Interesting knife but I fucking hate FRN and plastic.

I have the normal version.

As well as the Resilience. That knife is bad fucking ass.

It is ok, but I’ll not trade my Naja for one. For the money, one can do better in the Chinese builds, CJRB, etc. $50 is now the realm of D2. I like Sandvik better than 8crmov13.

Meeeh, I prefer my buck 840 over this guy at the price point… There are better values out there than the sprint, but the sprint seems better than this guy.

The Tenacious is my favorite affordable knife so I'm happy to see a review for the LW version. I wish they would make make a run of it with really high grade materials. It does need sharpened often.

Tenacious was in fact, the knife that started my journey into knife collecting! I love me some spyderco!

It's only 0.4 ounces lighter than the original and I honestly hated the original. The ergos didn't suit my large hands. Crappy g10 and a slow action with over aggressive jimping and 8CR13MOV steel. Byrd Raven 2 is SIGNIFICANTLY better in almost every way.

I’m sitting on a sog trident elite with a pretty uncommon serration and satin blade combo, and non tanto. I bought it, but I don’t want it, never used it. I do want some custom scales for my spyderco tenacious. I’m offering a never been used sog trident elite, for some spyderco tenacious scales. If you are interested, reply and we can find a way to dm and set up the trade.
