Spyderco’s Sage 5 Lightweight is a detour from their original Sage project in the best kind of way. Originally created as a platform to showcase unique locking mechanisms and their creators, the Sage series has helped to deliver incredible innovation into the mainstream.

In this spirit, the Sage 5 Lightweight maintains the Compression Lock™ mechanism highlighted in the original Sage 5, but pairs it with injection-molded, fiberglass-reinforced-nylon (FRN) handle scales to reduce its weight by 13 percent.

The handle’s Bi-Directional Texture™ pattern provides a secure grip. Nested, skeletonized stainless steel liners provide structural strength and a foundation for the knife’s lock mechanism.

For serious end users, the result is a lightweight, high-performance knife that offers an ultra-secure grip at a more affordable price than the original version of this design.

To ensure an ultra-smooth action, the Sage 5 Lightweight’s full-flat-ground CPM® S30V® stainless steel blade rides on a special low-friction bushing that allows for precise pivot tensioning. A reversible deep-pocket wire clip provides discreet, ambidextrous, tip-up carry, while keeping the knife readily accessible.

As is tradition with all of Spyderco’s Sage models, a portion of the sales of these knives will be donated to the National Alzheimer’s Association.
