Spyderco's model Proficient takes the concept of the traditional “do-all” bushcraft knife and elevates it to new levels of performance with state-of-the-art materials and manufacturing methods. Designed by wilderness expert Chris Claycomb of Bushcraft UK, the Proficient functions perfectly with traditional bushcraft skills and cutting methods while offering superior durability, edge retention, cutting performance, and corrosion resistance.
The Proficient’s blade is crafted from vanadium-rich CPM® S90V particle-metallurgy stainless steel and boasts a full-flat grind for low-friction cutting performance.
The scales of its full-tang handle are painstakingly machined from solid carbon fiber. They are then carefully contoured and polished to eliminate hot spots and ensure maximum comfort during prolonged use. A lined lanyard hole of 5mm Ø allows for easy attachment of a lanyard, wrist strap, or security cord. The Proficient’s only bow to tradition is its handsomely crafted leather pouch-style sheath configured for convenient belt carry.
