The Strider Knives SNG Tiger Stripe blade is a high-end American-made folding knife with super-solid construction and unique details that make it a satisfying tool to own. California-based Strider Knives bases many of its offerings on military designs and, in fact, has produced several knives for exclusive military use.
The spear point blade is constructed of stainless CPM-S30V steel with a subtle, non-reflective tiger stripe finish. This finish is something of a signature for Strider, though not all their blades feature it; it's created by coating with a black oxide finish and sandblasting part of that off. The S30V steel paired with a flat grind makes the 3.5-inch blade hold an edge well and sharpen easily.
The Strider SNG Black with Tiger Stripe Blade model incorporates this rugged, "ready for anything" usability factor with a great look. The SNG's frame is made of titanium for durability. An oversized pivot adds to the blade's toughness.
Handling is where the SNG really shines. Dual stainless thumb studs and an oval thumb hole opener let right or left handed users open with ease. On the clip side, the slightly contoured handle is the titanium integral frame lock that's heat flamed -- another trademark feature -- and the other side is partly textured black G-10 for a superior grip. Thumb ramp notching along the top of the knife, where the blade and frame meet, give you even better grip while you use the knife. Jimping along the spine and at the base of the handle increase your traction for tactical use.
The tip-up pocket clip is the same heat flamed titanium as the back of the handle and is removable if you wish. There's also a lanyard hole. When open, the knife measures 8.25 inches and the whole thing weighs a reasonable 4.6 ounces.
