SP129GP: C129GP Cat G10

Why do knife companies apply animal-like names and descriptions to their knives? In Spyderco's defense, the Spyderco Round Hole and super sharp edge are reminiscent of eyes and claws. 

Think cats. Cats represent a highly developed level of predatory resourcefulness, sleek sharp claws and efficiency. The C129GP Cat CLIPIT has a leaf-shaped CTS-BD1 blade just under two-and-a-half inches in length that is flat-ground for hair popping sharpness. 

The cat is unique. Spyderco aimed for a high pinnacle of cutting adeptness but demanded it be polished and sophisticated in appearance. So, they combined cat-claw sharpness with a G10 handle and Michael Walker LinerLock. The black G10 handle is shaped and sized ergonomically with full-length skeletonized liners inside for strength without bulky weight. 

A deep silhouette wire clip burrows the knife down deeply in a pant's pocket with the tip facing up ready to carry left- or right-handed. 

Spyderco believes the name is appropriate and think you might too.

Cons: Blade Material
Great value
This is a first impression as I just got the Cat two days ago. But she hasn't left my pocket. Great little EDC value gem. I wouldn't have normally chosen BD1 as a blade steel. But as a budget steel, it is all one can ask for. Good ergo, reasonable materials, and vood price all add up to a great value. The Cat is not pocket candy, but she is a little beater that will feel good in the hand a d easy on the pocket book.

Pros: Handle Feel, Overall Quality
Cons: None
Mandarin mauling, tangerine orange peeling, apple carving CAT. Having tip of blade so close to your finger tips is great for precision fruit carving. Go anywhere legal blade length. Pivot screw came a bit tight. Backed it off to flick open.

Not perfect, but close
There are many areas in which this knife doesn't disappoint, so I'll start with the few in which it does. Where fit and finish are concerned, this knife is generally just fine, however my particular piece came with an ugly burr inside the thumb hole. Functionally this is a non-issue, it just looks terrible. The only other place I can ding this knife is that it doesn't have jimping on the thumb ramp or finger choil. Again, functionally there's nothing wrong with that, so this is all personal preference. This knife is incredibly ergonomic and having a good grip on it isn't compromised, but many other less expensive Spydercos have this feature, and I would have loved to see it on this one. Everything else I have to say about this knife is completely positive. The handle fills the hand well and allows for a full grip, and the thumb ramp and finger choil contribute to the fantastic ergonomics. This knife can be flicked open relatively easily, and the liner lock is easy to access for closing. The G10 looks good and provides a good texture. The pocket clip is great and sits the knife deeply in the pocket. Overall, I definitely recommend this knife for a good sub-3" option.
