Spyderco Source

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."

I suspect most Speyderco afficiandos already know this. But just in case, AG Russell offers a really extensive collection. Russell admits that when Sal Glesser first showed him a Speyderco he responded that it was the ugliest knife he had ever seen. Nevertheless, he put it in his catalog and they sold like wild fire.
