Persistence Lightweight Black Combo Edge
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.
For tactical end users concerned with light discipline and those who simply prefer the no-nonsense look of a black blade, this version of the Persistence Lightweight cloaks the 8Cr13MoV blade in a stealthy black oxide coating. Consistent with that theme, the knife’s Bi-Directional Textured FRN scales are also black and the handle’s hardware, full stainless steel liners, and four-position pocket clip also sport nonreflective black coatings.
