Since Spyderco produced its first knife more than 30 years ago, our products have been the go-to choice for countless “tactical” users worldwide. Discriminating armed professionals, first responders, survivalists, martial artists, and defense-minded civilians all know and appreciate the quality of our products. To help them make the best choices, however, we needed to speak to them in their language. That’s why we created OpFocus.

“OpFocus,” short for “Operational Focus,” is a term that Spyderco coined to accurately describe a view of our products from the perspective of the tactical knife user. It’s not a different product line; it’s the same products presented in a context that is relevant to the needs, interests, and frame of reference of serious end users.

From a sales and customer service perspective, Spyderco’s OpFocus team works closely with everyone from individual customers to federal agencies and entire branches of service to recommend and develop products tailored to their specific mission needs. On the marketing side, we provide targeted support to Spyderco dealers who serve the tactical community and promote our knives through themed advertising and close relationships with relevant media.

OpFocus has always been a major part of who we are and the customers we serve.

OpFocus Professional Purchase Program

Spyderco greatly appreciates the service and sacrifice of our nation’s duty-bound personnel and we believe very strongly in supporting them in every way possible. To ensure that they can equip themselves with the best knives and accessories available, we established the OpFocus Professional Purchase Program. This program allows active-duty military and law enforcement personnel and qualified first responders to purchase Spyderco products directly from us at a substantial discount. The OpFocus program is designed to allow qualified participants to purchase our product at an affordable price and obtain gear needed to do their job. Spyderco does not allow OpFocus customers to resell products bought through this program. Failure to comply will result in suspension or termination of your account.

The online OpFocus Professional Purchase Program is offered through our website for the following personnel in the United States.

  • Active Duty Military
