SP123CFP: Sage - Carbon Fiber Handle

A Sage is someone wise in judgment and experience. It’s reasonable assuming they achieved that title through trial, error and extending their best effort at every opportunity. If that definition can be applied to something tangible it would be an item created from experience and striving for quality and performance at the highest level. If said item were a pocketknife we could call it a Sage.

The C123 Sage represents Spyderco’s 30-year pledge to knife crafting and learning to make better knives at every available opportunity. The plan is to offer an ongoing series of Sage Folders with many of the different and ingenuous locking devices and mechanisms the knife industry has to offer.

This model is in recognition of knifemaker Michael Walker’s contribution to the knife industry with his creation of the LinerLock® and ball bearing detent method of locking open a folding knife. It pairs together a drop-point shaped CPM-S30V blade with a twill-woven carbon fiber handle and LinerLock. Categorized as a mid-sized folder, the blade is flat-ground and PlainEdged. Designed for comfort and in-the-hand-ergonomics, the carbon fiber handle is vibrant with multi-colored fibers bonded together when manufacturing the carbon fiber. The weaving runs deep, making ridges and textures for the palm to adhere to while gripping and cutting. A silhouette wire pocket clip adjusts for left- or right-hand carry.

Blade goes WAY off center - was my favorite EDC
I've been carrying my SAGE for 2 years, love it. Blade was never centered but today noticed it riding against the side of the liner. Very disappointed. I use it daily but never pry with it. Guess I'll take it apart and clean it and see if I can get it to not rest against the side. Not sure if you can oder pairs for it yet.Overall... this has been my go to EDC.... I try other and almost always go back to the SAGE, love it except for the blade centering issue. I don;t expect it perfect but I do expect it to not rest agains the liner. Pocket clip is an all time favorite.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Lock Type, Handle Material, Overall Quality, Pocket Clip, Ease of Opening, Handle Feel, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Material
Cons: None
I love the sage series. This knife perfecis spot on. The blade was perfectly centered and the action smooth as it could be. I like the carbon fiber scales that added to the sophisticated styling. The S30V was hair shaving from the box. And as all Taichung Spyderco knives I've seen was top notch assembled. The QC from that factory can rival any there is and I definitely recommend anyone interested go for it.
