Gryphon M-10 FFG Utility-Boot Knife
Since Bob Terzuola, or "Bob T" as I call him, first showed me his prototype for what we would later dub the M-10, I was thrilled
by its straight-forward design. I believed then, and still do, that it's the finest fixed blade knife in its size range. The M-10
falls into that "just right" category of being large enough to accomplish most tasks, yet small enough to be carried with ease. The
handle fits your hand perfectly, whichever grip you choose. It's obvious that fixed blade knives, by their very nature, are stronger
and safer than folding knives. The downside of fixed blade knives has always been their difficulty to conceal, and the negative
attention they can bring. That problem is solved with the M-10 and its "just right" size. The full tang blade is given a black DLC
(Diamond Like Coating) coating to reduce glare and for extra blade protection in harsh environments. The indestructible handle
is made from DuPont Zytel, which is checkered to give you a positive gripping surface.
So many good knives are limited by the inadequacies of their sheaths. I'm a firm believer that a sheath should not only
protect the knife from loss and the elements, but it should also protect its owner. One more factor to consider is how comfortable
is it to carry, and how reliably can it be deployed under stress. This quest has led me to the best sheath makers available, and
we've teamed up with three of the best in the business.
The sheath for this version is made by SheathPro, and they're using .080 Boltaron (PVC Rigid Plastic) for the sheath.
Each SheathPro sheath is built by hand, and not the normal "cookie cutter" sheaths you see elsewhere. The quality is top-notch, and
while you may not have realized it, you've probably seen their work before, as they make many of the fixed blade sheaths for Spyderco.
Easy to carry, and quick to deploy, the M-10 in its SheathPro sheath attaches to your belt via the Spyderco G-Clip. Should you
prefer to attach to a harness or pack, you can use the G-Clip or simply remove it and lash directly onto your gear.
Given all of these features, or better yet, get one in your hand and you'll see why the Gryphon M-10 is
still my personal favorite! Jeff

Fantastic little fixed blade for utility or self defence

This is fantastic little fixed blade for utility or self-defence. Great ergonomics, size, materials and sheath - all for $100! Designed by the great Bob Terzuola no less... Bob T knew what the hell he was doing that's for sure.
It fits in my hand beautifully and its a great size for every day carry. You can get the new flat grind version if you want a utility knife or ask Jeff if you want the older style version with swedge, which I think is better for self-defence - they have both! They also have two sheath options - awesome!
I now have THREE of them, including the original one in ATS-34, that's how much I like this knife... simply great value for money!
