Spyderco Reveal 8 Puts Spotlight on FRN and Serrated Variants

The eighth Spyderco reveal is here. This one is on the smaller side, with no brand new knives; instead, it brings a selection of line expansions to existing models.

The unexpected headliner in Reveal 8 is the Resilience. Spyderco’s largest budget folder, the Resilience has been around in a G-10 configuration for years – and now, like many old standbys recently, it’s getting the FRN treatment. The Resilience Lightweight lives up to its name, at least in relative terms: at 4.4 oz., it’s an entire ounce lighter than its predecessor. The standard FRN Resilience has black scales, but there’s also another version coming out with blue FRN scales; this is an upgraded model with S35VN instead of 8Cr13MoV steel.

Serrated options are coming to a pair of very different knives. The tiny Manbug Wharncliffe, and the considerably less tiny Police 4 Lightweight, will be getting SpyderEdge variants this year.

New variations of the Delica, Endura, Endela, and Rescue are coming out with special blue and red accents, commemorating law enforcement and firefighters respectively. The Rescue model comes with full serrations as usual, but the others are sporting a full flat ground Combination Edge, a configuration unique to this line.

The presence of a full flat grind and Combination Edge together is unique to these new commemorative models

There’s less to report on the fixed blade front, with a single addition in the form of the latest Mule model. The gourmet steel of choice on this one is Z-Wear, a hardworking tool steel from Zapp.
