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. A new twist on the fully flat ground Delica 4 model is the introduction of the iconic Wharncliffe blade profile. Sometimes known as the “Jazzelica” (inspired by Spyderco Forumite, Jazz) the Wharncliffe Delica features a perfectly straight cutting edge and pronounced point for utility and detailed cutting tasks. This version comes with a plain edge VG-10 blade and black FRN handles.
Brand new, direct from Spyderco Knives, Japan.
Blade: Fully flat ground VG10 stainless steel comes with a razor sharp plain edge and stunning satin finish. Wharncliffe blades have the advantage of delivering full power through the cut from heel to tip. 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 straight 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 classic 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.
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.
