Linerless G10 S30V Endura

I wonder if this would be possible? I think it would be a nice knife in foliage green.

It certainly would be possible technically imo. Just look at the linerless, backlock, G10 Native or Native Chief or Siren...

Though I personally would prefer a linerless FRN Endura. Or just a Pac Salt ffg (in LC 200 N)

Possible? Yes, for sure, linerless G10 models have a long history in Spyderco.

On the other hand, why bother? I doubt you are going to save weight comparing to FRN+liners, or pure linerless FRN like on Pacific Salt 2. And if you want G10, you can go full liners, something like Knifecenter pakkawood exclusive, that had full liners.
In the pocket: Chaparral FRN, Native Chief, Police 4 K390, Pacific Salt SE, Manix 2 G10 REX45
On belt: Waterway

No liners for this one, though I like liners. It would be a strong, light knife.

This would be a really nice summer carry. I also wouldn't mind if it were in a more "exciting" steel like k390, though I still find S30V to be very appealing.

After using the linerless g10 native 5, I gotta say I’d go for this. I would absolutely love a linerless g10 endura AND Delica. And dragonfly for that matter.

The native is really not much heavier than the FRN version, but it’s a whole lot more rigid and feels better. And that’s coming from someone who enjoys lightweight FRN models.

Possible, sure. I think the big question would be whether or not people will pay around $200 for it. G10 and S30V knives coming out of Seki seem to be expensive and move slow. Remember the G10 and S30V Lil Temperance was $211, and that was before the MAP hike. Would there be a market for it?

I think they'd be more in the range of the wooden HAP40 models in price.

The Hap40 Delica with red g10 from St Nick's was $190. I'm just saying I think it will be hard to convince them that a strong market exists to justify more Seki G10.

Seems to me the native chief is already out there and checks a lot of the same boxes.

Nor sure about this, "Notsurewhy" ;)

Thumb ramp vs no thumb ramp at all, Ricasso (= hand closer to the edge in a regular grip) vs choil (better for choking up for most), make at least for some differences (and some people might even much prefer the one or the other feature).
Than there are really minor things like boye dent vs no boye dent that just very few people will really notice

Yes, and the Endura is a bit smaller in the pocket. I live where knives give cops hives. They freak out over them. The Endura just conceals better, at least I think so.
