Spyderco Sage 1 – Badass Knife of the Week

A sage isn’t just someone who possesses wisdom but someone who transcends knowledge and strives for perfection. That’s what makes “sage” such a fitting name for our latest Badass Knife of the Week.

The Spyderco Sage represents a decades-long process of learning what makes the ideal everyday carry pocket knife. Because there is no such thing as a perfect knife (since each person has their own view of perfection), Spyderco set out to create a series of similar designs with different locking mechanisms.

The Sage 1 uses a Michael Walker liner lock, which has become one of the most ubiquitous locking mechanisms out there. The 3-inch blade opens with the patented Spyderco Round Hole and stays engaged with a steel liner you can disengage with your thumb.

Made from premium S30V steel, the leaf-shaped blade has a piercing point and curved belly for easy slicing.

Steel liners are enclosed by twill-woven carbon fiber and G-10 laminate handle scales. Not only are these pleasing to the eye but they also provide texture for the palm.

With a full flat ground blade, deep-carry wire pocket clip, and overall weight of 3.2 ounces, this may very be one of the best EDC knives for most people.
