Description: The Spyderco Sage is a folder that is supposed to be a tribute to different locking methods from different makers over time. As of this writing, there are only two versions available, a Titanium Frame Lock and Carbon Fiber Liner Lock version available. The Knife is made in Taiwan using US-made CPM-S30V Steel.
The Third Generation of the Sage introduces a newly designed Bolt-Action Lock by Blackie Collins. This is a significant improvement over previous models and allows super-smooth opening and spydie drops as well as a solid Steel Locking Mechanism.
The Forth Generation Sage was introduced in early 2012 and features a change in lock type again to a mid-lock designed by the late Al Mar. This knife features a lock designed by Mar and McBurnette and beautiful Arizona Ironwood handles.
