Information from the Spyderco catalog on the web

"Tenacious, Persistence, Resilience, and Ambitious are qualities we aspire to when facing challenges. These traits are revered at Spyderco and why we named our line of Value Folders after them.

Our goal is to offer affordable folders with five-star features: G-10 handles, Walker LinerLocks, jimping, lined lanyard holes and skeletonized full-length internal liners.

Feature-for-feature, dollar-for-dollar, performance-for performance, Spyderco Value Folders represent a best buy in the knife industry and the answer to acquiring Spyderco innovation and quality on a budget.

The Ambitious is a small, palm-sized workhorse offering big performance in a compact package."[1]
