Spyderco Caribbean

Island vibe in nautical knife
1

The unique Spyderco Caribbean is not only eye-popping but an extreme
workhorse with a totally rust-proof LC200N Nitrogen-based steel blade.

Spyderco has been throwing “zingers” in their line dating all the way back to when founder Sal Glesser decided to put a hole in the blade. The Caribbean is one of those. Sure, it has an island vibe to it and the handle pattern could easily be a take-off on one of those colorful striped fish swimming around a reef, but there’s more to explore with this knife. The Caribbean is a modern take on the legendary “rope knife” used by seafarers over a century ago, particularly in its deep Sheepsfoot blade. But this blade style is a universal workhorse used by electricians, carpenters and carpet cutters alike.

At 8.54″ overall the Caribbean is a big fish and its vibrant striped black-and-yellow frame has an unmistakable island vibe. The 3.70″ satin-finished Sheepsfoot blade is of LC200N steel with a high Nitrogen content, making it totally rust-proof — typical of Spyderco’s Salt series knives. The 4.84″ handle is machined from black and yellow G10 that not only gives the Caribbean its attractive looks but adds ribbing to the surface for added purchase. Topping off this unique folder’s cool attributes is Spyderco’s patented Compression Lock located on the upper spine of the handle where it’s out of the way but easy to locate. A tip-up Titanium pocket clip backside makes for easy, at-the-ready carry — and it’s reversible for right or left handers.

Spyderco’s patented Compression lock, located on the back spine of the handle, is inconspicuous but easy to locate for disengaging the blade.

Why you’ll like it

Needless to say, if you like a knife that stands out in the crowd, the Caribbean will fulfill your wildest dreams. But this is a workhorse of a knife — one that will not only serve boaters and fishermen well but literally anyone who encounters tough cutting and slicing chores on a regular basis. It will take all the salt and sweat you can throw at it and never disappoint you with rust or corrosion — in fact, it will take virtually anything you throw at it. Suggested retail for the Spyderco Caribbean is $260, a not too salty price for a forever knife.
