WOW! I love this knife! I got it about week ago. I originally purchased a cold steel recon 1 (that's not in my "man purse") because I wanted something to replace my skyline. I wanted something that would be a bit better in a emergency defensive situation and the lock up on my skyline was beyond horrible. So after a lot of research I decided on the endura 4 and I couldn't be happier.
Value is fantastic. It cost me right around 40.00 which is what I paid for my skyline. Because you clip is positionable on all four corners I was able to eliminate the deployment issue's that I have had in the past with larger blades. I was nervous about the spyderco thumb hole as opposed to having a thumb stud but it work's great.
The knife is extremely light for a blade of it's size at3.4 ounces. It's quick to deploy and came WICKED sharp out of the box. I could shave with it if need be. My favorite feature about it is the size. It's large enough that if I have to employ it in a defensive situation I don't feel "under knifed" but it's small enough to still use for EDC. I whipped the endura 4 out in front of people to open boxes and no one gave it a second look. When whipped my recon 1 out in public people looked at my like I was a serial killer.
Overall this thing is fantastic. Well priced, good size and weight and extremely flexible in application.
