So dudes, without further ado, I give you the Spyderco Endura 4 (4th gen Enduro) pocket knife. I know some of you are not sailors, but perhaps you enjoy camping or other outdoor activities, so I figured this might have some general appeal.
Size: This is a big folder (3.75 in. blade, 5 in. closed) but it sure doesn't feel big when you're carrying it. This is partially due to the Endura's light weight, but for me it's the flatness that really counts. It's only 3/8 in. thick, which is amazingly thin considering the handle has stainless steel liners built in for strength. This knife practically disappears in your pocket. Excellent pocket clip design too, I might add.
Weight: 3.6 ounces. Impressive for a knife of this size with stainless liners in the handle.
Corrosion resistance: The Endura's VG-10 steel is among the more rust resistant of the premium knife steels on the market. It's a Japanese made steel developed for culinary use, popular in high-end chef's knives. I wouldn't put it away wet after heavy exposure to ocean salt, but a quick rinse with some fresh water is all the maintenance it will need in extreme situations.
Cutting performance: This is the sharpest out-of-the-box pocket knife I've ever owned. Scary sharp. It will shave hairs right down to the skin. VG-10 steel has a fine carbide structure so it will take and hold a very keen edge.Read more ›
The first knife I bought was a Snap-On folder. I'm an avid mechanic and have a lot of respect for Snap-On tools, and so when I saw it for a good price at my favorite parts store, I grabbed it. The problems began almost immediately. When it was new it wouldn't lock every time, although I managed to tinker it into submission. Then it started falling apart. First one of the opening studs disappeared, then the pocket clip fell off, and then the knife itself began to come apart. Clearly, Snap-On didn't know anything about knives, so my hunt resumed.
My next knife was a Smith and Wesson "Extreme Ops" SWA3 folder, and while it was altogether better than the Snap-On it still left a bit to be desired (although it looks really cool). Despite only light use in a period of about 4 months, the finish is largely coming off and the pocket clip has fallen off this one as well. Generally the knife itself has performed well, but it's a little short for my intended POU (utility/tertiary tactical) and also kind of heavy for what it is.
And that brings us to the item in question, the Spyderco Endura 4. Mine is black with a plain saber edge (as opposed to FFG) blade. I should say that, having never physically seen an Endura before I relied heavily on a good friend who has what you might call an "Endura 1".Read more ›
I feel that the knife is the ultimate in design and execution because it opens very quickly and with a very assuring snap of blade on liner that inspires confidence. No matter which way you hold the handle - reverse edge-in or reverse edge-out, it feels like the blade was designed to be held that way. Even closed, when you clutch the knife in the palm of your hand it seems that the knife was designed to be a kaban of sort. I think that as a self defense weapon, it is discreet enough that if the user were trained to use kabans, the blade itself would never have to be deployed. I don't think I would ever deploy it in violence - it is a nasty piece of metal that would do unremittant damage in some Folsom prison sense that I would never want to be a part of. Visually the thing will inspire anxiety, but I never get the impression that the knife was built for aggression. It simply seems that if you want a large 4 inch pocket knife, one hand open, thin and lightweight, of a high quality steel that the Endura would be the natural outcome.Read more ›
