Since starting Spyderco we've been told our knives are different, peculiar--even out there. All true. Thinking beyond established knife industry barriers allowed us to introduce new and radical innovations to the knife culture including: one-hand opening, serrations on a folder, and a clip to attach a knife to a pocket. We didn't go into business to rake in a mountain of dough, we're here for more selfish reasons--indulging our passion for creating knives. Spyderco is definitely out of the norm in the knife industry in our dedication to researching and developing fresh, improved, and better performing materials--all with function and reliability being key.
