Brand new in the box, factory first Dog Tag (collaboration w/ Serge Panchenko) folding knife by Spyderco. Chisel ground S30V black blade and black titanium handle. Limited production and long since sold out. Never sharpened, never carried. Opened only for photos. Includes box and everything it came with. Model #C188ALTIBBKP. Thinning private collection. Not desperate so low ball offers will be ignored. The current value is already higher than my asking price and will only go up.

From Spyderco:
Serge Panchenko was born in the 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 hand-crafted, 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. One of his most popular mid-tech designs is the Dog Tag folder—a small but amazingly capable folding knife that is the shape of a military dog tag when closed. Since Spyderco specializes in uniquely functional compact cutting tools, the Dog Tag Folder was a natural choice for a collaborative effort with Panchenko.

The Dog Tag Folder is a unique departure from Spyderco's typical folding knife construction methods. Its single-sided handle is fabricated from solid titanium and accurately replicates the size and shape of a military dog tag. The center of the handle scale is machined to create an integral spring bar that houses a steel ball bearing for the blade's detent mechanism. At the top of the handle is a titanium back strap that defines the blade's limits of travel in both the open and closed positions and provides protection from the edge when the knife is closed.

The "business end" of the Dog Tag is a sheepfoot-style blade made from premium CPM® S30V® particle metallurgy stainless steel. To protect the edge when closed, the blade is chisel ground with a single flat bevel on the front side—an unusual feature for a Spyderco knife. Our Trademark Round Hole™ in the blade allows easy opening, and a subtle swedge (unsharpened bevel) and a decorative fuller (groove) near the spine add a touch of style. The blade's pivot is also accentuated by a round titanium disk that provides stability and structural strength as well as an aesthetic touch.

A non-locking folder, the Dog Tag's blade is held in place in the open position by a detent mechanism. A ball bearing in the handle scale's integral spring arm indexes holes in the tang of the blade to hold it both closed and open. Since the blade does not lock, care should be taken during use to apply cutting pressure only in a direction that maintains the knife's open position.

The Spyderco Dog Tag Folder is an extremely novel yet capable cutting tool that redefines the concept of the everyday carry knife. We are confident that it will serve you well.
