Utility Knife 4.5″ Black


Spyderco’s involvement in kitchen knives traces back to the early 1980s when they first ventured into knife production. Although these kitchen knives were discontinued for some time, they have made a triumphant return due to popular demand and are now better than ever. Our current line of kitchen knives retains all the distinctive features of the original models while incorporating an upgraded handle material that ensures enhanced durability.

Among our impressive selection, the K05 Utility Knife stands out with its 4.48-inch drop-point blade, striking an ideal balance between control and cutting performance. This versatility makes it well-suited for a wide range of kitchen cutting tasks and utility applications. Similar to its predecessor, it boasts a premium MBS-26 stainless steel blade, expertly ground to a thin edge and meticulously heat treated to optimize edge retention. The knife’s robust polypropylene plastic handle is directly injection molded onto the blade’s tang and showcases a unique “stepped” texture pattern, providing exceptional comfort and control during use.

For the K05 model, we offer a sleek black handle paired with a PlainEdge blade, which boasts a smooth, continuous cutting edge without serrations. This configuration allows for precise, clean cuts. The SpyderEdge blade with its two-step serration pattern, designed to protect the edge from dulling on cutting boards, is available exclusively with a black handle. Additionally, we also offer the SpyderEdge version with a vibrant red handle.

Experience the superior craftsmanship and unparalleled performance of the K05 Utility Knife, available with a plain edge for those seeking precision and control in their kitchen endeavors.
