Brand-new Forum Member. Not a knife collector as I see reside here, by any means - although I've owned a number of Spydies over the years since the early 1990's.
Currently own a Toxic Green Ladybug3 w/ hawkbill blade - and this one - a Burnt Orange Delica 4… (my absolute favorite Spyderco to date).
Immediately grabbed it when I discovered the 'burnt orange' handle - as I'm a Golden Gate Bridge Freak - and the color's close...
So did a Buy-It-Now off eBay - and thought - why not - I'll even grab an early serial numbered one - even just to carry and use. But when I opened the blade, I noticed the somewhat irregular deviation in the blade paralleling the plain edge (more in appearance than feel)...
Again - pardon my ignorance in not using appropriate knife nomenclature - but is it simply unfinished and escaped Q/C at Spyderco when flat grinding? Cut a thin piece of saran wrap - and she's bloody razor sharp… HAP40 steel - which from what I read is pretty impressive.
I plan on using it - so I'm assuming it wouldn't really make a difference as to this issue - unless it's collectable this way(???)
I would appreciate your comments as to the issue though - as I've never seen one like this - on any brand...
