Spyderco Meerkat – C64


Model Name: Meerkat
Model Reference: C64
Designer: Sal Glesser
MSRP: $49.95, $109.95 (2012)
Description: The Meerkat is the first and only knife from Spyderco to feature the Phantom Lock, which is a hidden lock that operates by sliding the front scale downwards, allowing the blade to unlock and close. One of the criticisms of this lock is that it is easy to accidently disengage under harder use. This knife was initially made in the USA with 440C steel, and then Japan with AUS-6. The knife was also produced with a reverse “S” blade, similar to the Cricket. The Spyderco Meerkat was re-released in a sprint run for 2009-2010 in Blue/Grey FRN and VG-10 Steel.
