You see interesting knives and equally interesting people when walking the aisles of a knife show. Small by business standards and specialized in nature, the cutlery industry has names everyone knows. One is Bob Terzuola, we call him Bob T. Bob’s made handmade knives since the 1970s, has collaborated with the top production companies and acknowledged as the founder of tactical knifemaking. In our small industry he’s a rock star. His designs are clean, militaristic, finely polished and perceived as having a high-level of performance and physical appearance. His fourth collaboration with Spyderco is the Bob T SLIPIT.
Bob T’s SLIPIT has a CMP-S30V blade that to close must overcome the resistance of a small ball bearing. Behind the cutting edge he placed a finger choil/guard keeping the index finger away from the open blade and keeping the blade from closing on the hand when cutting. Carbon fiber handle and backspacer make this carry friendly SLIPIT both hi-tech and luxurious. Left/right pocket clip is nested in its’ mounting and won’t pivot or loosen. A folded leather lanyard comes with it, tied off with a silver crimp.
