Great choice, congrats!! The SE Pac Salt really is an incredible cutting tool. For "nornal EDC" I prefer SE in ffg, but when it comes to harder work you can't beat H1 sabre/ hollow grind SE imho (and it still does very well in "light duty" tasks)
Do you prefer the E3 or the E4 handle? I handled both in the store today, and thought they were both great! I went the the original PAC Salt just because of the deal!
I clearly prefer the E4 handle over the E3 (=Pac Salt 1) handle when it comes to ergos and comfort in hand!
Don´t get me wrong, the E3 handle is VERY good too, but the E4 handle is just perfect for me.
I personally (L to XL hands), never could really replicate what some people are saying about the "finger bumps on the E4 handle hit the fingers in the wrong places". This does not bother me at all.
And if I hold the Endura 4 like I do most of the times (either choked up on the Ricasso with the index finger, or, when four fingers on the actual handle, thumb not on the ramp, but rather on the side of the blade (in the area of the opening hole) - it is possible to fit two fingers in the first finger groove anyway (not so when the thumb is on the ramp).
Now to do the E3 handle right: Also very comfortable, even in extended use, and I like that it is a bit shorter (but still more than long enough for offering various grip options)
Top three going by pocket-time: Endura 4 in VG 10/Micarta-scales; Stretch 1 in VG 10; Endura 4 in HAP 40
