I bought this the same time as an Endura 4 and I have to admit even at the lower price this knife exibits everything which made Spyderco a household name. you can cringe at the "China" engraved on the blade but this is a knife where quality control was perfect. This has to be the best functioning knife I have ever owned. Let alone at double the cost. The flat grind is flawless, razor sharp out of the box. It is also the smoothest opening folder I own, to include the new Endura. It's that good.
If you are someone who hates spending money on something you think you might lose, or ruin this is the kind of knife that can change your perceptions at how invaluable a knife can be.
The Spyderco Tenacious and the SOG Flash II are popular choices and because I have both in half serrated, and they are in the same price range, I compare them both here. The flash II is more popular in stores and I think Wal-Mart even sell them.
I have had and still have several Flash II's and one Spyderco Tenacious. I have carried both as EDC for extended periods in tough use, so thought I would add my experience with them. I currently carry the flash II and a SAK, but carried the Tenacious and SAK for about a year and still have it and prefer it in the woods. I have carried Benchmade's, but they are a little expensive and I fear loosing one. I fly the airlines a lot on spur of the moment notice and have given several knives including at least two Flash's to TSA having no time to go back and store/ship it or something. I gave one to some Mexicans doing drywall work in the terminal in front of TSA screening rather then give it to TSA. I try to keep a knife in my desk, boat, backpack, and a couple of cars. So more expensive knives haven't been indicated for me.
I carry a folder clipped inside the pocket (clip outside), with the point down, weak hand side.
Solid construction. Feels better then the Flash in use (in the hand). It has aluminum sides under the G10.
Good blade steel. Better then the Flash II IMO. The 8Cr13MoV sounds better when sharpening too. Ha. But, that may be due to the heaver construction of the whole knife, less dampening due to the aluminum sides under the G10, and the thinner blade near the edge (flat ground). So even though the edge is thinner, and I have put a finer angle edge on it, the Tenacious holds an edge better.
Blade shape - really nice for a wide variety of tasks with a wide leaf shape. Leaves plenty of room to get your thumb against the spider hole to open the knife.
Good lock up. I don't like liner locks much, but it locks solidly and secure.
Size of the Blade. I like this size knife for EDC.
Easy enough to open with either hand.
The belt clip is more durable and versatile then the Flash. The Flash clip breaks at one of the multiple 90° bends. The Tenacious clip is lower profile, stronger, grips better in a pocket, and can be mounted up, down, left and right.
Difficulty closing with one hand: I am not a big fan of liner locks, but I like them much better then spring detent locks like old school pocket knives. I pretty much cut a thumb pad off once with a Tenacious so maybe some of it is psychological. You can get your thumb caught and sliced in the blade trying to close it with one hand. Just pushing the liner lock in will will drop the blade against your thumb if you hold it in the wrong position. Not a problem with two hands using the other one to control the blade closing, but with a bolt lock on the side you can close it with one hand and never need to get your finger/thumb under where the blade goes.
Heavy (this is not a big thing for me, but it is noticeably heaver then a flash due to partial aluminum sides under the G10).
Made in China. But, quality and steel is very good in the case of this knife, so Made in China" is more about ethics and politics then quality in this case.
SOG Flash II
Assisted opening. Get it past 5 or 10° with light pressure on the thumb and it snaps open. Great one handed operation, even if injured. A little more wow, or cool, factor then the Tenacious.
Light weight. Feels quite a bit lighter then the Spyderco. Perhaps even less then substantial (personal preference). The flash is all plastic actually glass-reinforced nylon (GRN). It has some kind of metal bushing between the blade and (GRN) sides.
Size of the Blade. I like this size knife for EDC.
Lock up is solid, as far as staying open/not closing. There is a little slop though when open in both directions. I have never tried to tighten it up. I have never worried about it closing on me in use.
Safety. You can lock it so it wont open in your pocket.
Easy to sharpen.
Made in USA
Slop when open. Not bad, but not as tight as the Tenacious.
I have had it come open in my pocket a couple of times in active situations. It wasn't locked when this happened. Pretty scary. I knew it was open, or partially open; in one case when I reached in my pocket and cut a fingers, and two other times when I felt the point sticking into the front of my hip. In the later two I stopped moving and then moved real slowly until I got it folded back up and under control. Front pocket, bad place for an open knife. For some reason a Benchmade Barrage assisted open has never come open in my pocket. Of course the Benchmade is a great knife, but at more then twice the cost. I think the flash lacks a tendency to stay closed. Better spring assisted knives seem to have more force toward closed until you pass the point where it springs toward open. It's not like the safety is a plus, so much as it is just plain needed, because of the tenancy to come open if the thumb nut is bumped in the pocket. However, the safety will come off, or turn on, in pocket. This further aggravates the above problem.
Steel is softer then Tenacious and doesn't hold an edge nearly as well. Easy to ding and dull the edge. Supposed to be AUS-8, 56-58 Rockwell (same hardness as Tenacious's Chinese 8Cr13MoV, but I perceive all three Flashes to be softer than and not hold an edge as well as the Tenacious based on use and response when sharpening ).
I have broken 2 belt clips. SOG replaced them for free though. There is a place on there web sight for this.
Belt clip can be mounted for left or right but not up or down. It only mounts for point down (that is it will be point down if opened).
Fairly complicated to disassemble if needed to clean. Goes with the territory for an assisted.
I like both knives for different reasons.
I give the edge to the Tenacious for the Blade design & hardness, build construction, and belt clip. Opening is good and easy but requires moving the blade all the way open, or a strong flip on a well broken in knife.
The Flash II is lighter (may be good or bad). I like the bolt action lock better, mainly for ease of closing with one hand, and the spring assist opening it great. The flash has more pzazz.
Both knives are about the same price $30 to $45 depending on options and seller at the time of this post, with the Spyderco starting on the lower end of the overlap price range and the Flash topping out the range.
A cross between these with the Spyderco blade design and steel, assisted opening and an axis type lock like the Flash, would be real cool. Better then either one IMO. My Benchmade Barrage is the best of both worlds or better, and I like it better (who wouldn't), but too expensive for EDC for me.
I have to say the Spyderco Tenacious is the more practical choice and probably a better choice for most applications.
Best choice is to get them both.
Hope this helps someone decide.
It seems to be well built, feels good in the hand, easy to open and close, great steel. The liner lock is very solid.
If you're like me and don't have a lot of money to spend on a good, high end knife, I would strongly recommend this one -- you could spend a lot more money and not get a knife as good as this one.
One of the main factors contributing to the perception of this being a large knife is the fat blade. I also got the half serrated edge, which gives it more of a wicked/dangerous look to casual observers (i.e. folks in public, who aren't "knife people"). So compared to the Paraframe, this thing is a beast. Although not much longer in blade length (maybe .5in?), the difference in overall knife length is significant. The handle of the Tenacious is also fairly thick, further adding to the beefy nature of this knife. If you're concerned about raised eyebrows or drawing attention when pulling out the knife in public, you may want to look at different models w/in the Spyderco lineup, or go with another company. No, it's not really that large of a knife, and over the three days that I've had it, I've easily grown accustomed to it and have started to wonder what the big deal was all about when I first saw it. But if I try to recall my own, and my family's, first impressions, they are of a big knife.
So I have also purchased the Spyderco Persistence. This is the little brother to the Tenacious, and is sized just right, in my opinion. However, this sizing is only in relation to the blade itself. I have large hands and my favorite feature of the Tenacious is the ergonomics. The Tenacious feels like it was made for my hand and is without a doubt, the more comfortable knife for me to handle. Still, due to it's larger blade size, I'm still not sure which one I'll carry as my primary EDC. Also, the Persistence is not made with a serrated edge. Anyway, both are excellent choices, but be careful if you've got any concerns about size.
Update after thirty days: I decided to carry the Persistence (although I've kept both knives) and I'm very happy with my choice! Yes, the handle is somewhat smaller than that of the Teneacious, but it's very close in size and has been a total non-issue. The Persistence is just about perfect! The addition of a partially serrated blade would be the only change I'd make. Also of note is the fact that the blade on the Persistence seemed to be sharper out of the box.

Einfach ein Klack und es ist verriegelt. Ich denke mehr muss ich hierzu nicht schreiben. Den Teilwellenschliff empfinde ich als sehr gut gelungen, so kann man feine Arbeiten genauso gut durchführen, wie auch Seile oder anderes durch den Wellenschliff schneiden. Empfehle es echt weiter :-)
