Known for their intelligence, ingenuity, and agility, the Spider Monkey from Southern Grind, is a great reflection of its namesake. Brought to you by knife enthusiast, humanitarian, and Country music star, Zac Brown, the Spider Monkey is a blade that is not only tactical in design but also appealing for everyday carry purposes. Combined with the hand forged damascus steel of Chad Nichols, the Spider Monkey is not only formidable in its function and design, but also it's strength and beauty. Together, this makes a knife that would be just as impressive on a collectors shelf as it is in your back pocket.
Damascus steel was invented centuries ago, however, the original recipe of this metal as well as how it was created without the use of modern steel-making tools and forges has been lost to the ages. Today, however, we have the luxury of not only coming close to this patterned steel design, but surpassing it was superior alloys and manufacturing methods in how modern day damascus is forged. An exclusive to knifeart.com, the hand-forged Chad Nichols stainless ladder pattern damascus gives the Southern Grind Spider Monkey a unique look, as well as strength, corrosion resistance, durability, and the perfect sweet spot of hardness that allows steel to take an edge and hold it for a long time. The 3.2" blade is deployed via dual thumb studs and locked into place, giving it an overall length of 7.43". The blade is .13" thick and can be honed to a microscopic, razor-sharp edge.
The 4.2" textured black carbon fiber handle is 3D machined to give you comfort and an almost organic look. Phosphor bronze bushings allow for seamless and smooth deployment of the blade, while the shape of the handle and finger groove provides an excellent ergonomic feel in the hand. The textured handle gives a good grip in all kinds of cutting conditions, making it ideal for outdoor use, tactical application, work, hunting/fishing/ or even just a day on the boat. A tumbled satin titanium pocket clip is integrated into the handle for tip-up carry, as well as a lanyard hole on the handle for your favorite paracord lanyard.

Every Southern Grind knife comes with a paracord bracelet, a Southern Grind keychain, and a leather can-koozie proudly featuring the Southern Grind logo.
