Spyderco 2018 Production Sample – ClipiTool Standard

March 9, 2018

The ClipiTool Standard is very similar to the ClipiTool Rescue, but with a different tool selection. The tools on this variant don’t lock, but the ‘slipit-action’ was solid. The tools are vey easy to access, a lot easier than many other pocket tools out there. It should be priced well too. If I recall correctly, it should have an MSRP below $100.

Spyderco 2018 Production Sample – ClipiTool Rescue

March 9, 2018

I’ll admit I never really took to the first series of all-steel smaller clipitools. They were heavy for their size and offered few tools. I might have to adjust that opinion for this design. The ClipiTool feels like a regular EDC folder, but it also happens to have a few extra tools to go with it. The blade is just like any other Spyderco we like; full flat grind, forefinger choil, proper G-10, properly engaging linerlock etc.. The tools also open one-handed. The rescue hook, like the blade, is supported by a linerlock. The overall package is very thin, making it more of an EDC knife/tool combo. I hope this concept does well for Spyderco, with further development I’m hoping to see lefty-friendly tool/blade opening.

Spyderco 2013 Concept Model – ClipiTool

March 4, 2013

I have seen earlier versions of this ClipiTool concept model over the years, and it’s impressive to see how an idea became a design and now a production quality tool. The ClipiTool features a blade similar to a Ladybug and a tool. The three ClipiTool concept models featured either a pair of scissors, serrated sheepsfoot blade or a bottlecap opener/screwdriver tool.

All the blades/tools featured a forefinger choil for control, and a measure of safety since these ClipiTools were slipits. I could easily open the knife blades with one hand, and the round holes for the tools seemed to work better for me than a regular small nailnick in tools of this size. Personally, I would prefer these small tools to be a bit lighter, perhaps with G10 or FRN instead of steel for the handle scales?
