Spyderco 2013 Prototype – Jot Singh Khalsa

I was happy to see the Jot Singh Khalsa return. I know the design gets a lot of flak from its looks, but the little knife is surprisingly useful in my experience. The large hump is meant to mimic a guard and I found it to be useful in all sorts of EDC cutting tasks. I took some extra pictures of this knife in my hand, to illustrate this.

The main reason to bring the Khalsa back was both customer demand and to do it right. The maker at the time apparently couldn’t quite get the quality where it could be. I have one of the old Khalsas and while the knife is –to me- certainly good, the tolerances and lock-up could be better. None of these issues showed in this prototype. The fit and finish was excellent, lock up was tight and the knife just felt very solid in my hands. I will definitely try to get this updated version of the Spyderco Jot Singh Khalsa.
