From the Manufacturer:

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, PlainEdge™ blade includes both a prominent index-finger flipper and a fully functional Trademark Round Hole™ that together 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 3-D-machined solid titanium scales that are radiused across their width and feature a unique "orange peel" finish that is both visually striking and provides an enhanced grip texture. The precision machining of these features ensures maximum comfort in the hand and contributes to the knife's stunning, custom-quality appearance. The reverse-side handle scale forms the foundation of a high-strength Reeve Integral Lock (R.I.L.) mechanism with a stainless steel interface. This interface ensures a secure lock-up, a long service life, and serves double duty as an overtravel stop to maintain proper spring tension of the lock bar. 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.

The 3-1/2" drop point blade has a hardness of 60-62 Rc. The closed length measures 4-1/2". Weighs 4 oz. Made in Taiwan. Suggested Retail $379.95.

Spyderco

In 1981, Spyderco ventured into the world of knife making by introducing their first folding knife, the C01 Worker. This knife was the first in the industry to feature a round hole in the blade design that allowed for fast, one-hand opening, now the company’s trademark, and the first to feature a pocket clip. The trademarked round hole is the most recognizable feature of a Spyderco knife and it facilitates the easy opening and closing of these knives with one hand while also offering convenient access and maximum control while opening as well as accommodating large, small or gloved hands.

Spyderco’s recognizable appearance is a result of designing ergonomically functional tools rather than applying lipstick and nylons to a pocketknife. Spyderco’s knives may look unusual, but they will never be called unusable or undependable. When you purchase a Spyderco knife, you are buying a high quality reliable cutting tool that was designed and manufactured for peak performance and ergonomic comfort.
