Product Description

Being tenacious means one holds fast. It means being tough and tireless until achieving your goal: all knife-worthy definitions for a worthy knife. This mid-sizedTenacious Plain Edge Knife by Spyderco has a black G-10 laminate handle, milled with prolonged fatigue-free cutting in mind. Tucked inside are skeletonized steel liners increasing the handle's rigidity and strength without adding non-functioning weight or bulky thickness. The 8Cr13Mov stainless blade is leaf-shaped and ground flat from spine to cutting edge for cutting performance. The blade's shape coupled with an oversized Spyderco Round Hole and textured spine jimping allow you to open the blade and position your thumb on the spine in slip-proof confidence ready for work. A Walker Linerlock (with jimped liner) and a 4-way pocket clip lets you set your carry and draw preference: Tip-up/tip-down left-hand/right-hand. Screw together construction.Weight 4oz (115g).

Customer Reviews

Razor sharp out of the box and holds an edge well.
The G-10 handle feels very nice in your hand, and is comfortable to grip.
This knife is one of the best values you will ever find out there.

I collect knives, and in addition to the Spyderco Tenacious, I have three other "good" folders of about the same size & weight, suitable for every day carry. All are well regarded in their price classes ($40.00, $90.00 and $120.00).

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.

I just got my Tenacious today, I don't have any long-term results yet so I will update as necessary. However I like this knife so much I felt the need to write down a review for it ASAP.

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.

- Loving the Spydie thumb hole!

For $35, this is the best knife you'll find. It came out of the box razor sharp, and still holds a decent edge after some use with cardboard boxes and cutting paracord. After about 5 mins of stropping, it was just as good as new. The G-10 is comfortable, and holds a decent grip even if you have sweaty palms. This knife (though ambidextrous) was designed for the right hand, as the G-10 has a slight groove for the thumb while opening and closing. The carry clip was a slightly stiff when I ordered it, but it works perfectly right now. Carry tip up, tip down, either side. The liner lock is tough and thick, but smooth enough so you're not closing it with two hands. It deploys quick and smooth, with a beautiful snapping click. The entire grip and design of the knife fits very well, and I love the fat belly of the knife. Makes cutting a whole lot easier. It's pretty light, at around 4.0oz. I had been carrying around a leatherman most of the time, and this thing is a feather compared to the Skeletool CX. If you're leaning towards buying this knife, just get it. It'll be a knife you can actually use and abuse.

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.
