Description

Description

This Spyderco Delica 4 knife has a lightweight black FRN handle and a full-flat ground VG-10 stainless steel blade in a wharncliffe style with a plain cutting edge.

The blade on the Delica is premium VG-10 stainless steel from Seki-City Japan in a wharncliffe style with a perfectly straight cutting edge. 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.

The spyderco delica is a staple in the knife world, and I think the warencliff varient is a nice addition to the line. I found the blade shape pretty useful for most edc tasks, but remember, since it doesnít have a belly, you canít cut with a rocking motion like you could with a standard delica. If you keep this knife sharp, it has no problem slicing through almost anything (paper, boxes, tape, apples, etc. vg10 can get very sharp, but is prone to chipping, so it needs to be handled with some caution. If youíre new to sharpening this is a great knife to get because there is no curve to deal with which is definitely a plus.

Pros: sharp, good ergonomics, bidirectional frn scales are strong and provide plenty of grip, easy to sharpen, back lock is strong, sits well in the pocket, blade shape is more useful for certain tasks, and the price is great for this level of knife.

Cons: not made in USA, frn scales feel cheep, the blade shape makes certain tasks more difficult especially if the blade isnít sharp, one handed closing is possible but itís not convenient, vg10 chips fairly easily.

Conclusion: the delica is a great knife and I think everyone should own one. Theyíre easy to carry and very useful especially for office tasks around the office. If youíre going to put this knife through harder use I might recommend the lilí native since it has s30v steel, and a thicker stock. Itís also made in the USA and the G10 scales feel more robust.
Awesome Update to a Classic

Sal and Eric Glesser put a gun to my head and forced me to buy this knife. Okay, that's a lie. The truth is, I had been looking for an excuse to buy another Delica for a while. I had the old stainless handled one, which is good, but kinda slippery. When I saw the new Wharncliffe design, I jumped on it. Glad I did. FRN is so much more grippy. I love the blade. It's voracious and tears through everything. Kudos to the nice, even grinds. VG-10, isn't fancy, but it's easy to get screaming sharp. Even more so since the straight edge is the easiest to sharpen. The knife is kind of funky looking, but I think that's part of the Spyderco charm. If you already love the Delica or if you want to try one out for the first time, I highly recommend this knife.

This knife is just Sharp! It looks sharp and is sharp. It just stands out from others due to the shape. Almost a needle point on the wharncliffe blade. It is a bit thick when closed due to the blade being stuffed in the same handle as other blade shapes. But itís just great.
great lw edc

This is my first wharncliffe blade and I dig it. I prefer this blade over the original. Handle is same old delica and delica problems, like a little bit to overpriced, to much sticks out from pocket. Overall great knife

Love this knife. I carry this along with a Yojimbo 2 and i use this for more hard use (aka things you shouldn't do with a knife) so as to keep my yojimbo clean. Love this knife, highly recommend it.
Perfect for some, not for all

I work as a stock boy in a grocery store and this knife replaced the standard Delica 4 completely. It melts through cardboard, plastic, banding, paper, etc like a lightsaber. It is a very impressive knife but may be suited more for people who use boxcutters the people who need to cut things like food.
