Because of its specialized format, training in Pikal is essential. This non-sharpened blade lets you practice drills, motions and sparing. The red G-10 handle denotes it’s a trainer, that mirrors the live knife in size, balance and proportion.

In the Philippine Visayan dialect, the literal translation of the word Pikal means to rip. In the U.S. the term Pikal remains relatively new but a company called Shivworks is making headway in its introduction to the American market. Its English definition is twofold: It is a rising martial arts genre and the name of a Spyderco knife designed to accompany this art form. As a self-defense platform, Pikal is carried out holding a knife in reverse grip with the sharpened edge facing inward toward the user. Pikal’s objective is not flowing drills with your opponent but rapidly and effectively striking and surprising.

Protruding from the top of the blade’s spine is a removable Emerson Opening feature. The device popularized and patented by Ernest Emerson of Emerson Knives, functions by catching the back of a pant’s pocket when drawing the knife, opening blade in the same motion. Spyderco’s P’Kal is designed for reverse grip use with a formidable choil on top of the handle that holds the pinky finger when gripping, affording better dexterity and control.

Spyderco’s patented Ball Bearing Lock® sits above and behind the blade. The ball bearing component is housed in a plastic cover that’s accessible for both left and right hand opening. P’Kal clips in a pocket with a steel wire clip and carries tip-up.

Pros: Handle Material, Overall Quality, Lock Ease of Use, Weight, Lock Type, Ease of Opening, None
Cons: Blade Sharpness
a must for p'kal owners
Great trainer, carbon copy of the actual p'kal in size and weight, the blade is thicker but weight is countered by the holes. Bright red g10 handles clearly identify as a training blade, the fit and finish is first class as expected from spyderco. Quite expensive being the same price as the live blade but collectors / martial artists will see the value.
