Multi-purpose cutting tools have become a standard in the cutlery industry. This versatile trait is exemplified in Spyderco's collaborative effort with Tim Wegner. The SP48 Tim Wegner CLIP-IT offers the strength and heft required in a camp-style field knife, combined with the lightweight styling and convenience desired in a knife that can be carried as an everyday companion. The drop point, semi skinning style blade is 3 5/8 inches long (93mm) and is made of ATS-34 stainless steel which is available in both a SpyderEdge® and Plain Edge, configuration. ATS-34 steel is universally recognized for its edge holding and taking capabilities. The blade features a cross-line texture along the top spine which allows for confident non-slip placement of the thumb while performing tough or intricate cutting chores, such as field dressing caping and skinning. Like all Spyderco CLIP-ITS, the SP48 possesses the Spyderco Trademark Round Hole, an identifiable symbol of Spyderco quality. The hole allows for ease in opening and closing one-handed even when hands are wet or slippery. A G-10 laminate handle is textured for a firm, sure grip and incorporates a visually inspectable locking liner and a lanyard hole at the base of the scale for added confidence when using around water or deep snow. At a suggested retail of $149.95 this Spyderco collaboration is an affordable addition to any folding knife collection. Perfectly suited for use in the great outdoors or indoors.

SP49 Wegner Jr.
Unfortunately, Spyderco has chosen to discontinue this smaller version.The Plain edge version is sold out and will not likely be available again and the combo edge is probably also sold out, so please call or e-mail for availability.
Rarely does a knife come into the KnifeCenter of the Internet that so impresses us. The Wegner Jr. is a small knife with a small thumb hole, but it seems the perfect carrying knife for most applications. The construction- like that of the full size model, is very solid and the design incorporating a stainless spacer between the handles, adds integrity to the knife. It feels solid with great action and useful design. This is a great knife. Some early ones are serial numbered.
