Argentinian knifemaker Javier Vogt is an expert in artistic, yet always practical designs. The beautifully curved blade of the Tropen can be opened in three different ways - with the signature Spyderco thumb opening, with a flipper or with the Emerson wave opener. The flat-ground blade on ball bearings consists of CPM-S-30V and is rather charismatic. Contoured and polished, the G10 handle has inset steel plates that also hold the compression lock. With a removable clip (tip-up/r).
