  1. Amazing knife, but has a downside. I just got my Tenacious today, I don’t have any long-term results yet so I will update as necessary. However I like this knife so much I felt the need to write down a review for it ASAP.First off, WOW! I am blown away at the amazing knife I got for only $32. I did a lot of looking around, reading reviews, checking out hundreds of youtube vids (big thanks to nutnfancy and cutlerylover for the wonderful knife reviews and insight!) and I figured I should give the Tenacious a try due to all the rave it gets around the net. I will say this, those rave reviews are not inaccurate! This thing is simply a LOT of knife with top notch quality for a unbelievable price. There is a few downsides though, one in particular with has soured the excellent experience I have had thus far, but overall the tenacious is worth well over the ~$30 it sells for. In fact this knife could easily sell at two or three times its cost and still be worth it (would need better steel at a higher price point though).But anyway, here is the pro/con breakdown.Pro:- Cheap, cheap, cheap! ~$30 is the kind of knife you will actually use and not worry about beating up. Doesn’t really matter if you lose/break it, sure it will stink, but for $30 you won’t lose much sleep over it.- Great lockup. Out of the box the Tenacious had ZERO blade play in either direction, and even after flipping it open with great authority all day long (and I really mean whipping it open hard) it still locks up TIGHT! The liner lock is also rock solid, and I can’t imagine it failing under normal (or even beyond normal) usage of the knife.- Loving the Spydie thumb hole! If you are used to thumb studs, this will take some getting used to, but once you get the motion down you really start to love that thumb hole. In fact I now prefer the Spydie hole over a thumb stud, much easier to use and doesn’t turn the tip of your thumb into a well tenderized piece of meat like the studs do.- Relatively lightweight. I personally don’t mind a heavier blade (I EDCed a original Cold Steel Recon 1 for almost 2 years) but this blade isn’t heavy at all. Weighing on my scale, it comes to 4.2oz (Recon 1 is 6.6oz). Not as light as something similarly sized like the SOG Aegis (3.2oz), but not a big deal for me at all. It is light enough to forget that it’s in your pocket, but feels solid in your hands. Also note that the steel liner in the handle is skeletonized.- Blade shape, style and size. Oh yes! Love that big bellied, plain edge, full flat grind, drop-point leaf style blade! I am telling you, this is a sizable blade! This isn’t a toothpick style blade like most other EDC blades from Spyderco, SOG, Benchmade etc etc, this thing is FAT and has authority. Of all the blades I researched within the $70 or less range, the only blades (that I could find) that are like this are the Tenacious, Resilience and the SOG Aegis. All the others generally are long and skinny type blades, and very seldom have a FFG.- Wonderful and practical jimping. The jimping on this blade is perfect, your thumb sits perfectly in the ramp and it holds your finger in place! The liner jimping is Ok, nothing special but it gets the job done when combined with the top blade jimping.- Feels great in hand. I love how this knife feels in my hand, not as good as the Aegis, but for what the Tenacious has it does very well. The knife feels solid and combined with the jimping you feel as if you have a very study grip on it. The handle is long enough for me that my pinky sits just about a 1/4 inch from the end. Very functional.- G10 handles baby! G10 is definitely one of my favorite handle materials, very strong and looks great. However I must say that the overall grip of the Tenacious G10 is actually pretty weak. It’s quite smooth, and is nothing like the G10 scales on a knife like the Recon 1. But the thing is, while the grip is not that grippy, it still feels great. Its got this smooth gritty texture that won’t dig up your skin or chew up your pants when you put it in your pocket, and honestly it feels very “cool”.- Great pocket clip tension. So far the Tenacious has had the best clip tension I have ever had in a pocket knife. It grips very well but is not too powerful, easy to put in your pocket and easy to take out. Plus it actually sits pretty low, so only as small part of the knife is exposed outside of your pocket. Granted it’s not as deep as a SOG clip, but its pretty close. Although I would have preferred the clip to be black.- Wonderfully smooth opening action. When I first unboxed the Tenacious it was pretty stiff, but that is not a bad thing. I know with some older Tenacious models the blade would have a tendency to pop out with very little movement. Seems like Spyderco fixed this as I was only able to get it to pop out by smacking the…
