So I've just started researching knives and have a Tenacious on the way. I think I want to get a delica next. I'm looking at the Spyderco Delica 4 Flat Ground 2-7/8" VG10 Satin Plain Blade, Orange FRN Handles and the Spyderco Delica 4 Wharncliffe Folding Knife 2.87" HAP40 Satin Plain Blade, Burnt Orange FRN Handles, Sprint Run - C11FPWCBORE. Ideas on which I should get first?
Are there any other currently available sprint runs or other models I should consider? thanks
From the sentence I emphasized in the quote, it seems that you intend to buy both variants. As others have already noted, the burnt orange, HAP40 Wharncliffe is a Sprint, so get it first because of the limited nature of sprint runs.
After you have that, I think you should get a Chaparral lightweight so you'll have a super thin slicer. The Chap will also let you try out the finger choil on the blade ergos that many of us love, and which have become as much of a Spyderco signature as the Delica. With your Tenacious, HAP 40 Delica, and the Chap you'll have a Spyderco each from China, Japan, and Taiwan. Then you can start trying to decide which Golden, CO, USA, Earth manufactured Spyderco you want. Or which you want first to be precise.
You've also come to the bar at happy hour. We'll enable and support your new Spyderco addiction.
