The Positron is a compact EDC flipper that employs Brad Southard's singular design cues and Spyderco's manufacturing know-how. This sensational knife has a full-flat ground CPM-S30V stainless steel blade with the trademark Spydie hole. Effortless blade deployment is provided by the flipper opener in tandem with ball-bearings at the pivot. The carbon fiber handle has nested skeletonized stainless steel liners and the Walker LinerLock mechanism. A minimal, yet durable reversible wire pocket clip is a perfect fit with this suave folding knife.

Good EDC
Ryan W.
Alright, so this is a good option for EDC, but it has one major downside for me. Before that, let me tell you. Buy this knife if it is on sale; like for $99. Do not throw $160 at it. The carbon fiber is real on this knife unlike a lot of the Spydercos. It feels amazing. When I first got the knife the action was awful. But after taking it apart, cleaning and adding some lub; it has an awesome action. Some people hate the liner lock, but it doesn't bother me. I will tell you what bothers me. The clip!!!. This thing is the worst hot spot, I've yet experienced on a knife. Maybe if Spyderco had just positioned it differently would it be ok. I hate it. I can only bear it for a bit. Otherwise, without the clip, the handle feels amazing.

Wanted a spyderco that was different, and that is is. Flipper action is smooth but liner lock is not so easy. But overall for a collection knife and the right price it was well worth the purchase. Blade hq is the best for finding unique quality knives.
Get em before they are gone!

A real nice addition to the collection with that wonderful carbon fiber and great flipping action!
It's ok

The liner lock kills this knife for me it is a pain to open overall good quality not a fan of the pocket clip either but its sharp and looks good
Uniquely cool

Smaller than it appears in the video on the BHQ site. Very solid build quality, feels good in the hand. Flipper action is OK and its true the clip is kinda in the way but it oozes quality! I got mine for under $100.00. Should be a great edc blade. Light and unique!
Great Quality :D Poor Feel :(

Out of the box this knife is super sharp and looks very nice but quickly I learned that the steel, even though itís CMP S30V, looks cheapish for a Spyderco. Once I messed around with the pivot screw I got the knife to flip open super easy. But my one major complaint on this knife is that the liner lock is set further under the handle and can be a bit awkward to actuate with one hand because the liner lock is flush with the handle and not pushed out a little for easier use.
Good quality

The handle is a little blocky in hand and I have to struggle to get a 4 finger purchase on this knife's handle. All in all a great little knife for the price, quality build, very nice blade shape & perfect centering. Don't get me wrong, this is quality you're getting but it suits people with a smaller hand better I think.
On the fence
Aaron S.
Not a huge fan of the way Spyderco knives look in general. This knife however looks really good. It's really high quality and on sale I felt I couldn't pass on it. However it is thick and feels round in the hand. Quality aside its not a great knife for me. For it's size I feel it to much in the pocket due to it's thickness. Doesn't feel good in my hand and also the blade lock release is harder for me to release than any other knives I have owned. Would of gave this knife 1 star if it wasn't for the great quality plus the great fit and finish.
Excellent Value at the Close Out Price
John R.
At the current (as of this writing) close out price, this knife is a buy. Very light in the pocket, nice carbon fiber handles. Nice bead blast finish on the blade. Blade shape makes it a great slicer. But it has its quirks. You really need to reverse the clip from the usual location since it digs into your hand o/w. The flipper is a little tricky to learn, but a little lube and practice and then it's flawless. It's a relatively small knife and that may be an issue for large hands..
Great Flipper
Thomas D.
The scales make it light weight. It is a very smooth knife, action is good and blade shape great. This is an overall good knife to have, feels great in your hands.
Great folder

The spyderco positron is my first purchase from this site and I couldn't be happier. The textured carbon fiber scales feel great in my hand compared to my aluminum handled benchmades that have that chalky feel. Blade centering is perfection as expected and lockup is perfect. Knife feels great in hand and came razor sharp. I love the loop clip spyderco incorporates in some of their knives I don't feel like it's going to ruin my pockets like some of my other knife clips do. The only slight complaint I have is the clip is a little bulky in hand but still overall comfort in grip is great.
