SP136GP: Persistence

Depending whom you ask, Persistence means different things to different people. It means continuing without veering off course or changing function or structure. It describes ongoing existence regardless of interference or challenges. Some even say persistent personalities experience déjà vu more frequently due to their repetitive drive. We thought it a great name for a knife as it also means steadfastness and never-give-up-attitude. Spyderco’s C136 Persistence is the smaller version of the Tenacious Model, another reliable descriptive of human nature. We milled the black G-10 laminate handle with prolonged fatigue-free cutting in mind. Comfort in hand means easier use long-term. Skeletonized steel liners tucked inside the handle, increase the handle’s rigidity and strength level without adding non-functional weight or bulkiness. The 8Cr13MoV stainless blade is a modified skinning-style, ground-flat. Careful positioning of the oversized Spyderco Round Hole, relative to the location of the pivot, pre-set the hand in just the right spot for fumble-free one-hand blade open/close. Fully sharpened edge from tip to tang generates the most cutting edge possible for the blade’s length. A 4-way pocket clip lets the folder set tip-up/tip-down left-hand/right-hand. Walker Linerlock has a jimped liner. Screw together construction.

Compact Spyderco -nice.
When I bought this compact knife, a few years back, I found it to be an ideal EDC, for those who, for one reason or another, like to carry a blade under 3 inches in length. I don't baton wood, or cut sheetrock for a living, so for me this steel strength is plenty adequate. because it holds an edge well, and is easy to sharpen, it suits my every day needs: peeling fruit, cutting rolls, cheese and other food items when I'm on the go. Also perfect letter opener, cardboard cutter, and I use it, too, to cut up recyclables. If I had to do it again, however, I could probably pick up something in the present as good or better as the Persistence at less than half the price. If you like smaller made folders, Sanrenmu offers some great knives for very cheap, and they're quality too. Take for example the 7010 model - fabulous knife at a quarter of the price. Yes, they're Chinese made, like the value Spydercos, and I've heard though haven't confirmed, that Sunrenmu is the company cranking out the Spyderci value line. I'm keeping my Spyderco, but anyone really on a budget might want to look into other options.

Looks like a wonderful gift.
This is my first "SPYDERCO" purchase. I bought it as a Christmas gift, therefore I haven't used it. I was very impressed with the spyderco product. Also the Knife Center made sure ,the knife arrived in a timely fashion.

So i'm a knife collector in the early stage... I thought the spydercos looks cool and i wanted to have one for my collection so i bought this one becouse it is very cheap compared to other spyders... This knife feels very good in the hand and has very good quality! It was a little stiff to open in the beginning but after a while it came open very easily I was very eager to get this knife and had high expectations, but it was even better than i thought! Supergood knife highly Recommended!
