Sized to split the difference between the iconic Endura and Delica models, the Endela has all the refined, time-tested features of both models in a "just right" size format. The fully flat ground blade delivers excellent cutting performance for daily use with ambidextrous RoundHole opening. Skeletonized stainless liners and a sturdy back lock give this working knife a rugged build, with lightweight textured FRN scales for a secure grip. This version comes with a plain edge Wharncliffe blade and black FRN handles.

Brand new, direct from Spyderco.

Blade: The powerful straightedge Wharncliffe blade comes in a high performance full flat grind with a clean slicing plain cutting edge. Wharncliffe blades provide scalpel precision and powerful slicing from heel to tip, making it ideal for utility and defense. Rugged bronze washers at the pivot allow smooth operation via the one-hand operation RoundHole. A jimped thumb ramp offers added traction for control in heavy and fine work.

Handle: Bi-directional textured FRN delivers exceptional traction in all conditions with a comfortable, ergonomic design and over 4.5 inches of grip area. The sturdy mid-back lock supplies secure operation, further enhanced by the Boye Dent on the lock bar to prevent accidental disengagement of the lock when gripping with heavy pressure.

Carries via a 4-position stainless-steel hourglass pocket clip.

VG10: Japanese Takefu VG10 is a high-carbon stainless steel that takes a fine edge and holds it well. Often hardened to 60-61 HRC in high-end kitchen knives, edge retention and toughness are on par with 440C with better corrosion resistance. A solid choice for small pocket knives, an acute, high polished edge delivers optimal slicing performance.
