The PAC Salt and Endura need the same handle shape as the Military. There would be no more complaints about the points and it would be stable under hard use.
What do y’all think?
I personally love the Endura 4 handle and ergos (also over the E3 / Pac Salt 1 handle) and it IS stable for me in hard use.
But I am aware of, that while most people really like the Millie handle, there are kind of two camps when it comes to the Endura 4 (again, I am in the "it´s perfect" camp).
So, I kind of see the point here.
But, what I would really NOT like to see:
1.) NOT: The Endura / Pac Salt becoming yet ANOTHER knife with a choil (don´t get me wrong, the Millie choil is great, but the Endura is the perfect large folder "NO choil option": Hand being closer to the edge in a regular grip, Ricasso still perfect (and for me more stable than a choil) for choking up
2.) NOT: The "hook" at the end of the Millie handle. This feature in itself is fine, but it lengthens the handle without giving the blade more length ("wasted space inside the handle"). The Endura should not get any longer, but stay a rather compact, pocketfriendly, long bladed option imho.
Top three going by pocket-time: Endura 4 in VG 10/Micarta-scales; Stretch 1 in VG 10; Endura 4 in HAP 40
