With that being said… man! 50$ for 8cr is a hike! This knife is old and r&d has been paid 10 times over! Give me some blade options! Maybe a tenacious 2 and drop the price of this one to 35-40$! Loading... This knife is almost $100 after tax and shipping in Canada. Kinda nuts :/ Loading... The g10 version was the gateway knife that started my knife addiction lol. Also a great knife to give as presents to my non knife addicted friends who always wanna see and play with whatever knife I’m carrying. Loading... Let's be honest; the rat spanks the tenacious completely Loading... 8cr13 is the one thing that is killing this knife for the non-walmart crowd. If they offered this in 9cr18 or BD-1 for $55, I'd buy it.And Tenacious FRN instead of Tenacious lightweight would be more accurate. It's still well over an ounce per inch. Loading... Just to inform everyone, THIS IS A UTILITY KNIFE, NOT A COMBAT KNIFE. I got into a situation where I had no choice but to stab the person attacking me. I had the knife in a reverse grip, and when I squeezed the handle the liner lock disengaged, I now have nerve damage done to my pinky and a gnarly infection that I will have to deal with. Though it would work as a last resort, I wouldn't rely upon it. Loading... If you want light weight ,i recommend the pacific salt h-1,great knife for under a hundred dollars Loading... I'm not sure how much of a selling point the spydie hole is. Us knife guys might like it, but every single non knife person I've talked to about it hates it; they find it ugly as sin Loading... This is a work knife. You don’t mind beating it up and what ever you throw at it it will take! Had mine for 2 years now and yes it’s edge retention Is poor nothing like my bug out but a sold knife 👌🏻 grate review as always 🤝 and I do pay more for my knifes as I am from the uk 🇬🇧 as well Loading... 3.6 ounces? My Supergold Endura is 3.24 ounces. Weird. Loading... if anyone's thinking about picking up the tenacious they should look at the Raven 2 from Spyderco Byrd line, it's almost the same knife with better steel. I had both and prefer the Raven 2. Loading... Seriously the liner lock thing is not a problem for lefties, I don’t know why you think it’s such a big problem, @Nick Shabazz Loading... I think that Spyderco are being left behind in this market space. There are plenty of brands offering higher quality at lower prices. $60ish is no longer "budget", especially for the materials they're using. Loading... The Tenacious is a gateway drug into the world of knife collection. I gave this away at a Christmas gift exchange to someone who wasn't into knives three years ago. His collection now makes me jealous! I wrote this as the video was running and Nick actually uses the term gateway at the end. Well played Shabazz… well played. Loading... Personally I’m not too keen on lightweight, I prefer weight, gives it a feel of quality in my opinion, I know that’s not necessarily true but that’s how I see it. Loading... First selling point? It's not another flipper. It's cheap. The steel isn't the best, but extremely easy to get a screaming edge. Loading... This knife is excellent as a first knife in another category as well: full-serrated folder. I have many folding knives, but I didn't have anything with a fully serrated blade, and the Tenacious is probably the cheapest there is from a respected brand. It definitely hasn't been a gateway into loading up on more serrated knives, but it's nice to be able to try it out relatively cheaply. Loading... The Tenacious was the first Spydie that I could middle finger flick. From there I learned to do my other 53 Spydercos. Loading... Civivi's bull mastiff is looking good right now. God help me. If I buy another knife it's going to be a Z Hunter. Loading... I've heard spyderco does a nice job on their 8cr13mov heat treat. I like sharpening or just stropping my knives up and don't mind the 8cr. It's a great knife for 45 dollars. I refuse to spend a lot of money on anymore new knives. I don't think it matters much considering how much any of us use our knives. My last expensive knives were made by spyderco. It was the Sage 5 lightweight. The stretch sprint run straight spine & 2 Delica's and 1 Endura. I collect GEC & spyderco mostly. My favorite that I carry everyday is the civivi little fiend. It's a great knife for 48 dollars and comes in D-2. It's light, strong and has zero hot spots for me. A perfect knife for working in the Vaseline factory. Loading... I would like different color scales on same knife! Loading... My "gateway spyderco" was a gray delica-4 exactly like yours. It was my first "good knife" that actually had a blade steel marking! Loading... Ontario Rats have better value Loading... Yo Nick. The title says "Full Review". Loading... Leave a Reply Cancel reply This site uses Akismet to reduce spam.
