This knife is awesome! when i first got it i had to do the sharp test with the paper everyone seems to do.....man did it pass with flying colors! i can shred paper all day. i also noticed that it has a solid lockup it has no play at all so it gives me confidence that it is a quality knife. this knife is also light weight i carry it every day and dont even notice it especially with the tip down carry clip. if you are looking for a relatively cheap knife that has alot to offer and sacrifices nothing compared to the more expensive options, this is what you want to get.
This knife is no longer made by Spyderco, but still found on their web site and they show the replacement knife. This knife has been around for ever and is a standard issue for many of the arm forces. With all this this knife is an incredible knife and keeps a super edge and the price is awesome. Would recommend it to anyone wanting a light knife for all purposes.
This was my first knife I had used for daily work tasks. While the Spyderco edge is very sharp, and the blade finger hole is well designed for ease of use, the overall construction of the knife had a few flaws, mainly a blade tip that is easily damaged when dropped, a weak carrying clip that will break off after a few months of daily carrying, and the blade is prone to rusting when cmpared to other brands. After sending the knife back twice for repairs, I have since switched to a Buck knife for daily hard use, reserving this Syderco for back-up /light duty use.
I own several Spyderco knives of different design & utility, but they all have the same high quality construction.
This knife is the most practical and effective of oll Spydercos produced. Although I carry the Endura and others for specific jobs, the Delica tops them all in usefulness and ease of carrying.
Great knife, great price. I've owned these for years and highly recommend to anyone who works and needs a sharp knife.
I've carried a Spyderco Delica since 1986. There have been four. I've retired one, lost two, and carry the fourth. For those in the know, the current model differs from the original design mainly in metalurgy and the pocket clip. The original blade was made of AUS-8 (something like 440) with a molded in plastic pocket clip. I carried it for 9 years retiring it in 1995. After trying several other knive, I returned to the Delicia with a model that had a ATS-55 blade. I snapped the tip of that second knife scoring drywall (you're not suppose to score drywall, but I did it for 9 years with the old one). The new clip is steel, removable and repositionalble for right or left hand carry. From my experience having lost two, it is not as secure as the original plastic clip. Both the ATS-55 and VG-10 blades are hard steels and difficult to sharpen. But it's not neccessary to sharpen them as often.
