Spyderco Just Dropped A Blacked-Out Corrosion-Proof Automatic EDC Knife

When it comes to choosing an everyday carry knife, we’re almost always expected to make compromises regarding their appearance, materials, format, and more. But, every once in a while, a blade comes along that hits nearly every positive note we could hope for. In this case, it’s Spyderco’s Autonomy 2 automatic knife that just dropped.

The first of this folding knife’s many high notes is its blacked-out appearance — which looks spectacular but also has the added bonus of making the blade even more durable than it would normally be, as the color is the direct result of a DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) coating. Of course, even without that, the blade steel — LC200N — is already exceptionally impressive for its unrivaled corrosion-resistance. Pair that with a patented design, G-10 handles, and a buttery-smooth and lightning-quick automatic deployment mechanism and the Autonomy 2 might just go down in history as one of Spyderco’s best all-around releases. Pick one up for yourself right now for $245.

Purchase: $245
