Spyderco C10PGRE Endura 4 Lightweight - ZDP-189 Blade

The knife industry is constantly pushing the envelope searching for, and testing, higher performance blade steels. ZDP-189 is rapidly asserting itself as an up-and-coming steel. It's a powdered metal made by Hitachi that has phenomenal chemistry with 3% carbon. The hardness is around 64Rc (Rockwell C) and edge retention is exceptional. This solid ZDP-189 steel blade is the hottest, hardest and highest performing steel in the knife industry today.

The British Racing Green FRN (Fiberglass Reinforced Nylon) handles come molded with Bi-Directional Texturing for preferred traction and improved ergonomics. Inside the handle dual skeletonized stainless steel liners make the knife stronger without adding weight and make an anchor for all external and internal components to attach through adding sturdiness and rigidity. The ZDP-189 blade is FFG (Full Flat Grind) with a stronger tip and larger 13mm opening hole. Added to the blade's spine is slip resistant jimping. Phosphor bronze bushings smooth out the open/close action and the clip is upgraded to a four-way tip-up, tip-down, left-handed or right-handed clip.

    Best EDC

    Posted by Daniel R on Feb 12th 2015

    I've had this knife for a few years now and it's still razor sharp after 2 years as a hard use edc at my job. Hands down the best steel for edge retention in my experience besting D2 and 154CM. Haven't tested my benchmade s90v 940-1 enough for an accurate comparison there. Blade did chip slightly when it was foolishly misused to cut wire.

    Super knife, and now I'm hooked on Spdyderco ZDP-189's

    Posted by Martin Shapiro on Aug 26th 2011

    Jeff has gotten me again. I've never been a great fan of Spyderco knives, preferring Al Mar's, and other brands of folders, but Jeff kept mentioning them to me and I asked which knives he carried on his camping trips, and he told me about Spyderco ZDP-189's. I bought 2, the Endura and a lady bug. As usual, not only were the knives both great, but the cutting power of even the tiny ladybug is incredible with this new Japanese steel. I get the feeling that the Endura will cut through sheet metal, but I won't try it, and I really must say that this is the first knife I've ever owned that keeps me very alert when it's open and in use. I haven't owned it long enough to remark on how long it'll stay sharp before it needs either touching up or resharpening, but I have a feeling it's going to hold an edge just fine. There are 3 or 4 other ZDP-189's that Spyderco makes but that Jeff notes are out of stock currently...2 of which I intend to purchase when they come in. Jeff really didn't "get me", he just turned me on to a new product that he's tried and finds outstanding...how can I ignore his recommendations, which in this case, like so many others were completely accurate.

    Endura 4 FFG = Awesome ..... Thx Jeff and also TNP

    Posted by Ed Capps on Jun 15th 2011

    Just wanted to give a quick shout to Jeff at CSI and to TNP (TheNutn Fancy Project) for guiding me here.

    I purchased this knife at Jeff's recomendation, after orginally going with a CS Lawman. I am very happy to say I am glad the Lawman was backordered or I may not have been lucky enough to come across this knife. I have a Delica 4 in FFG and do like the size of it for a EDC application however that being said I do think that this knife fits my hand better the weight is nice it is slightly heavier than the Delica 4 but not enough to where it is a issue. The Blade (ZDP 189) is Razor SHARP!!!! Typical Spyderco product .. excellent Jimping, good texture on the handle, and no PLAY side to side or up and down!!!! I fully expect this knife to be my main EDC. Thanks again Jeff for pointing me in this direction. I will definately be using you for future purchases.

    lives up to the hype

    Posted by Wayne Yasinski on May 4th 2011

    after searching and talking to Jeff, i decided on this knife instead of its vg-10 cousin and im so glad i did. After hearing jeff's testimony of the value and cutting temperament this knife posses, i decided to try it on a 285 BFG AT tire, yes the tri-wall version and wow it cut through it. puncture resistant, im thinking otherwise. Its wonderful to see the you-tube hype was correct. for the 30 dollar difference, you really see where that extra money went and at under a 100 bucks a great EDC that you dont have to baby..Thanks again Jeff in not steering my wrong....Its a classic knife with the new metal and its match made in heaven.....
