Description
SP163PBK: C163PBK Pingo
Spyderco
 
A collaborative effort of Danish knifemakers Jens Anso and Jesper Voxnaes, the Pingo was specifically designed to conform to the knife laws of Denmark, which prohibit both lock-blade folding knives and all forms of one-hand-opening knives.

The heart of the Pingo is its distinctive sheepfoot blade, which is ground from Böhler-Uddeholm’s premium N690Co stainless steel. The blade is designed to meet Danish legal length limits while still providing a very functional and versatile cutting tool. Its Trademark Round Hole clearly identifies it as a Spyderco knife and provides a handy purchase for two-handed opening, but the hole is purposely small to prevent one-handed blade-opening methods. Similarly, its stout notched-joint mechanism is powered by a strong spring that helps hold the blade securely in the open and closed positions, supporting its safe use as a cutting tool while precluding one-handed opening.

The Pingo’s handle is comprised of injection-molded fiberglass-reinforced-nylon (FRN) scales and a sturdy stainless steel back spacer. The scales feature a molded checkered texturing that ensures a secure grip without being too abrasive. A reversible deep-pocket wire clip provides both left and right-side tip-up carry, keeping the knife accessible for immediate use while blending unobtrusively with virtually any color of clothing.

Although designed to meet the unique needs of the Danish knife community, the Pingo’s versatile design and socially friendly demeanor make it a perfect choice for knife users everywhere. It not only transcends the limits of the traditional non-locking pocketknife, but also redefines Spyderco’s own definition of a SLIPIT because of its purposeful two-hand-opening design.

A gentleman's knife
Nice small size, typical Spyderco razor sharp edge right out of the box. The only drawback is no lock on the blade.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Blade Material, Pocket Clip, Overall Quality, None
Cons: Handle Feel, Ease of Opening, Handle Material
Got my pingo a couple of weeks ago and so far so good. Knife came sharp like every other spyderco I have owned (this is number four I think). The blade is smaller than I normally carry but is still very handy. It really does cut like a larger blade. The handle is shaped kinda weird so is not as comfortable for me. I also would like to see a different handle material. The FRN is ok but it's not my favorite. The spring is kinda stiff to make it harder to open one handed, it can be done though it is fairly hard. The blade steel seems ok though i havnt had it long enough to be sure. Normally I would not have purchased this knife but having recently moved to England the knife laws here required a change in my EDC. So all in all a very good knife minor personal issues with the handle but nothing to reduce it's excellent rating. So if you need a reliable smaller non locking knife this is a very good choice.

Pros: Weight, Blade Material, Blade Sharpness
Cons: None
A great little pocket knife
Love the blade shape and the light weight. At this price point, however, there is a lot of competition - for example, there is some great stuff from Kershaw for less money. I have to admit that I am attracted by JENS ANSO knives, but have been increasingly dissatisfied with some of the blade shapes - the fact the blade looks like the mouth of a Baleen Whale is great, but it doesn't add to the knife's utility. The now gone Spyderco Rock Lobster was an underappreciated knife and hopefully was not the last of ANSO's practical knives. All in all, the Pingo is a great lil knife ... I carry it every day.
