The Spyderco Tenacious Lightweight adds another winner to Spyderco's series of lightweight editions of their most popular knives. The Tenacious Lightweight has reduced weight by nearly 10% with black FRN handle scales and full skeletonized stainless steel liners.
The 8Cr13Mov stainless blade is leaf-shaped and ground flat from spine to cutting edge for cutting performance. This model has a plain cutting edge. 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. Streamline your everyday carry with the Spyderco Tenacious Lightweight.
This knife is a solid value folder series from Syderco. My first experience with the sydie hole made me fall in love. It feels pretty good to open and close one handed. Lots of fun to play with. The blade feels a tad too thick for my liking for an EDC. Overall a good intro to knives especially syderco, but left me wanting more.
Worst thing I ever did casually collecting knives was to sell my blue lightweight Manix 2 a few years back for way less than it was worth. Wanted to get back into a Spyderco for not much money, had a gift card so I took a chance on this China-made knife that, to me, had the same look as the Manix. I recommend to anybody looking to add a Spyderco to their collection to stick with Golden-made pieces. The Manix 2 I had was exceptionally well made and was real fun to open and close and open and close and sometimes cut with. This knife barely locks up, rendering it dangerous. I reckon I'm going to return it. Direct your budget-knife money elsewhere.
