One of the more exciting collaborations that Spyderco has ever done is surely the Drunken™. Well known in knife circles, Dmitry Sinkevich is easily one of the hottest custom makers in the industry today. His first Spyderco collaboration, the Drunken, showcases his ability to combine artistic design and unparalleled craftsmanship with practical function.
The blade of this knife is full-flat ground from CPM® S90V stainless steel and features a tumbled finish. It is paired with a stylishly ergonomic handle that includes a titanium scale on one side and a solid carbon fiber scale and nested stainless steel liner on the other. The titanium scale is “webbed” to reduce weight and forms the basis for the knife’s Reeve Integral Lock (R.I.L.) mechanism, which includes a long-wearing stainless steel interface.
Both scales are meticulously machined with the intricate “drunken” texture that gives the knife its name and are accented by a matching color-anodized backspacer, pivot assembly, and right-side, tip-up pocket clip.
