The original Persistence is a proud member of Spyderco’s Value Series of folders and ounce-for-ounce one of the best buys on the knife market. The new Persistence Lightweight takes this pocket-friendly design to the next level by swapping the original G-10 scales for injection-molded fiberglass-reinforced nylon (FRN). FRN scales reduce the knife’s weight by almost 10 percent and add the enhanced non-slip grip of a Bi-Directional Texture pattern. All other features are faithfully consistent with the original, including an 8Cr13MoV blade, full stainless steel liners, a LinerLock mechanism, and a fourposition pocket clip. It is also available with a choice of PlainEdge or CombinationEdge™.
