Pros: Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness, Handle Feel, Weight, Blade Material
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.
