The Southern Grind Spider Monkey drop point folding knife has a total size of 7.4" and weight of 3.2 oz. The Spider Monkey model represents a new level of design for this American-made brand.

The Spider Monkey drop point tumbled satin folder is 4.2" when closed and has a blade length of 3.2". The blade is made of stainless CPM S35VN steel which holds a razor sharp edge and is held in a textured black twill carbon fiber handle. The stonewashed finish allows the knife to be used and hides scratches and normal wear. The CPM steel is made using a particle metal alloy process and provides for even distribution of carbides and elements for increased edge retention and toughness.

The finish of the carbon fiber is matte and lightly blasted. The 'Monkey' titanium liners and spacer pins. Phosphor bronze bushings in the pivot for smooth opening and closing - while being a durable and wear resistant material. The shape of the handle is ergonomic and is 3d machined for a positive grip. The handle has a tumbled satin titanium pocket clip is mounted for blade tip up carry preventing accidental blade deployment along with a lanyard hole in the handle. The Southern Grind Spider Monkey is easy to open whether you are right or left handed with the dual thumb studs mounted on the blade spine. You can be confident in having a sure grip with the filed thumb rest on the liners and blade spine allowing you to complete the task at hand. The blade edge is razor sharp making for a precise instrument that it is finely ground on both sides.

Zac Brown of the Zac Brown Band created Southern Grind Knives to represent what he believes knives should be - rugged, dependable and highly functional. Southern grind knives are proud to be Made in the U.S.A. just like Zac Brown and his music. KnifeArt is proud to be an authorized dealer of southern grind knives.

4  decent but not fantastic, Southern Grind Spider Monkey - Drop Point Carbon Fiber
Posted By: - verified customer

Thumb stud hurts. The knife is not as smooth as I had seen in videos. Perhaps break in will fix that, but I have opened and closed it a LOT and it still feels the same as when I first got it. The s35vn is sharp and the main grinds look even. The carbon fiber is nice and textured for a good grip. Lock up was very early, but it has settled in a bit more, giving me confidence it will not close on me. There is still stick, which I prefer over lock rock, but it would be nice had they addressed this in some way. Blade centering is right down the middle. The pocket clip being so small made me think it would fall out, but it works as well as any other pocket clip I have used, Nice knife, just the opening is painful.

This is an awesome knife. Well constructed, it feels solid and stable in your hand, and inspires confidence when it snaps open and locks in. The blade is super sharp S35VN. The carbon fiber scales provide for a secure, bombproof feel when it is in your hand. An excellent purchase process from KnifeArt.com. Will definitely shop here again for my next knife purchase.

My OCD tendancies tried hard to find flaws with close and considerable examination, but failed miserably. Rock solid lock up, good blade centering, razor sharp, smooth as silk action, and excellently finished knife.
The titanium liners are thick, and lock bar blade tang interface is wide with a lot of surface area in clean straight engagement, but with perfectly early lock up. Lock doesn't stick, and feels as solid as a frame lock.
The carbon fiber has a matte finish with good non-slippery grip texture, and the 3D milling feels fantastic in hand. It's not crazy grippy, but I never felt like I would drop it accidentally while alternating between different grips in use.
Beautiful stonewash over the perfectly ground blade. I can't say enough about this knife. It exceeded expectations, in every way.
I love the pocket clip, and while it does not contact the handle at the bend, I believe this is intentional as the retention in pocket is strong, and would be excessive if it was hard against the handle. The gap is just enough to allow it to go onto the pocket material and hold, but not difficult or pant shredding. This knife is NOT going to slip out of pocket.
Blade and handle length are almost exactly like ZT 0450, but fills the hand better than that and the Small Sebenza. Don't get me wrong. I still love and carry both of those knives, but this one is definitely a great addition.
Perfect balance and ergos for my medium sized hands.
Very strong and confidence inspiring liner lock, while maintaining liner-lock simplicity in disengagement.
In my humble opinion, it compares to knives that cost twice as much in regards to materials, fit, finish, and design.
You can tell the makers of this superb knife are passionate about their work with incredible attention to detail.
For what it's worth, subjectively, I'd say it's one of the best additions to my collection in years.
I could go on about the thumb stud, high flat grind, jimping, ricasso, plunge grind, edge length, bevel, grind angles, etc... But this has already gotten too long. You'll just have to get one in hand for yourself...
