If they switch to the same clip screw hole pattern as the Native 5 LW / Salt, then I'd be much less interested. If they make such a Salt version in bright green with un-coated LC200N, or all black in LC200N or H1, then I'd be very interested. I think Endela has a better chance of being made as a Salt than does the Stretch II LW, but I'd really rather have the Stretch as an LC200N Salt, or liner-less G10 in the standard steel, just like the Native 5. On that note, I'd also be interested in a liner-less G10 and VG10 Endela.
Cool idea!! But I don´t think the Endura-family will ever go back to linerless (in the sizes Delica and bigger of course) - not even for a special run...
I personally would really like to see linerless versions of my favorite Spyderco family!! Most times I like the feel and a-bit-more-weight of linered FRN-knives (as far as they are STILL rather light, lets say not more than 100 g (around 3.6 oz I guess), but I don´t think that liners are really NEEDED (maybe for long time durability of the pivot or the like? Don´t know...)
But as a mountaineer there are occasions when I habitually go for the lightest gear (that´s still functional) available, then linerless is great.
