Spyderco SlipIt Bob Terzuola Knife,Winner of Blade Magazine's 2009 Collaboration of the Year award, the Spyderco Bob T. Slip-It -- also known as the Spyderco Terzuola -- combines Spyderco's popular folding clip design with Bob Terzuola's improved slip joint. If you want a knife with traditional action but modern features, the Slip-It is the answer. Until now, it was available only on custom-order Terzuola knives.

Older slip-joint knives, with which nearly all of us are still fondly acquainted, were not designed for easy one-handed opening. Put a thumb stud on the standard slip-joint, and you'll probably still resort to two hands to open the blade. The spring-bar slip joint knife resists most strongly at full-open and full-closed positions. Terzuola's innovation works with a very different action. Pressure for opening or closing the blade overcomes the resistance of a ball bearing. Movement is free and easy in between the locked positions. For added safety, the Terzuola adds a second stop to slow the action of the closing blade, allowing fingers a second chance to escape.

The Spyderco Terzuola handle is woven carbon fiber, one of the lightest and strongest materials now available, and a short leather lanyard makes retrieval from the pocket's edge even simpler. The knife's stainless steel pocket clip mounts for either left or right hand use. The Terzuola's plain-edged Wharncliffe blade of CPM S30V high carbon stainless steel remains under the common European legal limit of 3 inches. With a convenient closed length of four inches and an open length that's a practical seven inches, owners of the Terzuola should still be able to carry it nearly anywhere in the world without complications.
