Delica Wharncliffe in ZDP-189. PLEASE!!!!

Postby Eli Chaps » Sat Mar 25, 2017 9:14 pm

So yeah, just a few days ago I developed a major crush on ZDP-189. The Delica is still my favorite Spyderco and I want that Wharncliffe Jazzelica real bad. So why not combine the two? :)

I know Sal said there would be a sprint run in HAP40 but why not a standard production offering in ZDP-189 like the regular Delica? I'm imagining the insane edge that straight blade would bring...

Please Uncle Sal. Please...

:D

Yep, ZDP, super blue, or Hap40 Wharnie Delica would pretty much be an insta-buy.

Any of those sprints would sell out at all dealers in a couple of days I would think.

I'd like to try that SE version as well!
(if not I'll probably just take the PE)

the wharncliffe delica is on the "to buy" list. zdp-189 would move it up...way up that list. i agree with the op, this steel coupled with that straight edge would definitely be an insane edge.

That's probably my biggest hang-up on the Wharnica... I don't hate VG-10, and I don't hate on VG-10 either, but I just prefer to get a better option if it's available. It's the same reason (but with S30V) that I'm waiting on a Para 3 sprint or S110V before I get one of those. So I'm really looking forward to the HAP40 sprint on this knife, or maybe a ZDP version.

I'm not saying I wouldn't like it, but I am about to praise VG10. I reprofiled 2 or 3 weeks ago (probably more), and it still cleanly slices paper. I steeled it, stropped on cardboard, and it sails through paper. I cut a lot of cardboard and banding, as you may know, and I'm quite impressed. Still highly enjoy the Delica wharnie at work, as in, a lot. Thanks, Sal. To me, VG10 is still a super steel.
- best wishes, Jazz.

Oh I like me some VG10 and I've got the receipts to prove it. :D

But after playing around with ZDP-189, I'm in lust and think it would be a great offering in this blade shape.

Of the already used Japanese steels I think ZDP would be my top choice for this model. I like vg10 and I love HAP40 but I think that ZDP would be outstanding in this little utility knife. I'll end up with one no matter what though.

My only Delica is ZDP.

I let my knives go way too long between sharpening, so ZDP is much better for me than VG-10. I've pretty much stopped buying VG-10 blades, which means I skipped the Wharnie Delica. I'd be into one in ZDP, though. :)

I doubt they'll offer that option, but H-1 would make perfect sense. I think there were chipping issues with SE blades made from ZDP. Edited to add: no, on second thought H-1 isn't easily flat ground in production, so not likely.

Isn't the Japanese translation for VG-10's name, something gold? It kind of reminds me of the KFC commercials. :)

I would like a ZDP version just for variation.
