Ths SPD X-11 is a very compact, yet highly capable cutting tool. Barely over 8 grams in weight, smaller in diameter than a AAA battery and about as long as your pinky finger.
At PDW, we have a strong affinity for titanium billet and machining them into useful, everyday carry tools and objects. The SPD X-11 is a precision made tool to EDC. #hikebikecampshootridedive
Using the latest fabrication techniques, we were able to construct the handle out of a solid piece of titanium billet, creating a unibody cutting tool. Despite it's very compact size, smart details characterize the design which features four preset blade positions and carefully consider ergonomics.
We use the best grade in materials in the making of our X-11. From 6AL-4V grade-5 titanium billet, to the brightest strontium aluminate cabochon button inlay, PDW is uncompromising in quality of make. The practical use of the replaceable, readily available no.11 utility blades was a smart decision to have an off the shelf supply of razor sharp blades at your disposal.
As with just about all of our EDC tools and items, we include a presentation box, that is simple, yet elegant and practical. Our tin boxes are completely reusable for storing odds and ends, fire making supplies, a DIY sewing kit and more.
Making the X-11 literally required some fresh angles in fabrication methods. It was a challenging and ultimately satisfying exercise to achieve a unibody construction that we were after, as well as the whole process to miniaturize the entire cutting tool was befitting of our SPD classification.
This is a handy little blade to let do most of your simple cutting chores. I love the utility and practicality and most importantly the size. Would love to know what brand #11 blade it shipped with. I ordered a box of American Line #11 and they do not fit. Just a hair too wide at the bottom
I have large hand and having difficulty using.
Hi Ahn, yes it IS a very little knife. That was the whole point. Cheers.
