    did sal ever do martial arts?

    spyderco makes quite a few knives specifically for self defense and collaborates with many well known weapons and martial arts experts. sal must have some interest in the area of self defense and fighting arts right? i was wondering if sal ever trained in any arts? does sal ever carry for self defense?

    Try to jump him next time you see him, and then you'll know the truth! You better hope he's not trying out the prototype Spyder-saber that day!

    IIRC Sal once mentioned on the forums that he had attended the riddle of steel. During some of the Amsterdam Meets, he demonstrated the Pkal on attendees (with a drone), he did that quite fluent.
