Ukrainian-born Serge Panchenko has been making custom knives for only a few years, but in that time has gathered a following. His first collaboration with Spyderco, the Roc, combines a unique cleaver style blade with a gracefully curved handle featuring skeletonized full stainless steel liners and textured black G-10 scales. The VG-10 stainless steel blade is saber ground for strength and has a utilitarian bead-blasted finish. It is backed by a sturdy Walker LinerLock mechanism and an open-spine handle construction for light weight and ease of cleaning. A reversible deep-pocket wire clip accommodates tip-up, left/right carry and ensures that this unique tool is always at the ready.
