The Spyderco Drunken represents the first ever collaboration with celebrated custom knife-maker Dimitry Sinkevich. This high performance EDC knife combines Dimitry's artistic design and craftsmanship with maximized functionality. The ergonomic handle is built to last with a steel reinforced titanium frame lock and a carbon fiber scale with a nested steel liner. Both scales are machined with a grippy "Drunken" texture, which give this knife its name. Take your EDC game to the next level with the Spyderco Drunken.Features:
Really nice knife with superb machining and finishing. Pros: Mirror washed blade, very light and pocketable, no voids in the carbon, great snappy action, amazing machining on both scales, solid lockup and perfect centering, Very thin edge for effortless slicing, great ergos (L sized hands), came razor sharp as you'd expect from Spyderco. Cons: Pocket clip is pretty bad for the price and does NOT like thick pants, would've preferred bearings over washers but that's just personal preference The only thing I'd recommend is polishing the washers if you care to but its not at all necessary.
Disclaimer: This was purchased from the previous owner LNIB, and I'm not sure where he received it. This is an absolutely beautiful knife with so many unique and amazing details. The blade is ground perfectly and has a really neat mirror stonewash finish. The milling is even more stunning in person, looking attractive while also serving the purpose of something to grip. Top to bottom, this knife was flawless fit and finish-wise. I do wish it were on bearings, but even after a cleaning and a little washer polishing, it's smoothed out quite a bit. The clip is quite bad in its factory state and I do wish they would modify it. With a pair of pliers and a bench vice, I was able to bend the clip in such a way that it functions flawlessly. Don't let the clip scare you away from such a fantastic knife!
Most beautiful CF I have ever seen. The 3D milling is incredible. Lightweight, smooth action, very sharp out of the box. Useful blade shape. Great slicer. Pocket clip has not caused a problem for me. A truly fantastic edc knife and great example of Spyderco’s and Sinkevich’s work. Love the name “Drunken”!!!
Yes, it’s true. Coming from a collector that has over 60 different makers and nearly $50k invested in the hobby. The Spyderco Drunken is the best fit, finish, feel, and design spyderco has to offer. I have other high end Spydercos but non of them hit all of the marks like the Drunken. Not a fan boy of Spyderco at all either. Just a fan of well designed knives.
Wow, the pictures you see online don't do this knife justice. The milling on the handles is next-level making for a stunning presentation in the hand. The blade shape and lines give it a calm, flowing feel with just a hint of savageness behind it. There is some intricate milling on the inside of the titanium scale as well which I'm guessing was to help cut down on the weight. My only gripe, and it really was a let down for me when I got this knife, is the pocket clip. You can't carry this with jeans, it doesn't work. There just isn't enough clearence between the clip and the handle.
I wish the spydey hole was accessible like other knives, opening this one isn’t as nice and kind of overrides the beautiful aesthetics.
Aesthetically it's perfect. The pocket clip is a huge letdown though. It's possible to bend it and make it more functional but that shouldn't be necessary on a $400 knife. The action isn't bad, it's pretty smooth and the detent is okay.
