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 FRN handle scales and full skeletonized stainless steel liners.

The mid-sized Spyderco Tenacious has a 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 stainless blade is ground flat from spine to cutting edge for cutting performance. The blade’s 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.

This is my first Spyderco manufactured in China and the quality control on mine is perfect. Really nothing that I can nit pick. The Tenacious is a great edc knife. Size, weight, ergos and price are all spot on for me. The upgraded steel is what got me to finally buy one though. Cheers

Better than expected
Sean D. on Oct 14, 2021

I figured I would like this knife, but between the steel, f&f and how comfortable and easy it is to use this has been pretty consistently kicking other knives out of my pocket. I've been waiting for this knife to come out for a long time (a tenacious in a premium steel) and it certainly did not disappoint. The only problem I had was that it needed taken apart and cleaned when I received it to get a really smooth action, but that's pretty normal.

Excellent EDC, good value
Robert L. on Mar 3, 2022

I like Spyderco quality and have owned 7 over the years - ranging from a zdp-189 Dragonfly to a Manix 2 XL and Military. The one thing I've never liked is the finger choil at the base of the blade. It will turn your 3.3" Manix 2 into a 2.9" blade, which is a shame because it's too short. I understand the reasons why the finger choil is there, it's just not something I ever use. I always told myself if the Tenacious was ever offered in premium steel, I'd buy it simply because it's the perfect EDC length for my uses and has no finger choil. It's been in my pocket for several months now. It works great, holds an edge for a long time, and is very lightweight. No complaints. I only wish other Spydercos were in this price range - they are simply much more than I want to pay later.

Another Great Spidey

Love this steel! Razor sharp out of the box. A little bigger than I normally carry but dang it’s a good knife!
