The Spyderco Lil' Sub-Hilt is a smaller version of the original design featuring the same superb fit and finish.

Butch Vallotton, like most knifemakers, started making knives as a hobby, had to start selling knives to pay for his hobby and before he knew it became a professional fulltime knifemaker in 1984 with a waiting list of customers at the age of thirty. A self-proclaimed gadget freak, a good part of his business comes from automatic knives and he is credited with inventing the ambidextrous blade thumb stud.

A long time fan of Italian-style, heavy-stock folders the Sub-Hilt bears an international flavor with a modified coffin-shaped handle of polished black G-10 with tongue-and-groove fitted stainless bolsters. Further complementing the handle is a Michael Walker LinerLock® a four-way: tip-up/tip-down, right- or left-handed steel clip and screw-together scale construction.

Perfectly Overbuilt
Ben B.
Just bought my Lil Sub Hilt last week. I love variety in my EDC rotation however we all have our “wants and needs” when adding to our collections. Over the years I have tried to fall in love with the traditional Spyderco style; in-terms of looks alone. I’m certainly not questioning the quality of the product. We like what we like, and the look of a knife is half of the reason I buy it. For that reason, the Lil Sub Hilt is my 1st Spyderco. Lil Sub Hilt bends their traditional lines right in my direction. Enough about that, let’s just say I can’t quit looking at it; it truly is beautiful. The fit and finish—and the way this knife falls in place is second to none. Certainly a heavy, overbuilt frame. Almost too heavy for my typical EDC; the smooth grip goes against most every day practical application— however I can’t set it down. When snapping it into the open position it slams with an authoritative concussion that I feel all through my arm. Sharper than expected out of the box; if you’re looking for practicality swipe left however if you’re looking to add something different and frankly beautiful; you won’t miss the 200 bucks.
