In early 2013, the Transportation Security Administration announced a plan to once again allow knives on airplanes. Although the plan was later withdrawn, Spyderco was ready for it with a unique non-locking design called the Roadie. In essence a highly evolved penknife, the Roadie’s full-flat-ground sheepsfoot-style blade features a new “Double Dent” for fingernail-free, easy two-handed opening. An improved notched-joint mechanism holds the blade open during use and is backed by a subtle index-finger choil to prevent accidental closure. Contoured fiberglass reinforced-nylon (FRN) scales and strategically placed jimping (grooves) on the choil and spine provide comfortable ergonomics that enable this knife to perform well beyond its size. Sure to set a new standard in modern pocketknives, the Roadie is available in a variety of color choices.
