This limited-edition Sprint Run™ version of the Shabaria proudly resurrects one of our rarest and most exotic designs. Originally released in 1999, the Spyderco Shabaria was designed by the late Israeli knife designer, jeweler, and gunsmith Eduard Bradichansky. It was based on the traditional ethnic knife of the Bedouins, a predominantly desert-dwelling Arab group that, until recent times, lived as nomads. Also known as the Shibriya and believed to have originated in the Jordan Valley around 300 CE, it had a distinctively curved blade and hourglass-shaped handle and served as both a weapon and a symbol of social status within the Bedouin culture.
Produced in limited quantities, this version of the Shabaria faithfully maintains all the remarkable qualities of Bradichansky’s original design, while expressing them in a unique, one-of-a-kind format. Its sinuous blade is saber-ground from VG-10 stainless steel and features a Trademark Round Hole for easy one-handed opening. The blade is supported by a sturdy LinerLock mechanism housed within the knife's distinctive hourglass-shaped handle, which features textured gray G-10 scales and a classic three-screw pocket clip configured for right-side, tip-down carry.
