At, we understand that quality and performance are paramount when it comes to knives. For over 40 years, Spyderco has been dedicated to crafting cutting-edge tools that meet the highest standards. Recognizing that everyone starts somewhere on their knife journey, Spyderco introduced their Value Folders to provide entry-level options without compromising on quality.

Designed to showcase the hallmark features of Spyderco's renowned CLIP-IT knives, the Value Folders offer budget-friendly alternatives for novice users.


These knives feature Spyderco's trademark Round Hole for swift, ambidextrous opening, a convenient pocket clip for easy carry, and exceptional edge geometry for enhanced cutting performance. By experiencing these features firsthand, users can develop an appreciation for quality craftsmanship and become well-versed knife enthusiasts.


The flagship of the Value Folder family is the Tenacious, renowned for its full-flat-ground 8Cr13MoV blade, sturdy LinerLock mechanism, and peel-ply-textured G10 scales. However, for those seeking a more compact option, Spyderco introduced the Persistence. About 11% smaller than the Tenacious, the Persistence offers the same convenience and versatility in a smaller package, making it ideal for users with smaller hands or legal restrictions on blade length.


In addition to the original G10-handled version, Spyderco now offers the Persistence Lightweight with injection-molded fiberglass-reinforced-nylon (FRN) scales. This lightweight version reduces overall weight by almost 10% while maintaining the same high standards of performance. Available in a variety of edge configurations, including PlainEdge, CombinationEdge, and SpyderEdge, the Persistence Lightweight caters to a wide range of preferences.


For tactical users and those who prefer a sleek, all-black design, Spyderco offers the Persistence Lightweight in an all-black version with a black oxide blade coating and black-coated liners and hardware.
