If this was in G10, this would have been PER-FECT. The DLC already kills it for me, and they did a snap-bang awesome job on the Purple CruWear PM2 (I'm loving mine).
But still kudos to DLT for bringing another Delica CruWear variant!
Don't hold your breath for another Delica with G10. As SNK found out, they're too expensive and don't sell well
I agree with the cost. I wasn't into Sprints and Exclusives when the SNK D4 dropped, and the high price sure was a sales killer.
But then, St. Nick's wasn't as known back then than they are now, and as far as I understand, there was no real hype for the SNK release as they and the other knife dealers are doing now with their exclusive releases on social media. Judging from recent releases it only takes a maximum of 5 minutes average to sell out a Spyderco exclusive these days. Looking at how the market has responded to exclusives, I have no doubt a decently-priced G10 Delica would sell out in less than an hour, maybe even minutes.
But then, wishful thinking here.

A TiCN coated Cru-ple G10 Delica would be a heck of a knife. As would a matching Endura and Dragonfly and Police. I truly hope they do this. I really believe this would be a totally different animal than the St Nick's Delica (I have many far flung theories for the lack of a single day sellout on that one, but the high cost is near the bottom of the list) and would sell out a minimum order with no problem. DLT hit a home run with that Coated Cru-ple combo. They need to milk it like BHQ and St Nick's. A DLC Cru-ple-carta Shaman would blow peoples minds!
Agreed! I personally love the Grape Cru-Aid (lol), DLT really pulled this one off, scale colors and all. For me a Delica and Para 3, heck, maybe even a Manix 2 in Cru-ple (I'll go with you on this one) would sell like hotcakes. DLT needs a theme like SNK with their Deadpool red and Cru-ple is the way forward!
