“We want variety!” It’s an often heard sentiment from knife customers and is why Spyderco offers several bestsellers with different handle options. Knife nuts wanting the lightest-weight folders available, gravitate to FRN or fiberglass reinforced nylon handles. Ultra-light FRN is warp resistant, shuns chemicals, and isn’t affected by temperature extremes. Spyderco’s non-locking, one-hand open, clip carry folders are called SLIPITS.

Starting in 2004, Spyderco launched a folding knife model called the UK Penknife, targeted for carry in the United Kingdom where newly imposed legal restrictions forbade folding knives with locking blades.

As the SLIPIT concept gains momentum Spyderco keeps expanding the line with folders in varying sizes, steels and handles. Newly added are Lightweight SLIPITS. Lightweight UK Penknife blades are held open by a notched-joint at the knife’s pivot. When closing the blade, the notch produces resistance functionally similar to traditional slip-joint penknives. Heightening control and comfort, Spyderco designers added a deep finger choil positioning the index finger on the bottom of the blade directly under the thumb. This lets you choke up near the cutting edge with comfort and dexterity. A tension-wire clip carries the folder deeply in a pocket, tip-up and ambidextrously.

Excellent knife
I was moving to the UK and wanted a knife that was legal to carry, this knife would have cost me over twice as much if bought in the UK, I use the knife for the usual day to day things, cutting string, ribbons, opening packaging etc., knife is beautifully sharp, easy to use with one hand and sits in the pocket on the clip well.

Excellent knife!!
This latest iteration of Spyderco's UKPK Lighteweight is an excellent knife!! The FFG blade slices well, sharpens well and keeps its edge for a good time. The handle feels great in use. FRN is lighter than G10 but very strong and textured enough to give good traction. The backspring isn't as strong as the G10 models but still stronger than the first gen UKPK Lightweights (hollow ground blades). Great walk and talk (snap when opening/closing and at the half stop). Easy to open and close one handed and the finger choil works to keep the blade from closing on your fingers, eliminating the need for a lock for most applications. I prefer the drop point blade style to the classic leaf as it has a lower profile when closed. I have several iterations of the UKPK and think this one might be the best one. I just ordered a second the other day.

I love it !
The new improved blade spring is a good balance between ease of opening and safety. I am happy with this EDC, but the FRN handle wear my Jeans … The CTS-BD1 blade is OK. This knife satisfy the strict restrictions guidelines in some country frop Europa. I love it !
