Product Description

Why do knife companies apply animal-like names and descriptions to their knives?  In our defense, the Spyderco round hole and super sharp edge are reminiscent of eyes and claws. Think cats. Cats represent a highly developed level of predatory resourcefulness, sleek sharp claws and efficiency.  Our C129G Cat CLIPIT has a leaf-shaped 440C blade just under two-and-a-half inches in length that is flat-ground for hair popping sharpness. Our cat is unique. We aimed for a high pinnacle of cutting adeptness but demanded it be polished and sophisticated in appearance.  So, we combined cat-claw sharpness with a G-10 handle and Michael Walker LinerLock.  The black G-10 handle is shaped and sized ergonomically with full-length skeletonized liners inside for strength without bulky weight.  A deep silhouette wire clip burrows the knife down deeply in a pant's pocket with the tip facing up ready to carry left- or right-handed.  We believe the name is appropriate and think you might too.

I never used to be a knife-carrying guy. That changed when I spent some time in South Africa, but not for the reasons you'd expect.

I was given an all-black, all-metal Gerber folding knife as a gift from the manliest man in South Africa. When I returned to the States, I stuck it in my pocket, partially in his honor, and partially because it seemed like it might come in handy from time to time. Boy, did it! Within a day or two I had mastered the relatively simple art of pushing the blade out a bit with the thumb stud, then snapping my wrist to make the blade fly out and lock open with a satisfying sschhCLIK! Man, that was nice.

And the cutting! You know the old adage that when you have a hammer, everything looks like a nail? Well, when you carry a knife, you realize just how much you always needed one. Frustrating packaging? Knife. Need to cut off some herbs for dinner? Knife. Boxes won't fit in the recycling bin? Knife. Knife, knife, knife.

Unfortunately, the Gerber wasn't terribly well made. It was assembled with a half-dozen tiny, tiny Torx screws. And, in the space of two months, every single one of those screws completely unscrewed itself and fell out into my pocket. I was constantly losing screws and repairing it. The thing was heavy, too, and took up too much pocket space. And finally, it was so big that it made my gentle co-workers jump every time I opened the blade. No good.

So I put the Gerber away and set out on the search for the Perfect EDC, and this knife, the Spyderco Cat, is the knife I settled on.

Some might think of the Cat as a knife of compromise. It seems awkwardly positioned. It's sort of too big and curvy to be a "gentleman's" knife, but it's also too small to handle the demands of the heavy knife user.

It appears everyone who writes a review knows how to make a knife from scratch. They are experts on "blade grinds" & "centered blades" because they have watched a few reviews on YouTube.

I am not an expert. I own a Tenacious, Ambitious, Chicago had a Bug once & lost it, & i own this knife. (And a few Kershaws & Bucks, but I won't compare brands.)

I am a father of 3 little girls & a white collared business man who keeps a knife in his back pocket as a daily tool. I do not want people to feel intimidated when I pull out a knife, so I do not go for any other maker besides these 3 brands due to the designs.

The different Spyderco knives I own serve a different purpose, and they are as follows...

Tenacious - beefier blade good for yard work, construction projects, or day hike.
Ambitious - same as the Tenacious just smaller. The cheaper steel makes these knives more of a utility knife in my opinion.
Chicago - 2" blade. It's like the Cat, only it has a 2" blade. So that you do not get arrested in places where you cannot have over a 2" blade. I carry it often.
Cat - at about a 2 1/2" blade, I find this thing perfect as an EDC. Not too big, not too small.

The 440 steel keeps an edge a little longer than the Tenacious & Ambitious. One thing to keep in mind with these leaf shape blades is the longer you go on the blade, the larger the blade gets on every dimension. If I carry my Chicago or Cat for a week & switch to the Tenacious for some reason, I feel like it's a broadsword in comparison.

Overall, I like this knife for my daily dad uses...

This is the perfect pocket knife, imo, especially when cost is considered.

It's a G10 linerlock with really, really good "budget" steel (440C - apparently used to be considered a 'supersteel'), a perfect blade length for pocket carry, a great pocket clip, bushings for ease of opening, the blade is full flat ground - and as thin as the Delica design (and thinner than budget line Spydercos), and it has a flow through handle design. Also, it's very light-weight. All this for just a little over $40 dollars, and you have a knife that in my opinion, blows the tenacious/persistance/ambitious line out of the water, even for the nominal additional cost, as well as outclasses the Delica and similarly designed FRN knives, even if the Cat's price was raised to compete in that range. As a matter of fact, I purchased a Delica at the same time as I did this knife, and it's not even a decision to send back the Delica.

Once you are used to the ease of opening that bushings/washers provide (as I experienced owning the Gayle Bradley), it's very difficult to downgrade to knives, like the Delica, that lack these elements. Without them, the knife just doesn't open very easily when using the spyder-hole, and it feels less like a piece of craftsmanship and design and more like a wedge of sharp metal jammed into a plastic handle. This knife, the Spyderco Cat, falls into the former category and is apparently an underrated blade, judging by the few reviews and sales rank that it currently enjoys here on amazon. In addition, I have to again comment that the blade length, of approximately 2.5 inches, fills a size niche that not many other Spyderco knives currently do. For instance, to harp on the Delica again, it's 2.
