I have been carrying an XM-18 for awhile and gradually moving up the scale of utility and heavier work with the knife to explore the true utility of the knife as it isn't a knife which is designed purely to cut well, this is clear in the marketing. However while I have been using it to cut harder materials, metals, bones, and digging/prying with the tip I have also been doing the same thing with the sabre/flat Delica. As an unintentional aside I have come to a new appreciation of that knife and I could almost redo this video and replace XM-18 with Delica :
It also has me wondering just how hard a use do you need to actually exceed the handle / pivot ability of the Delica and how well this is balanced with the durability of the blade, something I will explore later but still while I have used the knives like the Military, Calypso Jr. in the past, this was one of the first times I carried the Delica as a primary knife for such an extended period of time. It isn't likely to replace the Paramilitary, but it is easy to see how it could be preferred by someone with a slightly different perspective on what is important.
