Spyderco UK Penknife Drop Point

Spyderco UK Penknife Drop Point



This is Spyderco's famous UK Penknife (UKPK) with FRN handles and a drop point balde with a flat grind.

We want variety!" It's an often heard sentiment from knife customers and is why Spyderco offers several bestsellers with different handle options. Knife nuts wanting the lightest- weight folders available, gravitate to FRN or fiberglass reinforced nylon handles. Ultra- light FRN is warp resistant, shuns chemicals, and isn't affected by temperature extremes.

Spyderco's non-locking, one-hand open, clip carry folders are called SLIPITS. Starting in 2004, Spyderco launched a folding knife model called the UK Penknife, targeted for carry in the United Kingdom. As the SLIPIT concept gains momentum Spyderco keeps expanding the line with folders in varying sizes, steels and handles. Newly added are Lightweight SLIPITS.

Lightweight UK Penknife blades are held open by a notched-joint at the knife's pivot. When closing the blade the notch produces resistance functionally similar to traditional slip-joint penknives. Heightening control and comfort, Spyderco designers added a deep finger choil positioning the index finger on the bottom of the blade directly under the thumb. This lets you choke up near the cutting edge with comfort and dexterity. A tension-wire clip carries the folder deeply in a pocket, tip-up and ambidextrously.

This version has a CTS BD1N blade steel and black FRN handle.

  1. Nice pocket light weightReview by
    Just got mine, its thin , light , and sharp! looks handsomely odd and handles sweetly, it fits the hand well for such a small knife, the blade is nicely ground and has a firm lock up and notable half stop, seems delicate but when you put it to task you can sense in truth its tough! now if they would just put it out in more colours...... like a red and orange or aqua blue!

  2. Simply delightfulReview by
    I adore this knife. I'm looking for the perfect UK legal friendly enough looking and usefully sized kniife for this country. This is close to perfect.

    I went for drop point to look less menacing or "st**by" but wish they still did different handle scale colours to help with softening the image of this knife in the eyes of the public. A black handle always looks a bit too stealthy.

    The blade is lovely and thin, excellent for slicing. Great for veg prep, or cardboard destruction!

    So so light to hold, and is so compact when closed due to drop point blade profile being so narrow.

    A modern gents classic that's borderline perfect. When I one hand opened it for the first time, and felt the well engineered snick as I did it, I had a moment of joy for sure!

  3. Hard to faultReview by
    I've owned one of these for several years now and almost always have it on me. It's put up with so much and never let me down. The CTS-BD1 blade holds an edge well enough, just a step behind VG-10, but far, far easier to sharpen and I don't think this blade even knows what the word 'rust' means. Absolutely nothing to complain about. Newer models may come with a CTS-BD1N blade, which apparently holds an edge better, I can't speak to that but the model I have was already great enough. I often get called on to help with office IT, stripping wires and cutting plastic zipties as well as opening boxes, but use the same knife in my garden here and there, as well as in the kitchen (after cleaning, duh), it's just handy for almost anything. The CTS-BD1 steel means even cutting fruit and veg won't affect the blade, no patina. A "better" steel like VG-10 needs more care, making it less handy for an EDC as you have to watch what you use it for. I'll happily throw my Spyderco at almost any situation.

    The handle is where some people will fall out of love with it, not me but it's worth mentioning. Very lightweight FRN, feels like plastic but still has barely a scuff on it. Some people think they prefer G10 but trust me, this thing has fantastic grip, try one out and you won't be disappointed. It's lightweight. Incredibly, incredibly lightweight. So much so that it feels flimsy at first. Years on I know it's not as it's still close to pristine, but if you want to feel like you're holding a sturdy, heavy piece of hardware, you won't get that here. It's almost skeletal. A friend of mine looking to pick up a new knife actually fell in love with my £7 Schrade over the Spyderco just because it was more satisfying to hold. I happily gave him the damn thing. Initial impressions are so deceptive though, the Spyderco has hung in there through being dropped and thrown and used countless times.

    Ergonomics-wise the choil on this is perfect. If you're not a knife person, it means once the blade is open, there's an indent where the blade and handle meet where your forefinger can sit, making it impossible to start closing the blade. The blade also soft-locks when closed 90 degrees just to make it safer for you, you'd have to work hard to close this on your own fingers. The spideyhole used to open it is, as always, a godsend. I tend to grow my nails long and opening some of my knives becomes a nightmare. With this, and indeed most Spyderco knives, there's a large hole at the top of the blade you can hook with your thumbpad and open the blade safely and easily one-handed. It's light, safe, and easy to use.

    One important factor for a knife designed for UK EDC is that it looks very non-threatening. Its lightweight frame helps that, and a straightforward, smooth blade reminiscent of kitchen hardware, plus a handle that's functional without aggressive tactical shaping. Nothing about this says "wea**n." People constantly ask to borrow it from me in the office (even the IT guy who keeps saying he needs to buy his own), and never once has anyone given the impression that they were scared by its appearance. I can't imagine your average police officer would care so long as you're not trying to get it into a nightclub with it. Compare to something like the Lansky World Legal which looks lethal, or many Boker or Byrd blades intended as EDC which still have the look of a wea**n more than a tool. The Spyderco UKPK looks about as friendly as a knife can be without being a novelty.

    Bottom line? You can get better work knives (VG-10 or above blade, heavier handle if you need it, etc) if you want to go deep into triple figures for minimal gains, or pick up a swiss army knife or small multitool if you need to be prepared for anything, but this little treat is perfect for its role as general purpose everyday carry.

  4. The best uk legal carry available. Review by
    Another amazing spyderco, more UK friendly then the standard ukpk as the drop point looks like a friendly duck :-D the highlight is the weight, it’s so light, all you g10 snobs out there can rest assured that this FRN is super grippy more so then my spyderco Para 3 with G10.

    Updated needed guys at H/H this ukpk now comes with CTS-BD1N steel with a 64 hardness rating online forums are comparing it to VG10 and some with S90v, it’s above the usual CTS-bd1 and Aus-8 and the Chinese alphabet steel, it has nitrogen added to it to enhance the steel edge retention.

  5. Good but.......Review by
    Purchased this knife as i live in the uk and our knife laws are devised by m*, love the quality and build of it however as per previous reviews i don't understand why the tension bar finishes half way down, this makes the joint feel less sturdy, its still in our kitchen and acts as our go to sharp kitchen knife my edc is my spyderco urban the full length tension bar makes it snap into position, i also own a native 5 g10 and a dragonfly g10 as well as a dk looking at a manix just cos i love it , shouldn't take it outdoors mind (Posted on )
  6. Perfect EDC and all round great knife!Review by
    I bought this for the obvious reason that it was designed to be legal to carry in the UK and was not disappointed. It's lightweight and solid as anything, holds its edge well and is pretty easy to sharpen.
    It's just a fantastic knife and a joy to use I carry it everyday without issue and hardly feel it in my pocket and it's always there when I need it.

  7. Top notchReview by
    Have had this knofe for just over 6 months now and i love it. Good blade material. Holds its edge and sharpens brilliantly. The handles are also pretty damn durable. Been in the rain and dirt a fare bit and still no damage and cleans up quite easily with warm water and lemon juice. Some dont like the handles but if thats a problem, Cuscada do some awesome G10 scales for about 45 shipped so not to bad. (Posted on )
  8. Great light weight folderReview by

    thank HH

  9. My first spydercoReview by
    When I first got this knife, I was a little disappointed. I thought it felt like a toy. Very light and the fun handles feel like cheap plastic. After using it for 6 months, I absolutely love it.
    It is so comfortable in hand, very well built, the blade is sharp and has good edge retention and I know favour the lightness of it.
    I've bought several other uk legal folders since the ukpk, but always go straight for this one.
    Now looking for my next spyderco knife.

  10. The BestReview by
    Quite simply the best. I have used this every day for the past 6 months or so and it has taken a real battering but is still as strong as ever.

    The blade takes a razors edge with little effort and keeps it. It is so light weight you will hardly notice it in your pocket. It's probably one of the most comfortable knives I've held and has a very grippy handle and contrary to what some think, the handle scales are strong (I had a pallet at work fall on it just a few days ago and it didn't feel a thing!).

    I prefer the drop-point blade over the leaf personally as it does seem more precise (but maybe that is just a placebo) and it is slightly smaller, with the same cutting edge.

    If you want something that is UK legal, razor sharp and is going to take a battering every day, this is probably the best you can get, in my humble opinion.

  11. Great EDCReview by
    Really high quality blade. If you're in two minds over pulling the trigger on this knife as you've heard the handle feels some what cheap , I can assure you they are very durable, to be honest if someone told me they were g-10 and I didn't know better I would think they were a very highly quality g-10 , other than the fact the logo is moulded in and It's not made from layers it looks and feels like g-10. I really don't see FRN as a down grade and from what I can gather they both have very similar compositions. G-10 is made from resin and layers of woven glass fibers, FRN is made from nylon with glass fibres randomly (but evenly ) distributed throughout it. The only difference is FRN can be quickly and cheaply molded where as G-10 has to be machined. The knife is very comfortable in hand and is ultra lite weight (46.5g). the only changes I would like to make would be to blacken the pocket clip so it blend in with dark jeans, and I would like to see a better blade steel used maybe VG-10 or ZDP189. A few colour variations would also be a nice addition. The reason it only gets 4/5 is the fact that the value for money isn't excellent for the money I would like a vg-10 blade as bd1 runs on the soft side. (Posted on )
  12. Modern equivalent of a Gent's folder.Review by
    Been wanting one of these for quite some time now, mostly due to people talking about how good it is on forums and the like. When it turned up I was more than pleased to see it in the flesh.

    Really nicely made, hardly any weight when it's in your pocket, also comes with a strong pocket clip that is very inconspicuous. Steel is nice and easy to sharpen, and has excellent edge retention, I've only sharpened it once, out the box.

    Only bad point on this knife is the handle scales, they're guff. They feel very flimsy even though I know they're not. So I had a set of custom Micarta scales made for me by Custom Scale Division. Now it feels like a work of art in the hand.

    All in all, 5/5, same goes for Heinnie's delivery service. Absolutely outstanding!

  13. Well worth the moneyReview by
    Really lightweight, sturdy, great construction. Easy to open & close with one hand, and there's really not much chance of the blade closing on your finger. It handles well, and I find it actually fits the right hand better if you move the clip to the left-hand scale, which is easy enough to do, as long as you've got a torx driver.

    Finally, I'd say the blade profile is better than the leaf shape, as the knife takes up a little less room when closed, and it seems a bit more precise when cutting.

  14. new EDC Review by
    The product is excellent the blade takes a hair splitting edge and better yet holds it remarkable well . The frn handle comes a little rough straight out the box but after about 2 days of carrying it and will provide a perfect gripping surface with hands or gloves. Not only is the product 10 out of 10 but HH themselves provide an excellent service. I had some issues with the my delivery address and with just a phone call they sorted everything out for me.

  15. Slight disappointmentReview by
    Before I start i am still getting used to the knife and my opinion may change. I find the blade steel is easy to sharpen and I've quite quickly got a razors edge on it. The thing I am disappointed on however is the handle. I own the squeak so was aware how the FRN would feel , however it feels almost flimsy on the UKPK. Its a real shame because it really does put a downer on the knife. I feel the handle still feels weightier on the squeak and I'm still unsure why the tension bar stops halfway down the handle unlike the squeak that finishes at the end of the knife.

    This consequently makes the 'lock up' feels a lot less sturdy than the squeak which I was surprised about. However the knife still is up to a decent quality.

    All in all if you don't need the extra blade length I'd maybe invest in a Spyderco squeak instead. Or if you're willing to spend a little more maybe look and a slip joint at around the £80 price range. All that's said it is however a niche little edc , I don't have any major issues with it and will be keeping it in my edc rotation
