Price is one of the points I touched on in my lengthily review of the Delica 4, but I think your point is more of a “comapared to” rather than a “is it worth it”, so I’m not gonna weigh in on that. And though I believe the Delica 4 to be just a bit overpriced, obviously it’s not so over priced as to keep me away given that I now own 4. But regarding the Delica 4 vs Chaparral price, from what I am seeing the Chaparral is $18 more, which is a good bit more than “only a couple dollars more”. And the fact that the Chaparral is literally only offered in one version is a major detractor for me personally. One of the things that I absolutely love about the Delica 4 is how many variations it is offered in...many different colors, different blade edges, different blade shapes, and even an Emerson Wave Opener If you desire.
It’s no secret that I absolutely love the Delica 4, but if my opinion counts for anything I certainly feel that it is still relevant. I did a ton of research and tried quite a few knives, in the end it was the Delica 4, and for good reason.
