The CLIPIT family tree is branching out to include a new line of revolutionary tools called ClipiTools. They are specialty tools that combine a Spyderco high-performance cutting edge blade with the added convenience and functionality of a specialized tool. ClipiTools are a contemporary and new approach to the multitool and are setting new standards for the utilitarian tool offering convenience, performance, safety and reliability. The C176P&S ClipiTool with Serrated Blade presents two blade configuration options by having a smaller toothy-serrated, hollow-ground secondary Spyderco blade. The ClipiTool Serrated Blade features a two-inch full flat-ground 8Cr13MoV stainless blade offering unrivaled cutting performance for its size. The blade is non-locking with a forefinger choil that ensures greater security and safety when cutting. A Spyderco Round Hole is found on both the primary cutting blade and on the tool blade. The Serrated Blade features a small-sized Spyderco Hole that can be easily pinched between the thumb and index finger, smoothly releasing the tool inside. Each tool is non-locking and with a light push, folds back into the handle after use for safe transport An hour-glass steel pocket clip positions a ClipiTool so that it can carry tip-up inside a pocket.

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.
