Spyderco to Sponsor the 2022 IDPA US National Championship presented by Beretta

Spyderco, a leader in the cutlery industry, has signed on to sponsor the 2022 IDPA US National Championship presented by Beretta.

Spyderco was founded in 1976, and in 1978 they settled in Golden, Colorado. In 1981, Spyderco introduced their first folding knife, the C01 Worker. That knife pioneered the concept of a round hole in the blade for one-handed opening, a clip on the handle for carry at the top of the pocket, and the option of a serrated edge for aggressive cutting performance. Those features revolutionized the knife industry and literally defined the form of the modern folding knife. Since then, Spyderco has steadily grown to become one of the leaders in the cutlery industry. In addition to a worldwide distribution network and manufacturing resources in the U.S., Japan, Taiwan, Italy, and China, our innovation has also earned us an impressive portfolio of patents, trademarks, and industry awards. More importantly, it has allowed us to earn the trust and loyalty of countless thousands of dedicated knife users around the world—an audience to whom we are extremely grateful.

“Matches like the National Championship match can’t go on without support from generous industry sponsors. We’re very grateful that Spyderco has signed on to sponsor the match. Many of our competitors carry knives in their EDC and we are always eager to share information about great EDC gear.” said Joyce Wilson, Executive Director of IDPA.

The IDPA National Championship is scheduled for September 22nd-24th, 2022, at the Cameo Shooting and Education Complex in Palisade, Colorado. Participants will be competing either Thursday or Friday and Saturday, and the match is expected to draw over 400 of the sport’s top shooters.
