C163TIP: Spyderco Pingo Slip-It Titanium Handle (2.35 Inch Satin Elmax Blade)
A collaborative effort of Danish knifemakers Jens Anso and Jesper Voxnaes, the Pingo was specifically designed to conform to the knife laws of Denmark, which prohibit both lock-blade folding knives and all forms of one-hand-opening knives.
The heart of the Pingo is its distinctive sheepfoot blade, which is ground from Austrian Bohler-Uddeholm's Elmax steel. Elmax boasts high carbon and chromium contents and an extra-fine grain structure that provide extreme edge holding and corrosion resistance. The blade is designed to meet Danish legal length limits while still providing a very functional and versatile cutting tool. Its Trademark Round Hole clearly identifies it as a Spyderco knife and provides a handy purchase for two-handed opening, but the hole is purposely small to prevent one-handed blade-opening methods. Similarly, its stout notched-joint mechanism is powered by a strong spring that helps hold the blade securely in the open and closed positions, supporting its safe use as a cutting tool while precluding one-handed opening.
The Pingo features solid Titanium handles with a color anodized "wraparound" bug logo which really makes the knife pop! A reversible deep-pocket wire clip provides both left and right-side tip-up carry, keeping the knife accessible for immediate use while blending unobtrusively with virtually any color of clothing.
Although designed to meet the unique needs of the Danish knife community, the Pingo's versatile design and socially friendly demeanor make it a perfect choice for knife users everywhere. It not only transcends the limits of the traditional non-locking pocketknife, but also redefines Spyderco's own definition of a SLIPIT because of its purposeful two-hand-opening design. Plus it's only available in limited quantities as a Sprint Run.
