Description
SP79PSOR: Assist I
Spyderco

Spyderco named this knife after its principal job function, to Assist. The Assist was designed for emergency/fire/rescue professionals (and for the well-equipped civilian) who rely on their knives to function flawlessly under pressure. Even with twenty-five years experience in making rescue knives, Spyderco is still offering new high-tech features and the Assist model showcases the latest and greatest in this knife genre.

The VG-10 patented blunt-tipped blade is a toothy eighty-percent SpyderEdged for aggressively cutting seatbelts and fibrous material. The last inch of the tip we've left PlainEdge for detailed cutting (think sharpening pencils). Perched above the Round Hole, a Cobra Hood positions the thumb directly over the hole for quick blade deployment, then doubles as a leveraging platform for the thumb. The wavy pattern cut from the top of the blade (created by a fireman from Sweden) and along the inside of the handle let you place a piece of rope (between the half-open blade and handle) and scissor the blade shut- especially convenient for cutting rope in-and-around flesh without having to fully open/expose the knife's blade. The safety orange FRN handle is a molded wonder of Bi-Directional textured contours and bulges that ergonomically wrap around your palm. In the closed position, squeeze the blade deeper into the handle and a retractable carbide tip protrudes out from the base for breaking glass. Outlined in contrasting black on the handle's spine is a shrill and attention-pitched survival whistle. Carries left/right handed, tip-up by means of a tension wire clip.

Pros: Ease of Opening, Overall Quality, Handle Feel, Weight, Blade Sharpness, Lock Ease of Use, Lock Type
Cons: None
LOVE this knife ! I probably own +100 knives and this one is one of my top knives. As some folks say, it appears to be a bit BIG, but it has a VERY nice feel in your hand. Much nicer than many knives. And when it comes to being SHARP, this one is extremely sharp (even cut myself with it, which I haven't done in years). If you are looking for a smaller, compact pocketknife, this isn't it. But if you are looking for a VERY functional, nice feeling (grip) knife, this is a GREAT knife.

IMPRESSIVE
I primarily collect knives, this is one to keep in the car. I live here in canal country where on occasion people may turn up missing only to be found days and weeks later at the bottom of one of our local ponds or canals and they are still strapped in their seat belts. I feel comforted with this Spyderco Rescue knife.

This knife came super sharp right out of the box. It has a great feel to it. It fits very nice in my hand and the features that it comes are unbeatable. The blade is one the easiest to open that I have experienced.
