For many people the Delica is the 'gateway' to Spyderco appreciation/addiction (delete to taste)
It's the quintessential small pocketknife Spyderco for my money- Like Goldilocks and the 3 Bears:
It's not too big or too small, it's not too aggressive or too twee, it's not too 'tactical' or too 'girlie', it's not too light or too heavy but just right
But in that regard, it doesn't 'shine' in any particular one aspect, which is why many people who buy them when they've 'cut their teeth' on other Spydies aren't wowed by the Delica.
There's no bells and whistles- VG10, FRN or Steel handles and a backlock aren't the stuff of white hot innovation these days, but I've a 12year old FRN Delica II that I have soundly battered to within an inch of it's life more than once- it still slices, cuts and locks up solid. What more could I ask for?
Warhammer 40000 is- basically- Lord Of The Rings on a cocktail of every drug known to man and genuine lunar dust, stuck in a blender with Alien, Mechwarrior, Dune, Starship Troopers, Fahrenheit 451 and Star Wars, bathed in blood, turned up to eleventy billion, set on fire, and catapulted off into space screaming "WAAAGH!" and waving a chainsaw sword- without the happy ending.
