I got the Endura FRN ffg around 3 years ago, and have since always felt that it was an awesome blade. It could go toe to toe with any knife in the kitchen, wash it, and head to the garage to break down boxes. All without a sweat. Then I could take it to work (on a farm for 6 months or so now a warehouse) and still have the best slicing blade in the place. The only problem being that it was to big for my taste as the EDC knife I wanted and thought I was getting (perils of online shopping vs seeing it up close in a store).
The Endura made me a Spydie fan , and I fell in love with the Endura/Delica platform although I have yet to try any other Spyderco knives. Needless to say, it only took me a couple of days of wincing at the price while feeling it up with my eyes to convince myself it would be worth the $155 to have all that Endura goodness with me all the time in an edc sized Delica with g10, "voodoo Steele" and the bad *** St Nick's coloring!
I got it yesterday, and by 3pm today I've found countless things to cut, knicked both thumbs somehow without bleeding, and I haven't put it down or stopped smiling! It's my first ever real EDC outside of my Leatherman wingman, so as I'm sure you can all imagine I'm just giddy to know I will have this kind of blade with me for work, as well as general EDC. So far it has exceeded my expectations! its a scapel, and it hasn't left my side.
Side note: I've read up on some knives in the forum but this is my first ever post. Seems like a great community, and i hope to stick around and become part of it cause I'm sure sold on the knives lol!
