Designed by noted Master at Arms, James Keating, the original Spyderco Chinook distilled the quintessential qualities of the classic American Bowie Knife into a capable all-purpose folding knife. The Chinook 4 not only revives that groundbreaking design, but elevates it to all levels of perfection. Leaner and sleeker than its predecessors, the Chinook 4s lines feature a dramatically swept full flat ground clip-point blade made from DCPM S30V stainless steel. Its signature handle, which brackets the hand for a solid grip, is built with skeletonized full stainless steel liners, a stainless back spacer, and textured G-10 scales. It is also home to patented Power Lock, an advanced lock mechanism that combines extreme strength with smooth operation. Reversible hourglass clip provides left or right-side up tip-up carry and makes every aspect of this knife completely ambidextrous.
