Spyderco DOG TAG GEN4
Custom knifemaker Serge Panchenko’s original Dog Tag Folder redefined the concept of the ultimate “carry anywhere” folding knife. Designed to replicate the look, size, and convenience of a military dog tag, its variations have earned a devoted following among knife fans and gear enthusiasts alike.
Spyderco’s latest expression of this unique theme is the Dog Tag Folder Gen4. Based on Panchenko’s fourth-generation design, this handy cutting tool features twin, matte-finished aluminum handle scales for a comfortable, secure grip and enhanced protection of the blade’s sharp edge. A purpose-designed non-locking folder, it features an integral spring bar and ball-bearing detent in the larger scale that help hold the blade in place in both the open and closed positions, but do not mechanically lock it. Unlike its chisel-ground predecessors, the blade of the Gen4 is double-beveled and saber-ground to provide a symmetrical edge angle that is more easily sharpened and allows greater control during use. Precision machined from American-made CTS® BD1 stainless steel, the compact sheepfoot blade proudly features Spyderco’s Trademark Round Hole™ for fingernail-free ease of opening.
Still one of the most novel and innovative everyday cutting tools available, the Dog Tag Folder Gen4 may be the ultimate constant cutting companion.
