This sounds like the perfect knife! I love my current Native lightweight is S30V, but would love to have this is FFG! The knife just fits my hand like no other!
Bring it on!

akapennypincher, I'm not sure I am the best person to answer as I have the byrd Meadowlark II instead of the the Delica, but they are very similar knives. I love my Native FRN quite a bit more than my Meadowlark II, but I do realize that the Delica has better fit and finish than the Meadowlark II. T...

Nice review Capt'n!
Very clear and easy to understand. Just ordered me a Stretch, but I think this Delica will have to be following soon!

I'd leave the shape exactly as is. It's so perfect in ergonomics. Great design, Sal. We just need some sprints with different handle materials and blade steels. I don't know... titanium? Black G10? Aluminum? Tan or brown or olive drab FRN? Definitely keep the wire clip just how it is. It's my favor...

Yeah, that's pretty much what I figured. Unfortunately I am now living outside of the US so for the price of the knife it wouldn't be very cost effective. This is pretty disappointing as I read so many good reviews before I bought this. I know it isn't an expensive knife, but I thought it would hold...

byrd Meadowlark 2 blade play

My first "spyderco" was the byrd Meadowlark 2 about 1 1/2 years ago so I am relatively new to spyderco. Since then I have bought 3 other "real" spyderco knives and working on my 4th (a Stretch :D ) I still enjoy my Meadowlark 2, but about 3 months ago the blade developed quite a bit of up and down p...

I like them both myself, but I do lean towards the Centofante as it fits my hand so well! It is the best slicer I have ever had and is super sharp! I love the look of the hollow ground blade as it is one of the most unique shaped blades I have seen. The Delica is good, but it just seems kind of ordi...

I am torn. I really like the look of the Manix 2 lightweight (especially now that it has a screwed pivot), but I also like the Stretch. Which would you choose? I am a little worried that the Manix will be a tad too big for my pocket!

Yeah, I wasn't going to, but then I remembered a number of threads that had some really good advice but were never replied to so I have no idea whether the idea actually worked or not.
Hopefully others will read this and won't make the same mistake I did!

Finally pulled the trigger and bought a Dfly2 FRN SE. This thread could practically convince a non-knife lover to buy one! Now the wait begins as I currently live in Indonesia and it will be brought here from the States by a friend. Man, the second week in April seems like light years from now!

I can't say I like Spyderedge better than plain edge, but I just bought a Dragonfly 2 in Spyderedge as it is obviously a small blade and have heard a number of times that it will help a smaller knife cut like a bigger knife even with its small size. I haven't used it much at all yet, but it is very ...

Mike, Thanks a lot for your help with my Native lightweight! I used the WD-40 again to loosen it up and then the alcohol to clean it all out. It now opens and closes better than it ever has before. It is now back as my daily EDC as I love the way it just fits my hand. Thanks for taking the time to h...

Dear Deal4: Could you please try a few diagnositcs to see if we can get a better idea of the problem? Open the blade and, while carefully holding it open with one hand, work the back lock release repeatedly. Does it move smoothly? Does it seat the lock properly when released? Holding the knife in t...

Ok, no one shoot me for resurrecting an old thread, but now over a year later from when I bought my Native lightweight I am still having some major problems with getting it to open and close smoothly. I realize that with just FRN on S30V, this will never be the fastest deploying knife, but this is b...

I have been a spyderco fan for some time, but I am one of those people who hasn't bought a spyder-edge knife yet. I am looking at getting a Dragonfly 2 and am planning on PE.

I have had mine now for 5 months or so, and am so glad I went with it instead of the Delica! I really prefer the blade shape and ever though it is a tad longer than the Delica, the knife still just disappears in my pocket! It is by far my favorite EDC knife around the house or for normal usage. It i...

Had to post a comparison pic :) Both are very enjoyable :D The ZDP and H1 D'Flys ride with me almost every day. Whenever I want a larger slicer the Cento is there :) I wouldn't worry about the pinned construction on the Cento. It is a very well built featherweight knife. I wouldn't suggest using as...

I really like it which is why i voted for it! It is a very natural position for my thumb.
I don't find that it adds that much safety wise, but it makes for easier closing IMO.
