Back in 1980, the original Spyderco Endura blazed a trail as one of the first lightweight clip-carry folding knives. Today it still remains as one of Spyderco's most popular models and continues to set the standard for all other knives of its breed. Now in its 4th generation, it has also inspired a broad range of variations to meet virtually every user’s needs and preferences.
Featuring skeletonized stainless steel liners and injection-molded fiberglass-reinforced-nylon (FRN) handles, this specific version includes a stout saber-ground VG-10 stainless steel blade with a partially serrated CombinationEdge™ and low-profile black titanium carbonitride (TiCN) coating. The blade is supported by a sturdy back lock mechanism that locks it securely open when in use and allows easy ambidextrous lock release. Bi-Directional Texturing™ on the handle ensures a positive grip in even the most demanding conditions and its four-position pocket clip can be easily configured for tip-up or tip-down carry on either side of the body. Like the blade, the knife’s clip, lock bar, and other metal hardware all feature a stealthy, non-reflective black coating.
