New for 2017. The Q Ball was designed by Spyderco's Eric Glesser. This all-purpose folding knife reflects the unique style of Eric's iconic early designs like the Dodo™ and Scorpius™. Combining an unconventional approach to ergonomics with a compact and capable blade design to create a stylish, easy-to-carry knife that cuts with impressive authority.

The modified wharncliffe-style blade has been precision machined from VG-10 stainless steel. It combines a straight cutting edge with a nicely executed full-flat grind to offer cutting performance far beyond its compact size. The blade's index-finger choil allows a forward “choked up" grip for enhanced power and precision, while the fully accessible Trademark Round Hole™ offers outstanding leverage for one-handed opening with either hand.

The handle features textured G-10 scales, stainless steel liners and a solid stainless steel back spacer. The lock is Spyderco's Ball Bearing Lock—a patented mechanism that offers exceptionally smooth operation and extreme lock strength. In the Q Ball, this lock showcases a white ceramic ball bearing, which is the inspiration for the knife's name. The deep-pocket wire clip is reversible for a left or right-hand tip up carry.

The blade measures 2-3/4" and has a hardness of 60-62. The closed length is 3-7/8". Weighs 3.4 oz. Suggested Retail $274.95.

  • 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.
