New for 2016: Spyderco teams up with Ray Mears to create "WolfSpyder" folder

A new Spyderco folder slated for release this year is most certainly going to grab the attention of the bushcraft community. The "WolfSpyder," a CMP-S30V, scandi-grind folding knife designed by Ray Mears himself, is one of Spyderco's most interesting releases in years. Here is a short description from their 2016 catalog:

"Designed by Ray Mears, founder of the Woodlore School of Wilderness Bushcraft, the Spyderco WolfSpyder was made to be compact and light enough to carry every day but strong and comfortable enough to tackle the woods. The scandi-ground s30v blade should perform well at woodworking tasks, and Spyderco’s proprietary compression lock ensure that the blade will hold tough. Also, the blade will be manufactured in Spyderco’s Golden, CO facility."

Another feature of the WolfSpyder that should tickle the fancy of longtime RMB readers is that it will be made right here in the Good Ol' USA, in RMB's home state of Colorado (Golden, to be specific).

I will be attending SHOT Show 2016 in a couple of weeks, and should be able to get more information such as pricing and a release date, as well as in-person photos, so keep checking back for updates, which I will post here!
