A handy knife in the vertical world.
Petzl designed the Spatha Knife to specifically address a climber's needs. This combo blade easily cuts through ropes and cordellette when you need to make an emergency anchor, and it slices through meats and cheeses if you're camping by the crag. A CariTool carabiner attachment lets you clip this knife to harnesses, backpacks, and placements in case your second needs it. A notch in the blade with a textured wheel provides a one-handed opening if your other hand is busy keeping you on the wall, and a locking mechanism helps you not cut your fingers off.

Solid Backpacking Knife
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I needed a really light knife to save weight while backpacking, so I didn't need anything fancy. Just wanted lightweight, good build quality, and good price. I've only used this knife a few times, but so far it seems really solid for how lightweight it is, and it should serve me well for backpacking trips to come!
- Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
Bought this for my husband because I secretly wanted to play with/steal this! Its SUPER light weight I was really surprised. It's really sharp although I haven't tested cutting through any rope yet. I didn't find it difficult to open at all. If anything it was a little difficult to close. It would be nice it there was somewhere on the side to grip to give you a little leverage when you're trying to shut the blade. Over all pretty happy with this!
The blade is awesome, I love the carabiner attachment, it's really light, the only thing is that it's hard to pull the blade out with none hand, I wish it would slide out easier. Other than that, I like it, I trust.this knife, and it's also easy to sharpen if needed.
nice attachment, hard to open
easy to attach to a belt, but hard to open w one hand. i might try oiling it but with the number of ez open blades out there.. i might consider a different knife and just use the lanyard ring to attach it. nice blade at least.
