    Question When pics of new FRN/SS Endura/Delica

    Hi,

    When will Spyderco publish some prototype pics of the new Endura/Delica (FRN/SS)? Sal mentioned, the new models will be released early 2006 and Spyderco showed prototypes at several knife shows?

    Welcome to the forum Thomas. Unless the knives themselves get released sooner, and with all the '05 stuff and Sprint Runs in the works, I personally doubt that will happen, it is most likely the first pics will be in the 2006 catalog, which usually comes out around December.

    Well, it's time to ask the question again, tk_power asked a few months ago. When will we see some production prototype fotos of the updated Delica/Endura series It's about four months 'till new years eve, and this was the time when the updates were expected to be released.

    I hope, that the first pictures will not be in the 2006 catalog.

    I believe tht Kelly and Joyce are making the "official" announcement on the new models to the dealers next week.

    Joyce planned the '06 catalog is go to dealers in early October.

    The new Endura 4 and Delica 4 are, IMO, the best thus far, ut I'm biased .

    Stronger tip
    VG-10 in the stainles models
    nested skeletonized stainless liners (pivots and screws go through the liners)
    4 way clip
    Improved ergos
    new improved bi directional texture on the FRN versions
    Jimping on the spine behind the thumb-hole
    larger thumb-hole
    All screw construction

    Since the Delica is by far my favorite knife I can tell this is going to be my dream Spydie.

    I will for sure be grabbing some up when they come out.

    Thanks Sal!

    I've been waiting for VG-10 in the stainless models, so I think this is great. However, I hope the tip isn't too rounded--like the Salt models. I find a pointy tip very useful in EDC.

    Looks like I might be stocking up on old models than. . .

    I figured this would happen, I seem to be in the minority of those who like a small hole. I do look forward to these new models and I can't wait for pictures!

    Yes, me too, I was perfectly happy with the regular 12 mm hole and unlinered FRN. But I do appreciate screws assembled knives.

    Sounds outstanding, as long as the price didn't double The only thing I'm iffy on is the stronger tip; I know I"m in the minority, but I loved the needle tip.

    Exactly same lock Sal, or did that get beefed up any commensurate with the extra strength the liners and screws provide?

    I feel the same way...OTOH:

    I am all for the jimping, and cannot wait to see *how* the ergos could be improved on these Legendary 's!

    Joe, I'm far from an expert, but the FRN models "destroyed" on the dealer video failed when the lockbar pivot tore out of the FRN. So my gut tells me that just adding liners, with no other changes would increase "lock strength" to some extent.
