This knife is just absolutely awesome, and eye-catching in every way. As one of Spyderco's Ethnic Series knives, this model is increasingly harder to find (especially in this condition), and prices have been increasing steadily over the years. This knife will come with everything as it does from Spyderco factory box, paperwork, etc. A few years ago, I sent the knife back to Spyderco to have the Carraca system replaced (it had stopped working), and the knife cleaned and oiled.
The knife is clean, functions flawlessly, and has been sitting in my safe ever since. The following information was taken directly from Spyderco's product webpage. Unique to the Navaja is the Carraca or ratcheting sound it produces when the blade opens and closes.Carraca ratcheting generates a reaction similar to the sound of chambering a round in a firearm, distinctively announcing the knife's presence and has been attributed to deterring a criminal or criminal behavior. American Knifemaker Ed Schempp built a reputation on comingling Ethnic cutlery with the modern folder.
His Spyderco Navaja collaboration incorporates the mystique of the Carraca with a traditional-shaped handle made with textured carbon fiber/G-10 laminate and stainless steel bolsters. The blade is Crucible Steel CPM S30V with the customary Navaja concave blade shape.
Inside the handle is a Michael Walker LinerLock with a textured liner. Outside the handle is an hourglass pocket clip with four-way compatible positioning, enabling the knife to be carried and drawn from the pocket tip-up/tip-down and/or left/right handed.
The Spyderco Navaja showcases a form of historical and cultural cutlery made using modern materials and design engineering.
