Spyderco's Advocate is a production version of custom knifemaker Gayle Bradleys first flipper-style folder design. Its blade is precision machined from CPM-M4 a high-performance tool steel renowned for its extreme edge-holding ability. The full-flat-ground, PlainEdged blade includes both a prominent index-finger flipper and a fully functional Trademark Round Hole which allows a full spectrum of one-handed opening methods. To ensure a high-speed, low-drag action, the blade also pivots between special friction-reducing ball-bearing washers. The handle consists of two 3-D-machined solid titanium scales that are radiused across their width and feature a unique "orange peel" finish that is both visually striking and provides an enhanced grip texture. The reverse-side handle scale forms the foundation of a high-strength Reeve Integral Lock (R.I.L.) mechanism with a stainless steel interface. This interface ensures a secure lock-up, a long service life, and serves double duty as an overtravel stop to maintain proper spring tension of the lock bar. The handle also boasts an open-backed construction style to minimize weight and simplify cleaning and a reversible hourglass clip that provides convenient left or right-side tip-up carry.
