Delica 4. Just difference in models or fake?

Postby Barty » Sat Nov 25, 2017 10:39 am

Sorry to bother you guys with my silly question but I've searched everywhere and haven't found any valuable information regarding to my concern.
I have two delicas FFG (green and brown) and recently bought saber one (black) from ebay. And while two ffgs are exactly the same in everything, the saber has some differences. First, engraving is different - the font is different and looks like ffg has deeper and less accurate engravings (VG-10 is more like V8-10 and such). Second, the logo is different - on saber you can see "antennaes" have gap with the head while on ffg is like one piece head+antennaes. Other than that everything on my new saber grind delica looks like legit (frn is high quality, clip has same logo and tension, etc.)
I've heard that there are no delica clones (so far?)but i wonder is it just differences in different models (ffg vs saber) or it is different years of production or we finally got some pretty close clone?
Thanks for any input and stay sharp! :) :spyder:

Hi Barty,

Welcome to the Spyderco Forums. Spyderco changed the engraving style a few years ago. Your saber ground model appears to have the newer style font/engraving. Your brown ffg appears to have the older style.
Of all the things I've lost I miss my mind the most!

I compared your pictures to my saber Delica...they’re identical.
