Original CLIPIT® knives from the early 1980s, set side-by-side against new models, reveal a definite trend in Spyderco's design history, the leaf-shape blade. It has emerged as a CLIPIT signature due to the blade shape which has proven it functions efficiently in nearly all cutting applications, while offering enough breadth-of-blade to accommodate the Spyderco Round Hole.
Requests for a super-sized Spyderco leaf-shaped blade keep coming and in response, the new SuperLeaf fills the order with its broad VG-10 PlainEdge flat-ground blade and black G-10 handle.
Located at the blade's spine and choil is jimping (texturing) which works in conjunction with an expanded pommel on the handle, coordinating grip on the handle and dexterous control over the sharpened edge while cutting. Tucked inside the scales is a Compression Lock® locking mechanism, skeletonized full liners, a piped lanyard hole, and a secure-attachment left/right-hand, tip-up wire clip.
Pretty may be an option. Sharpness and performance are not, making it a positive attribute that the SuperLeaf has both.
