Description

Description

The mid-sized Spyderco Tenacious C122GP has a satin finished blade with a plain edge and a black G-10 laminate handle, milled with prolonged fatigue-free cutting in mind. Tucked inside are skeletonized steel liners increasing the handleís 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 bladeís shape coupled with an over sized 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.

I am an electrician and I use a knife almost everyday for doing everything from opening boxes to terminating wire. I carry this knife everyday and it never lets me down! This knife is probably the best bang for your buck at this price point!

The Tenacious was my first edc knife. I've had mine for about 4 years now and it's still holding up well.

The knife is easy to sharpen, clean and maintain. It fits well in my hands and is easy and light enough to carry in jeans, gym shorts, etc... I also like the blade design better than the PM2. And the plain colored G10 scales over the more expensive polestar.

My only gripe is with Spyderco themselves. I wish they would consider offering Sprint or exclusive runs of the tenacious in different steels. The budget knife category is overrun with amazing knives with better steel choices.

Come on Spyderco the Taiwan factory has D2. Take back the budget knife category.

I don't have the budget for a PM2 so this knife was my go to for a long time. Easy to sharpen, held a good edge through some decent abuse.

Lost mine on a camping trip and look for it every time I go back to that spot, hoping it will turn up.

Great, budget friendly knife.

This is the knife that started it all for me in regards to using and collecting knives. I wanted something inexpensive yet high quality and the Tenacious met both of those wants. It holds a great edge yet it is very easy to sharpen. Iíve had it for 7 years and it has never failed on me. Iíve used it extensively on the farm and in various other circumstances. This is a great knife to get started with.
Good knife for the price.

Have had this knife for over a year. One that I carry more often then others in my rotation. I bought it because of a youtube review that rated as one of the top slicing action and I have to agree. The knife is very good for the price.

The steel is decent, the liner lock is thick, and the action is fairly smooth.

I have wanted a spiderco for a while now and the Tenacious seemed like a good place to start. I have got to say that I was blown away by how awesome this knife is. If this is the lower end of spiderco then holy cow i dont see how it gets much better.

Decent, functional knife, but is held back by its materials and fit and finish. Steel could be much better for the price and the Spyderhole was sharp enough to slice open my thumb. There are better knives out there around this same price point.
Nice!!!

Bought this for my first Spyderco. Have mostly Carried Kershaws and Benchmades in the past. The knife is a Little large for my work pants and what I do (pharmacy/slacks) How ever the build quality is much higher than I expected from a $50 Knife. I bought my wife a Persistance which is pretty much just a slightly smaller version of this. Since then we have traded and each has become our daily since then. Cant Wait to get my delica 4 in next week!
Almost perfect

i just bought this on my trip to the US and i'd say it's one of the best knifes I've owned.
the functionality is top notch, the edge retention is great and it feels very ergonomic and strong in the hand. i would definitely recommend buying this knife.
p.s. here from the new spiderco video on their youtube channel, it was great.

Love this knife for its affordability and slicing prowess. It's a great slicer and stays sharp for quite a while considering the steel its made from. The flat grind and tall sides make it great for chopping veggies or slicing through meat.It's my first Spyderco, and won't be my last.
Very Nice

I bought this one because I wanted to get a Spyderco I havenít had one before and it ticked all the boxes sizewize for me. Iíve always heard good things about Spyderco and I wasnít disappointed for the price itís fantastic. It feels great in hand, love the one hand opening action on it. The cut away for the liner lock is done really wellólow relief so it doesnít alter the grip, but enough is cut away itís really easy to access. Itís also kept its edge much better than other knives I own from other companies at the same price point and in the same size range. Would buy again.

This knife was my first spyderco I ever bought. This knife, even at its price point can hold a decent edge and for the size, this knife makes for a good backup while camping. The screws did rust a little but that is probably due to over exposure to the elements. For the size this knife also fits great in the pocket and would recommend it for anyone looking for a bigger EDC knife who is on a tight budget. Ever since this purchase I have made an effort to prioritize spyderco knives as a favorite.
More than decent

This is the first Spyderco I've ever used, and even though it's a lower quality build, the craftsmanship out does knives twice the price. It feels great, I love the thumb ramp, and it can take a crazy edge. Be cautious if you get serrations on yours. I once sharpened my friends tenacious and that included the serrations, and the next person he handed the knife to was cut by just a light poke.
Great Quality Knife

I got this knife a week ago. I was blown away. How could this knife made in China be better than my USA made Kershaw?? I donít know but it is as good if not better. This knife is super sharp and the G10 is amazing. Totally Recommend!!!

Good: G10, LinerLock, deployment hole, Amazing Spyderco quality
Bad: blade steel I guess for some people but is good for me
Ugly: came with minuscule dent but barely noticeable, fingerprints get on the blade but I can deal with it
Bang for your buck

Iíve gotta be honest I didnít really have high expectations for this you know itís a $50 knife that you donít really hear about but I am really blown away. Spyderco really outdid themselves. When I got it, it was arm hair shaving sharp. I ended up taking it camping and it took everything thing I threw at it like a champ. I would definitely buy this again and it impressed me so much I recently bought a delica and have my eye on the para 3
Great Quality Buy

I really didnít like Byrd knives because I really dislike the deployment hole. I think Spyderco really knocked it out of the park when they started making value knives under the Spyderco name rather than under the Byrd brand name.

This knife is a great value knife! Need a beater knife but want something visually similar to other Spyderco knives? This knife has you covered. The Tenacious fits the medium size in this line of knives (itís siblings being the Resilience, Persistence, and Ambitious).

This is a very comfortable knife to use, the handle is full and nicely contoured. I find I use this knife most when Iím camping. Itís a bit bulky for an EDC and the clip and G10 really grip your pocket, to the point of making it difficult to retrieve. The blade shape is great for food prep in the field. My favorite feature of this knife is that the blade edge extends all the way to the grip with no choil. This allows you to really choke up on the grip and do fine cutting tasks like finish whittling or fuzz stick making with ease. Only major downside is the blade tarnishes easily and doesnít hold an edge long, so it requires a it more maintenance than most.
Good enough

At first i wasn't too impressed. I wasn't expecting much, but compared to the rat model 1, its short comings were starting to show. The blade came uncentered, the pivot screw kept coming loose, there is a squeak sound when you open and close the blade, and the blade seriously plays when you barre down on what you are cutting. But after taking it apart, cleaning it and applying locktight, it started to grow on me. Its a good starting spyderco, nice and sharp, good blade shape and the g10 makes it feel nicer than other budget knives. But its not quite to the spyderco quality control level as their other factory made knives, Ontario's Taiwan knives are even at a higher quality control standard than these, that is for sure.

I decided to buy this knife with the objective of seing if the siza and blade shape were good for a daily basis EDC, i bought it because of the similarity in shape, length and size of the PM2 and I cam say that being only 50 bucks is a bargain, excelent first Spyderco amd first EDC
Great value for $45

Definitely worth the price, and higher quality than almost all other knives of the same price.
It isn't perfect though, there is noticeable blade play right out of the box, and the steel is lower quality than most other Spydercos.

Spiderco made a knife that is durable and still affordable for most people. It was my first spiderco and I'm in love with the round hole opening system. Once you start using it you'll hate thumb studs.

I have nearly a dozen Spydercoís that are in my daily EDC rotation or are in each car and truck I drive. Iím never without one on my hip or in my console tray or in my back packs. Iím a wheelchair user and even have a [Brand X automatic knife] blade in a sheath zip tied to my wheelchair frame for instant access. Friends always know who to ask when they need to open a box or cut a line. Makes me feel confident and secure when I canít carry concealed that I still have protection. Love my Spidercos!!!

If you're unsure about the thumbhole opener, or think it's ugly, just try one of these. You won't be disappointed!

Okay by most people's standards but I have pretty high standards for Spyderco products but this knife has an edge only a plastic butter knife would envy. I could barely get through printer paper with it. Lock up is good, opens smooth enough but this knife I got falls well below the standard Spyderco has set. I payed $45.00 for a knife that has slowly gone up in price but down in quality. If this is any indication of the direction Spyderco is heading than I just bought my last knife from them. Blade HQ is great, the best place to buy knives from thanks guys.

My knife came with some really inconsistent grinds. The edge was actually on totally different angles on both sides when I received the knife, but it was still pretty sharp. I had to re-profile the blade and it takes and holds the edge really well. The opening is smooth and easy. Has a great detent for the price. I recommend this to anybody looking for a great first knife.
Awesome budget blade!

The knife is awesome for the money, but I did have a few small issues. The edge grid was super inconsistent and the FFG is just a bit... lumpy I guess. If it was a pm2 or something more costly it would have been sent back right away. But for the price point I am satisfied with the knife.

Love BladeHQ!
