Spyderco’s popular SLIPIT knives are non-locking folders that combine the advantages of one-hand opening and clip carry with the legal permissibility of a non-locking mechanism.

 

Originally released in 2009, the Spyderco lightweight knife exemplifies all the best qualities of the SLIPIT concept and combines them with the weight-saving advantages of an injection-molded fiberglass-reinforced-nylon (FRN) handle. Its blade is machined from premium Böhler-Uddeholm N690Co steel—a high-performance stainless steel alloyed with cobalt, molybdenum, and vanadium. Its full-flat grind and leaf-shaped profile provide an exceptional balance of strength, low-friction cutting performance, and point utility. A prominent index-finger choil (finger groove) helps prevent unintentional blade closure, while Spyderco’s Trademark Round Hole ensures positive one-handed opening with either hand.

 

The Urban Lightweight’s textured FRN handle scales are anchored to the handle’s solid steel back spacer, which provides structural strength and serves as the spring for the knife’s notched-joint non-locking pivot mechanism. The handle also features a reversible deep-pocket wire clip that allows left or right-side tip-up carry and keeps the knife tucked low in the pocket for a discreet, socially friendly image.

    Spyderco urban.

    Posted by Mark Phillips on 17th Apr 2021

    Wanted a spyderco urban for years. Either talk myself out of it or get something else instead. Finally pulled the trigger and now wonder why I hadn't sooner. Usually wait to review so can get a good measure of an item, but I've used the nuts off it yesterday and today. And its a knife I've not stopped being excited about. Deep leaf blade is my favourite. Grippy thumb ramp and choil. Great ergos choking up to blade with said thumb ramp and choil, and choking up even further holding blade with ring finger anchored firmly in choil. Nice and light with tension on blade open, which some may find too stiff. Its perfect for me. Hate light back springs. Back tension bar is thick and full length unlike ukpk. Fairly well centred and no blade play. Spent the past 2 days working with bamboo, making arrow shafts, cutting cordage, and many other cutting chores with it. N690 is okay but I'm still searching for that perfect steel. To me, after many stroppings and about 4 or 5 sharpenings, it seems similar to vg10. Hand on heart, if you're toying with the idea just order one. Not been this made up with a slip joint in a long time. Another sprint run again with a different steel would be good. Anyway, will continue to use the crap out of it and see how it goes.

    Not bad for the size

    Posted by Randy Banks on 19th Mar 2021

    This knife is well designed and crafted, like all Spyderco products and it is certainly a lightweight unit. Although its small size makes it very handy, I find it just a bit too small for my liking. The size, too, coupled with a fairly stiff notch joint, makes one-handed opening a bit more difficult than I'd like. On both fronts, I far prefer my UK Penknife, with which I'll be sticking for the foreseeable.

    Spyderco urban

    Posted by Stephen Lewis on 16th Mar 2021

    Small, light, unobtrusive, friendly, well made and b****y sharp! ..... easy on the eye and easy on the pocket ..... a worthy edc.

    The knife is well made but a little smaller than I anticipated but ideal as an every day carry. Will probably pick something a little larger in the future. I think it is also on the expensive side for its size. Overall I like the Spyderco designs and

    Would choose Spyderco again. I really like the Paramilitary 3 but unfortunately not permitted in the UK. Maybe for use in Spain

    Heinne Haynes are superb; as is this knife.

    Posted by Rich likes pocket knives on 7th Aug 2020

    I'd like to start by thanking Heinne Haynes for having the best customer service of any online sales outlet I've ever used. So much more than speedy delivery: if you ring with a query you get straight through to an actual human being! And the human being is knowledgeable and so helpful. Returns are easy and swift. This is how to run online shopping. Thank you. Oh and the Spyderco Urban is awesome too.

    Awesome best EDC I’ve owned

    Posted by Wood oak on 20th Jun 2020

    A little smaller than the UKPK the Urban has a strong lock up when open, the strong retention allows the tool to feel solid and firm in the hand and with the finger choil you have an extra sense of hand safety security. Blade steel is good, rolls rather than chips but sharpens up easily enough and maintains a Very good sharp edge for light tasks that this knife was designed for. Wish they did these still in K390, I have a Pingo in k390 and its an amazing steel. Ergos are amazing as you’d expect from a Sal designed knife, and the pocket clip stays just out of reach of your fingers so as not to cause any hot spots. A little over priced considering for only £10 more you can get a UKPK in S30VN but having said that the Urban is only a little more than a normal UKPK. Anyway a great EDC tool, if you get one you will not be disappointed with it at all. Blades small enough to go un-noticed but large enough to achieve light tasks. It’s light in the pocket in that you can forget it’s there and the click is nice and strong but doesn’t destroy your pocket lining because it sits on top of a flat smooth surface. Buy one and enjoy

    Awesome knife, better than expected.

    Posted by LB on 21st May 2020

    Great little knife, I have the UKPK but wanted a smaller blade & the Urban was a perfect replacement. And as usual Heinnie Haynes service is excellent even in times of a pandemic they still manage to deliver the next day...

    Outstanding service, outstanding knife

    Posted by SGoldia on 1st Mar 2020

    I ordered my knife yesterday afternoon and by midday today it was in my hand - just exemplary service yet again from Heinnie Haynes. The knife itself is pure class. Lovely weight, compact but adequate for my needs, easy single hand opening and closing, with a firm but manageable action. Razor sharp out of the box with perfect blade alignment - I love it. I only wish they had it in more colours.
