Thank you Sal for the pink Delica

When my wife saw it she squealed with joy. It’s pink! Plus I note it has S30v for icing. Thank you, Sal.

Hah, I saw the DLC and immediately said, "Finally!"

I'm not excited about it in any way. But, you know that Pink/DLC version is going to sell like crazy. Every chick getting out of their Black/Pink Jeeps at the mall will have one.

Lol. Yeah, for sure! I hope that the TiCN outsells the satin by miles so they will take the hint and start offering more TiCN coated models in the Seki lineup. I would have loved to have seen TiCN offered on the K390 models. Whatever little extra protection (or oil holding capability) is offered from the coating is welcome on corrosion prone steels like K390. I'll be grabbing a few of these TiCN Pink Delicas.

That blacked out Manbug Wharnie is pretty awesome too. I am getting a handful of these for all of my keychains. It is crazy to me that we still don't have a blacked out Dragonfly Salt with all of the people who have asked for one over the years. Equally crazy is no blacked out option for the standard FFG PE Delicas and Enduras? :confused: :(

Lol - and a few of us that have silver cars and hate malls, too! ;) But seriously, whatever it takes to get more women to try carrying a pocket knife is good with me. I'm not a big pink person (I have a pink SAK, only), but I think this pink and black is awesome.

My wife wouldn't be caught dead with something pink :p But I'm all for a few more black knives from Japan! I recently started a thread about getting the wharncliffe Delica with a black blade...

I'll be rockin' one. I'm actually hoping they do the TiCN coated Pink one in the Endura and Dragonfly as well. I think pink is good for public carry as well. Less frightening to the sheeple. :D

I actually think this color would be perfect for a Spyderhawk Salt SE Sprint since most people use them for yardwork. It will make it easy to see in the grass! And a lot of lady gardeners might be intrigued by a Pink Spyderhawk and Pink Tasman Salt SE.

Actually, the requests for more pink models came from the forums.

Thanks for listening Sal as always! And especially a HUGE thanks for including a TiCN version. No doubt in my mind that one will be a huge hit! See my comment above yours for more requests for more models. :D

No I'd easily have one if I was to buy an ordinary Delica! The coated one looks cool! :)

I will be buying both models. I love pink knives. I also have a friend that it will make a perfect gift for. Thank you.

Pink is fine. I'd certainly carry one. It is not my favorite color but my wife likes it.
Back in the 1800's and early 1900's pink was a boy's color and blue was for girls. It got swapped around for a reason I do not recall. I still wear pink shirts (I draw the line on pink pants though).

I'll carry a pink knife. I wear pink shirts (wearing one right now in fact). Pink is probably one of my favorite colors along with blue, purple and green. Don't care too much for TiCN coatings or any other coating, but I'll be buying both pink Delicas anyway if I can get my hands on them.

I'm not big on pink as a color in general; probably a conditioned response. One more thing on my long list of things to meditate on. For those who love love'em, I'm happy you will have this opportunity.

Both my grandfathers frequently wore pink shirts - one was a farmer, both were vets, and both were tough as nails. Both my sons like and wear pink, and my former Marine husband just bought a pair of running shoes with bright pink all over 'em. Pink being a "girl color" is nothing more than a marketing ploy.

I wear pink shirts. We are also working on a hat that is pink. We also needed new models for our cancer research donation.

Would definitely use a pink knife. Anything that's easy to see in the bush is a bonus for me.

Definitely not! The pink and black combo is gorgeous. Those and the toxic green Salts both tickled my *want* button. I’m a sucker for bright colors.
