Laws and guidelines for carrying pocketknives are changing in
countries all over our world. Several countries have enacted restrictions and
parameters on folding knives, specifically on blades that lock open. Spyderco
addressed this by developing a series of non-locking folders we call Slipits.
Slipits are traditional Spyderco folding and clip knives (we’ve always called
them CLIPITS) but have non-locking blades. Slipit blades are safely held open by
a notched or slip-joint located at the knife’s pivot. Closing the blade, the
notch produces resistance functionally similar to traditional slip-joint
penknives. Heightening control and safety, a deep finger choil positions the
index finger behind the blade directly under the thumb. This allows choking up
nearer the cutting edge with comfort and dexterity. Positioning the index finger
in the choil additionally keeps the blade from closing while cutting.
The Urban Slipits feature G-10 handles: C127OR Urban Wharncliffe Blade with
safety orange G-10 handle and C127FG Urban Leaf-shaped Blade with Foliage Green
G-10 handle. Both have screw together handle construction for adjusting and
cleaning and feature a left/right-hand tip up silhouette wire pocket clip. Their
blades are flat-ground VG-10 available Plain Edged with slip-resistant jimping
at the blade spine and along the finger-choil.
