    Very nice!

    Bought one over the exchange sometime back but knife never arrived, lost in transit.:(
    Thank goodness I also bought Atlantic Salt and it somewhat helps ease the pain.

    Nothing has been decided, though we're considering the same overall pattern with the new texture. Some have complained about the handle pattern, but we sell quite a few Enduras's and the complaints of the handle have been very minimal. Open to thoughts as always.

    Wow I will have to wait for the results then since I was in the market for the Talisman 2. With pacific being the crown jewel salt in H-1 getting an update I may have to sit tight on my purchase.

    The 2 will get the latest Endura handle?

    Thanks. They came out better than I expected. I believe it was dark green liquid Rit dye for a minute or 2.

    Sorry I didn't mention it but there was a bit more. I brought it to a boil with a cup or so of water and a bit of salt and viniger. Still easy though.

    Argh, have a PE Pacific SALT and aimed for another H1 but now with the Caribbean, there are yet another design impervious to rust and which should work well for kayaking.

    Very tempted by the SE sheepsfoot.

    Choices....choices...

    Yeah I'm curious about the Caribbean. Spydero is doing really cool things with handles that I never saw before, but I wonder how LN200 stands up to H1. H1 is great but is crazy soft, I compare it to gold even. I bent the tip of my Tas2 but H1 is so soft I can put a new one on with very few strokes on diamond or boron. It also heals itself form a weak edge somehow comes back, so there's good and bad of it...is LN200 harder yet a big of a pain to keep up with as s110v?

    I feel like LC200N sharpens similar to S30V, with SM ultra fine rods I spent a lot of time pushing a wire edge back and forth across the apex but it wasn’t difficult to sharpen.

    I'm one of those who prefers the Endura 3/Pacific Salt handle to that of the Endura 4. Both knives have 3 "grooves" for finger placement. The Endura 4 has a wider front groove and a narrower middle groove than the Pacific Salt. With the Pacific salt, I usually hold the knife with forefinger in the forward groove, and two fingers in the middle groove. The problem I have with the Endura 4 is that it kind of forces to me to use two fingers in the forward groove. If I try to put only the forefinger in the forward groove then I can only put one finger in the smaller middle groove and two fingers towards the butt of the knife. This leaves me holding the knife too far back to comfortably perform most of my cutting tasks. I don't know, that's just one guys opinion. Everyone has different size hands and different ways of holding a knife so I might be in the minority but if I had my choice I would prefer the same handle shape on the revised Pacific Salt as the current model.

    Agree with Lance’s description. :thumbsup:

    The old E3 handle is quite similar to Cara Cara handle, so I also hope to keep the same shape but add bidirectional pattern to it. Basically a rounded Cara Cara / E3 handle with E4 texture.

    When the updated Pacific 2s come out, is it also planned to have an updated Spyderhawk to go along with them? Please?!?!
