Product Description

The Spyderco Poliwog is an unorthodox folding knife that provides big-knife cutting performance in an incredibly compact and convenient package. The Poliwog’s G-10 handle houses Spyderco’s open-ended Ball Bearing Lock--one of the strongest folding knife locks in existence. In the open position, a spring-loaded ball bearing drives forward to securely lock the blade open. Pulling the bearing back closes the knife and is easily accomplished with either hand, making this knife completely ambidextrous and -Inch lefty-friendly. -Inch The lock mechanism is also fully exposed for effortless operation and easy cleaning. In the open position, the profile of the Poliwog's VG-10 stainless steel blade flows into the curves of the handle to provide an exceptionally comfortable and controllable grip. A reversible deep-pocket wire clip provides the option of left or right-side tip-up carry.

Dearest Polly,

I'm sorry I lost you while snowboarding in Aspen. You cut my apples, you opened my boxes, and you scared my coworkers. Damn.

If only spyderco would make you again in G10...what I would pay to have your perfect hollow ground seki city VG 10 blade again.

Spyderco please, bring back my Polly. Even Sage, Chicago, Dragon, and Citizen miss you.

If you've ever held a poliwog you'd know that they have great ergonomics, razor sharp blades and just fit well in your hand. The poliwog is no exception. While many will find this knife to be hideous you will completely change your mind. The ball lock functions wonderfully, the blade opens quick and is razor sharp and the blade fits in your hand like a glove

I've always like Spyderco's weird designs; there's something about them that makes them ugly and gorgeous at the same time. The Poliwog is no exception... it's very different from most knives on the market, and while it is quite strange-looking, it also has an aesthetic appeal - especially when opened. While it does look pretty sweet, it's real claim to fame (another trait it shares with most other Spydercos) is that it works perfectly in the role for which it was designed. The tiny blade (less than 2 inches of cutting length) is actually more than enough to conquer most cutting tasks (especially when it comes sharp enough to shave hair, and since it's VG-10 it'll stay that way for a while) and the handle is about as close to ergonomically perfect as you can get in a knife of this size. pretty much any way you grip it feels secure and natural. The handle material is G-10, enough said. No liners, but none really needed in a knife this small, it's plenty stiff. Speaking of stiff... this knife locks up better than most. There is really no discernible play in the blade on any axis, and the locking mechanism (while a little strange) is not only mechanically cool but also very easy to use. So: Great overall design, good blade steel and shape (would have liked a full flat-grind, but this works too), solid lock, secure handle made from good materials... pretty nice little knife. I only have two complaints, and one might go away with time; this being that the pocket clip is so strong and the handle so grippy and thin that it can be really annoying to get out of your pocket; definitely not on the fast deployment side. Again, as the clip and handle get broken in, this might change. What will not change is the width of the knife when closed.Read more ›

This is a wonderful knife; sharp out of the box. The G10 material provides a comfortable non-slip surface. The design is unusual and I love it personally. The product has been discontinued so get them before they're gone! I love the locking mechanism; truly elegant. Some may say it's a gimmick. They're entitled to their opinion. You either love this knife or you don't; I DO! You might take a moment and think about the Spyderco Dodo, a similar knife that now goes for $250, IF you can find one! This piece is destined to be a Spyderco greatness!

FYI: JUST BOUGHT A 2ND ONE in case I lose the 1st, since it's been discontinued. THAT IS HOW MUCH I LIKE THIS KNIFE! Spyderco Poliwog G-10 Plain Edge Knife, Black

This knife is right on the boundary between a small and medium sized folder. It feels larger than you would think after viewing the photos. Very comfortable in hand with the nicely shaped handle. The bearing mechanism provides a solid lockup and it's also easy to disengage the lock. Good VG-10 blade with a cool looking grind. Fairly large when folded but it wasn't a problem for me. Mine came very sharp and the shape of the blade makes it easy to touch up.
