Only one edge image is available for each style, but multiple edge types are available to purchase from. Reasons we offer smaller knives are numerous but essentially people's hands come in different sizes and we occasionally find ourselves in social situations that dictate use of a smaller blade. Many think smaller versions of the same model are simply shrunk down. Not so. For every design to reach its utmost level of ergonomic comfort and maximum performance we often take features and engineer/rework them into a more diminutive pattern. An example is our 79mm version of the Rescue Model. A smaller equivalent of the C14 93mm Rescue, it too has a flat saber-ground, SpyderEdge, VG-10blade that ends in a sheepfoot safety tip. For smoother thumb rotation we enlarged the Spyderco Trademark Round Hole, which in turn creates a prominent hump to position the thumb on while cutting. The FRN waffle textured handle is available in indigo blue, black and safety orange with an ambidextrous, tip-up pocket clip.

Spyderco's Rescue Spyderedge Jr. Knife is pointless. Actually many folks prefer a rounded (rescue) blade tip as it means no accidental poking piercing or puncturing when cutting in proximity to people, animals, or inflatable watercraft. It's safer in emergency situations when adrenaline rules so it's the tool of choice for emergency medical technicians, rescue providers and livestock handlers. The Spyderedge blade consists of two step serration patterns consisting of one large and two small serrations. The pattern increases the cutting edges surface area by up to 24%. The Jr size Rescue offers an option for smaller hands.
