I was pleasantly surprised today when my Spyderco Persistence arrived at my doorstep and even more so when I opened the package. I expected it to be smaller and of a lower quality, considering it’s relatively cheap price of $32 shipped from http://yourcornerstore.com.
The quality is nothing short of amazing. It’s built with G-10 grips and the steel feels very hard and strong. It’s a blade designed for “EDC” (Every Day Carry) use. You can see it how the blade looks like when flipped open :
Blade retention is great. The blade is held in place after opening by the frame of the blade. The lock is solid and it’ll be rare for it to slip :
I love how the blade looks, fat, tough and not skinny. I can’t stand the slim line type of knives, just looks weak to me 🙂
