Spyderco Moran FRN/Kraton Upswept Fixed Blade Knife

The Spyderco Moran FRN/Kraton Upswept is a fixed blade knife was designed by Bill Moran, who is recognized as the grandfather of American custom knifemaking and the founding father of the American Bladesmith Society. He started pounding steel, making knives more than fifty years ago. If you’re lucky enough to find a custom made Moran to buy, expect to shell out five figures, minimum. His work and designs are that revered.

Spyderco is privileged to offer a production fixed blade collaboration patterned in Bill Moran’s ageless tradition. Spyderco has made it available in two distinct blade shapes. The FB01 has an upswept Bowie-style blade and FB02 features a Drop Point style blade. Both blades are flat ground VG-10 and carry Bill’s signature. They are tapered, starting thick where the blade joins the handle, thinning down the spine to a fine, uniformly ground tip.

In the hand the knife conveys a unique feeling of balance, called by some a sweet spot. The sweet spot is due to the blade and handle being comparable in weight. This balance transfers into a feeling of steady control over the cutting edge. The FRN handle three dimensionally fills out the palm and is inlayed with a panel of non-sliding Kraton. Highly recommend for hunting and camping both models come in a molded Boltaron sheath with multi position G-Clip fastening system.
