Designed by the first-ever Spyderco collaborator and legendary knifemaker, Bob Terzuola, the Starmate is an all-purpose EDC folder with a nearly 4-inch blade and skeletonized liner. It features a sabre-ground blade designed to hold an edge for heavy-duty tasks. The satin-finished blade is attached to a long, narrow handle for more control and maneuverability.
Note: Due to the sensitive nature of shipping knives internationally, we are able to ship only some of the knives on Massdrop to select countries. It is the responsibility of the buyer to know and comply with all importation regulations and local laws. Click here for additional information.
The Starmate’s blade is made from VG-10 stainless steel—a high-carbon-content steel manufactured in Japan. The blade locks into place with Terzuola’s improved Walker linerlock that features a concave ramp on the blade’s lock face to ensure a strong hold after deployment. Its skeletonized handle is comprised of two G-10 scales that provide a solid grip and slim profile. With a four-position pocket clip, the Starmate is made to accommodate both right- and left-handed users for tip-up or tip-down carry.
Bob Terzuola is one of the knife community’s most revered and influential designers. After beginning his career as a jade carver and gemologist in Guatemala, Terzuola relocated to the US where he began making custom cutlery and learning the art of folding knives. Originally designing knives for soldiers in Guatemala, Terzuola was intrigued by the idea of making a discreet folding knife for deep carry—thus the very first “tactical” knife was born. Terzuola is known for his trademark design and high-quality workmanship.
