Spyderco’s Delica has been a cornerstone of their everyday carry product line since its introduction in 1990. The 4th Generation of the Delica lightweight was upgraded with a 13 mm RoundHole, spine jimping, reinforced blade tip, skeletonized liners, Bi-Directional Textured FRN scales and a four-position screw on clip. This Saber Ground version comes with a black coated, partially SpyderEdge serrated edge, modified drop point, VG-10 blade and Black FRN handles.
Brand new, direct from Spyderco Knives, Japan.
Blade: Saber ground, black coated VG10 stainless steel comes in a modified drop point with combo edge: part razor sharp plain edge and part aggressive SpyderEdge serrations. Serrations increase the cutting edge surface and make short work of tough, fibrous materials while the plain edge handles the clean slicing tasks. Delivering greater durability than a full flat grind, the saber grind is a great choice for harder use. Spyderco’s ambidextrous Round Hole opener makes for smooth, easy, one hand operation. Present as well is the jimped thumb ramp for added control in both fine and heavy work. Just over 2.5 inches of cutting edge makes this an excellent cutting tool you will want to have with you every day.
Handle: Spyderco’s Bi-directional textured FRN in Black offers exceptional traction in the hand with contoured edges and an ergonomic design that delivers comfort in the hand until the job is done. The sturdy mid-back lock design is easy to operate and comes with the Boye Dent further enhancing the security by preventing accidental disengagement of the lock when gripping the handle with heavy pressure. A hole at the pommel end allows for easy lanyard attachment. Construction is rounded out with black hardware and clip to match the blade and lock bar for a discreet overall look.
Carries via a 4-position, stainless steel hourglass pocket clip.
Japanese VG10: VG-10 is a high-carbon stainless steel that takes a very good edge and holds it well. Popular with Japanese kitchen knife makers it is often hardened to 60-61 HRC. A popular choice for small pocket knives thanks to good edge holding and stain resistance VG10 works well with a high polished, acute edge for optimal slicing performance.
