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.

    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.

    The 'Goldilocks' of UK-friendly EDC knives

    Posted by Hewspeed on 23rd May 2016

    I've used mine for a few months now, replacing the Squeak, UKPK & Dragonfly (and many others before) as my current favourite EDC knife. I might have just found the my ideal UK friendly, daily carry knife! In my opinion, Spyderco have hit the sweet spot with the Urban Lightweight - not too big to be intimidating; not too small for most everyday chores, moderate cost, quality high-carbon steel, a welcome greater resistance when opening & closing the blade than the other notch-joint, non-locking Spyderco knives, practical leaf-shaped blade, ergonomic grip & a firm hold from the textured 'jimping' on the thumb ramp of the blade hump & the index finger choil. Like many other Spyderco knives, it's great for lefties like me with the ambidextrous one-hand opening & the moveable wire clip that sits the knife low in the pocket for discreet carry. Word of warning if you do move the pocket clip - don't completely remove the retaining screw - just loosen it enough to pull the clip free! I too generally prefer G10 scales to FRN, however in practice the FRN works well enough. Lack of a lanyard hole is a little irksome on the SLIPIT range however you can easily attach a small retrieval lanyard through the wire clip. All in all, I'd highly recommend this knife. I've teamed my Urban Lightweight with an EagleTac D25A Clicky flashlight (1 x AA), Leatherman Micra/ Squirt PS4 mini-tool, Gerber Shard/Artifact pry tool & a Hinderer Investigator pen (aluminium) - all from Heinnie - to have a well-balanced, versatile, highly functional, light -weight, slimline & low profile EDC set up. Fantastic service from Heinnie as always - fast, well packaged, a friendly knowledgable team if you need advice, no quibbles if something is not right. The paragon of online retailers.

    Superb UK legal carry knife thats just the right size.

    Posted by Paul Laters on 16th May 2016

    I have a few knives that I can carry everyday. A few Spyderco and other makes. The Spyderco UKPK is a superb knife but it can be seen as being quite big and can get some comments from non knife people who see it. The Spyderco urban just doesn't seem to attract the same comments. It cuts just as well but with the blade being that much smaller it goes mostly un noticed where the UKPK may have caused comment. I also own one of the original G10 Spyderco urbans but the new lightweight version is getting more and more pocket time as it fits my needs of a pocket knife so well.

    EDC

    Posted by SGB on 5th May 2016

    Prefer my urban G10 which has a proper half stop I like the tension on the back Spring which is excellant the major downside is the half stop which isn't one before it engages the blade has already come into contact with a finger I can't see how spyderco signed off on this it seems to be an obvious flaw the maniagos are usually pretty much perfect I have over a dozen spydercos I'd still like a ladybug size and quality slip joint
