Spot is Spyderco's inaugural offering to the neck knife market. Designed by Sal Glesser, its shape and size are inspired by the French knife designer Fred Perrin. The Spot is a striking accessory. A palm-sized all-steel fixed-blade with a skeletally cut-out handle, it can be categorized as a dynamically functional unisex tool for men and women alike.

Unique to the model is the index finger hole, a Perrin feature. Placing the index finger through the hole and gripping the angled handle situates the thumb atop the black coated blade's spine for precise cutting control. Curved into a reverse S-shape, the blade slices like a demon and is ground to an incisor-like tip for craft projects and other meticulous cutting jobs. Graduating-sized holes are dremmeled out of the blade lessening overall weight and adding to its 'spotty' appearance. The FB08 Spot is made entirely of AUS-6 stainless steel. Since it's made of a solid piece of stainless steel, the Spot has no moving parts to catch, break, or wear-out over time. Combined with a lightweight Boltaron neck sheath, the sheath/knife combination carry discreetly and confidently flat under clothing or workout gear hanging by a 30-inch ball chain covered in 20 lb. breakaway black paracord.
