Specifications: Being tenacious means one holds fast. One is persistent and cohesive. It means being tough and tireless until achieving your goal: all knife-worthy definitions for a worthy knife. The mid-sized Tenacious has a black G-10 laminate handle, milled with prolonged fatigue-free cutting in mind. Tucked inside are skeletonized steel liners increasing the handle's rigidity and strength without adding non-functioning weight or bulky thickness.
Designed by renowned Polish custom knifemaker Marcin Slysz, the Spydiechef is an extremely refined folding knife that takes the user-friendly ergonomics and balance of a world-class chef’s knife and translates them into an all-purpose, everyday-carry folder that is impervious to the elements. A proud member of Spyderco’s Salt Series™ of ultra-corrosion-resistant knives, the Spydiechef features a gracefully curved blade crafted from LC200N. This state-of-the-art nitrogen-based alloy is extremely corrosion resistant and is actually used by NASA for the ball bearings used in aerospace applications. The blade’s broad profile and full-flat grind create exceptional edge geometry that ensures precise, low-friction cutting performance.
To reduce weight, optimize balance, and simplify cleaning, the Spydiechef features an open-backed handle constructed with two precision-machined solid titanium scales. The reverse-side scale houses a stout Reeve Integral Lock (R.I.L.) mechanism that locks the blade firmly open when in use. For additional security when working around water, the handle also includes a lined lanyard hole for easy attachment of safety lines and lanyards and a reversible deep-pocket wire clip for convenient, ambidextrous carry and quick tip-up access.
The Polestar’s lightweight, ergonomic, open-backed handle features full, skeletonized stainless steel liners that provide outstanding structural strength and form the foundation of a stout LinerLock mechanism. To ensure a secure, hand-filling grip, the liners are capped with non-slip, textured gray G-10 scales. A strategically placed relief cut in the obverse side scale allows easy release of the lock mechanism and makes the one-handed operation of the knife simple and intuitive. The handle also includes a four-position hourglass clip with a broad, triangular base that offers a choice of tip-up or tip-down carry on either side of the body.
Boasting all the defining qualities of a Spyderco knife in a wallet-friendly package, the Polestar sets a new standard in affordable high performance.
