The WolfSpyder Knife is an exclusive collaboration between Ray Mears and the prestigious Colorado-based knife makers Spyderco. It is the first ever folding knife to be designed by Ray Mears.
"I designed the WolfSpyder Knife to be the perfect pocket companion to the more heavy-duty tools of the bush." - Ray Mears
The WolfSpyder has been designed to distil the power and versatility of a classic fixed-blade bushcraft knife into a pocket-sized folding knife;
compact and light enough to be kept on your person, yet strong and comfortable enough to tackle the woods. Its traditional flat-bevel blade means that it will perform well at woodworking and other fundamental bushcraft tasks, while its carnassial nature makes it ideal for butchering and the field dressing of game.
The heart of the WolfSpyder lies in its premium 76 mm blade made from CPM-S30V stainless steel. Produced by the powder metallurgy process, this advanced alloy offers a superior balance of edge retention, corrosion resistance, toughness, and ease of maintenance — all highly prized qualities in a survival tool. The blade comes equipped with Spyderco's trademark Round Hole for one-handed opening.
Linking this robust blade to its handle is Spyderco's high-strength Compression Lock mechanism. Located on the spine of the handle to prevent unintentional release, this patented mechanism locks the blade securely open when in use and allows it to be safely and easily closed with only one hand. All folding knives should always be used with caution.
The WolfSpyder's handle consists of two durable G-10 scales joined by stainless steel spacers, creating a lightweight, easy-to-clean, open-backed structure. The handle's highly refined ergonomic contours provide a firm grip while helping to minimise fatigue during prolonged use, and incorporate an integral hand guard as an additional measure of safety. A sleek pocket clip allows for convenient right-side, tip-up carry and keeps this folding tool instantly accessible.
"As one of the world’s pre-eminent authorities on wilderness survival, Spyderco was honoured to have the opportunity to work with Ray on the production of a knife specifically designed for his discipline." – Spyderco
