Tenacious Full Review

Postby vivi » Mon Jan 28, 2008 12:09 am

Well, I was working on writing this today and accidentally posted it before it was done. Still contains a nice chunk of information though. It's missing the most important part, the steel performance, because I'm still doing some last minute comparisons with CPMD2 and S30V on extended cardboard cutting and I haven't uploaded any photos yet either. It'll become more complete over the next few days. Enjoy.

Very nice review! :D

I'm sure you'll win over some people who are on the fence about this one with your informative thoughts. :cool:

:spyder: I just got my tenacious today. I'm gonna carry mine left handed as the BG-42 millie refuses to budge outta my strong side right pocket. After switching the clip to left side tip-up I was pleased to find the thumb guide on the now exposed slab. Also, I can unlock the knife with my left index finger forwarn on the lock and drop the blade so that the kick hits my finger instead of the live edge much the same as can be done with a cento 4 or Yojimbo.

The knife did not arrive Golden or Seki sharp but it tuned up nicely on the sharpmaker. I'm not sure how well the 8Cr13MoV will retain its edge (or really care as this knife will be carried for protection) but it did gunk up the sharpmaker rods much more readily than the other common Spydie steels.

Seems like a great knife for the money! :spyder:

I like your review, I wish I could write one as well as you.
The knife looks like one I would like. The blade shape especially is good for me(not too pointy) for a blade that size.
Thank you.
SCARAMOUCHE! :spyder:

Belatedly, but I should mention that this very review (on BF) inspired me to buy two of them to give away to friends.
Am looking forward to handling them first though :rolleyes:

Thanks for the review. The Tenacious is a classic example of a Spydie: functionality and affordability alltogether. It is well thought and made and it's not looking bad at all.

Asked this in the clones. I just ordered a Tenacious online. It is one of the dullest knives I've bought (esp. for the price). Have others that have bought the Tenacious received it dull (or am I just lucky or have a clone)? Thanks.

+1 on Tenacious being sharp...shaved right out of the box.

Link to above review not working for me.

ETA: just realized link is 2+ years old.
