In March of 2013, the Transportation Security Administration announced a plan to one again allow knives on airplanes with a litany of restrictions. Although the plan was withdrawn before anyone even could blink, Spyderco was ready for it with a unique new non-locking folder called the Roadie. In essence a high evolved and specialized pen knife, the Roadie's full-flat ground sheepsfoot style blade features a new Double Dent for fingernail-free, easy two-hand opening. An improved notched-joint mechanism holds the blade open during use and is backed by a subtle index finger choil to prevent accidental closure. Contoured fiberglass-reinforced nylon scales and well executed runs of jimping on the choil and spine enable this knife to perform well beyond its size. This unique knife is a great choice for localities with highly restrictive knife laws.
