    Deacon, it wouldn't surprise me at all if that were the failure mode for the current endura, and if so, I think you're right in that adding liners would automatically strengthen the lock -- provided that the lock bar wasn't close to failure itself at the time the FRN fails. If the lockbar was close to failure, then all you've done is bought yourself a few extra pounds before the new failure mode of lockbar failure kicks in. I know Sal understands this all very well and no doubt changed the lockbar if needed, or didn't change it if not. I'm just curious as to whether or not he had to.

    WOW, these sound like some great improvements. I am also a little iffy on the stronger tip and liners (I am not sure that they are necessary and feel they might ad excess weight and expense). I have never heard of a FRN spydie breaking in use.

    I came into the game a bit late for the delica and endura though, I own neither. I started on the Caly Jr, and that is my small FRN knife. Anyhow, I look forward to seeing these new modles and hopefully they will be awesome.

    Just a question, I know at one time you offered the Economy Standard to meet a lower price point. Will the older model delica and endura still be offered at a lower price point or will they be removed entirely. Or will it be something like the native and native III where they both run at the same time as different but similar knives?

    Just curious as to how things will shake out.

    Of course now the next key question becomes, was at least part of the reason for delaying the release of the ZDP_189 Delica to allow it to be the "2006" version?

    FRN Delica/Endura with all screws? YES!!!!!!!. No more blade play, adjustable opening/closing action. These knives will be close to perfect. Can't wait...

    It had crossed my mind too It would seem to make good sense in a FRN model (price point) and I notice there was no mention of the FRN model's steel in Sal's post.

    WOW, I'm speechless. Sounds like a winner. Can't wait to see the first pictures. Can we have some specs, e.g. weight, lengths,...

    Seems to be an expensive fall

    Hi Joe.

    It's all new tooling, so there are minor differences in the lock as well, but basically it's the same. The pins go through the liners so there is added strength for the reasons mentioned. the liner is nested and skeletonized so little weight is added. MSRP is slightly higher on the FRN versions, about 10% on the SS models due to the VG-10.

    Sal showed the Endura and Delica off at Blade this year. These are real improvements that will make these knives more competitive with the Griptilian line IMO. I think the liner will make them operate more smoothly. Spyderco certainly has the advantage with VG10. The lock is a matter of preferance. All these improvements though and still lower in price than Grips.
