I like the blade shape very much,
what is the name of this model?

Sorry I'm not very good
at identifying different models.

I took a look at the Ocelot,
nice blade shape, it said that the tip is quite thick and strong,
simple handle shape that maximizes the grip with a finger choil.

paw prints make it kinda cute :)

Its a VERY solid knife. I like my ocelots much more then the original. It feels very safe in the hand. Many people I show it to think the paw prints are a bit off but I love them. Paw prints or no paw prints, I put it up there with one of the most comfortable Spydercos I have ever held.

thanx for the feedback,

it looks like a solid knife, and the paw prints are a plus if you ask me,
people just need to really think about it.

I find the new Delica to be an improvement over previous ones. Nicer handle, the new clip is definitely better. I don't know that I am sold on the new tip. I kinda like the older tip style, but in due time this might prove better :)

Congrats Miguel. After using some knives with sharper, pointier (?) tips I know what you mean, but the Delica has that feel that it could take some serious use for it's size. Enjoy :)

Thanks Shawn! I got the Delica with the plastic integral clip, the Delica 3 and now this one. What would be considered the Delica 2?

The 2nd generation was the all stainless model.

I found this answer, from THE MAN himself. I thought the D2 would have the second type of steel or something, but I had to look because I haven't been into Spydies that long, so I didn't know either. Now we both know :)
That means that now you have to get an all stainless model..right?;-)

You have a sharp eye! Yes I put it on all my knives, unless it is not needed or suitable like the Sebie ;) . It also comes in handy as an emergency wire stripper!

Shike I am a knife newbie, what would the notch be for besides the emergency stripper?

Hi Shawn! It makes sharpening a little easier as it allows you to line up on the stone a lot better. Most :spyder: are not that thick there so it is not too bad but other knives are fairly thick so it makes it harder and then it leaves what some consider an unsightly mark on the back of the edge towards the ricasso.
I also like the way it looks on most knives ;)
