Product Description

Specifically designed to conform to Danish knife laws, the new Pinto is a purpose-designed two-hand-opening SLIPIT. Like a SLIPIT, it features a reversible wire clothing clip and a Trademark Round Hole; however, the blade hole does not allow the knife to be opened one handed. Instead, it provides a user-friendly alternative to a nail nick for two-handed operation. The Pinto's utilitarian N690Co blade has a modified sheep foot profile and is mated to a textured black FRN handle. The perfect socially friendly cutting tool, the Pinto was designed by noted custom knife maker Jens Anson and Jasper Vons and is made for Spiders in Italy.

I have three of these. N890 is a fine steel, I believe slightly better than the VG-10 Spyderco mostly uses.
It sharpens and polishes easier than VG-10, and, in my experience, holds an edge a little better too. And I have yet to stain it.
I have had several nice folders from Italy, From Benchmade to Fox, with this steel. It's never disappointed me.
I have modified all three. The small Spydy hole is useless for opening the knife. However, you can buy thumbstuds (hole is 3/16" .1875") that makes this a true one hand opener. Look over at Knife Kits. I have to file just a touch off the flats to get it to tighten, but they fit perfect. A little Blue Loc-Tite and I have never had one come loose.
I have an orange version of the Pingo that I installed the thumbstud onto, but otherwise, left it stock.
I have two Black FRN's. One I put a set of Carbon Fiber with Red GH-10 liners on, and a designer pivot, no clip. One that I put a set of Toxic Green G-10 with Black G-10 liners. Milled a cutout for a small Spyderco pocket clip so one screw would hold it tight. Decided not to use the wire clip just because I wanted this different than stock. Then used a designer pivot, NO thumbstud.
I am making Kydex neck sheaths (just to have. I make Kydex sheaths for all my smaller knives).
With the thumbstud, these are near perfect small folders, slip joint or not. Open and close, with one hand.
Light, great steel, and excellent blade shape for EDC, what's not to like.

Overall the knife is really well made. Fit and finish is really good.
As far as sharpness goes, out of the box the blade was ok. A few passes on a sharpening rod should fix that real quick.

The locking mechanism is pretty stiff. Which is nice considering it's a slip joint style knife.
Once opened it takes a good bit of pressure to close it. A bit more than my SAK Hunter.
There is also a halfway detent point at the 90 degree point. So that gives you added security in case the blade does close accidentally.

Just be aware that this is a SMALL knife. Don't expect something like a UKPK. This will definitely become part of my EDC rotation.

The Spyderco Pingo is one of the nicest utility edc knives that I've ever used. Extremely sharp and not scary looking to other people at all. Please note that this is a two handed opener and does not lock, I was aware of this and for utility tasks I didn't really want to scare people when I opened the knife. It does have 2 stops in the pivot mechanism, one when fully open and halfway closed which gives all the reassurance you need when you use it. I also like the gimping on the ricasso that gives that extra bit of control. Great clip too.

I'm really impressed with this knife. Feels good in my hand. The blade shape makes cutting through packaging easy. The clip is nice too, its flexible enough to clip on to things easily, but sturdy enough not to bend. Excellent little EDC.

The Pingo is an odd duck. It was designed for use in areas with restrictions on pocket knives so I understand. It is a great slicer/chopper with great steel, but it isn't a one handed knife....unless you add a thumbstud. But if you add a stud, it makes it awkward to pull in and out of your pocket if you clip it to your pants.

I wouldn't pay full price for one, but they are neat knives

"I don't live in Denmark, so why would I want a knife that doesn't include all the things that make Spyderco knives so great?". That's what I thought when I unwrapped the Pingo that my wife gave me. My next thought was "How can I return this and get something with a lock and one-handed opening?".

I'm so glad I didn't do that. The knife itself is just great. The blade has lots of belly, and a nice full flat grind. It's a terrific slicer, even better than my Dragonfly 2. The blade steel is excellent, noticeably better than VG-10 or AUS8, and it's held an edge even after rough usage. And the ergonomics are outstanding. Kudos to Mr. Anso for a very well-designed knife!

So what about the lock? Well, I think a lock is critical in a tactical setting: you don't want the blade coming closed on your hand if you're in a fight. But that's not really relevant to me. I use my knives as tools, and I'm more than capable of using my knife in a manner that keeps the blade open. Heck, I carried Barlows and Swiss Army knives for years, and never had an incident. I think you could argue that in some ways the Pingo is actually safer than knives that use liner or frame locks, since those locks place your hand directly in the blade path every time you close the knife. The Pingo's blade firmly snaps into place, and it's easy to safely close this knife with one hand. So I don't miss the lock at all.

And opening? Well, it's still a Spyderco, so it's got a tiny hole in the blade that just happens to be in the perfect spot to add a zip tie. That zip tie allows very convenient one-hand opening, or even wave-type opening if you're into that sort of thing.
