Centofante

The first Spyderco knife was made in 1976 under the direction of Sal Glesser. The company started out as a traveling entity as Sal & his wife, Gail, traveled from show to show. The first permanent establishment was in Golden, Colorado where the company made its first folding knife in 1978. The company proudly touts their knives as being different, peculiar, even out there. "We may look curious, homely, whatever, but we'll never be called unusable or undependable."

Love the looks of it. What is the blade length? I would like it better if it were tip up.

If you move in custom knife industry circles and/or attend knife shows you will have heard of Frank Centofante. In addition to being a celebrated and longtime custom knifemaker Frank is a past President of the Knifemaker's Guild, a strong voice in the cutlery world and a revered and respected craftsman. Collaborating on knife designs with him is something Spyderco has been fortunate enough to do several times.

I like the shape of the blade. What material is used to make the handle? The vg 10 steel is a plus too.

To me it is one of Spydercos most underrated knives.. Nice slim pocket carry and what bad can ya say about VG-10 steel!! I have one that rides in the console of my truck so that I am never without a knife.. NICE SCORE!!! ::tu:: John :D
