Only Rescue I have is the blue handled version like 5th one down in this pic. Carried it as a work knife at the hospital till I got a Gen 4 Delica. Always liked how the blade on this version looked.

Nice collection.
:eek: I was going to say that I had never heard of a yellow Rescue with hump blade.
Then I had a closer look at it. :D

:D Loving this thread.

I had the Atlantic out one day and over laid the ‘04 on top of it and the rest is history!! The hump blades are really user friendly and unique IMHO. I added a rescue wave and have a 79mm in orange in the collection. If the timing is ever right a WTC is my grail.
Sprint request: Flat Iron Salt (CE w/ yellow FRN)

I bet some of those took a bit of hunting down. Not so meagre.

I think it can go even smaller than that - small enough to look like jewellery... ;)

OK I know that this thread is about all the great RESCUE models from the past 3 decades. But doesn't anyone else but me have any respect for those Stainless handled RESCUE models out of the ATS-55 era??? I do believe anyone who would test drive one of them would fall in love with that model as I did.

The STainless RESCUE is truly a Hidden Classic from a forgotten era>> and a super classic era at that. Of all the RESCUE and any of the other Sheepsfoot blade models that Spyderco has ever made I defy someone to show me anything better built than one of the STainless Handled RESCUE models from the ATS-55 Era > from the late 90s/early 2000s

I don't think that there is a Spyderco folder made any more solid and rigid than the Stainless RESCUE IMO

Yeah right :rolleyes: Just like if I found a $100 dollar bill laying on the ground I would be sure to turn it in to City Hall as well :rolleyes:

Actually I wouldn't blame you because you would love it the first time you used it. I know I sure did ;)

The I prefer the Spyderco Rescue/sheepsfoot knives to have a little bit of PE at the tip, as opposed to having the serrations all the way to the tip. IMO, that little bit of PE multiplies the overall usefulness of a SE sheepsfoot blade; I have no use for a serrated tip.

I'm so glad you made mention of the ATS-55 era. Yeah I know that Sal has said on occasions that they proved VG-10 to be better which is why they dropped ATS-55. But for some really strange reason I've always liked ATS-55 in spite of that decision >> especially in sheepsfoot/RESCUE type models. I've found ATS-55 to be a great steel for serrated/Spyderedged units and for the past two months I've been EDCing an ATS-55 Stainless RESCUE model and I don't plan to retire it any time soon. It makes a really nice edge that really bites well in PE too.

Also I feel like the ATS-55 era and ATS-34 era both were a huge turning point in Spyderco's long term game plan. Because during and after those two important eras in Spyder History the product line just got better and continues to get better yet. It is as if that particular blade steel kind of set the stage so to speak. If they have left over bar stock of ATS-55 and/or 440V I would have no problem with new Spyderedged models being made in those steels.

Also in any trades when I get offered old Spyders out of the ATS-55 era I always take notice. I even consider my ATS-55 big C-44 Dyad to be sacred in my user rotation.

I love my 440V as well, You brought up a real passion for me. I do like some of the more modern steels as well, but my 440V military is a favourite.

I would love to get a Rescue in ATS-55. I was lucky enough to get a Merlin in ATS-55, I really like the steel and the knives of the era.
