Spyderco Rookie 3″ VG10 Blade with Green G10 Handle
We have always liked the Spyderco Rookie. It is Spyderco’s attempt to offer a Police style knife in a smaller size. It’s a much smaller knife with a 3″ slender blade. This incarnation has a single liner to the foliage green G10 handle.
Here is Spyderco’s information:
The SP51 Rookie hit the streets in 1998 as a “mini-sized” version of the original Spyderco Police Model developed for those who prefer to carry a smaller knife. The 2008 Sprint Run Rookie has a hollow ground, clip point style blade available in a PlainEdge with a VG-10 stainless steel blade. The handle is foliage green G-10 with a right-hand tip-up clip. The Rookie packs incredible cutting power in a comfortable, smaller-sized folder. The Rookie’s handle and blade are nearly equal in length giving the knife an overall balanced feeling.
