    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. 

    • Smooth, straight combo blade
    • CariTool carabiner attachment
    • One-handed opening
    • Locking mechanism

    Rookie needed knife

      Was heading up on my first alpine trip and was going over the essentials I didn't have. Based on researching having a rope knife was near the top. I bought this guy because it's from a brand I trust, was a good lightweight product, and had excellent reviews. First trip and I needed it because we got off route on the descent and got cliffed-out with the sun setting. Felt like an idiot but glad I had a rope knife and some quick links.

      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!

      Sweet knife

      • 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!

      Great knife!

        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.
