Spyderco’s Sage Series™ is a unique family of knives that showcases the innovative lock mechanisms that have helped define modern folding knife technology. Every knife in the series features the same basic design parameters—a full-flat-ground, leaf-shaped CPM® S30V® blade, an ergonomic handle design with textured forefinger choil and thumb ramp, and a reversible tip-up wire clip. However, each knife is distinct in that it highlights a specific lock mechanism and acknowledges the trendsetting knifemaker or designer who invented it.


The Sage™ 5 highlights Spyderco’s own Compression Lock™ mechanism. Although often mistaken as a “LinerLock on the back of the handle,” the Compression Lock is actually radically different. In a Compression Lock, the blade’s tang ramp faces upward toward the handle’s spine, rather than toward the butt of the handle as in a LinerLock. When the blade is opened, the lock bar is sandwiched between the ramp and the knife’s stop pin. Pressure that challenges the lock is transferred to the width of the bar—not its length—and literally tries to crush it between the blade ramp and the stop pin. This patented mechanism is substantially stronger than most LinerLocks and its location allows the knife to be safely closed with only one hand without placing your fingers in the path of the edge.


The skeletonized stainless steel liners that form the framework of the Sage 5’s lock are nested into textured carbon fiber/G-10 laminate scales. Open-backed construction reduces the knife’s weight and allows easy cleaning, while a reversible deep-pocket wire clip provides convenient tip-up carry on either side of the body. Showcasing one of Spyderco’s proudest contributions to modern knife technology, the Sage 5 is an extremely capable all-purpose cutting tool.

    Superb

    Posted by Alijami on 31st Jul 2019

    I wouldn't normally buy a knife at this price point but I decided my collection should have a compression lock. It's locking so not EDC for me. For anybody who can this is a superb EDC. A comfortable sub-3 edge, S30V, OHO, a broad leaf profile a little less threatening in appearance than a UKPC. Full flat grind on a 3mm stock, therefore strong. Nicely weighty but not heavy. F&F is exceptional Enzo standard. And visually, the carbon fibre over G10 is a wow. I wondered if I would feel guilty at pushing the boat out. No its exceptional. Just a pity it won't do pocket time.

    Sage 5

    Posted by Gerwyn on 21st Mar 2017

    This is a little gem of a blade fit n finish is lovely. It's sharp enough straight out of the box and a lovely sized Knife for the everyday carry. The handles are nicely done with the carbon fibre and G10 but the true joy of this knife is the compression lock it's just a beautiful thing as anyone that has a PM2 or the new PM3 will know. I love this sage 5 it is simply beautiful But that's might just be me. If you're in any doubt YouTube and have a look then just take the plunge it will be one of your favourites I bet ..
