Information from the Spyderco catalog on the web

"Spyderco's collection of Value Folders, are named after admirable human characteristics. Our economical Ambitious is smallest, slightly larger in size is the Persistence, the Tenacious is mid-sized, and our new Resilience the largest. All four folders offer a high level of cutting performance, materials, and construction for around the cost of a tank of gas.

The Resilience has a full-flat ground 8Cr13MoV stainless blade with a tip-to-handle cutting edge. Jimping cross-hatches the spine offering a slip-proof seat for the thumb while grasping and cutting. Black G-10 handle scales house skeletonized steel liners inside, a Michael Walker LinerLock, screw together construction and phosphor bronze washers around the pivot for smooth and resistance- free action. Hourglass stainless pocket clip is four-way compatible for tip-up/tip-down, left/right-hand carry.

Feature-for-feature, dollar-for-dollar, performance-for-performance the Resilience adds one more must-have best buy to the Spyderco line-up."[1]
