Celebrating its 40th anniversary in 2016, Spyderco literally invented the modern folding knife by integrating groundbreaking features like the pocket clip, serrated edge and one-handed opening capability. Although those innovations are now taken for granted, they literally revolutionized folding knife design and changed the knife industry forever. Spyderco was also the first production knife company to collaborate with noted custom knifemakers, making the advanced features and distinctive style of their handmade designs available to everyone in the form of high-quality factory-made knives. Today Spyderco continues to lead from the front, pioneering the use of state-of-the-art blade steels, high-tech materials, and uncompromising quality standards. In addition to a full spectrum of utilitarian folding knives, fixed blades, kitchen knives, and sharpeners, Spyderco also offers investment-quality knives and specialized cutting tools for armed professionals, first responders and self-reliant civilians.
