Designed by award-winning Swedish custom knifemaker Michael Henningsson, the Spyderco Vrango is an extremely practical cutting tool with a distinctive aesthetic style. Named for the small island in the Gothenburg archipelago of Sweden that Henningsson calls home, the Vrango’s most distinctive feature is its uniquely shaped CPM® S30V® stainless steel blade, which uses a deep hollow grind to yield an Americanized tanto-style tip and a slightly recurved primary edge. As an avid fisherman, Henningsson found the recurved profile provided just enough “bite” to keep fishing line and net from sliding off the cutting edge. Combining the recurve with a slightly angled hollow grind created a utilitarian point and straight terminal cutting edge that are strong yet offer much better edge geometry than typical tanto points. This unique blade is housed in a handle that consists of a full-length backspacer, handle scales, and LinerLock mechanism, all machined from solid titanium and anodized a brilliant blue hue. Both scales are inlaid with carbon fiber inserts that mirror the graceful lines of the handle profile. To allow easy attachment of a fob or lanyard, the backspacer extends beyond the butt end of the scales and offers a generous lanyard hole. A reversible stainless steel clip attaches to either side of the pivot-pin end of the knife, providing convenient, ambidextrous, tip-down carry. An amazing fusion of artistic expression and utilitarian function, the Vrango is as practical as it is beautiful. MSRP $359.95
