Spyderco InsistentThe Spyderco Insistent is a well-made, budget friendly linerlock you can pick up for about $40. The design of this knife is basically a scaled version of the Efficient. Spyderco tells us the Efficient, “…inspired demand for a smaller ‘gentleman’s’ version that carries even more discreetly. The answer to that calling is the Insistent….”

The broad 2.48” 8Cr13MoV drop point has a full-flat grind and a satin finish. It opens with Spyderco’s trademark Round Hole. There’s a smooth index-finger choil so you can comfortably choke up on the knife while maintaining control during fine detail work.

The durable and slip resistant G-10 handles are contoured for comfort and mounted on skeletonized stainless-steel liners. It weighs a mere 3.7 ounces, making it both slacks and shorts friendly. It has a contoured recess at the linerlock for easy indexing and an ambidextrous, tip-up pocket clip and lined lanyard hole.
