Designed for budget-conscious knife users who demand genuine Spyderco quality, the Polestar is one of the best values on the market. Its leaf-shaped plain edge blade is full-flat ground from American-made CTS BD1 stainless steel and features Spyderco's signature Trademark Round Hole for quick, ambidextrous, one-hand opening. The blade is paired with an ergonomic, lightweight, open-backed handle built with full, skeletonized stainless steel liners and textured gray G10 scales. A liner lock mechanism locks the blade securely open when in use, yet is easily released thanks to a strategically placed relief cut in the obverse side of the handle. A four-position hourglass clip with a broad, triangular base gives the choice of tip-up or tip-down carry the left or right side. If you're looking for the key qualities of a Spyderco knife in a value-friendly package, the Polestar is a winner.
