Marine and an avid outdoorsman Jonathan McNees has a lifetime of experience
using knives in the field. When he combined that hard-won insight with his
skills as a custom knifemaker, one of the results was his “Killer B” folding
knife—an amazingly compact everyday-carry cutting tool and the inspiration for
the Spyderco McBee.
positive that function is a matter of design, not size, the McBee features a
saber-ground Wharncliffe blade crafted from CTS® XHP stainless steel. Its
uniquely scalloped spine creates a profile that offers both scalpel-like precision
and impressive cutting power. Despite its diminutive size, it is also capable
of true one-hand-opening capability via its Trademark Round Hole™.
stonewash-finished blade is paired with a handle featuring precision machined
solid titanium scales. The obverse (near-side) scale has a series of
skeletonizing holes, while the reverse-side scale forms the foundation of the
knife’s sturdy Reeve Integral Lock (R.I.L.) mechanism. Both scales have a
handsome matte finish and are accented by McNees’ signature stippling on the
lock recess and the pivot pin screw heads. A polished stainless steel hourglass
clip provides right-side, tip-up carry and is backed by a lined lanyard hole
for the easy attachment of lanyards and fobs.
