    Default Review: Spyderco Sage 5 (3.03in, S30V, Carbon fiber wrapped G10)

    Spyderco Sage 5 Review


    I bought this knife recently from Knife Center, so I decided to do a review of it. It's a slightly upgraded version of the Sage, with a new compression lock and new scales- and new for 2016. Since this review the compression lock has broken in a bit better, and now I can do a middle finger deployment safely. I like it more each day, and it's a great compact EDC blade. Amyway, here's my short review of it- hope you like it.






    And here's a follow up video to the review.

    Are you cutting on a rock??

    Yeah... I use the choil all the time. I've been carrying it for over a week now and I'm really getting used to it. I think it's replacing my endura 4.

    I'm a fan of the compression lock from the PM2, this might be just an ideal smaller edc option I've been searching for a while now, thanks for the review!

    Yeah, once that compression lock is broken in on the PM2 it falls into place. I'd like to see how this lighter blade falls after a few months of breaking in and carry.
