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 Urban Lightweight 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.

    Posted by Chris farrugia on 21st Aug 2020

    This knife is amazing! built to a great standard and fits perfectly in my hand very comfortable and looks great. It functions exactly how I need it too for what I need it for. Razor sharp out the box this is a must have buy once you get it you won’t know how you did without it

    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.

    A great N690 UK legal knife

    Posted by Alijami on 15th Jun 2019

    I've had a Byrd Tern for nearly five years and what a fantastic value knife. Still going strong. Recently I was seduced into buying a N690 bladed UK legal carry knife. I was really disappointed but still fancied an N690 upgrade from my 8Cr13MoV class norm. I turned to the Spyderco Urban which has been on my radar for years, possibly held back by FRN scales over my preferred G10. However needs must and I finally pulled the trigger. I previously said that Tern surpassed expectations. The Urban fully satisfies higher expectations, scale material excepted. In many ways I compare this with the Tern rather than the UKPK. The handle length is fine for a four finger grip for small to medium hands. Peeps with large hands may find it a tad small. The blade is about the same length as the Tern but has a longer cutting edge due to tang/choil/handle differences. In practice it perfectly safe and comfortable though the Tern wins out at the half-stop. Full flat grind so a great slicer. A great size when there is no need to push the UK legal edge limit. I'd like to say just buy one but I seem to have got the last one in stock.

    the best knife

    Posted by cheif tommy on 9th Jan 2018

    i've had the urban for a bit over a year now. this knife is very close to perfect for me, great slim profile, you dont really feel it in your pocket. the opening is easily done one handed but also closes securely. the edge is easy to sharpen and holds a very fine edge. its also simple to take apart and clean when needed. if you dont have one, get one. you will love it

    Beware it bites

    Posted by Rachael on 12th Jan 2017

    Received my Urban yesterday from Heinne's usual speedy delivery service,and I was not disappointed .I have the squeak which is a great little knife but sometimes is lacking in blade length for some tasks,so I decided to get the urban which for me is the perfect EDC the blade is super sharp but it can bite if you are not careful as I found out the hard way .But to sum it up I have a large collection of knives and the Urban has to be the best knife I have brought,so if you haven't already got the Urban get your self one you will not be disappointed.

    UK legal pocket perfection

    Posted by Ryan on 11th Nov 2016

    Having previously owed both the Squeak & a UKPK this is bay fay my favoured choice out of the slept family. The Squeak on a couple of occasions i found the blade length a little too stout & found myself wanting more blade. The UKPK (my example anyway) didn't feel it had as a strong back spring & folded a lot easier than both the Squeak & the Urban. For me the Urban is the perfect UK EDC knife, it doesn't look too threatening to NKP, plus it has a better steel than the UKPK. Since owning it 18 months ago it hasn't left my pocket.
