SP122GP: Tenacious - Plain Edge
Spyderco®

Being tenacious means one holds fast. One is persistent and cohesive. It means being tough and tireless until achieving your goal: all knife-worthy definitions for a worthy knife. The mid-sized Tenacious has a black G-10 laminate 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 8Cr13Mov stainless blade is leaf-shaped and ground flat from spine to cutting edge for cutting performance. 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. Screw together construction.

Pros: Lock Type, Ease of Opening, Pocket Clip, Lock Ease of Use, Handle Material, None
Cons: Blade Sharpness, Overall Quality, Handle Feel, Blade Material
Not up to the Spyderco Native.
Purchased a Spyderco Native in GIN-1 steel twelve+ years ago, and it is still my favorite folding blade. I got the Tenacious last year due to the price point, and sorry, it just doesn't match the quality of the USA manufactured Native. The blade is thinner on the Tenacious, and has a different grind; probably would have been "satisfactory for the money", but it is what it is. You won't be sorry holding out for the Spyderco Native for better steel, better ergonomics, and yes it costs more but you really do get more with the Native. No comparison, so the Tenacious went back for refund.

Cons: Pocket Clip, None
If you are on the edge, buy it.
I love the knife. Great for cutting boxes which is what I primarily use it for. Comes razor sharp. The ability to change the position of the pocket clip is nice, although it doesn't come with a tool to do so. I am a lefty so the original orientation of the pocket clip isn't very suited to my specific needs, but doesn't hinder the performance of the knife. One thing that may deter some buyers is that the knife is made in china, but Spyderco is a very reputable company and had the name "china" not been on the blade, you wouldn't know the difference. One other thing that could change your purchase is the size. It is a bit on the big side. Luckily Spyderco has two smaller replicas of the same knife.

Cons: Blade Material
Nice design, poor steel.
For the past year I've used this knife daily for fishing, slicing food, cutting bits of string & plastic etc. It's a very nice and practical design, but the steel lets it down - it rusts very easily and the edge has many nicks in it.
