Our incredibly popular line of Value Folders takes a new turn with the Astute. Although it shares the same basic construction and materials as its brethren, it features a sleeker, more stylish design that is amazingly pocket friendly.
The long, gently curved cutting edge and full-flat grind of its 8Cr13MoV stainless steel blade give it impressive cutting power and point utility. Its ergonomic, open-backed handle features full stainless steel liners for strength and textured G-10 scales to ensure a secure, non-slip grip.
The sturdy LinerLock mechanism locks the blade securely when in use and a four-position pocket clip and lined lanyard hole allow all possible carry preferences. Simply put, the Astute sets a new standard in affordable Spyderco style.
Blade Length: 3.02"
Overall Length: 6.91"

Very impressed with the all-new (summer of 2020) Spyderco Astute. My first from Spyderco’s value folder family of knives. Designed by the same Hungarian architect, who was previously responsible for the Hungarian Folder in Spyderco’s ethnic series. Great $45 price. Fantastic ergonomics. The humb flick, spydie flick, reverse spydie flick, spyder drop are all there. Excellent build quality. Solid blade centering. Very even secondary bevel. Razor sharp. A great all around EDC blade. Also my first experience ordering from REC. In the past, I purchased knives costing 5x as much from a half dozen other online distributers. However, I have rarely received the same type professional packaging. Even with a few little extras thrown in and a nice thank you note. IMO the Spyderco Astute and REC are both highly recommended!
