Spyderco’s Lil’ Temperance Lightweight is a powerhouse folding knife that represents the latest chapter in a 20-year evolutionary process. Originally conceived by company co-founder Sal Glesser as a personal-defense tool, it has evolved to become an exceptionally stout, full-service folding knife capable of tackling the toughest cutting chores. To elevate the performance of this design even further, Spyderco has supercharged it with a blade crafted from Böhler-Uddeholm K390 MICROCLEAN® tool steel. A state-of-the-art particle metallurgy tool steel, K390 is specially formulated to withstand the rigors of the most demanding industrial applications. When these qualities are translated to knife blades, the result is an exceptional blend of sharpness, edge retention, and toughness. The blade of the Lil’ Temperance Lightweight K390 is full-flat ground from thick 4mm (0.157-inch) stock and features an extremely keen PlainEdge™ cutting edge. It is paired with a handle built with skeletonized stainless steel liners that form the foundation of the knife’s high-strength Compression Lock® mechanism. The liners are nested within injection-molded fiberglass-reinforced-nylon (FRN) scales that feature a Bi-Directional Texture™ pattern for a secure, non-slip grip. Molded in the signature blue color of Spyderco’s elite family of K390 knives, the scales complement the knife’s open-backed construction to reduce its weight and ensure a lively balance in the hand. To keep the knife poised for instant access, the handle features a broad-based four-position clip that is easily configurable for left or right-side, tip-up or tip-down carry. One of the most capable folding knives ever produced, the Lil’ Temperance Lightweight K390 is a remarkable blend of innovation and time-honored tradition.
Leider gibt es für diesen Aussteller kein deutsches Firmenprofil.
Spyderco was founded in 1976 by Sal and Gail Glesser. In 1978, they settled in Golden, Colorado, and initially, the company focused on selling our first product: the Tri-Angle Sharpmaker™ which was primarily sold at fairs and trade shows around the country.
In 1981, Spyderco introduced their first folding knife, the C01 Worker. That knife pioneered the concept of a round hole in the blade for one-handed opening, a clip on the handle for carry at the top of the pocket, and the option of a serrated edge for aggressive cutting performance. Those features revolutionized the knife industry and literally defined the form of the modern folding knife.
Since then, Spyderco has steadily grown to become one of the leaders in the cutlery industry. In addition to a worldwide distribution network and manufacturing resources in the U.S., Japan, Taiwan, Italy, and China, our innovation has also earned us an impressive portfolio of patents, trademarks, and industry awards. More importantly, it has allowed us to earn the trust and loyalty of countless thousands of dedicated knife users around the world—an audience to whom we are extremely grateful.
