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
