Spyderco Value Series

Spyderco Value Series

One of our favourite series of knives that we offer are from the Spyderco value series, but make no mistake “value” doesn't mean cheap. These every day carry (EDC) knives offer some of the best value for the dollar on the market today. I'm talking about Spyderco's Tenacious, Persistence, Resilience and Ambitious.

This series of knives uses 8Cr13MoV steel for its blades giving them the ability to take a very sharp edge with decent retention. The handle scales are made from G-10 backed with steel liners making them very solid. Paired with the composite scales these rigid knives have very little blade play even under considerable force.
