    Never been a fan of the Endura...

    But I have been loving the SB Sprint...it has had a lot of pocket time and use the last week or so and I really have liked it a lot. Much more than I thought that I was that is for sure.

    It is starting to look like I used it to try and cut rocks, but I am not bothered by that.

    What are your problems or negative issues with the Endura? Is it the size or the shape or what?

    I go back and forth on the endura. I like the saber ground better than flat. The flat looks a little kitchen knife-esque to me.

    The endura is one of my favorite designs. If I didn't have millie or paras, it's what I'd be carrying. It still finds it it's way to my pocket some of the time too.

    I've not a big FRN fan, and I always felt like it had too much handle. It is too light and yet feels blade heavy.
    It just never sat right with me...but this SB one, I just clicked with. Screaming sharp edge and it is slowly developing its own character and I am really enjoying it.

    Endura, one of my favorites for sure. I havent taken my SB version out of its box. The ZDP version has given me no reason to.

    Nothing wrong with the endura, just prefer the stretch so much more!

    I like the Endura, but I prefer knives with a better choil.

    And I don't know why so many people seem to dislike FRN. It actually works really well for me.

    I thought the Endura was too big for EDC, until I bought one - now I think my old EDC's (delica, caly-3, dragonfly) are too small EDC.

    Never been an Endura fan, some of the reasons above as well, blade heavy, too much handle. I would take the stretch over it any day of the week.

    I haven't tried a FFG version but may do that once the list of backlogged knives I want is cleared up.
