The Spyderco Persistence is the second smallest knife in Spyderco’s budget folder line. It’s got a blade length of 2.75” blade and an overall length of 6.8” while open. It has a 4-way clip that can be positioned for left or right-handed carry and tip-up or tip-down carry. The blade has a very large hole positioned just right for quick opening. The G-10 grips and skeletonized liner keeps the knife relatively light. The blade was very sharp out of the box and seemed to keep a good edge for a while. The width of the Spyderco knife helps fill your hand very nicely and is easy to control. The knife locks with a liner-lock that is easily released with the thumb of your hand and (with care) allows you to close it one-handed. This is a great, inexpensive knife that I would recommend to anyone.
