Re: Delica point styles

It’s the way the picture came out when posted as the original clearly shows what I am talking about. I’ll see if I can do another picture. The difference is quite noticeable. The gray is more pointed like the old Delicas with only a very slight drop near the point. The new Delica has a distinctive ...

Re: Black S90V Delica with blue liners - KW exclusive

I preordered one and I might regret ... I should have preordered two... that black-blue combo looks cool and S90V is one of my favorite steels.

I prefer the straight spine Delica (shown with volcano grip). This is stock, no mods.

That's how a Delica should look like :spyder:

Re: The Superior Delica

You're all wrong :p The most superior Delica is the lil Matriarch. ;) IMHO this is the best length and shape for an EDC reverse S blade. It has just enough hook at the tip to puncture or pierce with the belly shallow enough and far enough back not to interfere with the tip like on the Cricket. I bo...

Re: Sage 5 Lightweight

I thought the whole point of the Sage series was to show off different lock designs. So IMHO instead of a LW version Spyderco should have came out with another lock. Hi Cbrstar, The FRN version is our attempt to get the design to more people, raise the quantities available, get the price lower and ...

Re: Tell us about your Spyderco Knife of the Year 2019

QI-ed Ikuchi and QI-ed Kapara are shoulder to shoulder in my case but I have to give the "Spydie Knife of the Year 2019" award to the gorgeous Kapara. For 2020 I hope and pray for a serrated Lil'Matriarch sprint and a high hollow grind Delica.

Help me find a discontinued Spyderco...

I hope I'm not breaking any rules here ... just let me know if I do :eek: I know there are a few dedicated sites to find a disco-ed spydie and of course there is the secondary market but I can't find this one anywhere and it's not a rare one so to speak ... yes, you guessed, it's about the serrated ...

Re: Dragonfly 2 vs Urban

One question for the recent owners of Urban: does the blade have a half stop (like Pingo)? I remember some videos I was watching previously mentioning that the mid stop is at 90% closed, some at 50% closed. I can only assume that the mid stop position was changed from 90 to 50% in later production....

Re: Dragonfly 2 vs Urban

Let me revive this topic a bit. I'm looking for an early Christmas gift from my wife :D I do own a G10 DF2 and it does slide into the pocket, however, holding it for longer periods of time cramps my hand quite a bit. Having a Pingo also, I see that it dissapears in the pocket, unlike DF2, which doe...

Re: The Superior Delica

My first Spyderco was an AUS-8 Delica, which I bought 22 years ago this month. Since then, I’ve acquired more iterations of the Delica than any other Spyderco model, and more than any other knife model from other brands. That said, I think there are some other models I like more. But for an all-aro...

Re: The Superior Delica

Two recent threads, one by Hobnob called Smile, it’s a Delica, and another by Tabo called Delica GITD FRN, made me pull out my Delicas. Upon doing so I got to wondering why I ever needed to buy another knife ? Every time something new comes along that seems to be a better solution I consider buying...

I would rather have the Dodofly. That blade is made for a choil.

The the matriarch style reverse S works best on the Delica's handle, but I would love to see an Endela handled one.

You nailed it ! That reverse S edge is perfect paired with the Delica handle.
