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.

Execution is lacking.
Peter G.
On paper the build materials for this knife should make it cost 500 dollars but the execution is lacking. If I had paid full price for this framelock I would have sent it back in disappointment. For example there is a height difference between the carbon fiber handle scale and the titanium bolster, the fit is not seamless. The finish of the titanium was beat up as well. This was more like a new factory second. And as others have stated this knife had a rough deployment and lock up but the issues were corrected by working the action. But again Iím looking for a working knife out of the box not a project.

With that said the blade design is great. It has delivered on every cutting task I have used it for and the knife is a tank. The big chunk of S30V used for the blade plays a big role in that. It still has a great edge. So really I look at the flaws in this knife as personalization. Right now this is part of my EDC and it will be a user not a safe queen. The inconsistency in production makes it mine but who knows you may get a perfect one but Iím not sure you will be any better off.

Not a fidget friendly knife but man, it tears though anything and everything.
She's gorgeous

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!

-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

-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.
Freaking Phenomenal

Fantastic knife, I love it, the blade is a little weird, but came razor sharp and haven't sharpened it yet!
Fun collectors piece
treestain h.
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
christos m.
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
Matthew G.
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.
