The Roadie was conceived to comply with the TSA's 2013 plan to allow qualified knives on planes. Although the plan was withdrawn by the TSA, Spyderco is ready for the day when knives and planes can coexist.
Spyderco's Roadie is essentially an evolved version of a penknife for the modern man. It has a practical sheepsfoot style blade with a trademarked Double Dent opener for fingernail-free two-handed opening. The red handle is contoured fiberglass-reinforced nylon with a notched-joint mechanism. An index-finger choil on the blade aids to prevent accidental closure and facilitates precision cuts.
Available in a handful of different colors, the Spyderco Roadie is a friendly, high-utility knife for the modern age!
This is perfect for traveling pretty much any where in the world or using in public. Its slip joint design says I'm just a tool as does the blade shape. When people see this they notice how tiny it is, how it takes 2 hands to open and that the blade shape shows you just want to open that item in front of you and not go on a rampage.
Innovative design for a classic slip joint. Fine steel, great ergo, classic spyderco.
