A skeletonized neck knife with tons of grip, the BlackFox Spike is lightweight and concealable. The 1.75" Wharncliffe blade features 440C stainless steel with a titanium coating and an acute point.
Designed by Serge Panchenko, large thumb jimping and black G10 scales provide excellent retention in the hand. Multiple cutouts reduce weight and the included Kydex sheath is equipped with a lanyard, making it easy to carry.
440C Stainless Steel
While it was still a high-end steel several decades ago, 440 is a very decent middle-grade steel today. Many users still see it as the perfect "magical trifecta" of edge retention, corrosion resistance, and easy sharpening.
Serge Panchenko was born in Ukraine and immigrated to the United States with his family when he was eight years old. A natural tinkerer with a passion for working with his hands, he began making knives in 2007 shortly after attending his first knife show.
Panchenko makes all types and styles of custom knives and strives to make each one a perfect balance of artistic expression and practical function. In addition to handcrafted, one-at-a-time custom knives, he also makes handmade lanterns, beads, and other items, as well as "mid-tech" knife designs that combine partially finished, custom-machined parts with his hand-finished attention to detail.
