Limited edition 1200 piece run!

This Spyderco Sprint Run Delica is made with Aogami Super Blue steel for an extremely sharp, long-lasting cutting edge. The blade has a Super Blue steel core between layers of 420J1 stainless steel laminate. When you look at the blade you will see a line running parallel to the cutting edge on the grind where the two steels meet. One of the most obvious advantages of using a stainless steel laminate is it's resistance to oxidation and stains where high carbon steels, like the Aogami Super Blue, must be properly maintained to avoid corrosion and pitting.

Aogami Super Blue is produced exclusively by Hitachi Metals at their plant in Japan. They use high quality iron-sand found only there to create different grades of white and blue steels. The steel itself isnít blue or white in color; instead the designation refers to the color of paper the raw steel comes wrapped in when delivered to Hitachi.

This Spyderco Delica 4 knife has a Gray FRN handle and a full-flat ground Aogami Super Blue steel laminated blade that is satin finished with a plain cutting edge.

The blade on the Delica is full flat ground and features spine jimping that extends from the ramp to the top of the handle. The Spyderco original thumb hole on the blade allows ambidextrous one-hand opening for right or left handers and the phosphor bronze washers at the pivot make the blade action smooth. The Delica has a lightweight FRN (fiberglass reinforced nylon) handle with skeletonized stainless steel liners and a strong back lock mechanism. The handle features screw construction for quick, simple cleaning and adjustment. The FRN scales utilize Spyderco's patented Bi-Directional Texturing to keep your hand from slipping under pressure. The pocket clip is 4-way reversible for tip-up/down and left/right carry.

The Delica is a smaller version of the Spyderco Endura knife. Both knives have been extremely popular over the years thanks to their lightweight, high performance build and affordable price.
