Spyderco is more than just another knife brand. Spyderco has an image all its own, which conveys individuality, resourcefulness and a "don’t mess with me" attitude. The Spyderco image was cultivated by the first knives the company offered, which showed off the company’s patented SpyderEdge serrated blade that increases a knife’s effective cutting edge length. The classic Spyderco knife is a lockback knife with a trademarked Spyderco Round Hole for one-handed opening and an ultra-smooth opening mechanism. Most Spyderco lockback ... Learn more about Spyderco knives also feature a pocket clip and/or lanyard hole for fast access. A Spyderco knife is made to last, which is why the company uses stainless steel construction and advanced metal alloys like cobalt-enriched VG-10 steel for a sturdier, sharper and more durable knife. ...

    This is a discontinued limited production Spyderco folder. If you have an STP coupon to buy it for under $100, that is a good price. It is a niche product and not for everyone, but a good knife if you are in the niche.

    Alexandru Diaconescu designed the Junior as a first knife for his young son. His design is focused on small users, secure grip and safety. I am a 5' 8" man with smaller than average hands for my size, and I can just get four fingers on the handle. If your hands are bigger than mine, this is probably not the right knife for you.

    It has the biggest choil I have seen on a folding knife. A "choil" is a forged or ground relief at the base of the blade where the master bevel and sharpened edge ends and the full thickness of the blade steel begins. Randall combat knives and imitations have a finger choil just in front of the handle, for a "forefinger ahead of guard" grip when you need an extra secure hold. The Junior has what I would call a handle choil. It gives a rock solid grip and makes it impossible for your fingers to slip forward onto the the blade's edge. Indonesian goloks have handles like this: it is an old idea and a good one, but I have not seen it before on a folding knife.

    The Junior is very compact and light for its blade size. It is 4.125" long closed and weighs 2.9 ounces. Excluding the pocket clip and its screws, it is 3/8" thick. Its 3.2" blade is 1.25" broad and looks like a miniature chef's knife. It is pointed but it is not designed for stabbing. Its broad, flat ground blade excels at cutting rope and cardboard boxes, shaving kindling, ripping seams, etc. It is a great little food preparation knife.

    VG-10 steel means you will need good sharpening tools, but you won't need to sharpen very often. It is made in Japan and its fit and finish are excellent. The pocket clip can be moved for right or left hand carry or removed altogether. Some people think the clip is too tight: it works well for me, but you may not like it with corduroy slacks. It has an oversize lanyard hole. Screw-together construction means it can be disassembled for cleaning.

    The Junior is a unique design and a good one if you need what it does. It is a miniature folding chef's knife for smaller people. If you're not a smaller person, a $60 Spyderco Endura is a better deal.

    Even the smallest person can change the course of the future.

    This is as light as a feather. I forget it's in my pocket. And it's a Spyderco! My top brand is Bench Made, a close second is Spyderco. Easy open and close.
    Wish it had a couple of serrations on the blade, but those might weaken it so I'll not complain.

    You will not be disappointed! I'm buying a spare. STP price simply cannot be beat.

    Go for it.

    The Des Horn (a la Spyderco) arrived yesterday (packed nicely by STP) and was immediately impressive with its overall quality, design, stylishness, and fit / finish. It is a lightweight (~2 oz) having a three piece polished shallow patterned G-10 outer body (scales and handle back), recessed skeletonized stainless liners, and tip-down wire clip with most of the weight being in the CPM S30V Wharncliffe blade's hefty spine core and pivot steel; both grind (flat) and sharpness are as to be expect from Spyderco. The liner lock is simple but fully effective in achieving a firm purchase to the pivot steel. The knife's maker (in Taichung) demonstrates first class production quality in every detail so I have no negative criticisms. This strong yet sleek beauty of a Deco styled light to medium duty folder is sure to delight most any owner. To use as an EDC or for a special 'night at the opera'?

    May not suit everyone's taste but if you appreciate design, great materials, fit and finish then you'll love this knife. Not meant to be hard use, but is very capable as a light duty stylish companion. Quality is as expected from Spyderco ... first rate.

    Great looking, very well built, and wickedly sharp. It is very small, so if that is not what you are looking for this is probably the wrong choice.

    This little Cricket exhibits first rate quality. It is built on a specially machined 'slab' of stainless steel twice the thickness of the opposing piece underlying the single ornamental scale. The high grade blade steel comes from Japan's first and only maker of VG10 and is quite sharp right out of the box. The clip will allow this compact little fellow to function as a 'money clip' should the carrier not wish to have quick access from pocket/belt clipped carry. Although the special scale is unique and well made, I am neutral in my appreciation of this particular style; the scale edging has not been polished and detracts from the overall scale beauty (but beauty is in this beholder's eye...it is still very unique). Considering the great pricing through STP and the no compromise Spyderco build quality this little Cricket is a keeper.

    Nice little knife. Solid, well made, and felt better in my hand than expected. Purchased for its unique look and style... the knife delivered!

    Knife comes opened and the brass is all scuffed up. Grind is not normal for traditional puuko knife either. I returned the first one and the second in ordered had same issues. Spyderco is also very silly for putting a hole in a fixed blade knife, it serves no purpose. I guess sierra is selling seconds due to both knives being opened and the brass being scuffed.
