Spyderco has been an innovator in the cutlery industry since its founding in 1978. In 1981 the company revolutionized the personal EDC knife category when it introduced the world to Spyderco’s first folding knife – the C01 Worker. This knife changed the way brands and consumers looked at folding knives by introducing key features like Spyderco’s signature round hole on the back of the blade allowing easy one-handed opening.

Over the course of nearly 50 years Spyderco has created an impressive portfolio of knives. Few brands have found the perfect balance of value, functionality, and style that Spyderco has.

Constant quality improvement keeps Spyderco on the leading edge of the knife world. The company vigilantly looks for ways to keep improving its materials and manufacturing techniques while continually making adjustments to improve existing models. The result: knives expertly designed for excellent cutting performance, durability, and ease of use. Spyderco manufactures knives in the United States as well as in its state-of-the-art facilities in Taiwan, China, and Japan.

The first thing one notices when picking up a Spyderco knife is its refined ergonomic design. These knives are sleek and fit in the hand naturally, making them easier to use and safer to handle. The brand offers blades crafted from a wide range of metals, allowing consumers to find a quality knife that meets their exact preferences, including smooth and partially serrated edges.

Spyderco uses a newer process called Powder Metallurgy to craft steel for its knives. This process includes an atomizing process that instantly freezes the molten steel into a powder, stopping the formation of any inclusion or large carbides. The steel powder is heated to a point just below its melting point and is then pressed at high pressures. The process, which you can read more about here, creates premium steel that is both wear- and corrosion-resistant.
