I ordered a serrated Endela a few months ago just because I'm a sucker for spyderedges and because I was curious. Never carried the knife until one week ago when I decided to give it a try. First and foremost I was commited to remove that hump near the tip and mod it as I usually do with my Pac Salts... I like my blades to be as pointy as possible but... I changed my mind because I was sure I was not going to keep it in my collection. Long story short : I like the d*a*m*n knife more than I thought I would. Sweet lord, I even started to appreciate the blade shape, hump and all ... it's such a good allaround working folder and that drop point gives me decent piercing capability and confidence in the same time. Ergos are good for my medium hands but that Endura 4 style handle shape is not quite my cup of tea... I allways favor the Endura 3 style handle shape... however, it's not a biggie. Is it going to displace my beloved SE wharnie Delica ? I doubt but the jury is still out.
Very cool that an obviously very experienced and long time Spyderco - user and collector (certainly more so than I am) seconds my impression and recommendation of the Endela SE!
"Such a good allaround working folder" sums it up perfectly
Though I have to say: I never had a SE wharnie Delica, but I could see this being one of the few Spydercos that should and could be an even better cutter than the Endela SE, especially given the thinner stock of the Delica and its ffg grind (while the "regular" SE Delica is sabre grind and no match to the Endela SE imho when it comes to pure cutting power).
Top three going by pocket-time: Endura 4 in VG 10/Micarta-scales; Stretch 1 in VG 10; Endura 4 in HAP 40
