ADVOCATE™ TI

Spyderco's Advocate is a production version of custom knifemaker Gayle Bradley's first flipper-style folder design. Drawing from his extensive experience as a competitive cutting champion, its blade is precision machined from CPM M4—a high-performance tool steel renowned for its extreme edge-holding ability. The full-flat-ground, PlainEdged blade includes both a prominent index finger flipper and a fully functional Trademark Round Hole that allow a full spectrum of one-handed opening methods. To ensure a high-speed, low-drag action, the blade also pivots between special friction-reducing ball-bearing washers.

The Advocate's handle consists of two radiused, 3D-machined, solid titanium scales with a unique "orange peel" texture that is both visually striking and provides an enhanced grip. The reverse-side scale forms the foundation of a high-strength Reeve Integral Lock (R.I.L.) mechanism with a long-wearing stainless steel interface that serves double duty as an overtravel stop. The handle also boasts an open-backed construction style to minimize weight and simplify cleaning and a reversible hourglass clip that provides convenient left or right-side tip-up carry. A faithful rendition of one of Bradley’s most unique custom designs, the Advocate sets a new standard in high-performance flipper-style folding knives.
