Knife Description:
 
The Spyderco Civilian traces its lineage to one of Spyderco's oldest and most unique designs; the C12 Civilian. The Civilian was developed in response to a request from a U.S. Federal Law Enforcement Agency whose agents were regularly involved in Undercover Narcotics Operations.
 
In the 1990s Spyderco was approached by a specialized branch of U.S. Law Enforcement about making a knife for their undercover agents. These plain-clothes LEOs found themselves in situations where they often could not carry a firearm but carrying a knife was not a problem. Most had no formal training in self-defense tactics or MBC but as a last resort could use a blade to protect or extricate themselves from a life-threatening situation. This was how the Civilian model came to be.
 
The Civilian has a patented reverse "S" Blade that's intended to be used like an oversized claw. The tip is ground to an ultra-thin profile. Deeply curved and full at the belly, the 10.5 cm VG-10 Stainless Steel ground Blade excels in slicing and comes fully SpyderEdged.
 
Because of its distinctly specialized features it is not intended or designed for General Utility or Everyday Use. Curved in all the right places for ergonomic use and retention of the knife, the handle is black G-10.
 
A two position black Stainless Steel Clip supports discreet tip-up or tip down carry on the right side.  One of the most specialized CLIPITS in the Spyderco line-up, the Civilian is available in limited quantities.
 
A trademark 12 mm Spyderco Round Hole provides positive One- Handed Deployment of the blade with either hand, ensuring that the user can get the knife into action quickly and reliably.

The Spyderco Civilian comes with a Black Stainless Steel Clip (2 Ways – TU/TD).

The Spyderco Civilian is a knife that offers Powerhouse Cutting Performance in a practical Everyday-Carry Format.
