The Spyderco Tenacious Folding Knife. BUY IT NOW.

Sal Glesser founded Spyderco in Golden, Colorado in 1978 and went on to change the knife game. He took a well-made folder, added a clip, and put a hole in the blade. The clip-on pocket knife was born and Swiss Army knives everywhere were demoted to the sock drawer.

Today, Spyderco makes a long lineup of edged badassery from the Salt Series dive knives to sheepsfoot rescue blades, but maybe their best deal going is the $40 Tenacious folder. It’s available with a 3.39-inch plain edge, or a combination serrated 8CR13MOV steel blade and G-10 handles in a rainbow of optional colors. Closed, it measures 4.38 inches long and it weighs 4.2 ounces. Overall length is 7.76 inches. The knife carries very well for the size.

If you’re looking for a mid-sized folder and don’t want to break the bank, this one does it all. Just be warned: buying a Spyderco is a slippery slope. One is never enough.
