Spyderco 2013 OpFocus Video

Postby Michael Janich » Mon Jan 28, 2013 10:26 am

I recently produced a promotional video in support of Spyderco's OpFocus program. In addition to providing a compelling video element to our OpFocus booth at the 2013 SHOT Show, the video highlights some of Spyderco's newest products and pays tribute to our nation's military, law enforcement, and first-responder personnel for their service.

OpFocus--short for "Operational Focus"--is a perspective of Spyderco's product line based on the demanding needs of law enforcement, military, fire/rescue personnel, and self-reliant, defense-minded citizens.

I hope you enjoy it!

Stay safe,
