Thank m you for sharing your thoughts on the Phoenix as well as the great picture. Sadly, I disagree with you 100% regarding the scales. I love the look of the white scales on the Phoenix and find the jigbone scales on the endura to be the ugliest scales I've ever seen Spyderco produce with the exception of the blue version. But that's ok. We all have different tastes.
With the new lil nilakka coming I really hope to see more white scales come from Spyderco. The original sized nilakka would look great with white scales for example.
