SP122GBBKP: C122GBBKP Tenacious Black Blade
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.

Excellent Work Knife
When you're buying a knife in the $30-$50 range you generally know what to expect, but of course, with Spyderco we can reasonably expect no less than the best in class. And that's exactly what you get with the Tenacious. The blade is no super steel to be sure, but Spyderco's excellent heat treatment makes up for the cheaper steel big time, so that you're getting a more durable blade that will hold its edge longer than the same steel from another manufacturer. And the shape of the blade is such that it's both a dream to work with and a breeze to sharpen. The jimping on the spine hump is a nice touch that really helps with the harder cutting tasks. A nice little bonus I've found too is that, although the knife isn't technically a flipper, if I hold the knife with four fingers and put my thumb in the top of the Spyderhole and flick straight up, the blade flies out very satisfyingly. The handle is extremely comfortable and easy to hang on to even when wet, and the pocket clip, which can be positioned for right or left, tip up or tip down, does it's job nicely and fits unobtrusively into your hand when cutting. This is my go-to work knife as I have a job that can get very dirty very fast, and I need a knife that will take it all and ask for more but won't mean a loss of $100 - $300 dollars if it goes missing. If that's what you need, BUY IT NOW. This is absolutely a five star knife for its class, and you won't find better.
