Spyderco specifically designed the UK Penknife (UKPK) to deliver cutting utility within the strict knife carry laws of the United Kingdom. This refined slip joint folding knife features premium details including reliable CTS BD1 carpenters steel.
The just under 3” leaf-shaped blade is precision ground from BD1 stainless steel produced by Carpenter Steel. It provides impressive edge retention, corrosion resistance, and cutting performance. It wears a full flat grind with versatile plain edge ready for daily tasks.
Textured black FRN (fiberglass reinforced nylon) handle scales offer a lightweight yet secure grip. Skeletonized stainless steel liners provide rigid strength without excess weight. Fits ergonomically in hand and pocket thanks to the slim profile and just 4.13” closed length.
Made for legal carry in the UK and Europe, the UKPK lacks a locking blade. Instead the slip joint mechanism holds the blade securely open while in use. Further enhancing safety is the backspring and choil preventing accidental closure.
