The beloved Meerkat is getting a makeover Sprint Run style with a clever burnt orange FRN handle and HAP40/SUS 410 Laminate blade steel. This limited production run from Spyderco Knives is fully ambidextrous, ergonomic and just right for a small every day carry.
The Blade: Fully flat ground blade utilizes a HAP40/SUS 410 stainless laminate. Created using the powdered metallurgy process, HAP40 possesses outstanding toughness and high abrasion resistance. The core is bound by layers of SUS 410 martensitic stainless steel. The transition between the core and outer layers is visible just above the blade’s cutting edge.
The Handle: Burnt orange FRN handle scales adds some pop to the Meerkat family. The front of the grip has a half choil and pronounced finger groove that allow for an incredibly comfortable grip. It has a well-curved end and contours galore. The Meerkat’s hidden secret is its locking mechanism known as the Phantom Lock. Completely hidden within its handle, the mechanism securely locks the blade once opened. To close, simply pivot the two handle scales in opposite directions. A reversible wire clip is attached for tip down carry.
HAP40 Tool Steel: HAP40 contains generous amounts of tungsten, molybdenum, vanadium and cobalt. This combination creates exceptional toughness and high abrasion resistance. Both of which are key qualities of a superior blade steel. However, its relatively low chromium content (4.0%) makes it susceptible to corrosion. Regular maintenance and oil is required.
