Today, we’ll take a look at a beautifully made knife that I deeply don’t get: The Spyderco PPT
Author: Nick Shabazz
Great Googly Moogly, Nick, keep the Patreon on a leash.
ok that’s it on the freakin stuttering
Lil bitch hands dont like hedgehogs? Bro, seriously.
Nick you’re just pretending you can’t spydie-flick it so we don’t think you have lil bitch hands…I see right through you Mr. Shabazz
The pocket clip feels like it will break from day one
i have a ppt, love the look, hate the handle. also i hate the feeling of the clip scooting around in my hand when i hold on to the knife
I’m not exactly sure why but I really like the look of that knife… hmm… oh well another knife for the wishlist…
Arghh, what a weight, if it is supposed to be some kind of tactical knife, go for length as most sane alive practicionars say, dumpy dont do, for me. 710 is same weight, I think, no comparison.
Good work knife got plenty of cheap for that, not enough style Spydy, love my PM2 and my Delica, my most carried knife is the Byrd version of the Wonderful Endura, got a special one of them in Damascus, for the show. This knife doesn’t float my boat, Nick. Keep on trucking on Spydy, always something for somebody, with a bit of thought put in the process.
The liners and back spacer are actually steel, that’s why it’s so heavy. I understand why you don’t like it, but I’ve got one and I can’t explain why but I love it.
Same weight as the chinese Resilient, wonderful knife, Spydy did a great thing for poor people like me and brought the bit of good engineering cheap enough to afford good knives to us punters. Special stuff is obssesion,CRK 21s, etc. Sometimes a knife, is just not a knife?
This reminds me far too much of the CRKT Wrinkle for me to find it remotely attractive.
Had one and sold it. Great knife, just didn’t fit my preferences. The scales look odd but are fantastically well milled. End of the clip was not great for me. Too pointy and caught on everything. Lock bar is needlessly tall, knife needlessly heavy. But fit and finish were stellar. Amazingly good production knife.
That handle would be at home floating in my toilet.
Design is too weird for the room, imo. Worth a look, but a definite pass.
I agree a nice blade but the handle needs to go. I like the shape of the pocket clip.
The handle finish/texture looks interesting not sure I would like it, but I would like to feel it.
Noice!! i actually like the look of that Syperco.
it reminds me of the Kim Ning designed Kizer knives.
It’s like a caveman made a knife out of petrified poopie. It’s quite literally crap. Not sure what they were thinking with this one.
Always disappoints me when Spyderco recede back to right handed only when so many of their knives are ambidextrous. On the other hand the PPT looks like a turd and seems aimed at mall ninjas, so no big loss.
Love the blade shape. Where I live it’s bullet proof vest and running shoes.
The ppt always reminded me of the 746
That blade shape is sweet. I wish they did a more EDC style handle though
To me it feels more utilitarian. I’m not sure either
seems more utilitarian than martial to me…
The liner lock being very proud adds to the security of the lock. Your fingers wrap around and really put positive pressure on the lock. Most frame locks claim to do this but don’t really add much in the way of security. This is a self defense knife. Fred Perrin is a fucking stick fighter! Not meant to be comfortable per say, just secure. It is meant to be held in the Philippine grip like the yojimbo.
Reverse grip potato chip bag opening
Thanks for the review Nick, loved it, absolutely.
Just a heads up, its not made of titanium.
Hey Nick, how do you not get finger prints all over the blade when you’re opening/closing/handling it? Have you figured out how to cancel out your finger oils?
Spyderco pushing their pro-lanyard agenda. When will it end?!?
It is stainless steel…Not titanium…..
I think the clip/back-spacer/frame are all steel, not titanium.
