Description

Description

In collaboration with custom knifemaker Filip de Leeuw of Belgium, Spyderco has created the Myrtle folding knife. This knife has all the characteristics you expect in a premium folder including a CPM-S30V steel blade, titanium handle and framelock. The Myrtle has a distinct modified leaf-shaped blade with a general purpose bellied edge and a slight hook at the tip for additional utility. Marbled carbon fiber and a titanium bolster decorate the handle's front side and a wide hourglass clip enables secure tip-up carry.

The moment I saw this knife I knew I had to have it. Its looks are polarizing, more so than politics, so you either love it or hate it at first sight.

I loved it.

This was an impulse buy based on the low price, quality of materials, and potential collectability. It was bought to be a safe queen, I did not expect to like it much as a functioning cutting tool. However, the first time I used it I realized how special this blade really is. It went through cardboard like no other knife in my collection. Slices paper like a laser, and takes down tree branches with a satisfying thwack. This blade is an extremely effective cutter with the exception of food prep. With its recurves and thickness you're not going to want to use this for chopping onions or julienning peppers, but who really uses a pocket knife for chef work? It's a pocket knife people!


Pros:
-Gorgeous looks (my opinion)
-Excellent blade to handle ratio
-Unique, no one else will be carrying it
-Blade is really good at slicing and draw cuts
-Ergos are decent
-Price is good now that it's been discontinued
-Easy to sharpen and it stays sharp (I use a Sharpmaker)
-Recurves make it an extremely efficient cutter


Cons:
-STIFF!!! Action is terrible out of the box; this is a two-handed opening knife. Minus one star for the action.
-Blade shape limits its usefulness, ie, no food prep
-Blade stock is a little thick, though it still cuts quite nice
-Pocket clip is yikes
-Did I mention stiff, terrible action? I think it needs to be mentioned twice. C'mon Spyderco!
-It's a Taichung knife, so expect unnecessary sharp edges and corners

In summary, if this knife appeals to you, buy it. Buy it twice at this price and keep one locked away forever. It's a great knife, one of my favorites, and hopefully time will loosen this thing up a little.

This is a really fun and interesting knife. The blade shape makes it a little hard to use sometimes but oh well it looks cool. The spydie hole is a little small and was sharp but can easily be fixed with a ceramic rod. Now to get it pimped with a BA anodization job.
Looks can be deceiving

Non centered blade, small sharp spydie hole, and a sub standard deployment made me return this knife, which is a real disappointment because i loved the looks. Spyderco should step up there game at this price point.
Great Blade

Yeah, it looks weird, but it works! The extreme S recurve profile is an excellent slicer and the point will dig into packaging, tape, cardboard you name it, all while maintaining integrity at the tip. The aesthetics of the TI and the Carbon fiber are pleasing and like most framelocks it will break in with use. Be advised it's not a very left hand friendly knife, but in all respects I love it. High quality for a respectable price.
