In the 1980’s, the original Spyderco Endura blazed a trail as one of the first lightweight clip-carry folding knives. Today it remains one of our most popular models and continues to set the standard for all other knives of its breed. Now in its fourth generation, it has also inspired a broad range of variations to meet virtually every user’s needs and preferences.
All Endura 4 Lightweights are distinguished by their skeletonized stainless steel liners and injection-molded fiberglass-reinforced-nylon (FRN) handles. This elite version of the design features a full-flat-ground, PlainEdge™ blade crafted from ZDP-189—an ultra-high-carbon steel that produces an extremely hard, long-wearing edge. Its slim, highly refined blade grind offers incredible edge geometry and a distal taper that reduce friction for optimal cutting performance. A sturdy back lock mechanism housed in the handle locks the blade securely open when in use yet allows easy ambidextrous lock release. Molded in a signature British Racing Green color, the fiberglass-reinforced-nylon handle features Bi-Directional Texturing™ for a secure, non-slip grip and a four-position hourglass pocket clip that supports left or right-side tip-up or tip-down carry.
