In 1990, Spyderco Company introduced two models of knives on the market: Endura and Delica, creating the demand for light folders that open with one hand at the great price. These products have become bestsellers. Due to their small dimensions and low weight, they are an excellent offer as EDC daily use knives.

Smooth blade (Plain type) were made with a Full Flat Grind reducing the weight of the knife and improving the cutting properties. On the back of the blade was placed the ribbed ramp under the thumb.
