When Spyderco first released the Tenacious all those years ago, the knife world was shook. How could a company offer a knife whose value vastly outnumbered the cost?
Buoyed by the success of the Tenacious, the company released three more models in the budget folder family, including our latest Badass Knife of the Week, the Persistence.
The Persistence is another worthy entry into the budget line offered by Spyderco, proving once again that you don’t have to break the bank for a reliable everyday carry.

My Spyderco Persistence, a trooper of a knife and my favorite EDC. Always happy to put it in my pocket. @spyderco_inc #spyderco #spydercopersistence #knifesofinstagram #knivesofinsta #knifestagram #foldingknife #knife #edc #everydaycarry #knifeaddiction #knifeaddict #spydercoknives #spydiehole #knifeworld #knives #knivescollection #stainlesssteel #folder #paracord #fullflatgrind #edcdump #odgreen #g10 #reallifeknives
Unlike the larger Tenacious, the Persistence packs its value in a smaller package that is much more conducive to everyday life.
The 2.75-inch blade is shorter than the 3.39-inch blade of the Tenacious. Coming in at under three inches, the blade is legal in most places and cuts down on the overall weight. But if you think the knife is too small to do anything, think again.
With the same budget 8Cr13MoV stainless steel as the Tenacious, the leaf-shaped blade can be worked hard without fear of failure.
The iconic Spyderco Round Hole has been refined to perfection, easily opening without fail with either hand.
The gently curved handle is made using skeletonized steel liners covered by black G-10 scales, providing enough texture and ergonomics for a comfortable grip.
To keep your carry options open, the spoon-style clip can be moved to four different positions.
When it comes to a small, budget knife for EDC, opt for the Persistence.
