Information from the Spyderco catalog on the web

FB05 Temperance

"Spyderco's Temperance fixed-blade meets all the criteria needed in a hard-use, medium-sized outdoor knife. Designed in-house by Sal Glesser for camp, utility and MBC use, Sal surprisingly even uses his Temperance in the kitchen as well as outside.

Built like a solid billet of steel, the VG-10 blade is thick, substantial and wide. It comes double flat-ground and stamped in a versatile spear-point pattern. A textured spine cusp and choil on the blade, position both thumb and index finger for advantageous control on the handle. Developed with MBC in mind, the hearty features neatly cross over for use as a survival knife or hunting, camping, even kitchen chores. Molded FRN, the handle has ergonomic dimples for indexing and other MBC maneuvers. Its flattened pommel creates a leveraging shelf on which to place the thumb in a backward or reverse grip. Sheathed in a Boltaron sheath with 5-positioned Tek-Lok." [1]
