Description
SP06TIP: C06TIP Tusk
Spyderco
 
The Tusk is both a state-of the art mariner’s tool and part of Spyderco’s history. The original design dates back to the early days of Spyderco’s beginning with Sal Glesser’s desire to produce a high performance mariner’s tool. The technology at the time was not available for the visionary concept. That’s all changed today, redesigned by Sal’s son Eric Glesser more than 25 years later has 
brought to light the original Tusk with new modern twists. Made from all highly rust resistant materials the Tusk features a blade made from LC 200 N and full titanium scales including a Reeve Integral Lock. The 300-series stainless steel marlinspike has round-to-square cross section to loosen knots efficiently with a high strength Ball Bearing Lock TM made with a ceramic ball bearing. The marlinspike includes one small sized shackle key in the marlinspike and another lager shackle key created when the marlinspike is closed. Both can effectively manage many different sized and types of shackles. Reversible Clip carry and lanyard hole give a variety of carry options. Thankfully, echnology caught up with Spyderco’s early vision and the Tusk’s time is now.

poking around
This is an interesting knife. I was just surprised how small the blade is. The spike totally dominates it. The blade is much smaller as compared to Delica although the handle length is about the same. The quality is good as you would expect from Spyderco. The frame lock is at 45-50%. There is no steel insert on the frame lock, such as found on some other Spydercos. But the detent ball seems to be ceramic. The handle feels a bit too thick at the end. And there is no jimping on the thumb ramp or finger choil. Lately I've been interested in the knives that have an extra tool for prying and poking and this knife fits the purpose. And it won't rust. Sweet. Love it's unique design.
