Quick! List the most respected and innovative knife companies you can think of. If you know anything about knives, Spyderco is somewhere near the top. Spyderco Inc. makes some of the most unique and downright bizarre knife designs you'll see on the market, but from the number of passionate fans discussing, debating, and learning everything they can about Spyderco knives, it's clear that the company has done something right.

From the Glesser Family and the Spyderco Crew:

Since starting Spyderco we've been told our knives are different, peculiar, even out there. All true. Thinking beyond established knife industry barriers allowed us to introduce new and radical innovations to the knife culture including: One-hand opening, serrations on a folder and a clip to attach a knife to a pocket.

We didn't go into business to rake in a mountain of dough we're here for more selfish reasons- indulging our passion for creating knives. Spyderco is definitely out of the norm in the knife industry in our dedication to researching and developing fresh, improved and better performing materials all with function and reliability being key.

Someone once said to Sal Glesser, Spyderco's owner, 'You must design in the dark because your knives look so strange.' True again. Our recognizable appearance is a result of designing ergonomic functional tools rather than applying lipstick and nylons to a pocketknife. We may look curious, homely, whatever, but we'll never be called unusable or undependable.

Making knives that consistently deliver reliable high-performance requires an ongoing commitment to testing. In our million-dollar testing facility we examine edge retention with a CATRA machine, look for rust development with Q-FOG, check the force needed to open and close a knife. We also repeatedly test for stress, wear, optimal heat-treating and actively search for higher quality, performance enhancing steels and materials.

As a customer you probably don't think about this, or much care, but it allows us to put forth a promise. When you purchase a Spyderco you are buying a high-quality reliable cutting tool designed and manufactured for peak performance and ergonomic comfort. Those Who Know Carry Spyderco.

As Expected, A Specialized Spyderco

My favorite EDC knives are small, unobtrusive (read: not scary to snowflakes or Karens), yet perform more as I would expect from larger models. I now have three versions of the Dragonfly 2 for this very reason. Living near the shore in the PNW, everything rusts, so I wanted this one for the corrosion resistance of its H1 blade.

The knife is quality built as every Spyderco I've purchased. As with any Dragonfly 2, it is small verging on tiny, yet because of the finger choil and the concave spine with generous jimping, I can hold it with a nearly full hand grip and use it with excellent leverage. My original Dragonfly has yet to fail. NOTE: if you have large hands, the Dragonfly 2 is likely not to be a great choice, as it may be too small. Try one before you buy.

The Salt version has a somewhat less than aesthetic color, but that'll make it easier to see when I drop it. How well does it perform? From the factory, the blade is very sharp, easily slicing paper. I can't say the same of some blades I've purchased. It snaps open easily with one hand, and it locks up as tight as any Spyderco. When closed the blade is well centered. Since the only reason I bought this is because of its corrosion resistance and having had it only for a matter of days, I cannot yet speak to how resistant is really is.

As an aside -- not necessarily bad or good -- this model was supposed to have an H1 blade. It came with an H2 blade. Based on my readings, it was claimed to supersede H1 and to be at least as corrosion resistant and hard as H1. However, according to some analyses, its metallurgy doesn't necessarily support the claim. Time will tell. I may revise my review if H2 doesn't live up to its claims.
