Why do knife companies apply animal-like names and descriptions to their knives? In Spyderco's defense, the Spyderco round hole and super sharp edge are reminiscent of eyes and claws.
Think cats. Cats represent a highly developed level of predatory resourcefulness, sleek sharp claws and efficiency. The C129G Cat CLIPIT has a leaf-shaped CTS BD1N blade just under two-and-a-half inches in length that is flat-ground for hair popping sharpness.
Spyderco's cat is unique. They aimed for a high pinnacle of cutting adeptness but demanded it be polished and sophisticated in appearance. So, they combined cat-claw sharpness with a G-10 handle and Michael Walker LinerLock. The black G-10 handle is shaped and sized ergonomically with full-length skeletonized liners inside for strength without bulky weight.
A deep silhouette wire clip burrows the knife down deeply in a pant's pocket with the tip facing up ready to carry left- or right-handed. Spyderco believes the name is appropriate and think you might too.
