Spyderco Rubicon Carbon Fiber Flipper Knife Review


The Spyderco Rubicon Carbon Fiber flipper is a labor of love designed by custom knife maker Peter Carey. A modified drop point blade is crafted from premium CPM-S30V stainless steel featuring deep hollow grinds and a flat ground upper swedge to tackle the toughest tasks. It rides a specially designed ball bearing pivot for the smoothest of opening whether it be via the Trademark Round Hole™ or integral flipper mechanism. The handle is built like a rock from skeletonized Titanium liners that are covered with smooth 3D machined carbon fiber scales. Accenting this stunner are circular orange G10 inlays around the tri-spoke pivot and a matching orange G10 backspacer. The Spyderco Rubicon comes with a contoured pocket clip for single position tip-up carry.

About Spyderco

Greetings from Golden, Colorado.

Since starting Spyderco we’ve been told our knives are different, peculiar, even out there. All true. Thinking beyond established knife industry barriers allowed us to introduce new and radical innovations to the knife culture including: One-hand opening, serrations on a folder and a clip to attach a knife to a pocket. We didn’t go into business to rake in a mountain of dough we’re here for more selfish reasons- indulging our passion for creating knives. Spyderco is definitely out of the norm in the knife industry in our dedication to researching and developing fresh, improved and better performing materials all with function and reliability being key.
