Spyderco ClipiTool Folding Knife with Plain and Serrated Blades - C176P&S
ClipiTool™ knives represent an exciting breed of Spyderco cutting tools that redefine the concept of the multi-function pocketknife. As we all know, pocketknives that combine the cutting performance of a primary blade with one or more other tools are nothing new. Therein lies the problem.
Even though most of today's multi-function knives are rendered with modern, high-performance materials, their designs have not evolved significantly since they were first invented centuries ago. In particular, their use of traditional nail nicks as a purchase to open the different tools is inconvenient, slow, and more often than not results in chipped fingernails and frustration. Traditional pocketknives also ride in the bottom of the pocket where they can be difficult to access, get lost among other items, and are vulnerable to lint and pocket trash.
ClipiTool knives change all that by integrating many of the features that define Spyderco's revolutionary one-hand-opening folding knives with the concept of the classic multi-blade slipjoint pocketknife. The heart of every ClipiTool is its primary blade, which features a broad profile and a full-flat grind for reliable cutting performance far beyond its size. It also features Spyderco's distinctive Trademark Round Hole™ and a forefinger choil (groove). Although not intended for one-handed operation, the round hole makes two-handed opening of the non-locking, slipjoint blade much easier. The forefinger choil allows a secure grip that puts your hand close to the cutting action and enables the index finger to act as a natural stop to prevent accidental closure of the blade.
The ClipiTool knife's primary cutting blade is accompanied by a secondary tool that also folds conveniently into the handle via a non-locking slipjoint mechanism. Currently these tools include a choice of scissors, a serrated blade, or a combination bottle opener/flat-bladed screwdriver. Like the main blade, these tools all include Trademark Round Holes that support an easy pinch grip of the thumb and index finger for quick, positive two-handed opening.
ClipiTool knives are constructed entirely of corrosion-resistant stainless steel and feature superior fit, finish, and attention to detail. They also include a handy clip allowing them to be clipped to the top of a pocket or similar location to keep them instantly accessible and free from pocket lint and other debris. This clip also enables ClipiTools to function as money clips if carried inside the pocket.
Compact, convenient, and extremely versatile, ClipiTool knives are also very affordable and future models are already in the works.
