Spyderco's Endura 4 with Black FRN (Fiberglass Reinforced Nylon) handle. Refinement has been so ongoing and continual with Spyderco's CQI- Constant Quality Improvement. Their fiberglass reinforced nylon handles come molded with Bi-Directional Texturing® for traction and improved ergonomics. Inside the handle dual skeletonized stainless steel liners make the knife stronger without adding weight and create an anchor that external and internal components attach through, adding more sturdiness and rigidity. Their VG-10 blades are flat saber-ground with a stronger tip and larger 13mm opening hole. Added to the blade’s spine is slip resistant jimping.

OK, the details up there come from Spyderco direct. I wanted to share that this knife is an improvement to the previous model. The blade is thicker and a tad longer than previous models. I think this is good cause the wife always states thicker and longer is better. The blade has slip resistent cuts intregal to the blade so you can really put some torque when your giving yourself a pedicure. The stainless steel is VG10 which contains this vandium element stuff and I have no clue on what it does (failed chemistry) other than getting and keeping a finer edge to replace your morning razors. I did shaved the back of my hand testing the factory edge (not recommended on any other sensitive region) and was thoroughly impressed with the amount of bare skin exposed (EMS was not summoned). Newer Enduras have threaded pins verses rivots for assembly (as compared to previous models). I don't know if this will be an issue later on as I am sure I won't have the required Allen wrench to tighten it. Thats alright, a lifetime warranty exists and their made here in Colorado. If you looking for a tactical knife without cutting into the wife's Mercedes payment, check this one out. The spider bit me!
