Hi Attila,

We'll be using the same bi-directional texture as the Endura FRN family. It's an effective pattern for working, has good traction, the maker is comfortable with it and it's sot of his trademark. (We try to use different patterns for different makers). We'll use the same pattern for the Endela and the Rock Jumper. We'll use back for the VG-10 version, BRG for the ZDP. I haven't decoded on the K390 yet. Somewhere between gray and midnight blue.

Sal,

Thank you for the response and confirmation of those details.

I look forward to their releases!

No, Endela is a separate knife in between the Endura and Delica in size. It's still somewhere in the planning/production phases.

If Taichung and Golden knives are possible, the manix xl or sliverax in k390 would be amazing. The manix xl needs more sprints in general. The wharncliffe endura when it’s released would be an amazing option as well.
Everyone is crazy in their own special ways. Good thing too! The world wouldn’t be nearly as interesting otherwise. ;)

Top 5 knives I’ve owned: Caribbean Leaf, Shaman, Manix XL, ZDP-189/CF Caly 3.5, Native LW.
Top 5 steels I’ve owned: LC200N, MAXAMET, CPM S90V, ZDP-189, CPM M4.
Top 5 steels I want: CPM 20CV, K390, CPM 4V, VANAX, REX 45.

For the FRN Police, we're planning VG-10, ZDP and K390 variations. The ZDP and K390 versions are considerably more expensive to produce. I've been happy with my P4 K390 version and It finds it's way into my pocket often.

Would a K390 sprint series like the Endura family be more desirable or a single model? A series would be major project.

I’d like to see it like current sprint for the family (HAP-40, V-Toku 2) but why not see first if the P4 FRN in K390 has enough interest? Of course size matters so it may not be a good indicator ..

Endela in K390 could be my dream come true if it was similar to a 3.5" Police4 (smoothed finger grooves, choil, slim).

You have hit the nail on the head. I like my P4 so much I've wished for an 8-inch version which could be my main EDC. Except for the PM2, I feel that the 8" size is very neglected, and it's my favorite EDC size. An 8" Police Cub or Cadet would be an immediate hit and a favorite EDC. It would have the same extra-thin-carry G-10 and other P4 attributes. But that would be a whole new knife project.

In the meantime, I would be fairly ecstatic about a K390 Endela!! I would be free to replace the FRN with thin Police-like G-10, etc, if I wanted to.

Personally, K390 is my favorite steel and I'd like to see it used in this order:

Manix 2 and Manix 2 XL
Model R with any scales
Endela
Endura

But I would buy them all in any order if I were alive and well (heeled) :D Also a K390 Wharnfly !

So, is there any news about separate sprints or the Seki series in K390?

Definitely! Will do. I'm pretty excited about it being all murdered out like that is going look awesome I think? If nothing else it will definitely be corrosion resistant and more of a full time packing knife for sure.

Yeah right on! I've never cared, but all my family\friends expect it. My family are my coworkers so that's no problem. Small knives will never do what a big knife will do ,but most big knives will do bout anything a small knife will!

True, even shaving your tender earlobes, but you have to be careful and not be close to anyone who flails their arms about ;)
