Spyderco has released the Endura Lt. Wt. with Wharncliffe blade.
Spyderco has also released the ParaMilitary Lt. Wt.
We have sal telling us that Spyderco will eventually release a Caly 3.5 Lt. Wt. FRN model.
And there is talk of very possible Military Lt. Wt. FRN.
Which of these are you most interested in or are you interested in all of them?
I love the Endura but I am especially interested in the Caly 3.5 FRN and Military FRN.
Will the Caly 3.5 FRN have a WIRE Clip or hourglass clip?
You mean "released the Para 3 Lt. Wt.", right?! Though a PM 2 Lt.Wt. would be of much more interest for me personally,it´s more in the size range I prefer.
Of the ones you mentioned above I am by far most interested in a Caly 3.5 FRN... in fact VERY interested!! Noticeably shorter in closed length than even the Stretch, but offering even a little more edge, choil in the HANDLE for the most part, not in the blade, so sacrificing not too much edge, and all in an affordable, lightweight FRN - package... count me in!! What comes to my mind immidiately: Such a Caly will strongly compete with an "Endela" (I started a thread concerning this knife: Endura family, sized between Endura and Delica), given they will be in the same price category..(though I figure the Caly will feature better steel and be more expensive?!)
Concerning a Military LW: Someone discussed in a recent post, that it would be questionable how much LIGHTER in weight you could really make a Military: It is quite light right now, due to the only partial liners, a FRN model would maybe have to get longer liners to be strong enough?!
Still, it would be more affordable, and FRN has it´s advantages over G10 (and vice versa).
Imho they should and probably will come out with a PM2 LW before a Millie LW...
Top three going by pocket-time: Endura 4 in VG 10/Micarta-scales; Stretch 1 in VG 10; Endura 4 in HAP 40
