Eagerly awaiting this knife's release... Any eta?Jazz wrote:I say it's more than fine how it is. I'll say this again though - we need another HAP 40 run of Delicas, please. Also, if you're any kind of Wharncliffe or straight edge fan, just wait til you get your hands on a Delica Wharnie, and if you're not, I think it'll change your mind.
The Tatanka come from Japan, I believe. I'm sure they can modify the lock design if they wanted to. Doing so may increase the thickness of the knife though which may be something they want to avoid.dplafoll wrote:One thing to remember is that the Chaparral is the only lockback from Taichung, and the Native is the only lockback from Golden, and the Delica family is all from Japan. They may not be able to do a whole lot to change the lock if that's how the Japan OEM(s) make their locks.
I'd like to know also. I really want a couple - nice shiny new VG 10 blades with the Spyderco logo on them. The proto is beautiful, but it's missing the bug. Also, I don't really want to wear it out any further. Maybe Sal will let us know soon. Should be quicker because it already has a handle made.Spydergirl88 wrote: Eagerly awaiting this knife's release... Any eta?
No more coating on the clip. It doesn't last.harronek wrote:The only changes needed are make Hap40 steel standard production , and improve the black paint on the clip so it doesn't wear off and scratch at the slightest bump and knock .

I'm just saying that I'd like a blade as close as possible to 3 inch .SpyderEdgeForever wrote:elena86 wrote:Stronger back lock , longer blade and silver clip should be enough.
Regarding the longer blade issue, isn't the Endura the "Longer Blade Version" of the Delica, and the Delica is the "Shorter Blade Version" of the Endura, that kind of thing?
Are you saying you would like to see a Delica with a blade length between its present length and that of the Endura, like a "Medium Sized Endura"?
The Lum Tanto sprint was supposed to be in burgundy paperstone. They switched to black/green g10 halfway through due to problems working with the paperstone. I did hold one of the paperstone versions and it is an interesting material. It is a shame they had to give upon it.Doc Dan wrote:I get you on that. I am fine with the length that it is, myself. But, I can understand someone wanted to have a Caly3 length blade in a Delica.
On another note, has anyone thought of Paperstone as a scale material? I am not certain how it would work on the Delica, but it feels good in the hand on knives I have seen that have this material.

I held 3 of those in Amsterdam 2 years ago and I'll tell you it's a huge shame they didn't work out, several of them were very awesome.dplafoll wrote:I know that they're working on a LOT of possible handle materials for the Chaparral and that several of them haven't been viable. That research ought to yield some positive results at some point.
