The Spyderco Matriarch was inspired by a request from our South African distributor for smaller and more economical version of the Civilian as a personal-protection tool for women. That concept ultimately evolved into the Matriarch 2, which integrates the Civilian’s aggressive blade shape and Reverse “S” edge profile with the lightweight handle construction of the popular Endura 4. Its SpyderEdge VG-10 stainless steel blade offers extreme cutting performance while its sturdy back lock mechanism, four-position clip, and Trademark Round Hole ensure fully ambidextrous carry.
An Emerson Opener is an integral hook on the back of the blade that snags the corner of your 8.55in pocket as the knife is drawn, automatically opening the blade as the knife clears the pocket. The invention of custom knifemaker Ernest Emerson, it is a natural complement to the Matriarch 2 and ensures quick, positive deployment of its Reverse “S” blade.
