Best Spyderco EDC Knife


Spyderco Sage 1 - Blade DetailA while back I took a look at the Spyderco Sage 2. The Sage 2 is an absolutely fantastic knife and with it’s eye catching titanium handle, I find that the Sage 1 often plays second fiddle. Case in point, it has taken me several months since reviewing the Sage 2 to pen my Sage 1 review. That is a real shame actually, because I happen to think that the Sage 1 may actually be the better EDC knife – at least for me. I can safely say that the Sage 1 is nothing short of a fantastic knife. If have your eye on the Sage series, I think it would be very foolish to ignore the .

So lets take a close look and see why I like this knife so much.

Purpose

In my mind, the Sage 1 is the PERFECT EDC knife. Yes, you read that right. The Sage 1 is my personal EDC blade and for my purposes I couldn’t ask for a better knife. What I like about the Sage 1 is that it has perfect EDC proportions, excellent materials, outstanding fit and finish and it carries very well.

In addition to EDC, I think this knife is a great collector’s piece (I know plenty of people who have all 3 of the knives in the Sage series) and while the Sage 1 is not billed as a tactical knife, it could certainly fulfill an emergency tactical role. Finally, the carbon fiber and stealthy carry make this a great option for a gentleman’s folder.

General Dimensions and Blade Details

As for the dimensions we have a 3″ blade, an overall length of 7 1/8″ and a weight of 3.2 ounces. Going back to me calling the Sage 1 the “perfect” EDC knife, the dimensions of the Sage 1 are ideal for EDC in my book. I really don’t like carrying anything smaller, and anything bigger starts to raise some eyebrows (sad, but true). The Sage 2 actually handles like a bigger knife, but it remains small and is people friendly.

The blade is a classic Spyderco leaf shape given a nice full flat grind. There is a decent amount of belly and the tip has a sturdy point while still being strong. This is a very practical blade shape that is also non-threatening to people who don’t understand knives.
