SP130GP: C130GP Chicago G-10

Laws. Whether necessary, good or just nutty, they’re intended to establish order and ward-o chaos. When our government and society implement rules we do our best to live within their parameters. As an example, many U.S. metropolitan cities draw the line for carrying pocketknives in public to knives with blades two-inches in length or under. Welcome to Chicago! If I were a Chicagoan and carried a pocketknife regularly, I might be inclined (as a law abiding citizen) to carry a tool falling under this city’s restriction. The Spyderco C130 Chicago is just that. Two-inches of at ground 440C blade urbanely outfitted with black G-10 handle scales and Michael Walker LinerLock®. The handle is shaped and sized ergonomically with full-length skeletonized liners inside for strength without bulk or weight. Its leaf-like shaped blade effectively cuts everything across the board, from significant strenuous cuts like carpet and poly rope to something as innocuous as fingernail cleaning or scraping tape o of glass. A deep pocket clip burrows the knife down into a pant’s pocket with the tip facing up ready to carry left- or right-handed. This one is for Chicagoans or anyone looking for a city/suit knife.

Well, Not my cup of tea..
My chicago was not as expected due to a quite blunt and uneven edge.. The size is great for smaller tasks as anyone would expect (if it was sharp) i do own a spyderco sharpening system but i dont like the idea of sharpening a new knife after unboxing it in order to use it.. The opening (whit my chicago) is still wery dull and to flick it out is not a smooth action. It's actually hard, atleast if u don't want to wave ur hand like a maniac.. Im sure this knife IS a good small EDC but my one was just made on a monday... This is the first Spyderco that i have a bad experience with and i have over a dozen of this super nice brand.

Pros: Lock Ease of Use, Pocket Clip, Handle Feel, Ease of Opening
Cons: None
Spyderco Chicago is almost great.
I support the use of a small blade 2" or less for everyday carry. Even though I no longer live in a city that limits knife size, I still continue to use the smaller blade. The smaller blade is not considered a weapon and, is manageable for daily use. The only drawback is Taiwan manufacture. Still the quality is acceptable. I do recommend the style, size and comfortable grip. Of all brands Spyderco is my preferred.

Great design -- But rough around the edges for Spyderco
Maybe the economy is hitting Spyderco but i've seen them turn out nicer knives at this $40 price point and lower. The ergonomics of this little Chicago knife are awesome for such a small piece -- exactly what you'd expect from Spyderco. BUT, it's the fit and finish that falls short. They've turned out better and cheaper products with the Ambitious -- and even the couple Byrd series i've gotten have been better. Take this with a grain of salt -- could be just the one i recieved but the action is not smooth and drags noticeably on the liner lock (been cleaned. The liners are not polished -- which isn't a big deal but they've done this on their lower end knives before and it adds that extra quality aspect that this one is missing. The lanyard tube rattles noticeably. The blade shape is great and sharp but had burnish marks that I haven't been able to fully get out. Again, i'm a huge Spyderco fan -- even love some of the Taiwan based products but this Chicago seems like it snuck past their normal standards. For $20, I'd be fine. For current price -- ehhh.
