Matriarch 2 also offers unmatched carry options with the four-position hour glass pocket clip for left/right tip-up/down carry.

A Wicked Self-Defense Tool

I recently moved to a downtown apartment and frequently walk my dog at night. I'm disabled and use a walker to get around. There are some sketchy people about and I wanted some peace of mind, though I choose not to carry a firearm. Running away is the best solution to a confrontation but I can't run and I don't want to depend solely on pepper spray. Enter the Spyderco Matriarch. This is a purpose-designed knife, it's intended solely as a self-defense tool for people with little training using gross motor skills and it's little good as a utility knife--you wouldn't want to dull the serrated edge opening boxes or use it as a prying tool, and hopefully the blade will never get used. The Matriarch can inflict some serious slashing damage--it's not designed for use as a stabbing tool. I recommend you review some YouTube videos for information on technique. The Hawkbill S-shape and the serrations add serious cutting power to the 3.5" blade--it slices through material like a longer blade and effectively has a longer edge area. The Emerson Wave opening feature works perfectly, the knife reliably comes out of your jeans pocket with the blade deployed after a few practice runs. The blade is very sharp out of the box. The knife is light, sturdy and carries comfortably. It locks up tight and there's no play in the action. The VG10 steel has a shaving-sharp edge though it's not a high-end premium material. In any case this isn't a knife you'll be sharpening frequently, if ever. I'm not aware of another small folding knife that's as well suited for discouraging bad guys, just keep in mind that it's not a good choice for everyday utility carry. More than $100 may seem like a lot to pay for a knife you hope you'll never have to use, but the quality and peace of mind are worth it. The Matriarch got me thinking about another more practical Spyderco Emerson opener, the Endura 4, which I may be adding to my collection--I only wish they offered it in a more durable steel than VG-10.
Great self defense knife

This is an amazing knife for defense, it opens so fast and is sharp!!! Pray I never have to use it, but better prepared than not. I disassembled it for a thorough cleaning and to polishing some sharp edges on the scales and found the entire handles and liner full of oil, IDK if this is common but I cleaned it all up and reassembled. Other than that its a fantastic knife!

Not great for much else, but will work extremely well for self protection.
Good Knife, not very utilitarian though...

This is a nice knife, but for me it just wasn't the right knife. It clearly was only ment for one thing and I like my knives to be able to fill multiple roles if need be. Though this is a very nice knife, it just couldn't stand up to my every day tasks so it forced me to carry two knives and eventually I just stopped carrying it because I had other knives. I'd still recommend it happily. It's a great knife and very sharp. I wish they'd offer a delica sized one that I'd definetly carry happily.
