SP11PGRE: Delica 4 - Green

The knife industry is constantly pushing the envelope searching for, and testing, higher performance blade steels. ZDP189 is rapidly asserting itself as an up-and-coming steel. It's a powdered metal made by Hitachi that has phenomenal chemistry with 3% carbon. The hardness is around 64Rc and edge retention is exceptional. This solid ZDP-189 steel blade is the hottest, hardest and highest performing steel in the knife industry today.

Cons: None
Nice EDC knife
At the time I ordered the Delica 4 my normal EDC was a Spyderco Dragonfly 2 in VG-10. I am very happy with the Dragonfly, but had run into a couple of instances where a longer blade would have been better. In addition my son has a Dragonfly 2 in ZDP-189 and he really likes the ZDP-189 steel. So this version of the Delica 4 gave me the opportunity to get a slightly longer blade along with ZDP-189 steel. When I first decided to try a longer EDC, I purchased a Ken Onion Ripple. But over time I have migrated back to the Dragonfly, mainly due to weight and the Ripple's action tends to need frequent cleaning to stay smooth and effortless in opening. The Delica is much lighter than the Ripple, and has not made itself a nuisance in the pocket. Besides the light weight, the blade came very sharp and has retained that sharpness. I am not a big proponent of the pocket clip on my EDC, so I will probably end up removing the clip on the Delica. The clip on my Dragonfly is a wire clip and is more aesthetically pleasing than the clip that come on the Delica. A positive feature is that the clip can be re-positioned for either tip up or tip down on either side of the scales. After a month's time I am very happy with this knife.

Pros: Ease of Opening, Overall Quality, Handle Feel, Weight, Lock Ease of Use
Cons: None
Great Steel. Love the color.
Been on my DEC rotation for a while with other Spyderco. Already came nice and sharp from factory as my all other Spyderco knife. Form factor and how it feel is exactly a Delica4. The color is dark green, so dark that it looks almost black. Blade steel is really hard, it took me a while on the sharpening stone to get the mirror polish on the edge that I like.

EDC companion
This is a great pocket EDC with Lazer sharp ZDP-189 just waiting for something to cut!!! The minimal weight due to the FRN make it disappear in your pocket but the outstanding blade material are what stand out when it comes to cutting. I will be on the hunt for more blades featuring the ZDP-189 material.
