The UK pen knife is designed to meet the U.K.s restriction on locking knives. It features a 2.94 in. CTS BD1 steel, leaf shaped, plain blade with a 4.06 in. black, glass reinforced co-polyamide handle that includes a pocket clip an has an overall length of 6.94 in.
Spyderco developed the UK Penknife after the United Kingdom prohibited the carry of knives with locking blades. We began refining the classic slip-joint pocket mechanism with a notched joint and added two Spyderco features that define the modern folding knife: a pocket clip for convenient carry and our Trademark Round Hole for easy, ambidextrous one-hand opening. The UK Penknife is 100% made in the USA and is available with either a leaf-shaped or drop-point blade design. Both are flat ground from CTS BD1N stainless steel and feature opposing jimping on the thumb ramp and index-finger choil for positive control.
