    I have an Endura 3 that I really like, but would like to have the jimped thumb ramp and larger hole that are features of the Pac Salt.

    I prefer them to the lined, "screwy" Delica 4.
    I'd love...

    After using the flats of the standard white Sharpmaker stones, I finish off the edge by stropping it in the palm of my hand.

    It works well - a strop with feeling!

    I have to disagree too, Mr Glesser. The Aqua Salt is one of the most handsome Spyderco designs I have seen.

    I have ordered one as my dive/boat knife.

    A rattly stop pin sleeve is not a fault or a problem. The sleeve is free to rotate to spread the wear over the whole circumference and the rattle should stop of its own accord in time.
