Spyderco 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. Spyderco thought it would be a great name for a knife as it also means steadfastness and never-give-up-attitude. Spyderco’s Persistence is the smaller version of the Tenacious Model, another reliable descriptive of human nature.


Spyderco 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 strength level without adding non-functional weight or bulkiness. The 8Cr13MoV stainless blade is a modified skinning-style, flat-grind. 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.

    Very sharp and great solid lockup, very little blade play and very easy to sharpen. a great EDC while camping or for general use around the house

    Posted by Woodhead on 10th Jan 2017

    I was bought this as a Christmas Present, and it was my first Spyderco, I was told they are the best folders on the market, but had my doubts about the budget range. WOW what a knife, its razor sharp OTB and only needs stropping every now and then it keep it that way. I've used this for camping, food prep, opening letters and destroying boxes and it has produced excellent results very time, its easy to clean and fits nicely in my hand, great one hand opening and closing with a great blade and belly for slicing and dicing tasks. I highly recommend this knife as a starter or beater knife, it will last you years so is well worth the money and any time you spend cleaning and sharpening it. Great Service from HH once again.

    Great every day folder. I use the persistence on my farm daily! the build quality is phenomenal and has stood up well to relentless use...only thing I can pick up on is I have to sharpen it quite a lot but then again it is what it is steel wise and I'm from butchering stock so a few swipes on my steel and it's back to razor.

    Entry level Spyderco.....they get addictive

    Posted by Ryan on 11th Nov 2016

    My first non keyring sized Spyderco. I was mighty impressed when i first got it, value for money it really is excellent. Down side, its a gateway Spyderco that will lead you down the path to even better models. Sold mine on as i upgraded, still have fond memories of that knife.

    Very impressed

    Posted by BIGJOHNCOFFEY on 27th Feb 2016

    This is a fantastic knife! If you have used any other knife in this line you will know just how great the build quality is. I now own the tenacious, the persistence and the ambitious. They are by far my most favorite knifes in my collection. No other knife comes close in terms of ease of use, ergonomics and strength and build quality. Also with the range of sizes I honestly don't think there is a better selection of folding knifes out there at this price. All I can say is get one or get them all as you will not be dissapointed!

    Usual top class service from Heinnie Haynes. They just can't be beat for service and in my opinion and are the only company to shop with when buying knifes!

    How much!

    Posted by Sam on 27th Dec 2015

    I bought this knife over a year ago for my dad as a EDC. The size is great, it's got G10 scales that feel really good in your hand and the blade came nice and sharp with plenty of depth on it to work with. If you are looking for a EDC that ticks all the boxes for under £40 you found it...

    Gateway Spyderco

    Posted by Jim on 27th Dec 2015

    I usually carry traditional folders or Opinels as daily users, but in the past couple of weeks I've treated myself to some early Christmas presents and splurged on several new blades from Heinnie's. Super impressed that their legendary delivery service seems to operate just as efficiently even in the run up to Christmas. I really don't know how they do it!

    Anyway, one of the blades I chose was a Spyderco Persistence. My first Spyderco and as soon as I got it out of the packaging I immediately understood what all the fuss was about with these knives. The initial impression is that this is going to be robust and dependable. The blade is broader than I expected across the spine, nicely finished with an even grind and shaving sharp out of the box. The 'spyder hole' took a bit of getting used to but now this thing positively flies out of the handle. The lock engages with a satisfying click and, once it has done so, everything is rock solid without any hint of blade play. Then there's the handle. The G10 feels great and the ergonomics are just a perfect for me, making the knife feel like a true extension of the hand. It's just awesome. I also love the combination of the jimping and thumb ramp, which give additional security and control.

    A well designed tool is a pleasure to use. If you need evidence to support this then you need look no further than the Persistence. Needless to say, I am already calculating on my next Spyderco acquisition and I can only imagine what some of their pricier offerings must be like in terms of design and manufacture. In the meantime, I am very happy with this knife.

    No-brainer

    Posted by Erik on 2nd Jul 2015

    This is an excellent EDC indeed! The Tenacious being quite big in your pocket and the
    Ambitious equipped with a small blade makes the Persistence the obvious choice.
    It feels just right in your hand , the grip is beyond expectation.
    You might complain about the finish of the Spyderco hole in the blade, but that would not be fair for this price. The blade itself is perfectly centered and is sharp right out of the box. However, sharpness can be improved with the Spyderco Sharpmaker.
    The overall quality is exceptionally good for this price. The more expensive Spyderco's
    will offer a better finish and higher quality steel, but for EDC purposes not really of any relevance in my opinion.
    My usual supplier in the Netherlands did not have the Persistence in his catalogue, but luckily HH could help me out and also for a decent price level.
    The Persistence, an absolute No-Brainer!!

    Really impressed with the build quality of this knife, looks and feels like an expensive folder, but no dent in the wallet.

    Posted by Garrett on 14th Feb 2014

    I was dead set on a Tenacious but at the last second I saw a review and felt a Persistence would be a better fit. Delighted I did because this is PLENTY of knife for me. Super solid construction, no blade play, feels bulletproof. I thought this might replace my Kershaw Chill as my EDC but It's a bit big and intimidating imo. I'll just use it in work where I know it will eat up any abuse I throw at it. Great service as usual from HH, thanks!
