When they first came out, I bought an Endura and a Delica. I bought two as I am in neeed of an under 3" blade for some areas to which I go. While the blades and handles were fine, I had problems with the plastic clip bending. After I had lost 2 or 3 Delicas, I gave up and ordered a Terzuola Jr. I still love it, but a lost one would be so expensive to replace, let alone the larger model. I have recently purchased the new Delica and Endura '98 models and I am most pleased with them. I do like clips and the metal ones that they now have are excellent. The quality is everything that I have come to expect from Spyderco and the ATS55 steel in the blades appears to be a very good choice.
