About Spyderco:

When you purchase a Spyderco you are buying a high-quality reliable cutting tool designed and manufactured for peak performance and ergonomic comfort.

Those Who Know carry Spyderco.

Knife Description:

The U.S. Army's 82nd Airborne Division contacted Spyderco sourcing a better knife for their Jumpmasters.

When jumping out of a plane, Airborne Servicemen are attached to a static line, jumping one per second with a Jumpmaster insuring they get out and are clear of the plane and next jumper.

If someone doesn't clear, the Jumpmaster is ready with a reliable cutting tool. Once clear of the aircraft jumpers still need a reliable and quick-cutting blade in case they need to cut themselves free.

The Army's 82nd Airborne set out what they wanted in a knife and Spyderco produced the Spyderco Jumpmaster Knife with a rust-proof hollow-ground H-1 Blade and fully serrated Sheepfoot (Rescue) profile to quickly cut through ropes, lines, webbing or fabric.

To keep the knife firmly in hand, the handle with skeletonized Tang is made of Fiberglass Reinforced Nylon (FRN) that is Bi-Directionally Textured® for a secure grip. The tang of the blade is skeletonized reducing the weight even more.

The fully ambidextrous knife carries solidly in an Injection Molded Polymer Sheath designed to carry against the body or calf. Nylon straps offer multiple attachment options. A lanyard hole in both the blade and handle are for additional back-up attachment.
