    I searched and couldn't find a thread dedicated to just the Endura. It's one of my favorite Spyderco platforms and have always had one of some flavor for 20 years now. This knife slices like nobody's business. In the right steel, I'd put it up against knives costing 4-5 times as much, in a cutting contest! Great blade length and profile, lightweight, slim and carries like nothing in the pocket!

    If you love the Endura, post em up here! I'll start...

    I’ve had a few over the years, but this is the only one I have now. I’m a sucker for orange, and that Hap40 has been fantastic. Responds well to stropping, easy to sharpen, holds an edge a very long time.



    Perfect for office carry. :D;)

    The Endura, Military, Manix, PM2 and Delica are my top Spyderco models!

    Sounds like you need to try an Endela! IMO, it’s the perfect Japanese FRN Spyderco! I’ve carried one almost every day since receiving and can’t wait for some sprints and exclusives to start dropping!

    It looks like a knife I would love, but I'll wait til they come out in something other than VG10, not that there's anything wrong with VG10...

    I’m a late to the Endura party but carry one now more than any of my 15-20 Spydercos. What a great model. 0480484D-6641-48CD-985F-5A4055B01221.jpeg

    The Ti version is the only Endura I haven't tried yet, mainly because folks are saying it's pretty slick.

    With Spyderco’s ergos, it locks in really well. I like how thin it is.

    91 Bravo,

    Great photos, thanks for starting this thread.

    I have a nice collection of Military, PM2 and Para 3 however, the most carried are Endura and Delica.

    The edges on those pictured knives are incredible. I wish I could do that.

    My first spyderco was a Centofante III. My second Spyderco was an Endura combo edge. I must say I kind of force myself to carry it because I certainly dislike the combo edge. Besides, being saber ground, it doesn't slice much. The stout point is the only plus I can find on it. I find myself carrying muc more the Stretch I bought on the exchange long ago. Same FRN scales, much slicier and plain edge.

    HOWEVER I would like to try a full flat ground Endura. I expect it to be a much better cutter...
