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.
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.
I wouldn't pay full price for one, but they are neat knives
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.Read more ›
