Spyderco Cat Folding Knife Discount
September 25th, 2013 – The Spyderco Cat C129G is a fantastic little EDC folding knife and Amazon currently has it on discount for just $39.32 shipped. That’s a decent discount considering the Cat usually sells for $50+ after shipping and handling is factored in. If you are in need of a small and unobtrusive folding knife the Spyderco Cat is a solid option at this price.
Quick Review of the Spyderco Cat
The Cat is very lightweight (2.5 ounces) thanks to skeletonized liners. The 2.5″ leaf shaped blade is made from 440C stainless steel which should provide good edge retention given Spyderco’s outstanding heat treatment. The Cat’s 440C should be a level up compared to similar lower end steels such as AUS-8 and 8Cr13MoV. Handle material is a somewhat smooth textured G10 that should provide adequate grip. The locking mechanism found on the Spyderco Cat is a Walker liner lock, which is beefy enough to provide a strong and secure lockup. The Spyderco Cat also features pillar construction with a flow through design that will allow for easy cleaning and traditional torx screws hold the knife together, so it can be disassembled quickly if need be. The wire pocket clip featured on the Spyderco Cat is one of the best. It allows for a deeper carry than most standard pocket clips while adding very little weight to the knife. The pocket clip is reversible for left or right handed tip up carry. And of course, blade deployment is handled by the classic round Spyderco opening hole.
The Spyderco Cat is available at Amazon (here) for under $40 with free shipping.
