This exclusive version of the iconic Spyderco Tenacious is like a mirage in the desert.
It features a 3.39-inch plain edge blade made of 8Cr13MoV stainless steel, which is a durable and corrosion-resistant material that can handle a variety of cutting tasks. The blade has a full-flat grind for a low-friction cutting edge and a satin finish for a sleek look. The blade can be easily opened with the thumb hole, which is a signature feature of Spyderco knives.
The handle of the knife is made of fiberglass-reinforced nylon (FRN), which is a lightweight and tough material that provides a secure grip. The handle scales have a bi-directional texture pattern that enhances the traction and prevents slipping. The handle also has a liner lock mechanism that locks the blade in place when opened and allows for easy one-handed closing. The handle has a tan color that matches the desert environment and gives the knife a unique appearance.
The knife also has a four-way reversible pocket clip that can be attached to either side of the handle and in either tip-up or tip-down orientation. This allows the user to carry the knife in the most comfortable and convenient way. The knife also has a lanyard hole for additional carry options.
The Spyderco Tenacious in Desert Tan is a versatile and reliable knife that can handle any challenge.

Quick! List the most respected and innovative knife companies you can think of. If you know anything about knives, Spyderco is somewhere near the top. Spyderco Inc. makes some of the most unique and downright bizarre knife designs you'll see on the market, but from the number of passionate fans discussing, debating, and learning everything they can about Spyderco knives, it's clear that the company has done something right.
From the Glesser Family and the Spyderco Crew:
Since starting Spyderco we've been told our knives are different, peculiar, even out there. All true. Thinking beyond established knife industry barriers allowed us to introduce new and radical innovations to the knife culture including: One-hand opening, serrations on a folder and a clip to attach a knife to a pocket.
We didn't go into business to rake in a mountain of dough we're here for more selfish reasons- indulging our passion for creating knives. Spyderco is definitely out of the norm in the knife industry in our dedication to researching and developing fresh, improved and better performing materials all with function and reliability being key.
Someone once said to Sal Glesser, Spyderco's owner, 'You must design in the dark because your knives look so strange.' True again. Our recognizable appearance is a result of designing ergonomic functional tools rather than applying lipstick and nylons to a pocketknife. We may look curious, homely, whatever, but we'll never be called unusable or undependable.
Making knives that consistently deliver reliable high-performance requires an ongoing commitment to testing. In our million-dollar testing facility we examine edge retention with a CATRA machine, look for rust development with Q-FOG, check the force needed to open and close a knife. We also repeatedly test for stress, wear, optimal heat-treating and actively search for higher quality, performance enhancing steels and materials.
As a customer you probably don't think about this, or much care, but it allows us to put forth a promise. When you purchase a Spyderco you are buying a high-quality reliable cutting tool designed and manufactured for peak performance and ergonomic comfort. Those Who Know Carry Spyderco.
