Founded in 1976, Spyderco knives combine quality with affordability. Selling their first folding knife in 1981, the company continues to offer a wide selection of both folding and fixed blade knives that are perfect for everyday carry. Here at Knifehub, we make it our business to stock a Spyderco for every budget and purpose. Today, we will take a look at a variety of affordable Spydercos coming in under $100.
With an overall length of just under six inches, the Ambitious is both lightweight and compact. They say the best things come in small packages, and that is true when it comes to the Ambitious. Featuring a blade made of Crucible CPM S35VN steel, this knife retains an edge and is highly resistant to corrosion. Both of these characteristics combine to make this steel among the higher-quality American steels. The handle on the Ambitious is made of either G-10 or FRN (fiberglass-reinforced nylon), and comes in black or blue. Once engaged, the blade is held in place by a tough liner lock. Last but certainly not least, the pocket clip on the Ambitious can be positioned four different ways. Everything combined, this knife makes a great EDC option.
Yet another affordable, dependable offering from Spyderco. The Delica 4 is the perfect size for an EDC knife while being tough. The lightweight handle is made from FRN (fiberglass reinforced nylon), and is available in a wide range of colors with blue being my personal favorite. Made with VG-10 steel, the blade is exceptionally hard and retains its edge very well. With a closed length of 4.25”, the Delica 4 fits easily into your pocket for everyday carry.

Designed by Dutch marketing specialist, Sjoerd Stok, the Stok Bowie represents a part of Spyderco’s fixed blade offering. Measuring 6.45” in length, this knife is compact and easy to carry. It comes with a sheath made of Boltaron that is small and light weight. The blade is made of 8Cr13MoV steel, which users say is easy to sharpen and holds its edge extremely well. The Stok Bowie is an all-around high performing knife at an affordable cost.
