One of the Most Trusted Names in Cutlery
Founded in Golden, Colorado in 1978, Spyderco has become one of the most trusted names in America when it comes to cutlery. Started by Sal Glesser, the company began as a modest operation, beginning with only their Portable Hand, a specialized tool designed to help hobbyists work with small parts. As this spider-shaped tool gained popularity, Glesser was able to expand his operation and when the company officially began in 1978 he worked with knife sharpeners and produced his first folding knife, the CO1 Worker in 1981. From there, the company has exploded, working with over 20 different materials to produce all variety of tools designed from everyday knife carry to more specialized applications for working professionals.
Latest Products Developed
Though they continually develop new products, one of the more innovative designed released recently is the Dog Tag Folder. Made from premium CPM S30V stainless steel, this gets its name from the dog tag appearance and small size. It’s blade measures only 1.23” but provides a great precision cutting tool when you need it. Alternatively, the new Squarehead Folder features a slightly longer (1.3”) flat-topped blade made from the same material. Designed by and for electrical engineers, it offer unique performance.

A Wide Assortment of Knives
Going through all of Spyderco’s many products would be an exercise in futility. Instead, it is important to consider some of the more popular and innovative designs that they offer. Among those, the Endura is certainly worth mentioning. As with many of the other models, this folding knife comes available with a variety of options to help make it more versatile.
