SP220GPGY: C220GPGY Polestar
Designed for budget-conscious knife users who demand genuine Spyderco quality, the Polestar is one of the best values on the market. Its leaf-shaped plain edge blade is full-flat ground from American-made CTS BD1 stainless steel and features Spyderco's signature Trademark Round Hole for quick, ambidextrous, one-hand opening. The blade is paired with an ergonomic, lightweight, open-backed handle built with full, skeletonized stainless steel liners and textured gray G10 scales. A liner lock mechanism locks the blade securely open when in use, yet is easily released thanks to a strategically placed relief cut in the obverse side of the handle. A four-position hourglass clip with a broad, triangular base gives the choice of tip-up or tip-down carry the left or right side. If you're looking for the key qualities of a Spyderco knife in a value-friendly package, the Polestar is a winner.

Best China made yet
Use it daily. I know it's from China but it's as well built as American or Japanese. Blade is easily sharpened, great cutting shape and is American. If you want and entry level Spyderco you can't go wrong with this blade.

Nice improvment
I personally like it more then the tenacious in every aspect and was worth the extra cost for me. I use it for rough use edc, (I carry 2 edc, on occasion 3(fixed blade) as to save edge on nice edc for those gnarly cutting tasks. The bd1 seems to be a good jump in edge retention over the Chinese steel. Though I am leaning toward the alcyone for its size, but I like both models and is becoming one of my favorite no worries rough use edc folders. Sandvik is one of my favorite budget steels though the bd1 is giving it a run for it's money for me. I have 2 polestar's and 2 alcyone's and are consistent with each other in action, fit and finish. Yes you are paying a bit of a mark up for the name. (Thats life) For me it was worth it, And yes i am a big advocate of buying American made items, but other countries make very high quality stuff too, I will say most of my good budget stuff is foreign made (not fond of our American made budget knives) and a large portion of my high end stuff(production to custom) is American made, though the bd1 is becoming a favorite budget steel. Polestar is not perfect but a very good knife it is indeed imo. I like them all, from budget to meticulously hand made works of art.

Polestar vs Tenacious
I bought the Polestar thinking it was an upgrade over my Tenacious and it is. Barely. Fit and finish is same as the tenacious. Polestar handle has better ergos, shape and texture. Blades are same shape haven't sharpened the bd1 yet. Love the color and grip on the polestar. Worth 20 bucks more than the tenacious? Close call. This is one of my work edc knives so I don't cry if I tear it up.
