The Spyderco Subvert folding knife is a premium offering designed by Nati Amor - an Israeli goldsmith and custom knifemaker. His “Sabotage” design is the basis for this production model, and Spyderco has done an amazing job as usual taking the hallmarks of the original custom knife and implementing them in a high-end production model, making it more affordable while retaining the key design elements that make it unique.
Sometimes, bigger really is better. The Subvert has a 5.11” handle with plenty of real estate for a full four-finger grip. The clean and balanced ergonomic design of the Subvert makes it easy to hold and handle. The satin finished blade has a fully accessible round hole. The twin ball bearing pivot ensures a smooth one-hand-opening operation.
The handle of the Subvert knife is built on a framework of thick titanium liners. This gives it amazing structural strength. The contoured orange G 10 scales with a matching orange G 10 backspacer provides additional strength, and an easy-to-clean construction style.
A portion of the matte finished liner is exposed which creates an interesting visual line and allows easy access to the lanyard hole. The handle includes a stainless-steel polished pocket clip, which is configured to the right side for easy carry.
The Subvert opens and closes with a smooth action. The size of the blade and handle make it easy to handle and control. The smoothly textured handle also provides a solid grip in both dry and wet conditions.
The blade length is 4.14” and fashioned from Crucible’s CPM-S30V. The particle metallurgy process makes this a highly refined steel, taking a great edge and holding it well. It is all-around fantastic blade steel that provides high levels of performance and requires very little maintenance.
The satin finish on the blade looks incredible, and the full flat grind makes it an exceptional slicer. The blade’s recurve and large cutting belly create an elongated cutting edge that will slice efficiently every time.
Combine the tall, dynamic blade profile with the ball bearing pivot system, and you have a solid deployment every time that travels with a satisfying smoothness.
