Who are Spyderco?
Spyderco Knives, founded in 1978, and based in Golden Colorado, is a knife manufacturer whose focus is on making high quality knives for all price ranges, while producing innovative designs and ideas. They are famous for pioneering many features now commonly found in folding knives, such as opening holes, serrations and the pocket clip. The first folding pocket knife that Spyderco ever produced, featured an opening hole in the blade, designed to allow for swift opening of the blade using only the thumb and one hand. This feature has become an iconic mark of the Spyderco brand, and is found on pretty much all of their blades today.
Spyderco produces knives in every price range, from budget to premium. Although the materials change across the price ranges, one factor that remains constant is there high quality feel, durability and craftsmanship. Handles are made from materials such as aluminium, carbon fibre or fibreglass, and blades made from materials such as aluminium, with clips and other small components made mainly from titanium.
One of Spyderco’s main priorities when manufacturing a knife is that the opening, closing and locking mechanisms all work seamlessly in order to provide the customer with the best experience possible. Almost all Spyderco knives feature an opening hole in the blade, which is designed to allow for swift opening of the blade at a moments notice. Spyderco use a large number of locking mechanisms across their expansive range of products. These mechanisms include:
- Back Locks
- Ball Bearing Locks
- Bolt Action Locks
- Chris Reeve Integral Locks
- Compression Locks
- Friction Folders
- Notch Joints
- Slip Joints
- Walker Liner Locks
