Based on one of Serge Panchenko’s most popular custom designs, the Spyderco Dog Tag (C188ALTIP) folding knife is a unique departure from Spyderco’s typical construction methods. The overall length of the knife is 3.23" and at 0.9 oz it is extremely lightweight.
The sheepfoot blade is made from premium SPM S30V stainless steel with a stonewash finish. To protect the edge when closed, the blade is chisel ground with a single flat bevel on the front side. The trademark Spyderco Round Hole in the blade allows easy opening, and a subtle swedge (unsharpened bevel) and a decorative fuller (groove) near the spine add a touch of style. The blade’s pivot is also accentuated by a round aluminum disk that provides stability and structural strength as well as an aesthetic touch. The blade measures 1.23" in length and 0.118" in thickness.
The Spyderco Dag Tag has a single-sided handle which fabricated from solid green and blue coloured titanium and accurately replicates the size and shape of a military dog tag. The center of the handle scale is machined to create an integral spring bar that houses a steel ball bearing for the blade’s detent mechanism. At the top of the handle is an aluminium back strap that defines the blade’s limits of travel in both the open and closed positions and provides protection from the edge when the knife is closed.
A non-locking folder, the Dog Tag’s blade is held in place in the open position by a detent mechanism. A ball bearing in the handle scale’s integral spring arm indexes holes in the tang of the blade to hold it both closed and open. Since the blade does not lock, care should be taken during use to apply cutting pressure only in a direction that maintains the knife’s open position.
