Based on a design by custom knifemaker Serge Panchenko. This small yet capable folding knife is the size and shape of a military dog tag when closed, hence the name the Dog Tag Folder. The original version was released in 2014, since then there have been 4 different versions to come out.

This version of the Dog Tag features a handle machined from a solid piece of black carbon fiber/G-10 laminate. The blade and all metal hardware have a matching black titanium carbonitride coating. This non-locking folder features a spring bar and ball-bearing detent in the back handle scale to help hold the blade in place while in the open or closed positions.

The blade is made from CPM-S30V Stainless steel with a hardness of 59-61 Rc. The 1-1/4" sheepsfoot blade features Spyderco's Trademark Round Hole™ for fingernail-free ease of opening. The closed length measures 2". Weighs 0.9 oz. Made in Taiwan. Suggested Retail $84.95.

  • Origin


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.
