Spyderco Kiwi 3 Slip Joint

Kiwis combine everything great about traditional old-world non-locking penknives with techno twenty-first century performance blade-steel and ergonomics. 

Its affable two-inch long 8Cr13Mov blade (hollow ground) is a classically-shaped Wharncliffe with a Spyderco Round Hole giving an animalistic appearance.  Above the hole sits a spine cusp, making a slip-resistant site for thumb or index finger placement adding precision and control while cutting.  Classified as a non-locking folder, the Kiwi has a slip-joint pivot that generates resistance to closing, keeping the blade safely open when used.  Bitten out of the handle's underbelly are two deep-cut finger-indentations.   The first positions the index finger in line behind the cutting edge and doubles as a stop, keeping the blade from inadvertently closing.  The second indent (cut just behind the first) accommodates the middle finger.  Both indents jog the fingers to a position on the handle offering control, dexterity and conveying the impression of gripping a larger knife. 

Kiwi's stainless handle is contoured and chamfered for pinch-free cutting.  Handle is clipless with a lanyard for lacing a thong or leather strap.
