The ARK - or "Always Ready Knife"™ - is a purpose-designed personal-defense knife. Originally designed by US Army combat troops for defense against sexual assaults, the ARK is extremely lightweight and can be carried anywhere - even in the shower - for personal protection.

The heart of the ARK is its deeply curved clip-point blade ground from state-of-the-art H-1® steel - a precipitation-hardened steel alloy with added nitrogen for markedly increased corrosion resistance.
The H-1 alloy blade does something no other blade steel can, it remains 100% rust free and actually holds a sharp cutting edge.
The curved edge packs impressive cutting power into the compact blade and the clip-point profile ensures a strong, extremely sharp point.

The ARK blade has a serrated SpyderEdge edge grind - which is Spyderco’s two-step serration pattern of alternating large serrations and double small serrations - easily seen in the photo.
Serrated blades hold their sharpness incredibly well because the actual cutting edge is hidden inside each mini-arch, protected by the pointy outer edge of the blade.
The pattern increases the cutting edge’s surface area by up to 24%, and is especially useful on materials that are tough to cut with a plain edge - like ropes.

The ARK’s fiberglass-reinforced-nylon handle is molded directly onto the tang and features Spyderco’s proven Bi-Directional Texturing™ pattern and an index-finger groove to guarantee a secure grip - even with wet hands.

To ensure universal carry, the ARK includes an injection-molded polymer neck sheath with a breakaway ball chain.
Best of all, the ARK and its sheath, together, weigh only 2.0 ounces (57 grams), so you’ll hardly know it’s there - until you need it.

• A huge advantage — can be put away wet without rusting!
• One of the highest quality blade steels available, the H-1 alloy in this blade holds an exceptional edge, and is 100% rust-proof
