    I've carried both on and off for years and years. Right now I've got a gray FFG Endura in my pocket. I like the way the Endura fills my hand, and I'm anticipating that it will be a fantastic camp cooking knife. It does seem a tiny bit thinner than the regular Endura.

    They were awful and I'll never buy from them again. Their website says that stuff is in stock, but often it isn't. When they are out of stock, they will charge your credit card right away, but you may not get your merchandise for two months or more. There's no notice of this practice that I could find on their site. This happened with BUIS for my AR-15 for ~$250. I sent a number of emails but only got an answer when they were about to ship 2 months later. They basically stole my money for two months. The great prices aren't worth the aggravation. Avoid them!!!

    BTW, I'm a major Spyderco fan. I have both the Delica 4 and Endura 4 in black FRN amongst a few others. I normally carry the Endura during my off time, but the Delica at work. DC has a 3" blade limit, which would be an issue if I had to go over there during the day. VA doesn't have a blade limit, so the Endura works fine here. Both are great knives - not fancy or exotic, but they work like champs.

    Stay away from botach. Yourcornerstore.com has the best prices I have seen so far. And they also carry the ffg versions. I bought mine from there a couple weeks ago.

    I use both with the Wave. Endura on the right and Delica on the left. Cheap man's Emerson Karambit I guess, LOL.

    My delica gen 4 frn adopted me for its daily ride tonight. I was cleaning it and the serrations kissed me. I like it.
    The Delica 4 straight edge is next on my list to buy.
    +1 Also thinking about a wave.

    One of the worst companies on the internet.

    If you are buying a knife, go to knifeworks or newgraham. They have great prices and service you can count on.

    I have big hands, so I have one of the larger Enduras stashed in my "Bug Out" bag, and the other in my tackle box.

    Doesn't that 3.5" limit just rub you the wrong way!!! I'm also in CO and I love my Spydie Police, but it is 4.125". I guess it's legal as long as it is clipped in view and I stay away from Denver.

    I love my Spydie Delica. I think it is the perfect size for EDC. If you have very large hands or need a larger knife the endura would be my choice.

    My EDC knife is the Spyderco Endura plain blade. Love it..
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    I have a VG-10 flat ground Endura with grey handles that just may be my favorite knife. It may be a little large to carry in some areas, but it is a very handy blade to have on you.

    This is a fantastic blade, all my expectations for this blade were met. The metal is fantastic, I've had it for more than two months and it is still as sharp as the day I purchased it, and I have no reason to believe it will dull any time in soon. The FRN handle seamless comfort in the palm and the side clip is ideal. The blade also looks excellent and it doesn't look as intimidating (though it can still be used in a tactical way if it must) as other knifes of the same dimension so it doesn't warn individuals. I would buy another in a second but I doubt I will ever need another one!

    You can see some good reviews at Spyderoco Endura Blog

    You can find a good price for the Endura here
