I’ve had an Endela on me almost every day since I got one in hand! For me, it’s that good! Loved the PE so much I got a SE, which may be even better!? Something magical about a FFG SE VG-10 blade. If they happen to make one in Cruwear, I may just have my perfect knife! Please oh please Sal and company, make an Endela in Cruwear!
I can attest to this... I’ve seen some pictures for proof :rolleyes:

I may have to pick up and SE version
So where are the pics? :D (below one of mine, when it was brand new. Looks a lot more used and beat up as of right now, cause, well, I like to use it so much)

And yes, do pick up an SE Endela. If you like the PE, you´ll love the SE, I am sure.

Here you go. Both sporting silver clips just because they look better! Man, I can’t wait for some more options!

I don't think so.
Other then that the whole "Endura family" (including the Endela) will probably come out in K390 (and dark blue handles??)...

How do you like your SE Endela so far? Generally and compared to the PE?

Well I sold the PE, if that’s any indication. The FFG SE is just beyond what I expected. Not that I won’t pick up a sprint or something more exotic that VG-10/Black FRN, but just plain Jane SE vs PE...SE all day!

Toxic Green PE LC200N Salt

Foliage Green Combo Edge

Include it in your Navy Blue FRN K390 Sprint series

Hoping the distributors responsible for the GITD Delica and Cruwear Delica include it in their exclusive series

HAP 40 sprint like with Endura, Delica, Dragonfly!

Just an "Endura-blue" FRN handle for the VG10 model (and maybe some more handle colors)

I’ve got to get one of these. I have one ahead of it thanks to knifeworks.

I’m waiting eagerly for K390. I’d love to see M390, too.

A serrated Endela in LC200N is almost compulsory if you ask me :)

Just got my serrated Endela and I keep asking myself : why don't we have the standard ffg Delica in spyderedge ?! The Endela is closer to the Endura than I'd like. I wish it was closer to the Delica lenght wise but mostly I wish the handle was shorter than it is. I am not crazy about the more pronounced dop point but that's an easy fix ... I remember I have a grinder nearby. All in all, I have the feeling that it's going to be a good allaround user but it's hard to compete against my beloved serrated wharnie Delica. Please Sal, give us the ffg Delica in Spyderedge... LC sprint maybe ....

Anyone else hoping to see a Whar-endela? Wharndela? You know, Endela Wharncliffe.

In SE definitely!!

I don´t like Wharnies in larger blades, but the Endela is just small enough yet.
And I´d love to see that particular Wharnie model in 2.5mm blade stock like all Delicas feature (so not the 3mm of Endela and Endura

Thank you sir!
My specific individual request would be for an Endela in Purple FRN. FFG plain edge.
VG-10 is fine for my purposes but am open to trying one of the other steels.
A black DLC blade (and even black screws) on the purple handle would also be really nice, to me.

Adding standard disclaimer that these are one person's imagination and tastes vary widely.

Thanks - Keep up the good work !!

I just ordered a plain edge Endela! I've owned Delicas and Enduras. Right now I have only the Delica wharny serrated. Great knife.
Earlier I was thinking I'd wait for the K390 Sprint or another run but I'm less interested in super steels currently and would rather save a few bucks.

Does this just refer to color suggestions?

Oh NOOO, not THAT again... ;) (no offense meant of course)

There are more than enough "choiled" Spydies to choose from, but very few with the imho superior design:Endura-style RICASSO!!

One can choke up on it just as good as on a dedicated choil, it places the hand closer to the edge in a regular (not choked up grip), leaves more space on the actual handle, does not hang up on for example cardboard (a choil can), and offers the same safety-plus for the fingers as a choil...

So please! Don´t alter the very few "Endura-style-Ricasso Spyders"...

To be fair, the Straight Spine Stretch kind of solves this for me.
