Spyderco Endura wave opener

This is a grwt knife designed to open when you pull it out of your pocket, faster than a switch blade.


d_murik asked Can this knife handle wood carving?

OK, I want the Spyderco Endura Wave, but I’m also looking to start carving wood as a beginner. My question is : Can the Spyderco Endura Wave handle the carving of wood, and, if not, which stylish foldable knife can?

And got the following answer:

I used to do a bit of carving.
I suggest that for carving you get a Frost’s or Mora knife with the birch handle and under a 3 inch blade length. They are fixed blade knives and usually are fairly cheap.

I have a Spiderco Endura without the fancy wave hook on it.
The handle is not comfortable for wood carving at all, but it would be a strong enough blade for sure.

I am not a big fan of folders for serious carving, but I can understand wanting a pocket knife that can do that.

I have tried a lot of them myself.

I always end up using fixed blades with traditional Frosts/Mora as the preferred ones.
A lot like #120 on this page http://www.swedishknives.com/woodcarve.htm
but with a 3 inch blade.

If I was choosing a folder for carving I would likely look at a Gerber with the 3 inch blade or Puma.
I found the handles as much more comfortable than spiderco’s as spiderco was over Buck.
(to me the Buck folder felt far to square edged)

I had one folder that I did like by Boker, but they no longer make it.

John asked I work in L.E. and want an auto knife for self defense. OTF or OTS? Plain or serrated blade?

Hello. I work in law enforcement (plain clothes), and I am looking for knife primarily for self defense in the event I can not access any of my other gear. I do want an automatic knife. I am not sure whether I should get an Out The Front or an Out The Side auto knife. Also should I get a plain or serrated blade? Thank you.
STEVEN F: Are you on the job?

And got the following answer:

Auto knife? for defense….. Heck no, look up the Cold Steel AK-47, Emerson CQC-7 (waved), Spyderco Endura (Waved), Emerson Commander, etc… The common trait of these knives is that they are not autos and have no opening spring but are faster to deploy than autos of any type. Also, OTF Autos can have a disconnect of the spring from the blade if opened into an object, thus causing the blade to be unlocked forward or back, so it slides freely until pulled out manually into the open position. That said, If you really are a LEO, you know knife law for your area already, if not, and I lean toward not, then study knife law and get something legal.

Kyle asked I’m not sure on what knife to get I’m looking between a Coldsteel or a Spyderco?

I either want a Coldsteel ak-47 or a Spyderco Endura 4 with the Emerson wave I can’t make up my mind if anyone owns one or both of these knives please help or even if you have seen one in person or have background in knives haha

And got the following answer:

Regardless of the purpose Spydercos are better knives compared to Cold Steel. Even though I don’t like the blade geometry on Spydies they’re better knives.

Specifically – Spyderco endura has VG-10 steel, hardened to 59-60HRC while cold steel uses AUS-8A steel around 56-58HRC. I’d assume it’s closer to 56HRC,
As far as blade steel performance goes AUS-8A is level below VG-10.
More on that in Knife Steel FAQ – http://zknives.com/knives/articles/knifesteelfaq.shtml#VG10

At lest in my experience Cold Steel blades except for Carbon V steel ones didn’t hold a good edge.
Reviews here:
Folders – http://zknives.com/knives/folding/indexbymk.shtml?Cold%20Steel
Fixed – http://zknives.com/knives/fixed/indexbysl.shtml?Carbon-V
Besides Spyderco endura can be carried tip up or down, left or right handed.
Blade to handle ratio is a lot more proportional on Spyderco compared to Cold Steel,

In short Spyderco is a clear winner.

To James D. – Knives are the oldest tools that humans invented and if you can’t get anything else in your mind besides stabbing, then perhaps you should be locked up, not normal people carrying the knives.
For your information, the stabbings and generally knife related crime, is mostly committed with kitchen knives, not with expensive folders. At least get some facts before insulting other posters.
I carry 2-3 knives on me all the time and so far never had to use them for anything but utility use.

Frank asked Best pocket knife for self defense?

Assisted opening or non. I live in PA in a rural area.
I can spend 50 dollars to around 150

And got the following answer:

There are so many knives out there that would work excellently in a self defense situation. Emerson knives are specifically made for self defense. Though they are quite expensive and most are weak when it comes to everyday tasks. A waved knife, in my opinion, is faster than any assisted/auto knife out there, as it has a small lip on the blade that catches on the corner of the pants which allows it to open as you bring it out. Emerson and Spyderco both have waved knives in production. Check out the Spyderco Delica or Endura with the wave feature. Kershaw also makes many tough knives at affordable prices. Check out the Kershaw Blur. Assisted open, fairly good steel, and a solid lockup. If you give me more information such as price range, preferred blade length, ect, I can narrow it down much more for you.

Christian asked Tenacious Vs Endura 4 FFG.?

So guys, today i need your help. I need help between the Spyderco Tenacious and the Endura 4 FFG. BEFORE you jump to answer the question, i would like you to know i would like either of these knives, BUT which one will have a stronger lock-up overall? Like lets say im going to use it for tactical uses…Which one would have a stronger lock?

Next, this is off subject to the question above…

What would be the best hard use tactical knife under 60? I was thinking the CS Recon 1 , BUT let me know.

And got the following answer:

Well campers don’t need tactical knives we need multiple tools beyond just a knife so we use multi tools. I prefer the leatherman wave.

matt asked Are spring assisged knives illegal in pa?

I want to buy a knife but the one i want is spring assisted. I know the laws are confusing so i just don’t want to buy a knife thats completey illeagal. Thanks.

And got the following answer:

A law is like a telegraph poll, you can’t go over it, but you can always go around it
Take a look at this – Spyderco Endura Wave – was designed by Emerson and is designed to hook on the edge of your pocket and open the blade as you pull it out of your pocket. no springs
