SP136GP: Persistence

Depending whom you ask, Persistence means different things to different people. It means continuing without veering off course or changing function or structure. It describes ongoing existence regardless of interference or challenges. Some even say persistent personalities experience déjà vu more frequently due to their repetitive drive. We thought it a great name for a knife as it also means steadfastness and never-give-up-attitude. Spyderco’s C136 Persistence is the smaller version of the Tenacious Model, another reliable descriptive of human nature. We milled the black G-10 laminate handle with prolonged fatigue-free cutting in mind. Comfort in hand means easier use long-term. Skeletonized steel liners tucked inside the handle, increase the handle’s rigidity and strength level without adding non-functional weight or bulkiness. The 8Cr13MoV stainless blade is a modified skinning-style, ground-flat. Careful positioning of the oversized Spyderco Round Hole, relative to the location of the pivot, pre-set the hand in just the right spot for fumble-free one-hand blade open/close. Fully sharpened edge from tip to tang generates the most cutting edge possible for the blade’s length. A 4-way pocket clip lets the folder set tip-up/tip-down left-hand/right-hand. Walker Linerlock has a jimped liner. Screw together construction.

Handy little EDC.
This is a nice little knife. It is my first Spyderco. I would strongly consider purchasing another Spyderco.

Good Blade
I just picked this knife up after reading quite a bit about it. For the price, you cant beat it (around $40.00). Easy to open, blade was sharp out of the box, pretty descent quality (fit/finish) and good lock up. This knife reminds me of my Spyderco Native which cost about twice as much. I like to carry my knife tip up which is an easy adjustment on this knife and I also like to add a leather landyard which is also an easy add on. I will say that this knife is a bit heavier than the Native but thats due to the still liners and G10 scales (no big deal). The pocket clip is tight and needs a little work, once again no big deal. Overall, good blade, good price point and its a Spyderco. Peace

Great EDC knife
Bought this as an EDC knife for daily chores. As i live in the UK, i needed a blade less than 3" to stay within the law. We are also prohibited from carrying a locking blade in public, so I have now modified this Spyderco to operate as a slip joint. It has a lovely blade shape which deploys easily using the oversize thumbhole. The knife was reasonably sharp out of the box, but a few strokes on the waterstone brought it up to standard. The blade steel, while not very high quality, is perfectly good and to be expected on a knife in this price bracket. The knife feels good in the hand - the scales have a high friction finish making it feel very secure. The pocket clip has 4 possible positions for those who like to fine tune their carry options. Overall, a great little knife, but not my favourite. My last purchase was an American made Kershaw Skyline which is an awesome knife. When compared to this, the Chinese made Spyderco falls behind in build quality - at least in my opinion. But don't let that put you off. The Persistence is a superb little knife for the price and purpose and I'm really pleased with it.
