SP216GP: C216GP Efficient
The Efficient is the latest addition to Spyderco's popular Value Folder family of affordably priced full-service folding knives. Its compact, ergonomic design centers around a full-flat-ground drop point blade made from 8Cr13MoV stainless steel. The broad plain edge blade features an index finger choil and a gently curved spine that flows seamlessly into a handle built with full, skeletonized stainless steel liners, textured G10 scales, and a stainless steel back spacer. The handle's liners form the foundation of a sturdy liner lock mechanism that locks the blade securely open, yet allows easy one-handed release. To ensure convenient, ambidextrous carry and easy access, the Efficient comes complete with a reversible hourglass clip configured for tip-up carry.

Pros: Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness, Handle Feel, Weight, Lock Type, Ease of Opening, None
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.
