MONCh Gear Box Product Review
Now THIS is a knife! The Spyderco RESPECT offers a formidable Sal Glesser design that takes inspiration from the classic American Bowie Knife, outfitted with a substantial 7.6mm (0.30in) thick CPM154 stainless steel blade (202mm/7.94in) that has exceptional edge geometry and a full-flat grind.
An expertly contoured handle (G-10) shape ensures control and leverage with a finger choil and double-guard for classic Bowie tactics. The long, straight, double-beveled swedge on the back of the blade is unsharpened, but ensures an exceptionally acute point.
To complement its traditional styling, the Respect is furnished with a high-quality, handcrafted leather sheath with both a conventional belt loop and a brass stud. The stud not only secures the end of the sheath’s leather retaining strap to keep the knife in place, but also prevents the sheath from slipping down when it is worn using classic inside-the-waistband carry. At 334mm (13.15in) the RESPECT weighs 318g (11.2oz) and by looks alone demands respect!
