The Spyderco Persistence Lightweight combined the compact size and proven features of this time-tested design with the weight-saving advantages of injection-molded fiberglass-reinforced-nylon (FRN) scales. This version takes that evolution a step further, supercharging its performance with American-made CPM S35VN blade steel. The unique chemistry of this steel promotes the formation of niobium carbides along with vanadium and chromium carbides, enhancing its toughness without sacrificing wear resistance. The full-flat-ground blade of this knife is available in all three edge configurations and is paired with a handle featuring bright blue FRN scales, non-slip Bi-Directional Texturing, a sturdy LinerLock mechanism, and a versatile four-position pocket clip.
** Knife is as pictured but with a partially serrated combination edge.
