Spyderco’s Endura 4 Lightweight has achieved near-legendary status in the world of everyday-carry cutting tools. The latest variation of this iconic model furthers its enviable reputation by combining all the best-in-class qualities of the standard version with the extreme cutting power and versatility of a Wharncliffe blade.

The perfectly straight cutting edge of the Wharncliffe profile cuts with full power along its entire length, enabling it to tackle extreme cutting chores and detailed work with equal ease. Available in either a PlainEdge™ or fully serrated SpyderEdge™ format, the VG-10 stainless steel blade features a full-flat grind for low-friction edge geometry that further accentuates the advantages of its Wharncliffe design.

A fully accessible Trademark Round Hole™ proudly announces its Spyderco lineage and provides swift, ambidextrous, one-handed opening. The high-performance blade is backed by a lightweight, ergonomic handle that includes a sturdy back lock mechanism, skeletonized stainless steel liners, injection-molded fiberglass-reinforced-nylon scales, a high-traction Bi-Directional Texture™ pattern, and a four-position pocket clip.

Proof positive that even the best tools can be made better, the Endura 4 Wharncliffe sets a new standard in high-performance folding knives.

One Mean Knife

I hadn't considered backlock knives until I found out that Michael Janich carried Enduras before he came out with the Yojimbo.
I now understand why the Spyderco backlock knives are so popular.
The reach of the Endura is almost as much as the Yojumbo (the big one) while being a much lighter knife.
There is not much of a hilt, but keeping your thumb on the spine jimping should prevent sliding up the knife.
One problem with the stock compression lock is it is not left hand friendly without modification. With the backlock, it takes one extra step to close, but it can be done easily with either hand.
Another plus of the backlock is the detent makes the knife almost impossible to open up accidentally in the pocket so it can be carried clipless at the bottom of pocket.
The right-handed serrations on this knife look mean, but one thing to consider is that when presenting the knife, they are not visible unless wielding left-handed or in reverse grip right-handed.
The Endura is much less expensive than a compression lock knife, so for me, it will be the goto if I want to gift someone a knife.
