I hate to be the one to bring up things like this because it makes me feel bad to see wonderful and useful tools like Spyderco knives abused by irresponsible and evil people to bring harm to others. But I was watching this episode of the show "Forensic Files" in which a man named Dusty Harless was murdered by a man named David Genzler, over an altercation involving situations such as where allegedly Harless engaged Genzler after Genzler called Harless' girl friend "baby" and offered her a ride.
Genzler and Harless got physical and Genzler pulled out a knife, a folder, and I'm watching the screen and what knife do I see, but what appears to be a Spyderco Endura or Delica.
Can any of you watch the video below and identify whether it is an Endura or Delica?
Here it is:
They show the knife at different points in the show, I see it at 8.37-8.40 minutes in.
Then you see the prosecutor hold up the knife at around 10.29-10.30 in the court room.
It looks like one of the 1990s model Enduras to me.
It is tragic and sad that people do these things to each other and also that such great knives get abused for such vile crimes.
Here is the website link to it:

Here is the Youtube video:
Here is a news story about it from the early 2000s. Genzler was finally released.

From that article:
" Harless, known as “Dusty,” had been bar-hopping in Ocean Beach with his friends. A former champion wrestler at Monte Vista High School, he was a well-known wakeboarder and surfer working in public relations.
He was the type of guy who quickly jumped to the defense of his attractive girlfriend, and on that night it cost him his life.
A fight ensued. Harless was killed. And Genzler, a 25-year-old bespectacled finance major at San Diego State University, was convicted of murder, due to the efforts of a prosecutor later accused of coaching Harless' girlfriend to lie on the stand. "
At the time of the above article, Genzler was suing the state for millions of dollars in damages because he said he was wrongly convicted and the prosecutor coached Harless' girl friend into lying on the stand. I wonder if he ever won it or not, and if he would buy himself another Spyderco Endura.
