The Spyderco UK Penknife is a classic folding knife developed by Spyderco to be legal to use in the UK.

  Service was excellent, delivered quickly, Knife is excellent, razor sharp and very slim but well made, only observation is that model shown on website is drop point blade, whilst model actually received is the leaf shaped blade. not important to me but may be to some. Would fully recommend

Dear Broholmer. Thank you for your very kind review. We apologise you received the leaf model, after checking it has been confirmed we do have the drop point version. Should you wish to discuss this, please reach out to us.

  Great little knife. Lightweight & good grip especially with finger the recess at the base of the blade. Less likely to close on your fingers. Arrived promptly.

  Really good quality at the price, well made, easy to open, good clip to position the knife for opening on withdrawal from your pocket. Brilliant bit of kit

  Received this Spyderco from Ray Mears promptly and without any issues I could not be more pleased with the knife or the service. Excellent on all fronts.

  It's a great knife and its relaxing to know that its UK legal. I prefer to take the clip off this is relatively easy to do with a pair of pliers which makes the knife very slim and light in a pocket.

  This knife is extremely sharp and seems to hold the edge. It does not lock as such, but has a two step closing mechanism which keeps the blade in place when being used. Nice and light, so it goes unnoticed into the rucksack. A delight.

  I think this blade has the easiest, smoothest single hand opening and closing of any knife I have used. The blade geometry is perfect so the blade is legal in Britain. So why only four stars? The blade is quite thin compared to others and I don't know how easy it will be to sharpen. But thats not even fair because its wonderfully light knife as a result. I took the clip off as I felt it unbalanced the feel of the knife. As a result the knife is so thin you really don't notice it in a pocket. All in all its great. I'll stick with 4 stars as its quite expensive for such a light a knife.
