Spyderco Techno 2 Frame Lock Knife Titanium (2.55" Stonewash) C158TIP2

The Spyderco Techno 2 is a variant of the first Techno, equipped with an attractive sheepsfoot blade and standoff construction rather than the original's drop point blade and backspacer.

The Polish knifemaker Marcin Slysz gave his Techno folder a progressive European appearance. This model falls into Spyderco’s “Little Big Knives” category, meaning it features a smaller blade and handle, paired up with a hard-duty locking mechanism, premium blade steel and vault-like construction found primarily on larger hard-use knives. A reversible deep carry pocket clip finishes off the solid Slysz design.

  • Classic thumb hole opener and a reversible wire pocket clip allow for ambidextrous use.
  • Thick CTS-XHP steel blade has a high saber grind for advanced edge geometry and strength.
  • A high strength Reeve Integral lock provides secure blade lock up.

Customer Reviews

Great Little Knife
James B. on Aug 22, 2020

This is a well made small knife. It is compact and comes out of the box with a very sharp edge. Good ergonomics for a small knife. I am currently carrying it more often than my larger knives. I recommend it highly.

Love it!
Troy D. on Aug 1, 2020

This thing is chunky and small and sharp! Action is great. Purchased this after the spydiechef because I loved the chef and I love this as well.

Worth every penny.
George M. on Apr 21, 2020

I have owned this knife for over a year. Simply amazing knife.

A really cool little knife
Jeremy H. on Feb 11, 2020

The very first pocket clip folder I ever owned was a Spyderco Delica (I think?). There weren't a lot of options in those days, and I carried it for years. The tip eventually broke, so I went looking for something new and passed the Spyderco along to someone else. I've not owned one since...until now. I don't normally go in for knives with titanium or aluminum handles, simply because they tend to get scratched up. However, something drew me to this one. I like the Marcin Slysz designs, and I missed out on the Bowie. I wanted to add at least one Spyderco to my collection and decided to give this a chance. I really, really like this knife. The action is silky smooth, and the overbuilt look and feel is very appealing. It's a little chunk of lead, be prepared for that.

This knife competes closely with my Chris Reeve.
Jacob B. on Nov 16, 2019

The techno is so smooth and the action is comparable to a sebenza. the finish on the blade is so nice and the dark gray titanium scales show wear so beautifully. CTS XHP will take a mirror edge and hold it pretty long. Overall I love the techno and its my favorite ~$200 knife.

Techno 2 Improves On A Classic
Adam B. on Oct 31, 2019

I recently had a chance to pick up the original Techno after years of hemming and hawing over the purchase. I liked it so much that I decided to pick up the Techno 2 within a couple weeks of carrying the OG. Simply put, the Techno 2 is everything you want in a small but incredibly sturdy package. It takes the "overbuilt" trend and does it right, scaling it down so that you don't feel like you're carrying a titanium brick around in your pocket. It feels substantial in-hand and the sheepsfoot blade is perfect for cutting. The blade is thicker than your average Spyderco, with none of the concerns of fragility that can come with a thin spine and tapered tip. My favorite aesthetic element are the green standoffs. The original Techno had a blue g10 backspacer there, the bright green standoffs pay homage to that while being a bit more subtle. My only concern about the knife is the saber grind. While I don't have any issue with the idea of a saber grind in and of itself in terms of cutting geometry, I just don't have the skills on the sharpening side to properly maintain it. Thankfully, CTS-XHP can hold an edge so I imagine it will be a long while before I'm in need of a touch-up.

Techno 2
Charles J. on Feb 7, 2019

The orginal Techno was a clunker. More of a chisel than a knife. This knife is the amoung the most perfectly designed knifes available at any cost. Beautiful blade, perfectly balanced with frame. Quality production and a real work of Art.

longtime owner of original Techno
justin i. on Dec 21, 2018

Context: I think Spyderco is my favorite knife maker. I own a lot of Spyderco, Case, GEC, a few Benchmade, Hinderer and CRK. I primarily carry a PM2 or Delica to work and a GEC or Techno in more dressy outfits. I love the original Techno appearance and feel in the hand, but dislike its thick blade stock. I bought the Techno 2 in hopes that it is slightly more slice-oriented with the thinner stock. My opinion of the Techno 2 is that it is a solid improvement on the original Techno. It has much thinner blade stock with improved blade shape (for slicing) and point. I appreciate that the thicker scales on the Techno 2 retain that "tanky" feel from the original Techno. The centering and lockup are perfect as expected from a Ti frame-lock from Spyderco. Scale shape is an improvement for grip (at least for my mid-small hand). Lanyard hole location is also improved. I like the green standoffs, but I like the blue back-spacer too. Clip is unchanged. I will be keeping my original Techno because I still think its a great piece for any Spyderco collection, but I don't see myself carrying it over the Techno 2 for any reason. The Techno 2 is a significant improvement in my opinion.

Wish it had a lock bar insert
Mitchell W. on Aug 7, 2020

For $231 I feel like this should've had a lock bar insert, especially where it's a smaller lock bar and easier to push out than others. I really like the wire clip and green back spacers though and the CTS-XHP blade came extremely sharp from the factory. I like that the gimping travels a good length up the spine of the blade making it easier to get some purchase and leverage.
