The Terzuola's look nice. I have one of his early Titanium scaled customs from the 80's or early 90's I think. Can't recall exactly when I got it. Even back then, it took more than a year from when I ordered it from him before I got it. Interesting to see he apparently still likes ATS-34.

Not knowing the vast encyclopaedia the way some do...I have to say that the ATR looks like a Stretch...

The Terzuola was the first collab that Spyderco did if I'm not mistaken.
It has titanium handles that are coated, but there are also G-10 handled versions.
The large version was made between 1990-1993, the smaller was made in 1993.

The one I was describing is not a collaboration model. It's one that was personally made by Mr. Terzuola. Funny thing is that although it has significant collector value and the craftmanship is outstanding, I still prefer regular production Spydercos like the Para 2 and the Caly 3.5 to name just two.

No I understood that, but because you said "apparently he still likes ATS-34", I just wanted to point out these models are from the early 90's and not something recent ;)

Oh, I see. Thanks for explaining.

That makes sense because I was never all that impressed with ATS 34.

Nice catches. FWIW, I believe the handles on the Terzuolas are anodized aluminum, not titanium.

Nice, love the C15/C19 in PE.
Got the G10 C19 in CE only, need a sprint of the C15 classic.

Very nice trio there! I particularly like the ATR. I think a smaller ATR 'Jr' would be an interesting knife if Spyderco decides to revisit this design.

Nice knives, I also have the ATR –it's a marvel. The Terzuolas are beautiful, raw and business-like. Would like to have one some day. -P

Cool. The Terzuola Jr. Was the 1st Spydie I owned. A guy in the knife store showed me this "one handed" opening knife. I thought it looked cool and bought it. Had to take it back for a scratch I found and he didn't have any more and recommended a Benchmade AFCK. I had a hole, so I got that. It's a well made knife, but didn't know the history I know now. Wish I had kept that Terzuola!!

Nice finds!

Seeing the ATR in a decent pic for the first time in a while, I am thinking I might have to get one as well. Between the removable jimped cobra hood and the scale-integral compression lock, this one really has a style of its own that I dig. I'm guessing that it locks into the hand well for having polished metal handle slabs as well, and I dig the blade shape (though I agree with comparisons to the Stretch).
I drink, and I cut things.

I'd love to have a C15 to carry, but there is little chance of that happening.

Congrats! Thanks for showing the pictures.
That reminds me, I must get my old Terzuola out and clean it up, haven't looked at it in a very long time. :)
