Hot on the heels of his latest CRKT model called the Remedy, and a custom collaboration with maker J. Bin, Liong Mah is introducing the Endevour into his line of high-end production knives. Mah says this big blade is the truest expression of his style yet and sets the stage for a full slate of releases he has planned for 2017.
The Endevour evolved from Mah’s SDC series, but addresses a long-time customer request. “People wanted a knife they didn’t have to flip open. So there would be a more discreet option for opening a knife,” Mah tells us. In addition to a disappearing flipper tab, the Endevour features a long groove milled into the blade. An orange peel texture inside this recess allows it to function like a nail mark for two-handed opening in situations where a flipper might draw unwanted attention.

Its drop-point blade, forefinger choil, and high flat grind all telegraph its utilitarian intent. The titanium frame lock knife weighs 5.5 ounces, and its 3.75” S35VN blade is ground by hand, with flats that are hand-rubbed to contrast the satin-finished grinds.
