The Efficient is the latest addition to Spyderco's popular Value Folder family of affordably priced full-service folding knives. Its compact, ergonomic design centers around a full-flat-ground drop point blade made from 8Cr13MoV stainless steel. The broad plain edge blade features an index finger choil and a gently curved spine that flows seamlessly into a handle built with full, skeletonized stainless steel liners, textured G10 scales, and a stainless steel back spacer. The handle's liners form the foundation of a sturdy liner lock mechanism that locks the blade securely open, yet allows easy one-handed release. To ensure convenient, ambidextrous carry and easy access, the Efficient comes complete with a reversible hourglass clip configured for tip-up carry.
