Spyderco co-founder Sal Glesser designed the lightweight, mid-sized RockJumper™ to fit the needs of outdoor enthusiasts and climbers. Based on the success of that popular model and feedback from its devoted users, Sal went back to the drawing board and created the LeafJumper. The LeafJumper features the same ergonomic handle design as its cousin, including its skeletonized stainless steel liners, fiberglass-reinforced-nylon (FRN) scales, non-slip Bi-Directional Texturing, four-position pocket clip, stout back lock mechanism, and positive self-close function. Its VG-10 stainless steel blade also has a minimal ricasso (the unbeveled, full-thickness area nearest the handle) to offer the maximum edge length. What sets the LeafJumper apart, however, is its leaf-shaped blade. Full-flat ground, satin finished, and available in PlainEdge and SpyderEdge formats, it features a slightly upswept edge profile that raises and reinforces its point, increasing its versatility for many applications.
