In essence, the Spyderco Roadie is a highly evolved penknife that is more practical and user friendly than its historical predecessors. Its most distinguishing characteristic—the “Double Dent”—is a pair of symmetrical dimples in the blade that provide a solid purchase for a fingernail-free two-handed opening. Far superior to a traditional nail nick, they also do not collect dirt or debris.

Unlike traditional penknives, the Roadie also features a subtle index-finger choil that increases control of the knife during use and acts as a safeguard against unintentional closure. These enhanced features elevate the Roadie far beyond the conventional penknife and set a new standard in socially friendly cutting tools.

The business end of the Roadie is a sheepfoot-style blade ground from Böhler-Uddeholm N690Co steel, a high-performance stainless steel alloyed with cobalt, molybdenum, and vanadium. Its wide blade profile and full-flat grind create incredible edge geometry for a keen, scalpel-sharp edge. The broad blade also provides real estate for the distinctive “Double Dent” feature that allows the blade to be easily opened with a pinch grip of the thumb and index finger. Although not intended as an opening feature, a Trademark Round Hole in the blade proudly identifies the Roadie as a Spyderco product.

At the base of the blade near its juncture with the handle there is a subtle forefinger choil (finger groove). Placing your index finger on the choil provides excellent control of the edge and creates a natural “stop” to help prevent the knife from closing unintentionally. Both the choil and the opposing thumb ramp on the spine of the blade feature jimping (textured grooves) to promote a positive, non-slip grip.

Unlike a traditional slipjoint, the Roadie’s blade is held open by an improved notched-joint mechanism. Its spring also forms the handle’s full-length back spine, giving it structural strength and providing a foundation for the durable fiberglass-reinforced-nylon (FRN) scales. The injection-molded scales are contoured for comfort and feature a recessed Spyderco “bug” logo on both sides.


The Roadie represents a quantum leap in the evolution of modern pocketknife design and sets a new standard of excellence for the breed. We are confident that yours will serve you well.

    Spyderco Roadie, small but big on style and quality

    Posted by Paul B on 16th Oct 2023

    As the title says, at first glance this seems a small knife, open it up and it fits a large hand. N690 steel and impeccable build quality as you would expect from Spyderco. UK legal, so implies with blade length law etc.

    Great small edc knife

    Posted by Richard Jones on 20th Mar 2022

    Great knife perfect for box opening etc, only gripe Is price, for the money you would be better to buy the urban or squeak, and get more knife for your money. But if your looking for a slim edc that disappears in the pocket then this is for you. Thanks HH

    Very high quality knife.

    Posted by Derek Jackson on 28th Aug 2021

    This knife is small but very capable and comfortable to hold. It is safe to use and opens with a firm click. The shape of the blade is excellent for most everyday tasks and feels robust. Highly recommended.

    Very small! I was surprised how small it was, it would of been nice to show size in photos, very lovely little knife, would make the perfect keychain or 5th pocket knife, for me personally it's not comfortable in my hand, well made and great design just wish I looked more closely at the spec, if I'd known it was that small I wouldn't of bought it

    Spyderco roadie

    Posted by A Baxter on 11th May 2021

    This was the first knife that I've ever been unsure about! When I first received it, I thought it was alot smaller than I expected for the price, and I wasn't sure about the blade shape either. Plus it wasn't the sharpest spyderco I've had new. After spending a few hours having a fiddle with it and getting use to the feel of it I came to realise that the ergonomics of it for something so small, and in my sausage fingers! Was quite brilliant. As I came to this realisation, it quickly became my 5th pocket EDC every day since. Its got a solid old school penknife feel to it with a bit of spydie magic. A solid build and very sturdy when open for something tiny. All in all Its definitely grown on me. It would of got a solid 5 stars if it wasn't for the not so sharp blade wich I have come to expect with a spyderco knife. Solid effort though and I would recommend to anyone looking for something to genuinely carry on a day to day basis.

    The roadie is a pocket rocket and more like the older traditional styled pen knifes. Love Sypderco's modern take on it and you don't even know it's in your pocket. Super little knife and also UK EDC legal so what's not to like
