Spyderco is an American company, that produces knives and care products for them. It was founded in 1978 by Sal Glesser.
Among the company’s products the best known ones are folding knives for easy opening with one hand and with a round hole in the blade. The company issued a US patent for this round hole in the blade, and later achieved recognition of its trademark. Now other manufacturers are forced to either buy the rights to it, or change its shape. Blade with a circular hole became the “hallmark” of Spyderco products. For its time, the appearance of these knives was revolutionary: “one-handed” opening, using the blade locking mechanisms, the presence of serrated models, clip to fasten the knife on the clothes, the use of advanced steel and handle materials soon brought the popularity to Spyderco products. Today it is one of the most famous manufacturers of knives in the world.
In 1990, Spayderko shocked the blade market, releasing two models of knives, which became legends: Spyderco Endura and Spyderco Delica. Anyone can afford himself these knives, and their simplicity and assembly quality became a powerful argument in favor of them to become one of the most popular models in the world.
Currently the company produces 180 varieties of knives, including knives with a fixed blade, folding knives and kitchen ones. Prior to 2008, all models of weapons produced exclusively in the US or Japan, but then part of the production capacity nevertheless has been moved to China.
One of the reasons why knives Spyderco gained popularity all around the world is relentless attempts employees to improve the products they offer to customers. Constantly testing new models of steel and other materials that knives will be made of there are permanent attempts to improve the ergonomics of the weapon and make it more convenient. Also, a lot of attention is paid to the design and appearance of the blades. The company can boast the cooperation with a number of famous knife designers from around the world. Among them is “the grandfather of the American knifebuilding” Bill Moran – the legendary blacksmith, who managed to bring US production of knives to a new level. Now the company produces several models of heavy knives, designed under his guidance.
