Kevin Smock is an award-winning industrial designer who is turning heads with his visionary handcrafted custom knives. Based on his SK23 custom folder, the Spyderco Smock translates his innovative style into a premium-quality production folder.
The hollow-ground blade of this knife is precision machined from CPM® S30V® stainless steel and includes both a Trademark Round Hole™ and an elegantly understated flipper opener. The flipper action is supported by a pair of special ball-bearing pivot washers and a dedicated secondary detent mechanism separate from the knife's lock. It is paired with a skeletonized handle featuring full stainless steel liners, textured carbon fiber/G-10 laminate scales, lightweight, open-backed construction, and a reversible, tip-up pocket clip for ambidextrous carry.
The Smock’s most unique feature, however, is the button release on its high-strength Compression Lock mechanism, which allows the knife to be safely and easily closed without placing your fingers near the blade’s edge. Slim, innovative and distinctly different, the Smock truly reflects Kevin Smock's unique approach to knifemaking.

Picked up knife in store while in the area on a business trip, gave it a look over and was very satisfied. Got it home to Illinois and took it apart to clean and oil, *severe* pitting on the inside of the handle. The sort of quality I'd expect to see at a factory seconds sale or scrapped. Reached out to Sypderco and they told me about their knife sharpening service... I own 13 Spydercos and this is the worst quality I've ever seen. I wouldn't expect this on their Walmart knives, let alone one with this price tag.
My new favorite spyderco.
