Information from the Spyderco catalog on the web

The concept of the Junior folder comes from Romanian Technical Manager Alexandru Diaconescu. His young son was entering the curious-boy-years, ready and asking for his first pocketknife. The request brought-up normal parental questions and concerns regarding knife safety and usability motivating Dionescu to create a folder with a prominent guard (choil) behind the blade’s sharpened edge.

The guard maintains the hand in firm control over the blade while creating a block, effectively stopping fingers from sliding forward and connecting with the sharp edge. And it’s surprisingly comfortable in any sized hand- adult man, woman or juvenile. Position of the guard in the G-10 handle leaves little room for a locking mechanism and a Spyderco Compression Lock is added for its compact components and impressive strength.

Screw-together construction, an oversized lanyard hole and a deep pocket left- or right-handed tip-up wire clip further complement the handle. The VG-10 blade is ground full-flat and offered PlainEdged for the best available cutting performance with non-skid jimping located on top of the spine behind the Spyderco Round Hole.
