I've been carrying my Cold Steel Voyager for years. Well I decided I need another knife. So I got a stainless Endura. I'm in love, this is my first Spyerdo, it's a super knife.

I have had 3 or 4 of both cold steel, and spyderco knives. IMHO, there is no comparison in the two brands. My worst spyde was twice the knife of my best CS.

I've owned an Endura since the mid 90's. Great knife. These days, I prefer something a little smaller, so I went with the Native. As far as folders go, it's hard to beat at any price.

Congrats. I've got a VG-10 Endura LW that is my yard knife. When ever I set out to do any work in the yard it always finds it's way into my pocket.

Endura has been my favorite for 15yrs. I've tried others but nothing is as good a folder.

I Started carrying daily with the Spyderco Delica. Then went on a quest to find the ultimate EDC blade. After several years and many hundreds of dollars on every brand and even customs from the biggest name makers in the biz I came full circle back to Spyderco Delica and then Endura as the best EDC (for my needs anyway). I will carry the Delica when, smaller is better but EDC an Endura.

Actually most of the time during the quest I would alternate between whatever and a Spyderco Endura or Delica. They simply can't be beat IMO. Spyderco Serrations will cut damn near anything. I also very much like the light weight and low metal signature of the Endura and Delica. I have walked right through many a metal detector and wandings with them.

I'm firmly in the CRKT camp, but own one Endura and want another. IMO it's the best value spyderco.. and my 'dress up' knife. Great blade, and if you get a chance at the ZDP 189 version at a fair price, GRAB IT!!!

That steel is some AMAZING stuff, even compared to VG-10, which is FINE steel.

I snagged one of the foilage green ZDP-189 sprint run, and I dunno WHAT the guy was thinking that sold it to me.

It's for sale at 3x what I paid, and no cheaper. Blade would be ok to shave your face with, daily, with if you cared to sharpen it to that purpose.
