I figure average of $200 each for around 15 Delicas =3k. I have no idea tho just guessing. Collecting Spydies is getting so much harder especially the last few years. Glad I don't collect. Can't afford it.

Yea eBay really put the brakes on the fun the past couple years. No more coupons, and now being taxed with every purchase...really puts a damper on paying for knives $150+, especially if shipping is included...it's suddenly around $180. We used to all get so excited for those coupons, we'd flock to eBay like there was some kind of sprint/exclusive being dropped :(
Currently have 20 :spyder: 's in 14 different steels.

Why the Delica?? That's an extremely daunting task for a knife that has been surpassed by many within it's price range these days. Do you know how many variations there are of the Delica over the years?? I'm sorry, but that's a crazy dream man! Hope you have A LOT of disposable income.

I don't think it's that daunting, as I'm only looking at Delica 4's, in FRN with the typical blade shapes...no wharnies or anything like that, so that's only 13 variations, not that bad.

And as far as other knives that have surpassed the Delica 4, we'll have to agree to disagree here. I think what one considers the perfect EDC is completely subjective, and for me, It's the Delica 4 all the way; perfect overall size, perfect blade size, great weight coming in at just 2.3/2.4oz, feels great in my hands, love the aesthetics of it both when closed and open, love the blade profile etc... There's not another knife that I can think of that offers everything the Delica does for me. I mean the Para 3 LW comes close, but even the Para 3 LW is a close second to the Delica 4 IMO.

But again, completely subjective, so I may disagree with you, but respect your opinion of course.

Nah, I don't think anywhere near $200, we're talking all FRN here, no crazy scales in Titanium or Carbon Fiber. I just picked up a Discontinued Damascus LNIB for under Street Price.

This can of course differ when getting to some of the "premium steels", but believe me, if I start seeing $200 prices for a Delica 4, I don't care what Delica 4, I can be out of this collecting decision as quickly as I entered it, and I'll just collect the ones that strike my fancy and price range :D

Just thought it was a cool idea.

Yeah it's a cool idea for sure just saying it might get expensive... I was picturing the 3 bone handled delicas in my mind (25th anniversary, blue bone sprint and orange bone sprint) plus trying to find a ffg pink frn sprint, and Superblue sprint

Ya, for sure, but I eliminated all of those, because I'm not really into them. No Bone, Titanium, or Carbon Fiber scales. The Pink FRN I thought about and passed. I also wasn't really into the LE or NASA releases either.

I may still eliminate some from my list of 13, as there are overlapping FRN colors. I really don't need every single "premium steel" Delica, as I don't find much use in my day to day of opening packages lol. I might just stick to the Delica's that stand out, like the neat Zome colors, or the Damascus I just purchased, I thought the Super Gold Steel represented by a gold lock bar was kinda neat, variations like this. In the end, might just be left with 10 or so to hunt down.

Believe you me, collecting knives is a lot less expensive than my watch collection :D

Man, this and the whole rosewood vs. pakkawood ordeal - I hope there's further clarification on future exclusives... Like I said before - sounds like a great base if you planned on swapping scales anyways

Not lost - just wondering why things aren't the way the dealers are describing them

The pakkawood REX 45 Shaman was originally sold as rosewood
This was sold as a black FRN handle with blue liners - paint is not a liner -

Terrible purchase, knife came with a large unremovable black stain on the blade like another purchaser in this thread, however knifeworks wants me to spend $15 for returning shipping lmao never using that site ever again. They couldn't even give me $20 store credit for the trouble im going through or offer to pay for shipping. Ridiculous and terrible customer service. BUYER BEWARE
Hi, antnap124:
I'm sorry to hear that you were disappointed. Please reach out to our Warranty & Repair Department for assistance. You'll find all of the information that you need here, https://www.spyderco.com/service-suppor ... ty-repair/.

You'll be in great hands with our crew.

Kristi
Reading this thread prompted me to open my other box from KnifeWorks that I was planning on gifting to a close friend. I needed to make sure that there aren’t any ugly black stains/discolorations before I do.

Opened the box. Emailed KnifeWorks straight away.

Was told in very polite fashion to pound sand.

“ I apologize for any inconvenience thai has caused. You have a warranty through Spyderco and maybe can try contacting them . Please feel free to reach out to me if you have any further questions or concerns. We appreciate your business and hope you have a great weekend!”

Looks like they still have these knives in stock, too.

Grab that Cruwear Delica while you still can & prices are still reasonable.
