Video: Spyderco 2016 Production Sample – Pattada

March 22, 2016

Click here for a more detailed look at the Spyderco Pattada production sample.

Last February, Spyderco organized the 12th annual ‘Amsterdam Meet’ in, you guessed it, Amsterdam the Netherlands. During the meet, Spyderco’s Eric Glesser presented many new concept models, prototypes and production samples that Spyderco is working on. Around 80 knifeknuts attended meet and they were asked for feedback and opinions on the new designs.

This year, we used a live videolink to a big screen, so the entire audience could get a closer look at the various details of the knife during Eric’s presentation. This clip is taken from that videolink. I hope you understand that this was not a purpose-made video presentation, but rather a taped portion of a live presentation. Nevertheless this video offers a nice first look at a new Spyderco design and its backstory.


Spyderco 2016 Production Sample – Pattada

This knife kept wanting to roll away from my lens and into the wrong angle for my lights. It was a very lightweight knife with surprising good ergonomics, for such a ‘straight’ design. This sample had a burr on the tip, but the Pattada is a very cool slender blade with the proverbial needle-like tip.
