Spyderco makes knives like the Matriarch 2 for professionals. This model has the Emerson wave opening feature for the quickest possible opening and a titanium carbonitride (TiCN) coating for tactical applications!

The Matriarch 2 is built on the handle of the popular Endura 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.

Review of sorts
Brian K.
I have to say before I got this knife I hated serrated knives but it has changed my mind. It's the perfect size and shape for a edc protection knife.
Great Knife Overall
Porter M.
I personally love Spyderco's decision to take the civilian and tone it down. This is still an insanely sharp thin knife but not something I'm afraid will break just fro opening and box or making a quick cut.Great knife for someone show doesn't just want a self defense knife.P.S. And it looks sick in the DLC black coating.
Covert killer

My favorite model of knife. Served me well in the service. Great ergonomics, tough, lightweight, razor sharp and very formidable.
Perfect Except for Two Disappointments
Justin B.
-FRN handle is excellent. Very grippy and feels good in the hand.
-Emerson "wave" opener works well.
-Perfect self-defense knife

-There is no jimping on the back of the thumb hole. This is my third Spyderco. The other two (PM2 & Salt 2) knives have the jimping, so I was surprised and disappointed to see it omitted in the Matriarch.
-The feel of the black blade coating doesn't feel high-end. It is well applied; however, it doesn't have a pleasing feel for me. It also picks up fingerprints which are hard to buff off. It feels more like a parkerized finish rather than the finish that's on a Glock slide or my Benchmade Stryker.

-I'm glad I purchased the knife. The two cons listed are minor nit picks, and would not compromise the effectiveness of the knife in its intended purpose. So, overall I'm glad to have it in my pocket.
Do not wait.

I have hesitated about buying this knife for a long time and Thanks to BladeHQ, my wait is over! This knife will save your life and that is all i am gonna say. When SHTF and my Glock 17 goes down, this knife is the Second to come to my rescue. THANKS BladeHQ for great prices, fair shipping, and Quality product assortment.
Great for defense

It's razor sharp, light weight, and opens with ease. It will slice everything with ease. Like the other review, watch your fingers.
Super sharp
Andrew B.
I bought this knife a while back from BHQ. And it's razor sharp out of the box! The hook can really grab and bite deep. Watch your fingers.
