Carpenter is a world leader in the development, manufacture, and distribution of steels and specialty alloys. To honor their contributions to the cutlery industry, they asked Spyderco to produce a signature knife with all key components made entirely from Carpenter materials. Aptly named, the Foundry proudly features a premium CTS-XHP blade with a utilitarian clip-point profile and a full flat grind for exceptional edge geometry. Its handle is precision machined from 465 stainless steel and features a refined Reeve Integral Lock (R.I.L.) mechanism for optimal strength and reliability. To ensure convenient carry and easy accessibility, it includes a wire clip configured for right-side tip-up carry.
