In this crazy year of increasingly distressing bad news, it’s always a welcome change to get excited about one of your hobbies. And thanks to Spyderco’s regular releases of their latest and greatest knives, collectors and fans of the brand have had great reasons to be excited throughout this year. The Spyderco Reveal Volume 6 is their third supplemental catalog release for 2020, showcasing new models and variants that embody the brand’s drive for innovation, great ergonomics and value for money. In this short roundup, we take a look at our top picks for their soon-to-be-released models, all of which you can preorder right now at the links below.

Spyderco Pacific Salt 2 Green LC200N

Combine the corrosion-resistance of the Salt series with the time-tested Endura platform, while adding a new and improved blade steel to the mix, and you get the Pacific Salt 2 Green. The shift to LC200N steel from the original H1 of the previous Salt models brings better edge retention as well as the capability to produce fully flat-ground blades. This brings theblade geometry and slicing abilities of its other models to this line, which now sports a distinct green colorway for its tough and lightweight FRN handles. The matte black coated hardware is impervious to rust, keeping the theme of a knife made for those who make a living on the water.

Spyderco Tenacious Lightweight S35VN

In a surprising move, Spyderco upgrades both the construction—and, more importantly—the blade steel of one of the most popular budget models. The Tenacious Lightweight S35VN takes on the weight-saving construction offered by FRN handles with locking liners, while upgrading the 3.39" 8Cr13MoV budget stainless steel blade to premium CPM S35VN—upgrading its toughness and wear-resistance significantly. The satin-finished blade is offered in both plain and serrated edge options, but this time the FRN handles are done up in blue to make this premium version stand out from previous iterations. These changes improve the value and performance of the Tenacious while keeping its price under $100.

Spyderco Blackout Bug

At 1.7" when closed, the Sypderco Bug keychain knife is no longer than your finger, yet gives you a functional 1.31" blade you can carry with ease. This micro-sized slipjoint deploys its blade via the brand’s trademark Round Hole, keeping the signature design despite its size. The newest Reveal brings us a version with a black-coated 8Cr13MoV blade and a matching stainless steel handle with a black oxide coating. Along with its larger brothers the HoneyBee and Grasshopper, you’re never without options for a compact and useful blade.

Spyderco Chaparral Birdseye Maple

The Spyderco Chaparral is one of the brand’s classic lockbacks, with a core design that’s lightweight with a slim, in-pocket profile. This modern gentleman’s folder gets new Birdseye Maple scales that highlight the features of natural wood with dramatic grain patterns unique for each specimen. This new version gains dressed-up style while retaining the features that keep the Chaparral relevant to this day: a 2.81“ full flat ground CTS-XHP blade, excellent ergonomics with its handle shape and finger choil, sturdy back lock, and finally, the simple yet effective deep carry wire clip.

Been waiting years for Spyderco to make a Tenacious with better blade material. The Tenacious was also my first Spyderco knives.
