From among these choices, the knife that I am carrying most often these days is the Tenacious. Admittedly, a part of the reason for that is that this knife is newer than the others. But some new knives I have received over the years (Christmas, Birthdays, etc.) found their place in a drawer pretty quickly. Newer or not, I wouldn't carry this knife if I felt that it was notably inferior to the others.
First, the blade: The Tenacious offers a hefty chunk of steel, especially compared to most other knives at this price point. The modified leaf shape, non-serrated design is very close to the optimal drop point style I prefer. Adequate blade thickness together with the flat grind and wide chord design give this blade extra strength. I'd expect this knife to perform well even for rugged duty tasks. I respect - and never deliberately abuse - my knives. But I don't baby them either and so far these expectations (over about 3 months use) seem well founded.
The Tenacious has some niceties and features that are not usually expected at this price point. The G-10 scales and the smoothness of blade deployment, for example. The pivot tension is user adjustable. I also like the fact that the pocket clip can be switched around to suit user preference. Last but not least, the skeletonized steel liners and a hefty liner lock give this knife a solid feel. (Some people don't like liner locks but unless you are a lefty, I don't know why.Read more ›
I recommend getting the full straight blade instead of the 1/2 serrated.
If you're thinking about spending $30 or more on the little brother (Spyderco Persistence), you might as well get this one. Bigger blade, similar weight, and same price.
**Edit, after over 4 years of use**
Okay, so here's a long term update. I've had this blade for nearly 4 years, using it occasionally. During this time I've taken it camping, kayaking, had it on my toolbelt while I worked in the garage, had it resting on my nightstand... I see this blade nearly every single day and put it to use whenever I can. It's my go-to blade.Read more ›
First off, WOW! I am blown away at the amazing knife I got for only $32. I did a lot of looking around, reading reviews, checking out hundreds of youtube vids (big thanks to nutnfancy and cutlerylover for the wonderful knife reviews and insight!) and I figured I should give the Tenacious a try due to all the rave it gets around the net. I will say this, those rave reviews are not inaccurate! This thing is simply a LOT of knife with top notch quality for a unbelievable price. There is a few downsides though, one in particular with has soured the excellent experience I have had thus far, but overall the tenacious is worth well over the ~$30 it sells for. In fact this knife could easily sell at two or three times its cost and still be worth it (would need better steel at a higher price point though).
But anyway, here is the pro/con breakdown.
- Cheap, cheap, cheap! ~$30 is the kind of knife you will actually use and not worry about beating up. Doesn't really matter if you lose/break it, sure it will stink, but for $30 you won't lose much sleep over it.
- Great lockup. Out of the box the Tenacious had ZERO blade play in either direction, and even after flipping it open with great authority all day long (and I really mean whipping it open hard) it still locks up TIGHT! The liner lock is also rock solid, and I can't imagine it failing under normal (or even beyond normal) usage of the knife.
