In the 1990s Spyderco was approached by a specialized branch of U.S. law enforcement about making a knife for their undercover agents. These plain-clothes LEOs found themselves in situations where they often could not carry a firearm but carrying a knife was not a problem. Most had no formal training in self-defense tactics or MBC but as a last resort could use a blade to protect or extricate themselves from a life-threatening situation. This was how the Civilian model came to be.

The Civilian has a patented reverse "S" blade that's intended to be used like an oversized claw. The tip is ground to an ultra-thin profile. Deeply curved and full at the belly, the VG-10 hollow-ground blade excels in slicing and is available fully SpyderEdged. Because of its distinctly specialized features it is not intended or designed for general utility or everyday use. Curved in all the right places for ergonomic use and retention of the knife, the handle is black G-10. Mounted for tip-down carry with a custom curved black clip, the knife rides deeply and unobtrusively in a pocket. One of the most specialized CLIPITS in the Spyderco line-up, the Civilian is available in limited quantities.

Personal Defense at it's best! February 4, 2010
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from LOS ANGELES, CA United States  
Excellent fit and finish.  If you attach a zip tie (cut of the excess) to the thumbhole, it will act as an Emerson opener creating wicked fast deployment for this wicked sharp blade!  The clip is reversable, but only on one side, favoring right handers.  In a life or death situation, I would feel totally secure with this bad boy, not to mention that it's intimidating as hell!  For me, that's half the equation of a defense knife.  If you're questioning the price, don't.  It's worth every penny.

Wicked Blade November 4, 2009
Reviewer: Bruce from Patchogue, NY United States  
I just have to say that I would not like to be on the receiving end of this blade. Scary Sharp. This knife is just made for one thing cutting flesh. If I had to pick for a backup blade this would be my first choice. Great job.

Reviewer: Gavin from Shawano, WI United States  
The most impressive and intimidating knife I have ever owned, seen, or even imagined. Slicing ability second to none. Flawless blade. You gotta love that japanese steel.
