The following knives are rare, out of produciton or the just plain desirable Spyderco folding knives. Spyderco was founded in 1976 by Sal and Gail Glesser in Golden, Colorado. They began making folding knives in 1981, releasing the C01 Worker pocket knife. These knives were revolutionary in their design, including a pocket clip and a hole in the blade for fast ambidextrous opening. As Sal says, Spyderco knives are designed from the blade out and are made for the hand, not the eye. Some of Spyderco’s most popular models include the Shaman, the Paramilitary 2, Manix 2, the Dodo, the Smock and the high end Nirvana designed by Peter Rassenti.
