I’d go with the wood. It really came out well and I like the extra heft it gives compared to the FRN.

For me it would be a very easy choice:

No experience with Damascus, but don't like it's looks. On the other hand HAP40 is probably my favorite steel.

Plus as a handle material wood looks and feels way better than Titanium imho.

I'd even say: If I ever buy another Endura (I have three right now), it will most likely be exactly that HAP40 / Pakkawood model.

Very much personal preference 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

Me too. My favorite Endura. I do have a Ti version too, but in the mean-time it also received a HAP40 blade. :)

I forgot that Cara Cara 2 comes in Ti if you’re also considering Ti handles. The ergos is closest to Pac Salt, as it was ‘derived’ from older Enduras.

8Cr is no slouch as Vivi can share (he uses them harder than me).

I love the Spyderco Volcano Grip pattern. I also love the Pacific Salt, and have a PlainEdge, and it's being modified to have an Endura-like blade profile - same as what I had done on my Salt 2. First pic below is what I sent to the knife modifier - Delica on top, Salt 2 on bottom with a line drawn on what I wanted done. Second is his pic of the finished product. Love the finished product - H1 marking was untouched!
