Named for its optimal use of space, the Spyderco Efficient offers a full-length grip without taking up too much room in the pocket. The Efficient is only four inches long when closed, but usable space increases when open thanks to an integrated finger choil in the blade, ensuring there is plenty of space for a full hand hold.

"Efficient" can also refer to this blade. The 8Cr13MoV drop point is versatile for everyday carry and easy to sharpen with respectable edge retention. The angle of the handle enables the point to be used with great precision, much like a good Wharncliffe blade but retains enough belly for efficient cutting. A full flat grind further increases the slicing abilities of the blade.

Spyderco's signature round opening hole easily swings the blade open from the textured G10 handle scales. Skeletonized liners and a solid metal backspacer impart plenty of strength to the structure of the knife and ensure the liner lock is nice and strong. A large lanyard hole and reversible, tip-up pocket clip add enough versatility to ensure both right and left-handers can easily carry the Efficient.

Cons: Pocket Clip
All rounder
The Efficient is a small, well thought-out EDC. For those with large ends, the knife fits your first three fingers with the pinky off the back. The handle is slim with enough grip for most uses. The blade at 3 inches handles most daily chores with ease. I find that I like the shape of the blade more then I thought I would. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a smaller EDC.

Good EDC knife
The thumb scrapes on the handle when you open the knife, that´s a little con. But overall great value for the price.

Pros: Ease of Opening, Handle Material, Handle Feel, Weight, Pocket Clip, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Sharpness
Cons: None
Already had the Persistence and the Tenacious, so I figured I would try this one and the Ambitious. Ambitious was perfect as usual, the Efficient showed a slight amount of lock drift, meaning that once you open it, you can push the liner lock a bit farther to the right. Still stops at about 50 percent and locks open good and tight with no blade play. For the price I can accept this,especially since I have had other knives that cost a lot more that were worse than this. would I buy it again? Yes I would. At this price I don't see this as a big deal, but still, it's the only one out of the four that I have that shows this, and it's probably not normal, but I still had to take off a star for it. Would still recommend it. Will be ordering the Resistance to complete my set soon. You can't really go wrong with any of these, although the Tenacious is still my favorite. Thanks to Knife Center for their as usual great service.
