Designed by British knifemaker Mike Read and named after his Internet forum moniker “Pie in the Sky,” the Spyderco PITS was a truly unique non-locking folding knife. Its precision-machined solid titanium scales featured integral spring arms joined by a hardened pin. The pressure of this mechanism stabilized the knife’s blade in the open position and was reinforced by the user’s grip.
This limited-edition Sprint Run resurrection of the PITS showcases a full-flat ground blade crafted from Böhler-Uddeholm M390 particle metallurgy stainless steel. This high-performance alloy offers very high wear and corrosion resistance yet remains extremely easy to sharpen. Both the blade and handle of this remarkable knife feature handsome stonewashed finishes, and a reversible deep-pocket carry clip provides a choice of left or right-side tip-up carry.
