I voted Endura, only because it seems to be more popular.

The only thing in common these two knives have is the brand. I'd have to vote for the Para 2, but i'm totally biased ;)

Well, i admit i haven't owned an Endura, but it's a knife that i tend to pick up just about every single time i'm in the knife shop, because for the size it's hard to beat for the price. It's a very nice knife, but for me the Para 2 is just on another level, and the price of the two knives reflects that. I've owned two Para 2's and i plan on buying at least one more of the sprint models. It's just about as perfect for an EDC as you can get IMO (and of course, that's gonna vary a lot from person to person).

Para2

Postby bh49 » Mon Dec 19, 2011 2:17 pm

Both are great knives, but i agree with David, Para2 is a different level. So if price difference is not an object, get para2.

price is some what a concern because i can get the endura and be fine but it is tight right now so i am not sure.

Will you be happy with an Endure? Probably. It's a great knife, and the FFG version is a wicked cutter. Will you be happy with a Para2? No. You will be freaken ecstatic. Like others have suggested, , ,it's on another level. Either way, it's a win-win for you.

:spyder: I think you don't need a poll to decide, just buy a PARA2 :D . . . . The real problem is which PARA2 :confused: :eek: . . . . :spyder:

Either way you will be happy. Totally different tools but equally good.

Frankly it's a hard comparo, one is half the price.

I voted Para2. It's a unique design and I just love it.

I also have an Endura4 in Stainless Steel. It's a good knife but I like the Para2 more.

Endura - great knife, great value, a classic.
Para2 - A different league, a cut above the rest.

i carried a ZDP endura4 for a year straight and i have carried two versions of the para2 for the better part of a year. my take is: i really like my endura4, but the para2 is a better knife overall.
