Worth remembering, I think, is that Sal and Gail began by wanting to make edges sharp. Consequent what they learned, Glesser blades are always made designed from their edges out. And to this magic is added ergonomic and machining genius. Looks become the result, not the motive, and therein is why I think Spyderco “came out on top”.
When asked, as here, about the Spydies that have won me over, I can’t simply point to one. Now I just offer this prepared text:
“The Military, Stretch, Chaparral, Caribbean, and Shaman are my favorite “Sals” (in order of model #), followed by the Police, Calypso, Pacific Salt, Sage, and Urban (again in order of model #). I’d recommend any of them without hesitation. Same with the PM2 and Chief that Sal and Eric designed together. And I’d also recommend the Manix, Manix2, and Lil’ Native. They are the “Erics” I have and really really love.”
