The Squeak SLIPIT is a Spyderco non-locking one-hand open, clip carry folder called a SLIPIT. It’s designed for legally-restricted carry in locales where locking folders are prohibited. The blade is ground full-flat and made from N690Co steel. N690C0 is high-carbon steel with added cobalt for structural uniformity resulting in enhanced edge retentio. Textured jimping is machined from the blade’s spine and choil for increased slip resistance. The Squeak’s blade is held in the open position when cutting by a notched-joint at the knife’s pivot. When closing the blade, the notch generates resistance functionally similar to traditional slip-joint penknife and performs the additional function of smoothing the motion of the blade opening. Spyderco designers added a deep finger choil, naturally jogging the index finger into a position on the underside of the blade directly below the thumb for control. The handle is FRN (fiberglass reinforced nylon) and engineered for user comfort.
