I carried a Gen 2 Spyderco Endura Spyderedge for 25 years with FWPD. It never failed me but now that I’m retired and living on my ranch, I worry about losing it. I got a new Gen 4 Endura full flat grind and chose a color that will be more difficult to lose.

I think Spyderco makes some of the best sanely priced knives on the market right now.

Mine was not gently used and still works/looks almost new.

Always liked spyderco knives and have owned a bunch of them over the years (paramilitary 2 was my favorite)... sold 99% of my knife collection to buy knifemaking equipment when i started building my own, but I've got an OLD serrated delica I still use around my shop

Orange handle is smart choice. I did the same for all my deer skinning/gutting blades a decade ago and still have them. Prior to that I seemed to loose a knife a year.


To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.

Lotta stories those knives could tell.


A Democracy is when two wolves and a lamb vote on the dinner menu. That is why this country was specifically not designed as a Democracy. We are a Constitutional Republic.

I’m still looking for a camo handled NWTF knife I lost about 35 years ago.

I picked it up from the ground after several fights and was lucky to always find it.
