So yesterday afternoon I decided to trim down that plastic discharge guard on my lawnmower. It was pretty thick plastic but nothing that gave me reason to second guess the durability of my SB Endura. After I got done trimming it down I was really pleased because the SB Endura had performed great. The plastic was tougher to cut than I had originally thought it would be but the SB held up great, there was no edge damage at all and it was still shaving sharp. There were some nasty looking scuffs on the softer steel but I didn't care because my Endura is a a user. Later on went to use my knife and noticed that the blade was not centered anymore. After looking at it closer I noticed that the blade had bent about an inch and a half from the tip. It was bent enough that it was almost touching the scale. What shocked me more than anything was that I grabbed the blade with both hands and was able to easily bend it back straight. The fact that it bent a little from use was a little concerning but being able to bend it back so easy really gives me concern. The Endura is hands down my favorite knife and now I am questioning how I use it. I've got VG-10 endura's in both FFG and saber grinds and would have never thought twice about cutting that plastic with them. So my question is should it have been that easy to bend back?
