Spyderco Slysz Bowie Folder Knife

This Spyderco Slysz Bowie Knife Designed by Marcin Slysz is a rugged, ready-to-go titanium folding knife. Marcin Slysz is a Polish custom knifemaker with a well-earned reputation for impeccable craftsmanship. His second collaborative design with Spyderco, the Spyderco Slysz Bowie™ Folder is a titanium-handled folding knife with a high-performance stainless steel blade and a Reeve Integral Lock (R.I.L.) mechanism.

The knife's Bowie-style blade features a long, straight clip point with a radiused spine. It is precision ground from Carpenter® CTS® XHP powder metallurgy stainless steel—a state-of-the-art alloy that combines the enviable performance characteristics of D2 with a higher degree of corrosion resistance. The blade is full-flat ground for exceptional edge geometry and includes a section of "jimping" (grooves) on the thumb ramp for enhanced control during use. For easy one-handed operation, it also includes Spyderco's Trademark Round Hole™.

The handle of the Spyderco Slysz Bowie Titanium Knife is constructed from two solid titanium scales, one of which forms the basis for its sturdy R.I.L. mechanism. Unlike most knives of its type that have flat scales, the scales of the Spyderco Slysz Bowie Knife w/Titanium Handle are gently radiused across their entire width to offer much better ergonomics. They are also stonewashed to a dull battleship gray that enhances their grip texture and provides greater control during use. The butt end of the handle features a unique G-10 spacer with two sections of strategically placed jimping to further enhance the knife's grip texture and aesthetic appeal. It's also home to a reversible deep-pocket wire clip that supports left or right-side tip-up carry and rides low in the pocket for maximum discretion.

The Slysz Bowie knife by Spyderco is beautiful and functional as well. I have wanted this knife for a long time but the price kept me from buying. As it was being discontinued by Spyderco, and I came across some money, I decided to go for it. It gives you midtech quality at a much lower price. Check out the reviews on Youtube. You won't regret the purchase!

I'm a real fan of Spyderco folding knives and this Slysz Bowie may already be my favorite of the many I own. It is robust and sturdy, yet ideally sized for front pocket carry. The blade takes a wonderful edge, opens smoothly, and locks up like a vault. The materials, fit, and finish are all first rate. The knife feels great in the hand and it has been a joy to use on jobs ranging from sharpening a pencil to gutting a whitetail deer.
