Spyderco
 
Bushcraft is the study and practice of primitive wilderness and survival skills. The primary tool for this challenging discipline is a knife—typically a simple, old-school fixed-blade made with traditional materials. The Spyderco Proficient, however, has changed all that and is ushering in a new era of high-tech bushcraft blades. Designed by wilderness expert Chris Claycomb of Bushcraft UK, the Proficient takes the concept the classic bushcraft tool and expresses it with state-of-the-art materials and manufacturing methods. The result is a knife that functions perfectly with traditional bushcraft skills while offering superior durability, edge retention, cutting performance, and corrosion resistance. Instead of traditional carbon steel and an axe-like "Scandi" (Scandinavian) grind, the Proficient's blade is crafted from vanadium-rich CPM S90V particle-metallurgy stainless steel and boasts a full-flat grind for low-friction cutting performance. The scales of its full-tang handle are painstakingly machined from solid carbon fiber. They are then carefully contoured and polished to eliminate hot spots and ensure maximum comfort during prolonged use. A lined lanyard hole allows for easy attachment of a lanyard, wrist strap, or security cord and along with two blind stainless steel bolts permanently secures the scales to the tang. The Proficient’s only bow to tradition is its handsomely crafted leather pouch-style sheath configured for convenient belt carry.
