The mid-sized Spyderco Tenacious C122GBBKP has a black finished blade with a plain edge and a black G-10 laminate handle, milled with prolonged fatigue-free cutting in mind.

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.

There isn't much to say. Its compact. Its sharp. It's built well. And its inexpensive. Honestly one of the best under $100 knives you can have. Just buy it.
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).

My husband LOVES it!
Emily R.
I got this knife as a gift for my husband because he wouldn't stop talking about how much he desperately wants a spyderco. It certainly didn't disappoint!
Good value.
Tristan I.

The budget EDC

Great size shape fell. Lockup is great steel is ok but its definitely the hook that gets you in to spyderco blades!
May be spiderco's "budget" knife but is some serious luxory
Alex A.
Oh my god do I 100% reccomend this knife.

Ive never spent this much on a knife before, I know its really not that much compared to other peoples standards but I am so happy I bought it.

It feels amazing in the hand, opens a bit tough at first but then gets real nice as you use it. Locks up great with absolubtly zero blade play.

This is some serious luxury ive never had in a knife in the past. Where has this thing been?

Buy it, love it, enjoy being impressed every day by it. Totally amazing.


Shapness is great, when I say hair shaving sharp I mean it. I hate it when people say it is and it isnt but this thing is fully capable of shaving hair. Just lightly stroke it against hair and its gone.
I got a coffee and decided to try cutting the card hand protectors that keep them from getting too hot, stood it up on its side and just pressed down slightly and it was one amazingly clean cut. So satisfying!

This is my pride and joy so I dont know about how long the sharpness lasts but it seems to be holding up really well, no signs of losing that out of box punch.

I have had this knife for about 4 years now and it has gotten beat up. This is the knife i use when i am working and it's one of the most reliable knives i have ever owned.
Daniel S.
I LOVE THIS KNIFE!!! My first Spyderco and it will not be my last. I have recommended this knife to everyone I know now! I was impressed with the quality for the money.
Stephen o.
This is such a good knife for what you pay it's easily comparable to your 80 or 100 dollar knives. I have two actually lol.
Great working knife
Mike B.
Great for not caring about how bad you beat this up. All black is excellent too
Good to go!
Tae S.
Outstanding knife for the price. Came very sharp out of the box, with a slightly sticky deployment, but became very smooth like all spyderco's typically are.

The steel is easy to maintain and sharpen, (8Cr13Mov), and does most tasks very well without damage to the knife/blade itself.

Awesome EDC/ light Outdoors knife
First Spyderco
Scott B.
This was the knife that introduced me to Spyderco. I was hesitant at first but wanted to see what the hype was all about. It was inexpensive but well worth the money. Itís a quality blade that has served me well. The fit and finish is top notch with smooth operation and I can truly say I wouldnít change a thing. Do not hesitate to buy this knife.
The little engine that could
Christopher D.
I use this knife all the time. It's my go to medium duty edc blade. It's easy to sharpen and it stays sharp.
Great value
Trevor R.
The tenacious is perfect for an everyday carry or as a work knife. The blade holds a edge for a good amount of time and is very easy to put a razor edge on. It has a very smooth opening action and locks up very well. Only a slight amount of side to side blade play which is expected. The G10 provides a good amount of grip without being so sharp it destroys your pocket. Great purchase for anyone who loves knives. I have much more expensive ZTs and Benchmades and still enjoy carrying this knife
Best Budget Beater
Jared s.
I bought this excellent knife back in May and it hasnít left my pocket since. I use it every day and even though Iíve purchased new knives since then, the Spyderco Tenacious is always in my pocket. Iíve put some hard use into it and i have only touched up the edge once or twice. Great knife.
New favorite
Peter R.
This is my first spyderco, my wife got it for me as a gift for Christmas. I've been very impressed. I've had a few knives in this price range that all have quirks that made me quit carrying them, but after about a month of this one I can gladly say I have zero issues. A new favorite and great price from bladehq.
Good Budget EDC Knife
Evan D.
If you want an EDC knife without breaking the bank this is a good choice. Even though it is made in China, it is a Spyderco and I trust their quality. The blade material is not the best out there, but for the price it is good. It sharpens with ease and holds an edge pretty decently. I love the feel of the G-10 handles, they fit in the hand well. I love the black finish on the blade paired with the blacked out hardware and handle. I would recommend this knife to anyone that wants a good EDC or another knife for their collection. I love that a company like Spyderco will take the time to make a great budget EDC. It can be hard to find an EDC that is budget friendly and quality.
Excellent Knife
Tyler K.
This knife came sharp, solid lock up and super smooth! Itís a little larger than my persistance but still a good size to carry in my pocket. Holding it feels so good in the hand it cuts like butter! I donít think Iíve had a better knife for this price point
Perfect liner lock carry, perfect company
Eric C.
I daily a spyderco paramilitary 2, and my girlfriends little brother (15) collects knives but didn't have a good edc. I toyed with a few other options in the Kershaw and Ontario lineups, but ultimately decided to go with the spyderco. The knife was delivered in 3 days (way less time than the shipping predicted), and I put in the notes to write a birthday note for him. They did one better and drew balloons and big block letters on the package. I'm extremely satisfied with the knife ( spyderco is always a good choice) and with the company. Needless to say I will be ordering everything I can from bladehq.

Best work knife I've ever had.
Exceptional for the $

Is the steel the best? No. Is it made in China? Yes. That being said, I don't own a 45 dollar knife that even comes close to this knife. Quick deployment, solid lockup and very sharp out of box. The quality on this knife really is good. Even the affordable Spyderco knives are outstanding. They aren't "cheap." To me cheap means quality has been sacrificed. Nothing was sacrificed with this knife. If you don't want to spend a lot of money but you want a quality knife, buy it. It shocked me at how good this knife is for the money.
A safe choice

Hey guys,

This is the very first pocket knife I've bought and carried.
I've since bought several, a Kershaw Shuffle, a Spyderco Ambitious, a Kershaw Cryo II, a Benchmade Triage, a CRKT GSD, etc.. And yet the one that is still in my back pocket on a daily basis is the Tenacious.

It is cheap, discreet, solid (dropped it blade opened several times). I don't know much about the blade steel but I'm not a hardcore user so anything sharper than a butter knife works for me.

For a 1st or 10th knife, I would recommend the Tenacious in a heartbeat as an inexpensive folder.
