Spyderco – Pygmy Warrior

Designed by combat veteran and lifelong martial artist Bob Taylor, the Pygmy is machined from CTS BD1 stainless steel and features full-tang construction as well as non-reflective Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) coating. An interesting feature is that curve of the blade is computer optimized to match the natural arc of motion of the human arm and ensure maximum energy transfer during a thrust. The blade also incorporates sawteeth on the back of the blade.

The handle incorporates a “stackableā€ construction. It uses two outer scales and two spacers that allow you to custom tune the grip size to your hand. The sheath is BoltaronĀ® with a G-Clip attachment.

The Pygmy Warrior comes with a copy of the book “The Warrior Path.”

    Blade profile reminds me of the old Rekat Hobbit Warrior knife.

    Apparently th latest version of a design by Bob Taylor, and once associated with Micheal Echanis a long, long time ago. Sometime in the late 70’s-early 80’s there was a single photo in SOF magazine of Echanis with an early version of the knife. There have been a couple attempts at series production since, IIRK.

    Spyderco has done a few runs of the pygmy and continues production of the full size warrior. AFAIK their full size has been in production longer than any other versions, the AL Mar knife may be close.
    Not a true copy of the warrior, but very much in the spirit.
    Love the way the handle scales on the Pygmy can be changed for a closer-to-body carry.
    Might be the best inside the waistband carry fixed blade out there
