A smaller, more gentlemanly expression of Finnish knifemaker Pekka Tuominen’s acclaimed Nilakka folding knife, the Lil’ Nilakka features a breathtakingly sharp blade precision machined from premium RWL 34 stainless steel. In the Lil’ Nilakka, this advanced alloy is shaped to replicate the dramatic “zero-ground” geometry of the classic puukko with a full-flat grind that terminates in an almost imperceptible microbevel. The Lil’ Nilakka’s blade nests deeply in a handle constructed with full stainless steel liners, a stainless backspacer, and smooth matte ivory G-10 scales. The liners form the foundation of the knife’s sturdy LinerLock mechanism, which locks the blade securely open during use. A deep recess in the front scale allows right-handed access to the blade’s Round Hole when the knife is closed and easy operation of the lock release when open. To ensure immediate access, the handle also features a deep-pocket wire pocket clip configured for convenient right-side, tip-up carry. In addition to all its other impressive qualities, the Lil’ Nilakka is also historically significant as it represents Spyderco’s very first “flash batch” product—a distinctive, one-time-only expression of a brand new design.
