The Spyderco Harpy is an ideal knife for those who demand precision and control in their cutting tasks.
The hawkbill point knife features a unique curved blade shape that makes it perfect for controlled pulling cuts. The blade shape comes from the marine/commercial fishing industry where severing rope, line, webbing, or netting is done at arm's length. The arc of the blade keeps what you are cutting from slipping off the tip, making it an ideal tool for those who require a high level of precision in their cutting tasks.
The Spyderco Harpy's handle is made of stainless steel, and it includes a cutout for fast drying when used in or around water. The metal clip positions it for tip-down carry, and it provides a secure and comfortable grip while in use. Additionally, it features a back lock mechanism and a David Boye dent in the locking lever.
The knife weighs a total of 3.75 ounces, with a blade length of 2.75 inches made of VG-10 stainless steel. Its serrated edge enhances its cutting ability, making it an ideal choice for tasks that require a little extra edge. The knife's overall length is 6.5 inches when open and 3.88 inches when closed.

Quick! List the most respected and innovative knife companies you can think of. If you know anything about knives, Spyderco is somewhere near the top. Spyderco Inc. makes some of the most unique and downright bizarre knife designs you'll see on the market, but from the number of passionate fans discussing, debating, and learning everything they can about Spyderco knives, it's clear that the company has done something right.
From the Glesser Family and the Spyderco Crew:
Since starting Spyderco we've been told our knives are different, peculiar, even out there. All true. Thinking beyond established knife industry barriers allowed us to introduce new and radical innovations to the knife culture including: One-hand opening, serrations on a folder and a clip to attach a knife to a pocket.
We didn't go into business to rake in a mountain of dough we're here for more selfish reasons- indulging our passion for creating knives. Spyderco is definitely out of the norm in the knife industry in our dedication to researching and developing fresh, improved and better performing materials all with function and reliability being key.
Someone once said to Sal Glesser, Spyderco's owner, 'You must design in the dark because your knives look so strange.' True again. Our recognizable appearance is a result of designing ergonomic functional tools rather than applying lipstick and nylons to a pocketknife. We may look curious, homely, whatever, but we'll never be called unusable or undependable.
Making knives that consistently deliver reliable high-performance requires an ongoing commitment to testing. In our million-dollar testing facility we examine edge retention with a CATRA machine, look for rust development with Q-FOG, check the force needed to open and close a knife. We also repeatedly test for stress, wear, optimal heat-treating and actively search for higher quality, performance enhancing steels and materials.
As a customer you probably don't think about this, or much care, but it allows us to put forth a promise. When you purchase a Spyderco you are buying a high-quality reliable cutting tool designed and manufactured for peak performance and ergonomic comfort. Those Who Know Carry Spyderco.
