Specs at a glance: G-10 handle - liner locking - 8.6 cm blade - 117 grams - Leaf shaped blade - Plain Edge - Tip up/Tip Down - Left or right handed

If you want a tool that will perform time and time again no matter what you throw at it, the Spyderco Tenacious is the right choice.

A liner locking 8Cr13MoV steel blade, the Tenacious is designed to last through years of use. The handle is crafted from G-10 fibreglass for a beautiful feel in the hand as well as a relatively lightweight overall package.

The blade is easy to sharpen, so you'll be able to keep it razor ready wherever you are. Two steel liners run inside the tool handle but barely increase overall weight. The tenacious uses the Spyderco hole which is perfect for fitting your thumb into to flip it open. The lock engages quickly and locks the blade out ready for use. It has a 4 position clip that allows you to carry it left or right handed and tip-up or tip-down.

The Spyderco Tenacious is a tool that is staggeringly cost-effective. It is great value and holds its edge well, yet is easy to sharpen when it gets worn down. With great overall quality for the price, the Tenacious is a tool you can buy on impulse and keep handy for years to come.

amazing knife

A lovely knife. The blade holds an edge reasonably well, but do prepare yourself to sharpen this if using it regularly. However the wide leaf blade is a dream to sharpen and comes up razor sharp quickly. I prefer this than using a more expensive knife with higher quality steel as you don't feel too precious about using this good value knife, but it's still a quality item. The folding action is positive and the lock provides good security. The G10 liner is superior to some more plastic ones from Spyderco. The clip is easy to remount and won't bend like some more fragile knives will. It comes in tip down configuration, but I prefer mine tip up; no worries at all - took less than 5 mins. The three bolts to retain the clip are small so I'd recommend a spot of loctite on the threads if you plan to swap the clip. It is by no means a massive knife, but neither is it a pocket knife size; if you want something a little more modest I'd recommend choosing the UK knife (also for sale here).
