"available for a short time and in limited quantities" that's what the flyer says...
sprint runs quantities can vary, no more than 1500 i believe.

Lucky, lucky, lucky.

Why am I paying $BIG/year for the Post Office box (in an effort to cut out the mail carrier who visits many before me), we ordered at the same time, and you get yours first. Maybe I'll start visiting the PO twice each day...

Thank you for the pic and enjoy that fine looking hardware Mr. Lucky.

IIRC 600 are made in a batch...the lowest they make is 500 if an individual (group or knife broker) wants a particular batch. the only time i think they make a smaller batch would be the mules or the forum knives.

I got my white E4 today...much as I'd love to buy one of everything in every color, I can't afford to. I've gotta stick to FFG and hawkbill blades more....

Now imagine how awesome a white G10 Caly 3 would look....

I too can't afford to grab any other white ones besides the Ladybug. Once the Urban comes out my wallet will spring a huge leak!

Ohhhhhhh la la, oh yes, uh huh and other expressions of joy. You couldn't be more right RIOT. I am happy to get the white Endura.

I gotta admit it is beautiful. As is the white Lady Bug (my first small Spyderco folder). Perfection really. I feel like a king. No, like the king. And, I consider myself very lucky to receive such fine cutlery.

Thank you Sypderco. Thank you kindly.

Open carry of the white Endura will put to the test the will power, to control their jealousy & lust, of those that get a gander at it. It is brilliant white and shiny steel. A stunning combination really now that I see it up close. Angels and nurses should carry such finery. The kind of thing someone who has one should have to earn.

ok...possible dumb question.

how does one go about acquiring one of these knives? i dont see it for order through the spyderco site i could be just missing it.

the white is really good looking handle color.

i dont plan on ordering one because i've never been a fan of buying limited # items cause i'd feel kinda silly not using them, if i used them i'd feel silly using a limited # item for its intended purpose.

A good question. However, and unfortunately, my ignorance knows no bounds so I google my questions like in the link below.

Where there is a will, and there is a will BuffaloBill, there is a... there are knives made by thoughtful craftsmen just for those who want them thanks, many thanks, to the good folks at Spyderco.

You say 2 enduras and 2 dragonflys, I thought the endura was only comming out in plain edge do you have 2 different blades? if so whats the blade variations on both white knives? :confused:

Thanks

I was worried when mine came that it was painted white because of an odd texture to the FRN. After wiping it down with some windex, the film came off and it looks great! I just wish it was a slightly richer white. I got the White SAK classic at the same time, and tomorrow I'm going to TAD gear to get a clip to link them up Mr. Blonde style!

When Sal said something recently about this being a short or very limited Sprint Run, can't remember the exact words, but I took it to mean 400-600 pieces each.
