SP11PGYW: C11PGYW Delica4 Emerson Opener
If knives could be created in the same way we choose players for fantasy football league teams, every hardcore knife knut would recruit features and characteristics they like best from different knife companies and combine them into their favorite knife. Spyderco will undoubtedly fulfill many knife knuts knife fantasy picks with the introduction of the Delica and Endura with Emerson's opening feature. These models combine all that's functional and performance-based in a Spyderco folder with the blade-opening feature made popular and patented by Ernest Emerson of Emerson Knives.

The Emerson opening feature is a hook curving out the top of the knife's blade. When removing the knife from a front pocket it catches the pocket's edge quickly opening the knife blade ready to use. The knife can also be taken out of the pocket without engaging the opening feature by pulling it straight up and out with your fingers on top of the closed blade.

Delicas and Enduras with Emerson's opening feature have screw construction making cleaning and adjusting easier. Their gray fiberglass reinforced nylon handles are molded with Bi-Directional Texturing® for traction and improved ergonomics. Inside the handle dual skeletonized stainless steel liners strengthen the knife without additional weight and create an anchor for external and internal components to attach through for more sturdiness and rigidity. Their VG-10 blades are flat saber-ground with a stronger tip and larger 13mm opening hole. Added to the blade's spine is slip resistant jimping. Phosphor bronze washers smooth out the open/close action and the clip is upgraded to a four-way tip-up, tip-down, left- or right-handed clip.

Met all expectations
I purchased the knife for my son who was returning home for Christmas on military leave. He's owned many knives over the years and specifically singled out this one on his wish list. It met all his expectations with regard to the weight, size, quality and blade sharpness. The Knife Center shipped my order the day it was placed. I would recommend Spyderco Knives and to others.

Follow up Review
Just wanted to write a follow up after having the knife for 3 months. The knife is still a super sharp knife and I use it. It is very handy especially with the Emerson wave feature on it. You just can't go wrong with it. If you don't want to carry the Endura due to its size this is the knife for you. Plus the price on this knife is fair. I do wish this knife came with a few more handle choices. At either rate this knife has been in my pocket since and been used almost daily for any sort of cutting duties I may have. This knife is worth it.

Cons: Pocket Clip
Great EDC knife!
Knife is very sharp out of the box(VG10). Lockup is perfect, I love hearing that solid click. The emerson opener works great as well. Blade is strong all the way to tip. Very comfortable in hand. The knife is just on the border of being too big for EDC and there is a bit of unnecessary space in the handle. FRN Feels great. Clip finish could be better as well.
