Description
SP163POR: C163POR Orange Pingo
Spyderco
 
A collaborative effort of Danish knifemakers Jens Anso and Jesper Voxnaes, the Pingo was specifically designed to conform to the knife laws of Denmark, which prohibit both lock-blade folding knives and all forms of one-hand-opening knives.

The heart of the Pingo is its distinctive sheepfoot blade, which is ground from Böhler-Uddeholm’s premium N690Co stainless steel. The blade is designed to meet Danish legal length limits while still providing a very functional and versatile cutting tool. Its Trademark Round Hole clearly identifies it as a Spyderco knife and provides a handy purchase for two-handed opening, but the hole is purposely small to prevent one-handed blade-opening methods. Similarly, its stout notched-joint mechanism is powered by a strong spring that helps hold the blade securely in the open and closed positions, supporting its safe use as a cutting tool while precluding one-handed opening.

The Pingo’s handle is comprised of injection-molded orange fiberglass-reinforced-nylon (FRN) scales and a sturdy stainless steel back spacer. The scales feature a molded checkered texturing that ensures a secure grip without being too abrasive. A reversible deep-pocket wire clip provides both left and right-side tip-up carry, keeping the knife accessible for immediate use while blending unobtrusively with virtually any color of clothing.

Although designed to meet the unique needs of the Danish knife community, the Pingo’s versatile design and socially friendly demeanor make it a perfect choice for knife users everywhere. It not only transcends the limits of the traditional non-locking pocketknife, but also redefines Spyderco’s own definition of a SLIPIT because of its purposeful two-hand-opening design.

Brilliant Pingo
Great knife - thought it looked a bit ugly before I bought it, but I love it now. Feels comfortable in the hand when both closed and open. it has replaced my Dragonfly as my EDC.

Cons: None
Perfect travel knife!
I expect that TSA will be giving us back our right to carry knives on planes in the near future . . . they have done so once already, but the rescinded it just before it went into effect. When it happens, this will be the perfect knife to conform to their limitations. But I just love this knife for what it is, even if I never get to travel with it on airlines. I plan to carry it often.
