SP178GP: C178GP Kiwi 4
Ahhhh… love that new Spyderco smell! One of the things that makes Spyderco so much fun to carry and collect is that they evolve their patterns over the years instead of just replacing them. Say hello to the 4th generation Kiwi!
The Kiwi has long been one of Spyderco’s most popular and enduring designs, but its latest incarnation takes this practical tool to new heights. The Kiwi 4 is upsized to fit larger hands and it features textured black G-10 scales that complement its unique double finger choil to provide a superbly secure grip. The VG-10 stainless steel blade’s full-flat grind produces incredible edge geometry for friction-free cutting, while its sturdy back lock mechanism, full liners, and solid stainless steel back spacer command ample strength. A reversible deep-pocket wire clip offers low-profile tip-up carry on either side of the body.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Lock Type, Handle Material, Overall Quality, Pocket Clip, Ease of Opening, Handle Feel, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Material
Cons: None
Great pocket knife
This is my EDC pocket knife. Good blade steel, thin blade, and NO choil. The handle design is very comfortable, and the handle keeps the fingers away from the sharp blade. I do electronic work, and the blade style is great for stripping plastic and rubber insulation from cables. Closed length fits well in the bottom of my cargo pants pocket. Great blade lock. Love the Spyder hole for opening. I purchased several more because I liked the knife so much.

Cons: None
Better than expected
I was expecting a larger version of my previous Kiwi, and that is what I got. However, what I did not fully expect was that the modest increase in size would provide not only a much more ergonomic and usable Kiwi, but one which was almost as light as my smaller one. I don't know how Spyderco did it, but it made a larger, more usable Kiwi at almost the same weight. Quite an achievement.
