Spyderco Junior by DiAlex
UNIQUE COMFORTABLE DESIGN
Spyderco Junior (DiAlex Design)
The concept of the Junior folder comes from Romanian Technical Manager Alexandru Diaconescu. His young son was entering the curious-boy-years, ready and asking for his first pocketknife. The request brought-up normal parental questions and concerns regarding knife safety and usability motivating Dionescu to create a folder with a prominent guard (choil) behind the blade's sharpened edge.
The guard maintains the hand in firm control over the blade while creating a block, effectively stopping fingers from sliding forward and connecting with the sharp edge. And it's surprisingly comfortable in any sized hand- adult man, woman or juvenile. Position of the guard in the G-10 handle leaves little room for a locking mechanism and a Spyderco Compression Lock is added for its compact components and impressive strength.
Screw-together construction, an oversized lanyard hole and a deep pocket left- or right-handed tip-up wire clip further complement the handle. The VG-10 blade is ground full-flat and offered PlainEdged for the best available cutting performance with non-skid jimping located on top of the spine behind the Spyderco Round Hole.
