No woods walk is complete without a glamour shot of the knife you are carrying. This is the Spyderco Serrata, a fixed-blade knife designed by Stuart Ackerman, a custom knifemaker from New Zealand.
Stuart Ackerman is a custom knifemaker from New Zealand with a penchant for practical fixed-blade knives you can count on in a pinch. His Serrata fits that description. Its thick, leaf-shaped blade is made by casting 440C stainless steel-a process that creates dendritic (“tree-like”) crystalline structures that gives it exceptional strength, ductility, and cutting ability to the steel. The blade is full-flat-ground for strength and is distally tapered to reduce weight and drag, enhancing edge geometry for exceptional balance. Its contoured handle scales are black G-10, shaped to fill the hand and eliminate pressure spots during extended use. The Serrata has a custom-molded Boltaron sheath with G-Clip attachment.
