I Like My HAP40 Delica - Seems to take a beating

Postby dreadpirate » Wed May 27, 2020 11:44 am

It's one thing to read the specs on the steel, but it's another when you use it. I was using my HAP40 Delica to cut fasteners for vinyl siding that was badly faded (lots of them). I also had to cut some of the new fasteners short so they would fit in the masonry. It still has a pretty good edge. That despite slipping and hitting the bricks. Definitely would have killed the edge on my VG10 Delica. Although I kind of thought of it as a collector, the HAP40 Delica a great work knife.

I carry a Hap40 Caly 3 most days. It has become my sole user spyderco, though I have a ton of them waiting in the wings

Laminated HAP 40 is my most favorite steel of all I have experienced so far. Have the Endura and Stretch 1 in this steel..
Top three going by pocket-time: Endura 4 in VG 10/Micarta-scales; Stretch 1 in VG 10; Endura 4 in HAP 40

HAP40’s a great user steel. I’ve been using the HAP40 Dragonfly at work for a couple of weeks. It’s what I swap out to when I need more toughness than ZDP189.

Ditto... I'm recently new to HAP 40 and a long time user of Delica. HAP40 Delica easily rocks the VG10 Delica.
