Spyderco Kiwi C75PRB

The Kiwi is a standard production Spyderco model intended to appeal to those who favour the more traditional appearance of a slip joint pocket knife, but want the convenience of one hand opening and the added security of a lock.

Although its model numbers bear a C prefix, it lacks the clip common to almost all other models. It also lacks the "hump" in the blade common to most of Spyderco's "in house" designs. Instead, the Spyder hole opener is contained within the narrower modified ‘Wharncliffe’ pattern blade.

The C75PRB Has stainless steel bolsters with Smooth Red Bone scales, the blade is hollow ground. It is a Sal Glesser design and appeared in the Spyderco catalogues from 2003 but was actually produced from 2002.

The following info has been transposed from the Spyderco web catalogue and is specifically from the page showing the first version of the Kiwi to be released.

"Scores of knife nuts have asked "why doesn't Spyderco make a conventional folder like an old time jack-knife or penknife?"  We have. Our traditional-influenced offering is the Kiwi and it reflects features found on Grandfather's favourite whittler while remaining true to Spyderco's preference for high-tech materials and ergonomics.

Its two-inch VG-10 blade has a Wharncliffe profile and pronounced hump created to accommodate the Spyderco Round Hole. Position of the hole on the blade is important (especially for smaller knives) in finding the spot with the most comfortable/natural pivotal rotation when opening one-handed. Dual finger choils cutaway on the underbelly of the handle deposit the fore- and middle fingers in alignment for optimal control. Amber-coloured jig bone scales* set next to brushed stainless bolsters are reminiscent of more traditional cutlery. In the manner of a true gent's folder, it is clipless."

  • Red Bone Scales on this Version.

This is a Pre-Owned knife from a Private Collection and has no sign of use or sharpening, it comes with the original box, The Red Bone scales have natural markings - see photos for detail.
