Spyderco UK Penknife

The Spyderco UKPK (UK Penknife) with FRN handle, leaf-shaped blade and a flat grind is arguably the UK’s favourite selling pocket knife. Quite rightly so too! Made using CTS BD1 Stainless Steel with Spyderco’s Tradmark Round Hole system for simple ambidextrous opening, at the home of Spyderco in Golden Colorado. This already tells you that this is definitely a knife worth considering!



Because UK knife law does not allow for locking knives, the UKPK instead features a notch-joint at the knife’s pivot. This allows for the blade to feel secure in the open position but ultimately not lock it in place. This little knife also boasts a perfectly positioned deep finger choil and thumb ramp with jimping allowing for incredible control.



The handle is made from ultra-light FRN (Fibreglass reinforced nylon) which is warp-resistant, grippy and performs admirably in almost any environment.



In short the UKPK is a brilliant folding knife

    Good entry level Spiderco?

    Posted by Mike on 4th Oct 2020

    Purchased the UK pk awhile ago from HH never got round to a review!

    I have carried it most of the time and have used it at lunch for apples oranges etc and it has held up well for a cheap steel ? Cheap for Spiderco anyway ?

    There are lots of reviews about this model and at it's price point it is expensive here in Blighty compared with USA price in fact it's about 50% more !

    The HH g10 model would have been the way to go with its better materials but I ordered just before it was in stock !

    The quality of the knife is ok for the USA price but a little below its uk price point I believe?

    The knife does carry well in the pocket and with its half back spring doesn't show up as obviously a knife ?

    Performance isn't bad for cheap steel and is on par with Chinese knives?

    The only thing you have to worry about is people around you don't like it l when you deploy that thick leaf blade !

    This knife and the other uk pk models are pushing their luck as uk legal knives as I know the Police do not like one handed deployment knives ! So care needs to be exercised carrying them !

    I would replace this one with the clip point version next I think as the blade looks to be tougher at the point and its some bit cheaper for some reason ?

    Service from HH was swift as always

    To sum up a good entry level Spiderco if a little pricey!

    Can't fault it!

    Posted by Best UK legal EDC knife? on 29th Jul 2020

    There is literally nothing I can find wrong with this knife. You can tell it was designed with the UK market in mind, and it manages to tick all of the boxes in terms of portability, ergonomics and blade design. Nice strong lock, no blade play, quality steel with a good edge. Slim and compact with a deep pocket clip... what's not to like?

    Almost pocket perfection

    Posted by Badger on 22nd Feb 2020

    Almost perfect knife. Had this for at least 4 years, bought from Heinnie at the time when it was much cheaper. Blade size is substantial for a UK legal folder. Around the 'country' its fine, but I don't carry it when I know I'll be driving or going into London, just two big in case of stop and search. Sure it's legal but I'd rather not have to explain and prove the point or 'surrender' it.

    Really prefer this 'half slip joint'. Its looser than the otherwise perfect Urban or the overly tiny Squeak, whilst being perfectly adequate for tasks. Hand a knife novice a brand new, unbroken in urban and try telling them its not a lock knife - you'll go through the whole slip joint definition thing, but with this one its obvious to everyone.

    Steel holds up just fine whatever i've thrown at it over the years. Food prep is A-OK, for hard woodworking I've had it chip ever so slightly but only at the bevel (<1mm) which sharpened out OK.

    Only downside is the FRN, which I've never been a fan of (when there's USA spydie G10 as an alternative).

    If it ever breaks I'll buy another. Probably the drop point version for a change or the Heinnie version if its still available.

    Slip-joint broke

    Posted by Kolbe on 31st Oct 2019

    After reading the reviews I was excited about this knife. When I bought it the knife was great. Unfortunately after only three months, with minimal use, the slip-joint mechanism broke. Now the blade freely opens and closes with no resistance. Perhaps I received a faulty knife as it sounds like my experience is the exception.

    Good knife

    Posted by David on 8th Jun 2019

    Really good knife I've had it for a few weeks now and used it a lot and there's still no sign of wear and tear still sharp as well fits well in the hand for a small knife.

    Definitely ordering from here again good Service and fast delivery

    Excellent EDC

    Posted by Tony on 4th Jun 2019

    This is probably the best compromise of everything allowed in the UK it has an excellnt feel in the hand, good quality tool, the steel it is made of is rust resistant and the edge retention is good, if you are cutting a lot of paper the edge will wear and will need to be repaired, but it is also easy to repair the edge.
    My only complaint is the pocket clip could be a bit more grippy as I have lost one of these already with it catching on a bag strap and the knife being so light I didnt knotice.

    I like it so much I have just ordered tthe Spyderco UK Penknife Lightweight Dark Blue CPM S110V just to haver the same knife with better steel.

    Long term user review

    Posted by Jp on 14th May 2019

    I have owned this knife for several years ,i purchased from heinnie and i was very happy with the service,fast delivery.
    I really like the super light weight of the knife.
    I use this knife as a lightweight work knife,opening bags,cutting straps etc. Only ever light cutting tasks.
    When its in your pocket you hardly know its there.
    The bd1n steel spyderco use in the ukpk does not hold an edge for long. The steel is quite soft ,probably to enable ease of sharpening but if i am honest i would say its performance in this respect is poor.
    The softness of the steel is more to do with spyderco heat treat rather than the steel its self.
    After approximately 2 years of light use the small back spring broke.
    Yes i was disapointed but i still use the knife as the finger choil stops the blade from closing on the fingers.
    I was thinking of getting a heinnie version of the ukpk with s30v steel but i am not sure if the design has changed from the version which has the small weak,badly designed back spring and the low hardness blade.
    My purchase was in 2015 so hopefully they have improved since then.

    Well designed but cheap materials

    Posted by Peter on 30th Apr 2019

    The design of this knife is good with the finger choil preventing the blade from closing on your fingers.

    The FRN scales are cheap feeling and the blade steel is average at best. Does take a sharp edge (for a short time) though.

    The main thing preventing this knife getting a higher score are spydercos other uk legal knives. The urban, squeak and spy-dk all have better blade steel and feel stronger with their full back springs at only a couple of pounds more.

    Then there is the Hennie Haynes UKPK which has far better blade steel, slightly nicer scales and a full backspring for an extra £13.

    Great all purpose knife

    Posted by Martin on 15th Apr 2019

    The ideal knife for work and adventuring outdoors. It is especially well suited to food prep, but will handle pretty much anything you throw at it. I'd argue there should be one in everybody's collection!
