|Now from Spyderco, a stainless handle version of their most popular clipit model: The Endura lockback folder. The Endura II features identical specifications except, of course, its handle materials and weight. As an all-metal knife, this is an exceptionally sturdy and solid tool which should fill perfectly many person's requirements. There is a second set of screw holes so that you can reverse the end of the knife which has the clip and carry it either tip up or tip down while clipped to your belt or pocket.|

The Center of the Internet
The Spyderco Endura ( clipit lockback folder ) has been a top seller for the company for years now. The original version has Zytel® handles that promote feather-light carry. The 3 1/4" blade tackles all sorts of utility tasks with ease, and is available with a plain, or fully serrated blades. New for 1997, Spyderco decided to release another version of the Endura, this time one that features the solidity and heft of a satin finished stainless steel handle. With the extra weight added by the steel handle, flicking the knife open via the "Spyderco method" (firmly grasp blade hole with thumb and index finger, and snap your wrist downwards) is exceptionally easy compared with the lightweight Endura. The Endura II is very slim in profile (even more so than the original), it feels comfortable clipped to either the pocket or waistband. The overall appearance of this knife reminds me of the Police model - all stainless steel construction, with a long blade and curvy handle. I can foresee this knife being a good choice for a dress knife, with its clean appearance. As with all other Spyderco's, this one came out of the box hair popping sharp.
