Sal, spyderco history?

Postby fisherman » Tue Aug 14, 2001 12:00 am

I was wondering how spyderco got its name???

P.S. When and how could I get a catalog of the new line of knives, and the old. Anyone have pictures of the impala or other new knives. (I got side tracked)

Thanks fisherman

Here's a quote from "The Spyderco Story":

"The name Spyderco and the mascot spider that became embodied in the company's logo were derived from the word "spyder," which represented two things: the spiderlike shape of the Portable Hand (Sal's first patented project-Clay) and the designation some European automakers gave to high-performance roadsters.

High performance, then and now, is what Sal wanted to provide in whatever products he sold."


Don't worry that the world might end tomorrow, in Australia it's tomorrow already.
