Specifically designed to conform to Danish knife laws, the new Pingo 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 Pingo's utilitarian N690Co blade has a modified sheepfoot profile and is mated to a textured orange FRN handle. The perfect socially friendly cutting tool, the Pingo was designed by noted custom knifemaker Jens Anso and Jesper Voxnas and is made for Spyderco in Italy.

The scales are molded with a grid patter that is grippy but doesn't tear up your skin. The length lets me get 2 1/2 fingers in front of the ledge. The pinky easily wraps over the large butt flare.
The pocket clip hits the scales on the smooth spider emblem, so no torn up pockets. It's the Spyderco famous/infamous paper clip affair. It is spartan, but functional.
There is a bit of jimping right behind the edge. It's a good place to rest you index finger or a warning sign you're about to hit the cutting edge. The blade shape is not conducive to stabbing, it has a sheepsfoot look to it, but includes a nice belly. The belly really helps the knife cut above its length. It has a full flat grind that thickens quickly to the spine.
The steel is N690Co. I have never had a knife made from it before, but I like it so far. It came with a toothy edge, but honed to a mirror polish with a little work. My only qualm is that the blade finish or the steel itself shows fingerprints like mad. More so than the high polish on my beloved Mora knives.
Overall a good little knife to ride in your watch pocket. Also a knife that can be carried (entirely in the pocket) in freedom hating places such as New York City. Would recommend.
Ps. Made some mods to mine. A little red dye and a thumb bar for Buck knives. It looks killer.
*In NYC you cannot have your knife displayed in any way, so remove the pocket clip and carry the Pingo loose in your pocket and it meets all requirements for knife length, type, lock back, and "gravity" opening. I'm not a lawyer, YMMV.
The BAD......I'm a lefty.....the pocket clip comes for a right handed person and the change for me was to unscrew the pin holding the wire pocket clip inplace and put it on the other side. well if you remove the pin the back spring stops working and getting it back in was for me.....a giant pain.....MY SUGGESTION......the pin and the screw separate them just enough with out removing the whole thing.....reassembly was not fun for me but I got it done......Other than that this is a two handed knife and excels at most cutting tasks where you would use a slip joint.
