Re-designed from the clip up to achieve utmost ergonomic comfort and performance in a small knife.
Spyderco was the first company to fuse the traditional sheepfoot blade profile with an aggressive serrated edge to create the modern “rescue knife.” A blunted point allows non-puncturing use in close proximity to accident victims, livestock, inflatable rafts, and flotation devices. Spyderco’s distinctive serration pattern is unequaled in cutting performance on seat belts, webbing, rope, and other fibrous materials.

Reasons Spyderco offers smaller knives are numerous but essentially people's hands come in different sizes and we occasionally find ourselves in social situations that dictate use of a smaller blade. Many think smaller versions of the same model are simply shrunk down. Not so. For every design to reach its utmost level of ergonomic comfort and maximum performance Spyderco often takes features and engineer/rework them into a more diminutive pattern.
The Rescue 73mm has a flat saber-ground, SpyderEdge, VG-10 blade that ends in a sheepfoot safety tip. For smoother thumb rotation they enlarged the Spyderco Trademark Round Hole, which in turn creates a prominent hump to position the thumb on while cutting. The FRN waffle textured handle features an ambidextrous, tip-up pocket clip.
