Spyderco Endela Emerson Opener Folding Knife

Our Price


(Gray FRN and 3.41″ VG10 Stainless Steel Satin Plain Blade)

Available on backorder

Sized to perfectly split the difference between the iconic Delica 4 and Endura 4 models, the Endela is rapidly earning a reputation as the perfect compromise. To make this full-service folder even more capable, it is now available with an Emerson Opener—an integral hook on the spine of the blade opens it automatically as it’s drawn. This high-speed version of the Endela features a saber ground VG10 blade, skeletonized stainless steel liners, a sturdy lockback mechanism, and an injection-molded fiberglass-reinforced-nylon (FRN) handle in the distinctive blue-gray color of Spyderco’s Emerson-Opener equipped knives.

The Emerson Opener

Ernest Emerson has had a profound impact on the cutlery industry and both the form and function of the modern tactical folding knife. Although the scope of his influence is extremely broad, perhaps his most revolutionary innovation was the “Emerson Opener.” Also known as the “Wave-Shaped Feature” or more colloquially—and inaccurately—the “Wave,” it consists of a small integral hook on the spine of a folding knife blade. When the closed knife is carried tip-up and drawn from the pocket, the hook snags on the lip of the pocket and swiftly rotates the blade into the open position. If you need to use your folding knife in a hurry, the Emerson Opener is hands down your quickest option.
