You know we talk a lot about Spyderco's great collaborations with other premier knife makers and knife designers and many of them I deem to be among the very best like "JD Smith, Massad Ayoob, Bob Lum ect,>> but I've said it before on at least a dozen occasions that Sal & Eric Glesser have both given us many premium models that they have designed over the years that will compete with any of those great aforementioned models. I still think that Sal Glesser's TEMPERANCE 1 model is about my all time most favorite fixed blade model I've ever held in my hand>> and I would still love to see an H-1 Salt version of that model. Oh yes I realize that many of you think many of the newer designs like the TEMPERANCE 2 are better but I humbly disagree with that. I just feel like he got the TEMPERANCE 1 model perfect the first time>>> and it really rocks in Spyderedge
Sal & Eric's blade designs are not only unique and aesthetically appealing to the eye but most of them are also extremely functional for such specialized designs. Take Eric's DODO model for instance>> most people regard it as a novelty type design but I've actually carried and EDCed my Dodo on many occasions to discover that it is a great all purpose EDC blade. I think the Dodo model is the best EDC carry for it's size range period. You sure wouldn't think so by just looking at it>> because until I actually put it to the test I didn't take it seriously at all.
Sal's entire CALYPSO model family are truly unbelievable and I like everyone of them. And who else would have come up with a genius design, folding fillet knife like the Catcherman. I rest my case
