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).

I'm not a collector or a knife connoisseur, but I've held and used many high dollar knives. I keep this knife on me nearly every day and have for the last several years. It's been used to field dress and skin enough deer to feed an army. It's been used while camping. It's been on my hip while fishing in the gulf of mexico, mud-riding on ATV's, etc etc, etc. I have not babied this knife. I clean it when it gets really dirty. I touch up the edge before skinning a deer with it. A little oil on blade and in the hinge every year or so and it has proven to be as reliable and faithful as old friend.
Speaking of which, I gave this to a special forces buddy of mine last month when he was deploying - not because he needed a knife but because he knew what a good tool this is and he has seen it put through it's paces on many occasions. He knew how valuable it has been to me and I hope it will be just as valuable to him in some way.
I bought a new one 2 weeks later. LOL. At this price, I should have bought a few spares in case I lose it fishing or drop it in a bottomless mud hole.
Proven track record of dependability
Excellent blade design for slicing, food prep, cutting cordage and most other cutting tasks
Spyder hole is very easy and quick to deploy
Pillared open construction
Liner lock is pretty strong and has amble gimping
4 way carry pocket clip
Skeletonized liners makes it light weight
Ergonomics could use improvement - hot spot in the side of handle next to liner lock where the finger choil is not deep enough
The detent on mine is very weak and comes open in pocket, also pocket clip carries fairly high (about average).
The blade is 3 3/8" long and is a good deal broader than most knives, which I like. I just love the shape of this blade with its big sweeping belly. I also love the Full Flat Grind, it is my favorite grind by far. The thumb hole is also great in both size and position. The blade steel is 8CR13MOV and it came insanely sharp straight out of the box. It holds its edge pretty well but re-sharpens very quickly. I generally don't let it get too dull, I just swipe it on a ceramic rod occasionally and it restores to like new sharpness.
The handle scales are G10 and they are about the perfect amount of traction for me. Nice and grippy without sticking to fabric. The pocket clip is firm and can be positioned for tip up or tip down carry for both right and left hand. There is also a lanyard hole in the handle. I find this knife so comfortable in hand, no hotspots and shaped perfectly for multiple grip options.
Blade deployment is extremely fast and smooth. It was very nice out of the box but after I did some very minimal tweaking of the pivot screws it deploys like a spring assisted knife with almost no wrist flick needed. It locks up like a vault every time it is opened (no matter which way I open it) and blade centering is absolutely perfect.
As I said, this is by far my favorite as well as most carried knife. I probably carry this 70% of the time. I have about 10 folding knives in my collection and I love most of them but if I was limited to 1 folding knife (thank god that is not the case) this would be the one I would keep. And all this for $31. A true high value masterpiece by Spyderco.
