I would have liked to see Spyderco go with a deep carry wire clip on the Endela. Something like this would help it stand out from the Delica and Endura (and even the Native LW) and maybe drive additional sales. A lot of people have mentioned wanting a deep carry wire clip on the Delica 5, so this would have been a good gauge on people's reaction to a wire clip on the Endela. Just food for thought. Too late now.
I have to respectfully but absolutely disagree.
I'll admit, that I generally prefer the hour glass clip anyway and also think it's in any case the better choice than the wire clip for a knife meant to be for a broad variety of customers (so also beginners, "non knife people" and so on), cause it's more robust.
But even more important imho, the Endela is exactly NOT meant to "stand out from Delica and Endura", but just keep their great, tried and trusted overall design in a very usefull middle ground size.
And deep carry? Please NO for me. I never really understood what's the appeal there: Makes the knife longer and feeling bigger in the pocket and harder to access resp. places your thumb further away from the opening hole when drawing the knife.
Just my 2c of course.
Top three going by pocket-time: Endura 4 in VG 10/Micarta-scales; Stretch 1 in VG 10; Endura 4 in HAP 40
