I use the FRN SE ATS-55 edition every day. It's paired up with my CPM440V CE Military as my main 2 knives. Always backed with smaller ones for the sheeple though.

After using the larger <img src="spyder.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>s, the smaller range (3&quot<img src="wink.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0> seems real small.

Hi Nick
I have an FRN Endura which I've carried regularly for years. I don't find the size a problem and the knife's light enough that I don't really notice it. S/S might be different though. I'd say carry it and enjoy - really nice knife.

I think the Endura might be next on my list. I thinking about carrying it as my back up IWB. I'll use my Delica as my main use blade, here in michigan it's legal length (3" blade).I wanted to get the military but I don't think I could justify the expense for a back up.
The Endura is a nice set up.

Knives are one of mans oldest tools..........not just weapons!!!!!

Hi Nick, MMMMMMMMMMM the Endura.
Altho MANY have tried to replace it in my LF pocket, I haven't found 1 yet that will make me leave my CE at home.
This 1 is the older ATS-55 FRN model and has a few custom touches on it, traction groves cut over the hole hump and the hole opened up further and beveled.
It is truely my do anything go to <img src="spyder.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>. Ron

Nick...Don't worry about the SS Endura being too large or too heavy to use as an EDC. I carry the (larger & heavier) Police model, but I don't really notice it in my pocket. Packin' the stainless Endura is easier than you might think. (Along with the SS Police model, I also carry a SS PE Delica as my 2nd EDC.).

I sometimes carry our older FRN model, it use to be my EDC, until I became paranoid of looseing it! The Endura is a great all around knife! RKBA!

Don`t know about S/S but FRN one feels just at home in my rear pocket.

I only have Delicas, as I preffer smaller knives. I'd also take FRN over SS anytime.

The Endura is an <b>EXCELLENT </b> EDC, IMHO. <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0> I received a FRN Endura SE as a replacement for a faulty Calypso Jr.. I use it for work everyday....takes a beating with ease and just keeps on cutting and cutting.

I used to carry a Military CE, but now I carry a Buck 110 with the Endura to complement with those really tough cuts. That VG10 is just AWESOME!!! <img src="wink.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>

The Endura and Delica are GREAT EDCs. I carry a Endura since I have a big hand.
