MATRIARCH2 EMERSON OPENER – The Matriarch2 combines the unusual cutting power of our Reverse “S” blade profile and SpyderEdge serrations with the blindingly fast deployment speed of the patented Emerson Opening feature. The result is an amazingly swift and potent cutting tool that may be in a position for anything. The original Matriarch used to be inspired by a request from Spyderco’s South African distributor for a more cost effective version of our iconic Civilian. The usual Matriarch2 is an evolution of that concept, combining the Civilian’s aggressive blade shape and Reverse “S” edge profile with the lightweight care for construction of the most productive-selling Endura4 to provide extreme cutting performance in a convenient, lightweight package. By adding an Emerson Opener—a small integral hook on the spine of the blade—the contemporary version of the Matriarch2 raises the bar even further by offering the ultimate in high-speed deployment. As the knife is drawn from tip-up carry, the Emerson Opener snags on the mouth of the pocket and automatically opens the blade as it clears the pocket. At the beginning developed by renowned knife maker Ernest Emerson, Spiders is licensed to incorporate this remarkable feature into selected Spiders designs. Offering completely ambidextrous operation, the Matriarch2 features a four-position clip, a sturdy back lock mechanism, skeletonized stainless steel liners and a Bi-Directional-Textured fiberglass-reinforced-nylon care for.
