This Spyderco Endura knife has a British Racing Green FRN handle and a full-flat ground ZDP-189 stainless steel blade that is satin finished with a plain cutting edge.
The Endura knife features a molded FRN (fiberglass reinforced nylon) handle with Bi-Directional texturing for traction and improved ergonomics. The handle is strengthened with dual skeletonized stainless steel liners that make an anchor for all external and internal components to attach while adding sturdiness and rigidity. Phosphor bronze bushings on the blade pivot smooth out the open/close action. The pocket clip is four-way reversible for tip-up/down, left- or right-handed carry.
The blade is ZDP-189, a powdered metal made by Hitachi that has phenomenal chemistry with 3% carbon. The hardness is around 64RC and edge retention is exceptional. This solid ZDP-189 steel blade is the hottest, hardest and highest performing steel in the knife industry today.
The Endura is a larger version of the Spyderco Delica knife. Both knives have been extremely popular over the years thanks to their lightweight, high performance build and affordable price.
