The Delica lineup is closing in on an impressive 20-year history as one of the front-runners in lightweight, one-handed pocketknives. It’s one of Spyderco’s best-selling knives, along with the Endura product line.
This is the fourth knife in the Delica refining process, and it’s better than ever before. The most noticeable upgrade is the blade material. The Delica’s blade is made from ZDP-189 steel, a Japanese powder metallurgy blend of stainless steel that measures between 64-65 on the Rockwell scale! To our knowledge, Spyderco is one of the only companies employing this particular grade of steel in their blades.
Overall, the knife measures 7.125 inches. The blade is just short of 3 inches, so the knife should fit nicely into your pocket. It’s extremely lightweight too, as you might have guessed considering it’s a Spyderco knife. The green handle is made from FRN (fiberglass reinforced nylon) and has stainless steel liners bracing the inside of the handle as well.
The Delica blade you see pictured here possesses a fully-serrated edge. Other models exist with plain-edge and combo-edge blades, and you’re not losing any quality by choosing to go with another model. Any of them will work well for you.
