Spyderco Baby Jess Horn Folding Knife 2.6" VG10 Satin Plain Blade, Gray G10 Handles, Sprint Run - CX08GGYP
SPCX08GGYP: CX08GGYP Baby Jess Horn
The late Jess Horn was a true pioneer of modern custom knifemaking, producing collector quality folding knives in the early 1970s and directly inspiring Sal Glesser to form Spyderco. Horn later collaborated frequently with Glesser, creating several designs over the years, none more prized than the "Baby Horns" produced in the late 1990s. The knife you see here, the Baby Jess Horn, is a rebirth of that classic model.
Spyderco's signature ambidextrous opening hole deploys the slender blade. VG-10 blade steel promises a long lasting edge and the full flat grind is perfect for efficient slicing. Spyderco's "bug" logo adorns the presentation side of the blade, and Jess Horn's signature graces the reverse.
Despite the small proportions of the Baby Jess Horn, this knife is made to work. Textured gray G10 handle scales grant durability and grip. Full stainless steel liners and backspacer provide plenty of strength and a sturdy lock back extends midway down the handle, keeping the blade secure.
Making this new Baby Jess Horn easy to carry are its slim frame, lightweight (only 1.9 ounces), and a strong pocket clip for right side, tip-up carry.
Sprint Runs are limited edition production runs of knives not found in Spyderco's regular product line. Some are special versions of current models, while others are uniquely different expressions of classic, discontinued designs. No matter what form they take, every Sprint Run is a truly distinctive, one-time-only event. Once that knife is sold out, it will not be produced again in that exact form. That makes Spyderco Sprint Runs some of the most desirable and collectible knives they make.
