I'll also add - my Delica feels more like a monolithic slab of FRN than FRN over metal liner; HOWEVER, my Sage LW certainly feels more like a veneer of FRN over metal liner. May have something to do with the different lock methods; regardless, I like the feel of the Delica better. Just seems more solid. I haven't seen any discussion on this so I may be delirious!cycleguy wrote: ↑Sat Oct 03, 2020 8:05 amI'm the exact opposite, but I'm sure others feel as you do. To me, FRN is the real deal when it comes to Spyderco, and the other materials are just knock offs when it comes to Seki models.
I never did take to the Para 3. Its size attracted me but there are others in this size class I like much better.
Pecking order: 1) Delica 4 FRN, 2) Sage/Sage LW (this is a very close 1 & 2).
All you can really do is try them and figure out what works for you.
