Laws. Whether necessary, good, or just nutty, they are intended to establish order and ward-off chaos. When our government and society put in force rules we do our best to live within their parameters. For instance, many U.S. metropolitan cities draw the line for carrying pocketknives in public to knives with blades two-inches in length or under. Welcome to Chicago! If I were a Chicagoan and carried a pocketknife frequently, I may well be inclined (as a law abiding citizen) to carry a tool falling under this city’s restriction. The Spyderco C130G Chicago is just that. Two-inches of flat ground 440C blade urbanely outfitted with black G-10 maintain scales and Michael Walker LinerLock. The maintain is shaped and sized ergonomically with full-length skeletonized liners inside for strength without bulk or weight. Its leaf-like shaped blade effectively cuts across the board, from significant strenuous cuts like carpet and poly rope to something so simple as fingernail cleaning or scraping tape off of glass. A deep pocket clip burrows the knife down into a pant’s pocket with the tip facing up able to carry left- or right-handed. This one is for Chicagoans or any individual searching for a city/suit knife.
