Spyderco’s new Lil Matriarch packs the extreme cutting power of Spyderco’s Reverse “S” edge profile into the lightweight, compact handle of the popular Delica4. The result is a pocket-sized powerhouse that is ideal for both personal-defense and utility use.
The Lil Matriarch is the newest member of a family of knives inspired by one of Spyderco’s most unique designs: the C12 Civilian. Developed in response to a request from a U.S. federal law enforcement agency, the Civilian was a purpose-designed personal-defense weapon for undercover narcotics officers operating without firearms. In the late 1990’s, its revolutionary Reverse “S” blade profile was integrated with the fiberglass-reinforced nylon (FRN) handle of the popular Endura model to create the Matriarch and, in 2012, the Matriarch2. The Lil Matriarch continues this evolution, providing the same devastating cutting power of its predecessors in an even more compact package.
The Lil Matriarch’s blade is hollow ground from VG-10 stainless steel and features a fully serrated SpyderEdge cutting edge. A Trademark Round Hole™ supports swift, one-handed opening and along with a sturdy back lock mechanism and four-position clip make the knife’s carry and operation completely ambidextrous. Its injection-molded fiberglass-reinforced-nylon handle is supported by skeletonized stainless steel liners features Bi-Directional Texturing™ for a secure grip in even the most demanding circumstances. MSRP $119.95
